    rewrite the software totally, rendering the previous versions obsolete, then making the new version requiring a million little keys while it's installing, and if you get one digit wrong, it completely kills off your harddrive.

    Hmmm..... Couple things pop out of the ol' mind. Spam, nuke, Find out their address with NeoTrace and send them photos of where they live, crack into their site and do some damage. And that's only five seconds worth of thinking, imagine what and hour, day, or week could produce...So, yes i would be ........ed to!

    Yes, security measures that react violently to cracking Either we'd increase the revenue for computer repair and sales or increase the revenue for software sales. A win win situation

    If they crack my software, they'll have a lot worse things to deal with than me... They'll have to use whatever program they cracked!

    Oh yeah, then I'd hunt them down, and beat them up, and hurt them... and stuff. Nah, maybe just make them use my software - that'd be bad enough.
