Bzzt. Thank you for making my point
Copyright "works" are only protected if they are the produce of human creative expression (could not have been created by a stupid computer alone)
99,99999% of DRM keys obviously aren't.
Now you artificial unrepresentative example isn't, but IIRC in a similar case when Sega tried to lock its console by checking for the Sega word/logo at the beginning of ROMs, a judge ruled since the Sega word/logo use was 100% technical and the check could have been implemented by Sega the same way with a non trademarked/copyrighted/protected string/bitbucket, using Sega instead didn't win them any special additional protection.
Which again is academic because actual DRM keys do not look like yours.
