Any copy protection system that relies on the company who provided the software still being around should be removed, otherwise you probably will get locked out for good sooner or later. Fixing it to a specific machine is almost as bad, since if you change machines you're stuffed if the supplier vanishes. Dongles seem the least risky method, although new machines won't always have the same sockets as old ones, of course. Better still would be no need for copy protection in the first place.
