    No, they lost $10 million because they were selling snake oil. Not only that, they were relying on a feature of Windows to make it work.

    There will ALWAYS be a to cheat. Copy Protection is not the answer, but you could never tell that to the suits working at RIAA.

    that's absolutely right! someone will always find a way to beat the system... and don't get me started on the recording industry. it really cracks me up how these companies can charge millions and millions of dollars for pretty much nothing... i'm in the wrong business.

    anyone wanna start a company with me to produce a new copyright protection scheme? it goes something like this, first the recording industry will pay artists what they're worth and stop taking the biggest cut. second, they'll quit screwing the customers by charging rediculous prices for cds. last, they'll remember to keep their product customer friendly... wow, maybe then we won't need the security system anymore, because people won't mind buying cds again.
