Region coding is a controversial system enforced by the MPAA (Motion Picture Association Of America) that controls the distribution of DVDs in World Markets based on feature film release dates and other factors.

The World is divided into several DVD regions. DVD drives can only play DVDs that are coded for a specific region. In other words, you cannot buy a DVD in Japan (which is in DVD Region 2) and play it on a DVD drive or DVD player in the U.S., which is in DVD Region 1.

However, there are DVD players software available that can bypass the Region Code system. This kind of DVD player software is referred to as a Code Free DVD player.
