Bob Loblaw & Peter Howkins: While it may be true that cracked copies are floating around, that doesn't render the copy protection pointless. The copy protection does still prevent people from ignoring the licence conditions and installing it on more than one machine - sadly, otherwise legitimate users do IME have a tendency to do such things.

Chris Hughes: Technically, VRPC is a piece of Windows software, so the existence of a cracked version is primarily indicitive of software theft in that market, rather than the RISC OS one. Though, of course, it's probably safe to assume that the users of that version will have no qualms about obtaining unlicenced copies of other software to run on VRPC.
