Default CD/DVD Question

For my website, Im giving away CDs/DVDs for people that register and have a certain amount of posts. Is there anyway I can make it so you have to have the CD/DVD in the actually computer to play the video. Basically, I only want the person with the CD/DVD to watch the video, and not allow him to send it to other people or host it on the internet.

Is there any other way I could do it? Like maybe put it so you have to watch it on my sever with a login name or something.

There really isn't anything you can do (to my knowledge).... files on CD/DVD's can be coppied to the computer, or duplicate disc's made... Files over the internet can be saved, and even if you try to disable it, 99% of the time the user can copy it out of the internet cache, and still get it.

Even mass produced games with their advanced copy protecting that their developers pay alot of money for can reasonably easily be ripped down and distributed throughout the internet.... there isn't much that can be done really.
