To havhc:

Yes, that guarantee is a good idea - problem might be when the copy protection relies on some hardware features of the old system so that unprotecting is a problem. But a company advertising just that guarantee would be better off ... assuming that in case of bankrupcy or the like they still have the power and perhaps the needed permission to fulfill guarantee.

I think the best kind of copy protection is still to offer a good product at a reasonable price with the owner shown in the startup banner/info box. If the program is good and worth the money then more users are prepared to buy it.
