Well, I dunno if that's true, but I'm convinced that if an application fiddles with my boot sector it deserves to be pirated. Users have enough problems with viruses and so (in particular window$ ones....) without need of dumb protection schemes that does virus-like stuffs.
AFAIK many protection schemes do READ from hdd serials, network cards MAC and so... but never known about writing to boot sectors (at least, not on modern os, on good ol DOS it was common...)
