Software Licensing for Software Proprietors

By: Anat

In the rapidly-changing software market, vendors need maximum flexibility to license softwarethat best fits each market segment. Change comes quickly, and must be implemented immediately - and needs to adapt
accordingly.

How does Software Licensing Work?
Software licensing allows software proprietors to issue licensed software that the licensee is permitted to use in compliance with the specific terms of the license.

With dynamic software licensing, vendors can change their pricing and packaging without changing their products. Licensing changes can be made using a simple, friendly web-based interface that can be transferred to the user via the web, email, or even over the phone.
Models

Pay-Per-Use
Restrictions may be set per feature (i.e. number of documents to be processed) in order to price certain portions of the application according to ongoing use.

Pay-Per-Time
The software vendor can limit the time which the application or a specific feature can be used. Settings can be applied in advance per time quota.

On-Demand License Management systems should offer a variety of models such as pay-per-use, floating licenses, limitation of number of installations per license, and many more.
