regardless of what they think you got to admit that for us just protecting the exe from cracks is easier to backup.
I just dont see why they go through all the trouble of burning special ways on a cd to prevent backups when all the real pirates have to do is crack the exe…then they can make all the copies they want with the modified exe…just common sense to me.
Dont you relieze (sic) that these guys know infinitely more about what hurts software
sales and how to handle this situation than yourself ?
LOL! I work for a major software company so the answer would be NO they dont have a clue…Mr. Macrovision comes in gives the top brass a rah rah speach on how thier copy protection will make our software pirate free…etc…management is clueless in these companies. Our company doesnt even bother with physical protection we just sell corperate licenses and dont support the product if your not licensed.
as far as using physical methods we dont use it and our software sells for 5,000$ a seat. Companies used to use that method back in the 90s i remember, some prolly still do though i cant name one.
just my 2 cents from a software exec. at a unnamed company…heheont thats initials are the third and first letters of the alphabet.
