Look I'm not talking about whips and chains level security. All I'm saying is, it's a psycological thing. If you're a computer programmer you know better, but most people aren't. Most people when they find out that the app communicates with my site will think twice about using a cracked copy.

And by the way if a user's ip is dynamic, the isp can still find out which user was on that ip at that time from their logs. But that's not even what I'm proposing. I'm only talking about psychological effect. I'm not even talking about actually suing people. I'm not talking about this as a 100% secure solution to software piracy. I'm sure you're aware there is no 100% secure solution. All we poor programmers are left to do is to try our best and do what we can.

It's like if I proposed using a padlock and a fence to protect my driveway and you say "What if people just use wire cutters?" Does that mean my driveway is no more secure with a fence than without? It's not binary, buddy, it's not "secure or insecure", it's "more secure or less secure".

Besides, it doesn't take much time to code. It's like an 8 minute job.
