But wouldn't making it harder... ie>making the pirates jump through more and more hoops, making it ever more difficult and sneaky to steal: Have the side effect of Average Joe pirate/weekend warrior (#2 on the list) saying it's not worth it / "not as easy as it "used to be" when i just had to click the button and poof instant [insert your own stolen IP here]"
