[QUOTE=James Lehmann;4206882] Can you explain how this applies to a book? I can theoretically photocopy a book as many times as I want and yet it doesn't suddenly refuse to open after I've read it 4 times.

If your legit software refuses to open, it is a different story; however, if your copied software refuses to open, that is how it should be.

I am sure if there was a way to place copy protection on a book, the publishers would have done so.

However, there are ways that software could be protected. And the publishers are protecting their property, just as you lock your studio door and turn on the alarm every time you leave.
