    Probably a newb question, but I see it referred to in many scripts. I understand it's some sort of protection. Also, why is it so bad?

    If a script calls home, the producer of the script sees that in his logfiles. It is easy for him to locate your website and take actions against you, if you use an illegal copy.

    It is very risky to use a script with active callbacks. So be careful.
