My personal feeling is that anti piracy measures limit the number of people who use cracked software and also slows the progress of pirated products invading the music computer.
Therefore these measures do not only effect legitimate users.
I haven't used an iLok for years, but most anti-pracy measures I've come across have worked well and not inconvenienced me in any way.
I think we are already paying extra for software, because the cracked copies are damaging legitimate sales. If anti-piracy measures get dropped by popular demand, we will most likely see much higher prices for those who want to stay within the legal system.
