Macrovision CDS-200 is an audio CD copy protection scheme from Macrovision, designed to prevent copyright infringement. Such discs contain software with the appearance of a computer virus[1] that attempts to install itself automatically before the disc is used on a computer. Macrovision claims the software is completely removed after the disc is removed.
