No expertise, but a very interesting topic!

Aren’t most copy protection schemes quite trivial to break these days, when Mac’s for instance enforce memory as non-executable, and have features like address space randomization on by default? I remember that things like iLok basically do tons of self inspections to see if code was modified, right?

I think the best copy protection schemes are: user loyalty, some quite useful cloud features and frequent updates (just make it hard to stay up to date…)
