Top crackers are looked at as heroes just look at DVD-Jon, for example.

Calling home would still be a necesity, but checking for CP updates doesn't sound as bad as these "call home" methods.

In the physical world, the impracticallity of duplicating something is what keeps copying/pirating/etc. to a relatively minimum level.
