Summary
  • Manufacturers acknowledge that copy-protection programs are very popular with users. Games and entertainment software are still protected, but business applications are dropping copy protection. Inability to prevent misappropriation of their products has led many manufacturers to abandon all attempts at copy protection. Ashton-Tate has eliminated it on dBase III and Framework, and Microsoft has done the same with Word. Micro-Pro has dropped its three-copy limit on WordStar 2000. Aldus Corp. is following suit with its PageMaker program. Complaints from users and orders lost to competitors have convinced software manufacturers that copy protection is not worth the trouble. It is now deemed more important to have access to frequent updates than to break copy protection.
