Why not use this for copy protection?
I was thinking about different methods for copy protection from pirates.
Why don't developers include one line of code in several places in a few of the files that is unique for each user.
For example, somewhere in the programming, put a code thats unique for each person who buys the product. This way, a developer could identify who the pirated program came from.
After all, every piece of software gets pirated eventually. Why should we (the buyers) have to go on a website or buy a USB key just to use a product that we paid money for?
Oh well, I don't know anything about copy protection, so that's my stupid idea for the day .
