Exactly. Part of it is a certain attitude, a mentality, that black
hatters have. The more difficult the ssecurity system is the more
determined the black hatter is to crack it. At that point it is less
to do with pirating the software than the thrill of breaking a
difficult security system, and being able to brag to his/her buddies
on the internet that he or she broke this or that security system.
Black hatters love to brag about their accomplishments, and there is
no glory in cracking something easy to crack.
