    Titanium Backup handles protected apps but you'll need root access.

    Apps are "protected" to prevent the user from transferring them to another device. i.e. theft.

    It's funny how copy protection always ends up negatively affecting the people who bought it legally while those who downloaded the pirated versions don't have the same problems.
