Copy protection is too much when it starts to hurt your product. I mean, yeah I want to add this copy protection so people don't make illegal copies but if that's gonna stop it from doing such a basic thing as installing I won't add it to my program. Of course I wouldn't use copyprotection anyway, but what are my choices, if I were. I could make a game and sell a few copies and everyone would copy it. Or I could make a game, add copy protection that would stop features from working or make it impossible to install, and everyone would return the game I would have sold no copies. Right now, copy protections aren't selling very well. They're trying to crame it down our throats and eventually one of two things will happen. The consumers will just accept it as is, or the companies will realise that the consumers will never accept it, and stop using it in their products..
