A USB license dongle is not a flash drive. If it breaks I would assume that Rockwell should replace it free of charge. In addition if it could be copied it would allow more than one instance of the software to run which I would guess is against the license.

Although you might feel it is in your right in my opinion it is asking about cracking which goes against the LQ rules.

FYI I have used software with license dongles.

One of those things that you loose and have to pay $2500 to replace or is it simply a flash drive with a file on it? Either way I'm not fully sure it fair use does cover it.
