Copy Protection?

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by Twice Retired, Aug 14, 2008.

  1. Three kids @ Chaparral, 15, 14, 14, seem to be able to break any software
    encryption. It took them all of 30 minutes to break the NEC code that
    several “experts” said was unbreakable.
    I was told many years ago that if someone was smart enough to copy-protect a
    program, then there was someone just a bit smarter who could break it.
