Hello.  What I'd like to do is have ideas or possibly an answer on a good way of providing a licensing system for someone who purchases a script.  For instance, if someone purchases the script, they could install and setup the program and enter a registration key to let the program run.  My problem is determining what the key looks for and how i can provide the key.  I'd really like to keep away from requiring the person to email me a unique number for me to manually run through a generator to provide the license.  Does anyone around have any experience with this sort of thing?  The script i have that i would like to generate a small income from is encrypted with sourceguardian so it's pretty safe from reverse engineering but i'd like to just provide an easy way for someone to register the program.
thanks very much!
