Default xbox live and backups?

sponsored links
Hey i got a question, is there a way for MS to make sure that backups dont run on xbox live (something like warez on pc where u cant play it online cuz of invalid cd keys), or if not, do u think cd keys will be coming to xbox live?

I read somewhere that the newer games released will have some kind of program that checks your bios, and if it isn't a particular one it will upgrade your bios so your chip won't work. I could be wrong but this is what I heard.

all i know is that i heard a rumor that if M$ catches you using a backup on live they tear up your subscription. but again this is speculation. i myself have tested burned beta versions of the game, which do work. and as far as the bios upgrade, i had moto gp update my bios and lost my evoX. but i went back into my xbox and put evoX back on and renamed the live dash to correspond with ms dashboard. now i read xbox-scene that a guy tried the go-live option on unreal beta and it crashed his xbox. something with the updated bios needed and evoX not working. but don't get freaked out, he did something else, i forgot what it was (it's listed on the site) and he fixed his box. so i don't know about any of you guys, but i won't be trying to play backups on live for a while.
