Hello programmers.
Lend me a little bit of your time and knowledge.

 

I'm also developing a useful tool, can I sell it?

 

When pursuing convenience, purchase-out distribution is probably the most effective.
However, I am afraid that it will be illegally duplicated by the buyer.

 

I think that setting up a license server and activating online is an effective way to prevent malicious users from illegally copying.

 

Is it possible to do that with ExtendScript?

I don't know much yet, and I don't know if I need another method such as SDK.

I've never done licensing in pure JSX, only via CEP panels, but if you can execute cURL via script or shell/bash/VAT/VBA files (via File.execute()) and presumably if you're using something like Gumroad for licensing then it may be possible to authenticate it on script startup, but this locks usage to online only and you'd want to obfuscate it as JSXBin otherwise it would be relatively easy to remove the startup auth code as a means to bypass it.
