Creating a system to fool the original copy protection is equivalent to create a universal crack in the fact that it is not letting the protection system do it's job correctly (or at all). So it can't be part of wine.

You can complain to the creators of the product and/or the copy protection, don't expect to much from this thought as on the box it isn't written that it is compatible with wine.
