Would I be able to playe copied blu ray discs? and dvds?
Cinavia is an audio "watermark" which, I believe, identifies the original source. It might say, "this sound was printed on an AACS protected BDROM". If you're not playing from the identified source the player is required to balk and will stop playing at least the sound and possibly the picture according to some complicated set of rules.
These players do incorporate Cinavia detection as do all player which shipped after February 2012; Cinavia is a requirement of AACS licensing (required to play commercial DRM'd discs) from that point forward. So if you want a player without Cinavia, go for a 2011 model, the BDT110, BDT210 or BDT300.Edited by michaeltscott - 1/29/13 at 10:44pm
