Leave them alone... They're busy rewriting the software to work exclusively with iLok2, under the claim that's its required for Lion, except that AVID released a Lion-compatible version of Pro-Tools 9 which stills works with old iLoks earlier this week.
I must say that I'm amazed at how willing people are to spend money on technology (iLok, iLok2, etc) that provides them no direct benefits. I also can't believe that software companies are still wasting development resources on these protection technologies in this economic climate. If they aren't making their sale numbers, it's not because of copy protection. It's because they are over-priced in a crowded market. The software reverb market has exploded over the last couple of years. You can now get very decent reverbs (VahallaRoom, EOS, etc) for a fraction of the Lexicon native prices.
