    Planning on adding licensing to a (.Net) product I'm working on and haven't ever needed to worry about licensing in the past.

    Any software devs here have a preferred 3rd party licensing product they use?

    Right now looking at http://www.softworkz.com. It's cloud-based, so the validation and license creation are all on their servers.

    Other options--
    http://www.nalpeiron.com/
    netlicensing.io
    http://docs.licensespot.com/sell/store-integration/
    http://www.eziriz.com/intellilock.htm (cracked)



    Previous posts here are sort of helpful but a little old:

    Why not creating one yourself? It's easy to do and you get full controll over your implemtations.

    If you're already a programmer, can you not roll your own and save paying fees to someone else? Should be able to knock one up in a few hours.
