Not sure I agree with this; dd makes a bitwise copy. As long as you
copy /dev/hdd (or whatever your CD device happens to be) and not
/dev/hdd1, the CD produced should be an exact replica of the orginal;
copy protection intact.
Some CDs employ bad sectors and shite, but dd should not care about those.
