There are no guarantees except one, and that one is that if you give up trying to stop piracy because it is hard, you will then have more.
Don't worry about those that arm themselves with every hacking tool known, and then invent some more and who will shield themselves behind fake name and IPs and subterfuge. These are few and far between.
What needs to be done is to make sure piracy isn't something the ordinary reader will endeavor to do. It should be made impossible for them, or very difficult, or not easy, or not nice. Any effort at any level has to help the author. Don't give up because you get bad mouthed.
