The reason I say 'the only good way' is because LED's are constant-current devices and all the drivers I'm familiar with are all designed around that, so you can't just go varying the voltage to try and dim them: the drivers aren't really voltage devices.
LED are Light Emitting Diodes. Diodes function as a switch- once you reach and surpass the 'turn on' voltage, the brightness of the diode remains constant. The only option is to apply the voltage to the diode as a wave.
Never rely on a promise to protect your rights. For all you know, they could go under, get sold to a new owner in bankruptcy court and the new owner could shut off the servers but not give up the licenses.
