Yeah, right. Don't forget the updates, patches and other stuff they release for their software. I would say that companys loose too much money for making or registering special protections. The only thing that is really good is the cd key. This is the only protection that is difficult to overcome. OK. Wait for Key Generators or other stuff, but for example, if you wanna play a special game like Diablo 2 or something else through the web, it is really difficult to get it work, cause somehow not all generated keys work or someone is using this cd key, so in my oppinion this is the only good protection. Not really, but cannot be overcomed by using Clonecd, g.
