there are rumours that pirates can copy an aacs protected disc's content. i don't know for sure, but if we assume that they can break aacs and do copy anything on disc:

1. is there a possibility that they can reuse my bd-j applications in their projects?

if there is,

1.1 is there a way to check if the disc my application running on is AACS valid or not, and not run anything if invalid?

1.2 is there a possibility for the pirates to get my source code?

(assume all jars signed)

I think the best way to protect your source code is to get it obfuscated before release. Jars are signed mainly to do specific works (e.g., ADA/BUDA access), not to be protected.

thanks, i'll make some research about obfuscation method.

are there any classes to learn the AACS validity of the disc?
