A number of web sites are reporting that apps in the Mac App Store can be pirated. While this seems to be news, it really isn’t in my opinion. As long as I can remember, software has been pirated no matter what developers have done to protect the software. Many applications use a simple user name and registration code for registering; some send a request to a web server to verify the request. In all cases, the software can be cracked by people that are unscrupulous and aren’t buying the software. Isn’t there other news to report on besides something that really doesn’t affect the average user that isn’t going to user pirated software?
