The BBC only has limited distribution rights for many of the programmes we broadcast and we take measures to stop unauthorised duplication of programmes in order to protect the rights of programme contributors and other rights holders.
For certain programmes (such as films), viewers will only be able to make a single Blu-ray copy (or other removable copy) of a recording.
Ofcom consulted on this issue and you can read their conclusions here.
