There are at least two versions of the copy protection out.  If you were
first in line for Mma 3.0 and got 3.0.0.0, then you got a machine
specific copy protection.  If you bought one a little later and got
3.0.0.1, you got a generic password.  I only know this because I bought
two licenses.  By the way, you just admitted to several hundred people
(including many Wolfram employees) that you violated your software
license.
