Nope, it just seem to me like there'd be no effectiveness, thus not worth the money.
The example of Apple repair shops checking serial# is nice, but sadly bike repair shops and pawn shops don't do this... bikes being too common and not-proprietary tech to have an equivalent to 'Apple certification'.
I suppose thats what this particular program is hoping to achieve, but sucess depends entirely on shops adopting the policy, which I'm having trouble seeing considering how many shops and flea markets and craigslist...
I don't do city registration either for much the same reason...
