Interesting stuff, but here's another question:

Do you need _highly restrictive licenses_ that let you only install
software on 1 computer, make ZERO or ONE backup copy, etc.
etc. etc.? Would it really make that huge a loss of profit if they,
say, let you make as many backups as you want, as long as
you use them strictly as backups? Or to install it on as many
computers as you want, as long as you or your organization
(if any) owns them?
