Discouraging Software Piracy Using Software Aging [chapter]

Markus Jakobsson, Michael K. Reiter
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
A novel feature of our approach is a software aging technique by which we force the updates to occur, or else the software becomes decreasingly useful over time.  ...  We define a protocol for "drop-in" upgrades of software that renders a large class of software piracy more traceable.  ...  We also introduce a novel method, software aging, for increasing the dependence on updates.  ...
