Question - does this mean that admin area will call back to boonex to license check the mod? This presents potential problems for some setups if so.

If not, then whats to stop me subscribing to a $100 mod for say $3 to 'test' it, then cancelling my subscription, keeping the mod. Then when I need to upgrade to latest version, I just pay another months $3 to renew my subscription, re-download...

Yes, this is the main challenge. Initially we would do this for those with Boonex subscription, which already checks for payment every month. A bit later it would work in a way similar to Trident - with built-in Store and monthly checkups.

so if a dolphin site/admin is not able to communicate with boonex servers, what happens? I have some major D based projects on the go that run on private intranets so would not link out to an external server for verification (everythings licensed so wouldnt be a problem by hyperthetically...)
Andrew Boon
I can see a few ways to manage this... perhaps a built-in usage tracker which would report module activity even after months of being "offline". You still need to open it up sometimes to check for updates. Surely, if a client is hellbent on pirating the module, they can probably manage to do so somehow, same as they can do it now. At least the vendor would know to provide support to only those that are paying.
