Simply not worth the effort.  

The best way to get and keep loyal customers while deterring pirates is to make your product amazing, and release new updates to it on a regular, well-defined tempo, into a well-curated community that respects your work because you promote communication among your customers.  Customer loyalty is the best protection.

iLok is cracked.  Apple have got their devs on a ‘deprecated method’ treadmill of horror.  

And if you *really* want to be sure the investment in software development pays for itself: make hardware.  Custom firmware running on exotic DSP’s or well-fused microcontrollers, is the best dongle.
