Basically they are installing a "Rootkit" which will restrict how many digital copies can be made from the PC.
What the is this??? I mean they want to stop piracy but this is going a bit too far IMO.A 'root kit' generally refers to the nefarious malware used by hackers to gain control of a system. A root kit has several characteristics: it finds its way onto systems uninvited; endeavors to remain undetected; and then may either intercept system library routines and reroute them to its own routines, or replace system executables with its own, or both - all with the intention of gaining system level ownership of the computer.
I can see this coming back to bit them ... you know where.
