Licensing controls?

Discussion in 'ASP .Net Building Controls' started by Christopher Ambler, Oct 10, 2003.

  1. I have a custom control that I have created and compiled into a DLL. I've
    had a number of clients tell me that they'd like to purchase the control.
    For clients, I have no problem giving them the DLL, as I'm sure they're not
    going to give it away. But if I want to sell the control in general, what
    ways do I have of preventing it from being pirated? With a custom control
    DLL, it's as simple as sending a copy to someone who can drop it in their
    bin directory and go to town with it.

    Is there some kind of licensing scheme I can implement?
