    Graceful Copy Protection in the Garritan Steinway: CP Finally Done Better?

    I want to tell you about what we have in store for the copy protection system in the Garritan Authorized Steinway and the new ARIA Engine that we'll be showing at NAMM. Some of you on chat may have already seen this.

    Many feel that copy protection schemes often pose more of a burden on the legitimate owners than to deter piracy. After being frustrated with copy-protection dongles and challenge/response systems ourselves, we decided to try something different.

    Our registration system will involve entering your serial number in our registration site and receiving a Graphical License Card. The graphic card contains all your persoanl information. You drag and drop the card onto the player and that's it! You're authorized.



    Simply Drag and Drop your Personalized Graphic Card Key onto the ARIA Player and you are Authorized


    A GRACEFUL REGISTRATION SYSTEM
    • Easy to Register
    • Easy to Save and Recover your License Information
    • Card Keys are Personalized
    • No Hassles
    • No Dongles
    • No Complicated Challenge/Response
    • You are allowed to use your products on multiple computers
    I hope this system will prove a welcome alternative to the CP methods currently on the market. Let me know what you think.

    See some of you at the NAMM show!

    As a paying user, this sounds great.

    I only hope that it also works for the working developer. (Gulp).

    Not only low hassle but it looks cool.

    Sounds good to me. I tried hard, and could not find a problem!

    You are the freaking king.

    I've heard that Ivory is now forcing a dongle on users. To do that with an already established product is foul. I'm sure a percentage of their users, like me, have a strict no-dongle policy.

    Oh well, no need for Ivory anyway--I'm glad I'm waiting for the good stuff!

    WOW!

    Excellent!

    Can we also order a hard copy, Gary? I'd be really cool to be carrying that along my credit cards (which I have none, btw, only debit cards! ) and blood donor cards, etc...

    Most excellent I say!

    Hello Gary,

    This sounds far more user friendly than the other methods. Once again you have come up with something far better than than what is presently on offer. This makes me think why no one else had thought of this before. You may well have started a revolution in copy protection

    Maybe you should also include credit card details on the key. Then anyone who is unscrupulous enough to circulate the software along with their own key will be circulating their credit details as well.
