Cinavia is a watermarking system included in many Blu-rays and a few DVDs. It can mute the Blu-ray/DVD copy made from copyrighted sources and therefore it sabotages the reproduction of copyrighted Blu-rays/DVDs. It was announced that all Blu-ray players released after the Feb. of 2012 are mandatory to be Cinavia-enabled, but that is not totally true. As a matter of fact, there are players that don’t have their firmware updated or even don’t have Cinavia detector installed.
