    It's not a security feature, it's a way to undermine Adobe's Flash and Sun's Java. They just called this one a security feature.

    Remember kids: If it's not made by Microsoft, it's probably going to try to kill you in your sleep.

    (I wonder does Firefox or other browsers violate this patent?)

    There is a hack described in that page to get around the activation.
    Software patents.. what a brilliant idea!!!
