Heavily copy protecting Games is still possible, but with Audio CDs… All it takes is someone with a suitable Hi-Fi & PC with a digital/optical link. I.e. all it takes is one copy and it goes wild, like a small match to start a huge fire.

Yeah but for some hackers, hacking the code out of the EXE is as easy as hooking an Audio CD up to the sound card to be recorded. If you know what your doing. Like I’ve said before, copy-protection is like writing a book and trying to figure out how to stop the reader from copying parts of the book down on another piece of paper.

Stopping the casual copier is likened to spending pounds to save pennies.
