It could be, but perhaps RunRev hasn't figured out a business model to
make that viable yet.
Mind you, anyone could implement another similar or better protection.
What would be its purpose? Every single non-free "software protection"
mechanism can be broken, given enough motivation (or boredom).
Keep in mind the current protection in LiveCode is just an
implementaiton of DRM, or revenue protection, under a model that is
the opposite of what free open source software proposes.
