Question about Televison & Video
How do i make my Sony dvd player DVP-S570D region free?
Hello, I realize this is a bit late to get back to you on your request for help.
You may be way past the need for this. But, changing the region you live in on a DVD Player so you can play new DVDs or view a friends DVD is not a hack. The international copyright laws recognize you or your friend have already paid for the right to view these anytime, anywhere you want to do so.
The problem with a Sony DVD player in the modern era is that they will not play PAL encoded DVDs. PAL is an encoding spec. used in the EU and mostly anywhere outside the US.
You could take your DVD player to an authorized service center in the EU and tell them you want your PAL decoder enabled and Sony has to grant you this right. Its actually addressed as "Unlocking the Region Code." Sony has told all authorized repair center to comply with this request.
What it breaks down to is this in the law, International and US: When you purchase a Movie DVD yoiu have purchased the right to view the disc for as long as you want to until the DVD is no longer playable and even then you could get a replacement. No outside agency, Sony in this case, has the right to inhibit your rights.
Hope this helps empower your understanding of copyright laws.
