Copy protection on software only inconveniences the people who paid for the software. I pre-ordered Doom 3 for example and was able to download a cracked version 2 days before my CD arrived in the post. The cracked version ran from hard drive but the 'protected' one required the CD to be inserted at all times which was a pain in the ass. I had the same problem with Red Alert. With VRPC when I disabled an ethernet net card from my laptop because I was using a wireless one VRPC refused to run.
