The problem is with firmware you can upgrade it - thus meaning any code (even if you had a routine in place to check the header or signature or whatever) can be uploaded to the device and potentially remove any checks.
As said before in this thread if there is a way to actually put copy protection on something there must be a way to remove it. And it is only a matter of time.
I don't think there will ever be a time when theres nothing being pirated.
Even if things were free there'd still be somebody out there who would want to do something different.
