This kind of protection scheme is rather useless, especially, as there
are so many programs that are based on the user name, and those who
used this system were obviously happy. I never liked software linked
to a particular hardware device, and never purchased said software for
this very reason. So, in the end, from my perspective at least, it
certainly kept the developer from making profit on me--and I presume,
others. And now, it's a real mess for those who spent their good
money, trusting these developers.
