AquaticPrime for shareware
has released "the world's first" open-source software licensing system with AquaticPrime, a toolkit that helps shareware developers to protect their applications against software piracy. The AquaticPrime framework is a secure registration method for shareware applications, providing developers with flexibility and security, while remaining free from fees and copyright restrictions. AquaticPrime provides an application for license management along with source code and libraries suitable for use in both Cocoa and Carbon applications, and also provides a PHP-based implementation that can be used to generate license files on a webserver. AquaticPrime 1.0 is available immediately for download and is provided free of charge for users of Mac OS X 10.3 or later.
