Fundamentally, I want to eliminate piracy by making the batterychip the most persuasive economic choice for the majority of users. As with all other schemes, when we try to build a better technical mousetrap, we just incite smarter mice. Better to figure out a way to make them buy the cheese of their own accord. Perhaps the batterychip's memory will be programmed at the factory, using a device that is relatively expensive and not generally available to the public. Then it would be cheaper just to buy a new batterychip instead of copying the software from an existing one and trying to "reburn" it onto an older batterychip. But, fundamentally, I am not trying to address software piracy with this proposal. It may have some fortuitous side effects, but that is incidental.
