Restricting Windows Media player

By crbarahona ·
Is it possible for me to restrict the ability to copy music from CD? Our teachers have a tendancy to copy music onto my computers. Although it's not lilegal for them to copy their own music. It is illegal for our university to have copyrighted media on our computers. Short of restrict access to WMP all together what can I do?

Do you have an acceptable use policy? If you do and they violate it, then follow the policy would be my advice.

This issue has been discussed here in the forums in the past several times.

It is possible to use group policy to restrict media player to use certain skins, i.e. select one other than full mode. Without full mode they can't do anything other than play files. I think it's in the Media player administrative template, but let me know if you can't find the setting and I'll look it up on my setup.

In doug Knox's XP Second security console there is a CD Burning restriction policy you can implement on your system you could try that.
( it works.
