Unfortunately, that isn't true. The DMCA makes it illegal (in the US) to circumvent and copy-protection technologies, even if you own the product. Because of this it is illegal to make backup copies of copy-protected software that you own or watch DVD movies on Linux despite the fact the the fair-use laws specifically allows this. Sign the anti-DMCA petition to try to put a stop to this stupidity. http://www.petitiononline.com/nixdmca/petition.html

Well this is hugely debate-able! There is also a law that permits us (quite contrarily to the above mentioned) to make back-up copies of any media we have purchased to protect us consumers from losing something we have paid to own. So I am waiting for a good old law suit to come out (finally) and get this huge contradiction sorted out (or as you mention the anti-DMCA petition could ultimately straighten things out before a major lawsuit ever occurs.) At any rate, I choose to put more wait (personally) on the law that allows me to make a back-up copy of any media I have rightfully purchased--Then if some day some big corporation decides they want to sue me maybe I will become that needed big lawsuit to finally settle which law "wins" over the other. In the meantime I wouldn't sweat "cracks" too much.

line72 did the registry hack work? How did you do it? Did you find another way to get it working? Hows it going?

Let us know whats up!

Thanks,
