Our products are copyrighted, so making any unauthorized copies is illegal. If you need additional copies, please contact us. Training industry videos and all written materials are protected by U.S. and international copyright laws.
Q: Why is it illegal to train with an online preview?
In the training industry, we don't actually sell videos, we sell a "license to train", with a particular medium. When we offer a potential customer a free online "preview-only" for purchase evaluation only, it is "unlicensed". Therefore, it is illegal to use the preview-only video for training. Training industry videos and all written materials are protected by the U.S. and international copyright laws.
Q: What is the penalty for making an illegal copy of a video?
The Copyright Act allows a copyright owner to recover monetary damages measured either by: (1) actual damages plus any additional profits of the infringer attributable to the infringement, or (2) statutory damages, of up to $150,000 for each copyrighted work infringed.
The copyright owner also has the right to permanently enjoin an infringer from engaging in further infringing activities and may be awarded costs and attorneys' fees. The law also permits destruction or other reasonable disposition of all infringing copies and devices by which infringing copies have been made or used in violation of the copyright owner's exclusive rights. In cases of willful infringement, criminal penalties may also be assessed.
DVD and USB
Q: Why does my DVD won't play?
You might be using DVD player software that is incompatible with the product since our products are copy-protected. We recommend using Microsoft DVD Player (available for purchase on the Microsoft Store website). Windows no longer include DVD software that can play copy-protected DVDs, and VLC player no longer supports encrypted DVD playback.
Q: When I try to play the DVD, I get a “Region Error code”?
Our DVDs are encoded to playback in “All Regions”. If you receive this error, it is likely due to your DVD software. Please contact your software’s support for assistance.
Q: Why does my USB not work on my PC?
You may have antivirus software that blocks the USB from running. Please contact your IT department. Additionally, we recommend allowing PCViewer.exe permission to play in your security settings. You can do this through the following steps: Windows Security --> Firewall & network protection --> Allow an app through firewall --> choose PCViewer.exe
Q: Can I save the contents of the USB key to my computer?
You may save the support materials to your computer. However, you cannot save the course mp4 file – it will only run using the PC or Mac viewer software on your USB key.
Q: Why does the USB take a long time to load?
The USB’s encryption software takes time to load the videos. If the load time exceeds one minute, please contact Media Partners Support.
In some cases, the USB takes longer to load on Macs than on PCs. This is due to a change in QuickTime, which now requires decrypting the entire video. We recommend updating QuickTime and closing all open programs while viewing the USB.
Q: Why are the audio and video are out of sync?
This is usually due to outdated video drivers, or insufficient RAM. Please update your computer's video drivers and ensure that there is enough RAM to run the USB. Exiting all unused programs on your computer can increase available RAM.
