    Well I can answer part of your questions. As far as I know all DVD's have some kind of protection which includes the ones from a rental store like Blockbuster. As for the rest I don't have any idea's.

    The discs have macrovision, but also some players do to!. Players that disable macrovision should overwrite the discs protection

    be sure to check online for a review or specs of the machine you are thinking of getting, just to make sure
