Looking for help in android app

I have a requirement like song playing in offline mode (like saavan), where the song should not be downloaded but it should be played with in the app and also the song should not be played by any other players nor copied back to any other PC's. To make sure that we have copyrighted data.

I have did some R&D on that and came to know that I would be require to encode the data so that it can be played by my app player. But I might be finding some more help in real understanding the behavior of the app coming to challenges that are to be faced and precautions to be taken care.

Any help highly appreciated.

You can store the song as small pieces in different variables, then concatenate the variables and play the result (or even play the variables one after the other). We used to hide copyright notices that way - a few characters here, a few there, a hidden routine to grab them all and display the copyright notice on the screen.

A few bars of music look like random data.
