Thanks for your input. We are trying to protect our work. I don't like all the hard work I put into making these lessons getting ripped off. I don't teach just for fun, I do it to help earn a living. Always trying to make using the Riff Interactive software easier and better for you, the student.
I have no problem with people protecting their work. All it takes is 50 people who have the same rant as I do to tell 50 other people and so on and you might be doing it only for fun.
At some point the lack of sales due to annoying authorization may not be worth the price of risking piracy. So far Cakewalk has decided to put faith in it's current users to keep them afloat. Izotope was going to have their products protected by PACE until they got a flood of emails of consumers said they would no longer buy their products.
There are 2 sides to every coin.
I like that I can get RI lessons without waiting in the mail but getting the license reissue takes about as long.
Until this is improved your sales will be slow from this consumer. I have 14 purchases from RI (not including ones I bought as gifts). 12 Cds, 2 software. Feel free to look that up and verify.
