Default SD card - copyright protection?

I just bought a Panasonic 256 SD card. It says on the package cover that it has copyright protection and a write protect lock. I know what the lock is, but what do they mean by copyright protection? I'd heard this before about SD cards, but never find anywhere how to use it. The instruction sheet doesn't mention it at all. Is there something different about SD over the other types (xd, cf, etc.), besides the write protect switch?
Thanks.

Thanks!
It doesn't look like that feature will be very relevant to my uses, but nice to know.
I did learn something else from that site, though. I had thought that my DVD player would not play the .avi movies my camera records, if I were to burn them to a CD-R. I learned that MP3 format is a version of MPEG-1, so I wonder if I could convert the files to MPEG-1, then play them with the MP-3 feature of the DVD player? Can't hurt to try, I guess...
