Effective limitation of transmission of the product is always going to be the extra expensive add-on which can only be fitted and serviced by OEM. To imagine a third party custom made item/process/program as effective in limitation presupposes an original design which permits foreign tinkering and that would be a spin off root for lessor systems.
