  Copy prevention - Open Encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Copy prevention is often hotly debated, and is sometimes thought to infringe on customers's property rights: for example, the right to make a backup copy of a videotape they have purchased, or to install and use computer software on multiple computers.
Since this basic technical fact exists, copy prevention is not intended to stop professional operations involved in the unauthorized mass duplication of media, but rather to stop casual copying in which one friend makes a copy of a disc for another friend and thus (arguably) decreases the possible market for that disc by one copy.
Copy prevention is a neutral term which simply describes the purpose of the technology without passing judgment on whether the act of copying is inherently damaging.

U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona is trying to educate the public and policymakers on the importance of disease prevention.

Prevention is far cheaper than treating full-blown diseases, but that's actually part of the problem the Surgeon General is running up against: organized medicine doesn't really want people to prevent diseases, since that would mean a drop in prescription drug profits, lab tests, surgeries and other big revenue producers for the medical industry.
