Great. Please put a big warning notice on your application:

The author of this program believes that he controls your usage of it,
to the extent that a legitimately-purchased copy will refuse to run if
you upgrade your computer's hardware.
It is therefore recommended that you pirate this program as per XKCD 488.
If you don't like this, don't use the program.

At least then you'll be being honest.
