Protect Adobe Air Application
An Adobe Air application is a mix between an Internet based application and a traditional desktop application. The application gets installed or uninstalled on a computer like a desktop application, but executes within a controlled runtime environment. This paper describes how to monetize an Air application by protecting it with an activation process. Software activation is the process of enabling newly installed software to run on a specific computer. Software vendors use an activation process to ensure that only paid customers can run their software and to enforce license restrictions.
