          Why do you need BinaryIO for this?
          Your player could create a global object and your movie could request a value from that object. If the movie is played in another player, the global object will either not exist, or it will not know how to return the expected values. Your movie can then simply call "halt", and the pirate player will stop.

          ** In the movie that you embed in your projector **
          -- Movie Script
          on prepareMovie()
          end prepareMovie

          -- Parent Script "Authorization"
          on new(me)
          (the globals)[#goAuthorization] = me
          end new

          on GetAuthorization(me, aInput)
          case aInput of
          return #expectedOutput
          end case

          return #illegalInput
          end GetAuthorization

          ** In your protected movie **
          on startMovie()
          global goAuthorization

          vSuccess = FALSE

          if ilk(goAuthorization) = #instance then
          vResult = goAuthorization.GetAuthorization(#correctInput)

          if vResult = #expectedOutput then
          vSuccess = TRUE
          end if
          end if

          if not vSuccess then
          alert "Please use the designated player for this movie"
          end if
          end startMovie

                In a private message, you indicated that the "movie" that you wish to protect is not a Director movie but a video file. I'm afraid that I do not know any way to prevent an unscrupulous user from copying an external video file while it is playing.

                Can you stream the video from a website, rather than making it available on the user's local disk?
