Someone will find a patch to combat it though. Thas usually the case.

They have, and I know someone who has done it. For me however there are real advantages in having a "proper" copy. (apart from the legality point)

Has anyone seen this yet? First I've heard of it and the article was dated April 30th.

it's about time companies like Microsoft start to charge reasonable prices for their software-once it becomes too dear,people are always going to find ways of getting it cheaper or an alternative-sadly this means going the piracy route for some.Same is true with ilegal music downloads,the cost of the cd is way off the mark-there is a theory the whole thing costs less than 50p to make but look at the prices in shops-unbelievable!

Yes I do have the legal copy!
