Apple copies Windows Genuine Advantage DRM

Posted on Friday, December 28 2007 @ 00:06:04 CET by


Apple filed a patent for a technology similar to Microsoft's Windows Genuine Advantage:
Apple have been doing wonderful things this year to really miff its loyal fan base and it seems it wanted to close the year by nicking the thing that annoys even the most loyal Microsoft user.

The outfit has updated the patent application it calls "Run-time Code Injection to Perform Checks".

This patent tells the story of how Apple boffins invented the idea of a digital rights management system that could restrict use of an application to specific hardware platforms.

Apparently, the software phones home for an authenticity check.

If the software is pirated then Jobs Mob shall deem the software unworthy in its sight and make it unusable.
