In principle this is right, but if your disk becomes too scratchy, then you won't get any replacement disk from them (like I already wrote in my "A Thought" topic).

One of the far beter copy protections is that of the game called Zanzarah which you most likely might not know:

If the disk isn't in its drive, then the own fairy (you let battle with other fairies) becomes far too weak … Meanwhile the opponent's fairies become too strong …
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
