Ahh trying to rationalize theft. Not very interesting.
That's not the way I read it but hey, to each their own.
That is not what he is doing, he is pointing out the absurdity of going after the thieves by making your software harder to use. I know people that have legitimate copies of Windows who have had then deactivated because Microsoft implemented DRM and screwed up. There are two ways for an intelligent person to react to being told something they spent hard earned money on no longer works because other people stole copies of it. Neither of them involve going out and spending more money to buy another copy of the product.
Believe it or not, there are some companies that understand that.

Friends don't let friends use proprietary software.
SalineOS, Debian and Mint mi amigos. The rest is bullshit.( Mac aint bad but their hardware sux)
Obviously you didn't read it though I'm not so sure I completely agree with the second article's premise, aspects of it but not the whole premise.
The first article, if you had taken the time to read it, was a no nonsense assessment of software piracy and protections while also taking an unavoidable negative and showing the potential positives that can be derived. Any good, realistic security assessment will do that and that's something I am familiar with.
It's good to be robbed! That's how I read it too.
Are you a business man or an employee? That is the difference in understanding the author's intent.
It is a simple cost/benefit analysis of the situation. Rather than trying to prevent piracy you should sell customer service, and make sure that it only goes to people who actually own a legitimate copy of your software.
