NOSKIPAD Violation

Some DVD video discs have unskippable adverts

Status: Current — The violation is standing.

It should be emphasized that this is not a defect in the DVD specification but is rather a case of how the specification is exploited by some parties, using the DVD UOP (User Operation Prohibition) feature.

A countermeasure may be some form of DVD player which selectively or unilaterally ignores UOP flags.
