RE: removing authorization key, putting it back later

I don't know about that.  As far as I know, you can duplicate the
physical media to your heart's content.  Obviously, you cant give it
away to friends (you could, but what good would it do?), so making
insurance copies does no harm to anyone.

hmm..  Just a thought, does the authorization scheme of fs and soon,
vista, 
violate the concept of fair use?  I'm not a legal person, but just
wondering. 
For example, if you've ever read a user lisence aggreement for MS Word
it says 
that you can make one backup coppy for personal use.  We can't
effectibely do 
this with Jaws.
