we've seen boards of TH Strikes Back sold in Korea before and they've been protected like the rest of them, although they could have been imports in the first place.
obviously unprotected versions are still interesting alt. versions even if the protection chips get dumped tho as there's a big difference between a set that was compiled without any of the protection code, and a set where we're emulating the protection device.
