In reply to mavhc: I guess they believe so and I think they do prevent the normal user to pass the software on to a friend or the like. But sometimes the copy protection is a hassle for the legitimate user and then they have to consider if the cut in sales to to users not accepting that hassle is less than the loss in sales due to having a more user-friendly copy protection.
