    Hello Ashraf,

    About 4 years ago, Intel introduced the possibility of retrieving the serial number for Intel Pentium III processors. But there was a lot of protest against this, people saw it as a breach of privacy and were afraid that this possibility would be used for unintended purposes. As a result, Intel decided to turn this possibility off by default. I don't know what the situation is for other processor brands, such as AMD.

    If you really want to prevent this copying of your databases, there is software available that will do it for you. One is www.crypkey.com, but you can find others by doing a Google search on "software copy protection". These products give you the ability to send out a shareware version, giving potential buyers a certain amount of time or # of uses to register the product before disabling it.

    MAC Address would probably be easier. Though NIC's can change, so you would need to allow for a simple 're-registration' if someone changed their MAC Address.
