And run it in what software? Photoshop 7?
No, I'll run it in Photoshop CS3 -- and what's more, on Windows XP. The key words in my post were "reasonable alternative". I'll reluctantly put up with Product Activation where I have to, if I have to. Who knows? After checking out the alternatives I might decide that I need PKS. And if so, I'll hold my nose while activating it (I hope you'll have improved the esellerate "experience" by then).
If you've found your products on Warez sites, I hope you don't expect that to change because of your decision to use activation. They're just waiting for you to come out with the final version. All you've done is to make using and buying your products more difficult for the folks who actually want to PAY you.
Yes, I do lock my house (usually). But if I were renting my house, and I had to call the landlord for a new key whenever I changed my socks -- I'd have a problem with that.
