Pardon me for saying this, but this is one of the sorriest
schemes I've ever heard about. The only place this would be
applicable is at the low end (PC's) as larger system normally
bundle this software in their distribution. And businesses that
purchase larger systems generally aren't going to risk the
penalties for license violation for those system.

Now take it a little further. The PC's don't generally talk to
each other, so who's going to know if you copy the software? In
the absolute worst case, the two systems can use an intermediary
to communicate.

Also, how do you deal with site license where you provide masters
and let them make the copies?

Your best bet is to trust your customers, make good software, and
price it competatively.
