Google’s Licensing system defeated?

Since Google’s announcement of a new app protection system last month, I’ve heard numerous complaints about the general approach of the protection: it requires a data connection, which isn’t always available for everyone. And while “Justin Case” of Android Police thinks Google’s LVL is the best copy protection for Android apps to date, he has found flaws – serious flaws that render the protection useless for those with a bit of time, know-how, and willingness to steal. Head on over to Android Police for the technical details on this hack, or just watch the video below to get the gist.

The author mentions that it would be possible to automatically patch and distribute pirated apps via scripts. Sounds like something Google might want to take a look at.
