I think it ceases to be a copy protection scheme when It ceases to do just that... what geohot cracked wasn't a mere copy protecton scheme I was a means of Sony retaining full control of devices that customers have purchased so that Sony could remove any feature or capability of the device they wanted. The threat of that along ought to be enough grounds for the hack.
