I think someone said that there was no need for any sort of copy protection with RISC OS because there really wasn't any software piracy. I've just caught someone on ebay blatently trying to sell 3 CDs of my software. Needless to say they aren't there any more, so although most people are honest don't be under the illusion that everyone is.

In such a small marketplace even quite a small amount of piracy taking money away from the few companies remaining does very serious damage.
