yes, and it's exactly the same as the "safety features" of purchased DVDs.

DVD players output a defective NTSC signal in the form of macrovision. Modern
TV sets are built to ignore the defect while modern VCRs will either record at a
constantly changing brightness level or refuse to record at all.

And the DVRs will issue a note on the screen and say 'prohibited'.

Rental dvds are the same as the ones you buy in a store, they both have the
same copyright protection.

===============================
If you are in the US, there is NO difference between rental DVDs and the
ones you buy.
They are all the same.
Many have copy protection.
