Response to: Those who do not learn from history.

You quoted me to say that "the vast majority of software pirates...." and then make you point by saying that "The vast majority do not need to break the obfuscation. Just one." I agree with you since that seems agreeable what I was trying to communicate in the first place: deterrence goes a long way (not that obfuscation is your end-all solution for securing anything).


Ditto on my other response about obfuscation and security. I still stand by it.


BTW, I totally appreciate the feedback and thought that readers put into these replies. I'm engaging in a dialogue, because I find it interesting and even a little bit fun. Hopefully, others find it just as fun to read through and think about.
