This is a loosing game again.
Try as they might, use six months to figure out their next move, it will take a seasoned programmer/reverser an evening to find a circumvention... In my view, they have lost this already, before they even started.
While a little off topic, but as a little historical aspect. Back in 1990 I said the same about protecting software and given that the protections are still cracked 26 years later I note I was correct, forever will be (in this respect, a simple serial to stop Jane and John Doe is all you need, honest people pay for good software).
