The problem with layout + copy protection is that no matter what the manufacturer is also an effort, it will be over sooner or later copy protection cracked again.
Unfortunately, I must say. There are even rumors, that Starforce has been cracked already ofteren of, and pays to the hardest of the entire market.
So, it is only a matter of time before the Securerom cracked.
Only the honest buyer is always the stupid ones. As always,
And as far as the so-called low budgeting games (Green Pepper, back to Games, Software pyramid, etc.). Whether there is removed the copy protection is not always such a question.
