In some cases, serial numbers are included with the commercial software.
However, that is irrelevant: the licence agreements for the sofware are
still being violoated.

The only way to avoid risk is to delete the illegal copies of the
commercial software completely. None of comercial developers want to shut
off a valuable resource to Newton users, but it has to be done above

Anyone thinking of hosting NewtonMAD should be sure to get appropriate
legal advice first.
