Hi, I want to implement a basic license key verification system into my software. I know the basics of python and pygame, etc, but I've never read anything about implementing this type of drm into my software. Quite frankly, I don't even know where to start. Yes, I understand that this won't keep people from pirating my software, and simply put, I could care less if they do, because no matter what drm I use it will be pirated. HOWEVER, what I want is to keep honest people, well... honest. Think of it like a key to a filing cabinet... …

I started getting malicious web errors. The source was a file named "AcroGLext.dll". In a main folder called "DRMMaindrm". I can not find any information on this file or how important it is. Thank you in advance for the help. James

EDIT: Deleted the original question. After reading, I realised that I would have to paste so much additional code that it would take someone a couple of days just to understand what was happening in my own code that it may detract from the issue at hand. Problem: When I add an object to a collection (many-to-many relationship) the object is saved and committed to the database. However, if I then try and retrieve that object somewhere else (on a different thread) the object state is incorrect and the collection does not contain the recently added item. Checking the database …

It has been a long time coming, but Apple has finally announced that iTunes is going DRM-free. As in, all songs on the iTunes site will ditch DRM. That's everything from Universal Music Group, Sony BMG, Warner Music Group and EMI along with thousands of indie labels. All with their musical offerings now available in the iTunes Plus DRM-free format. According to Apple the iTunes Store will begin offering eight million songs in the DRM-free format immediately, with the remaining two million songs offered in iTunes Plus by the end of March. But at what cost? Apple might have ditched …

As publishers go, O'Reilly has managed to build itself quite a reputation as a forward thinking company. Not only for the way in which it tackles emerging and niche technologies from the developer perspective, but also for being something of a pioneer in making them available in a digital format. The Safari Books Online service being a hugely successful venture, with O'Reilly claiming it generated more revenue than "typically associated with the entire downloadable ebook business." It has now decided to go one step further and make at least some of its catalogue of titles available [URL="http://toc.oreilly.com/2008/06/select-oreilly-books-soon-on-kindle-and-as-drm-free-digital-bundle.html"]without any DRM[/URL] at …

Maybe the third time’s the charm for Napster. The peer-to-peer pioneer has again emerged, and this time looks to have its sights set on Apple. The company on Tuesday launched a new Web site and music store, claiming to offer six million titles in unprotected MP3 format, as many songs as Apple’s popular iTunes store but without the DRM restrictions. Separate attempts by Napster in 2007 to partner with [URL=http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20070114-8610.html] AOL[/URL] and [URL=http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20070420-sound-familiar-circuit-city-and-napster-partner-on-music-service.html]Circuit City[/URL] fizzled. [URL= http://home.napster.com/#ns/home/index.html?genre_id=0]Napster’s new site[/URL] looks remarkably like the iTunes store. But upon closer inspection, the service lacks Apple’s slick and sturdy interface, and many of …

Who could forget [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon_Lech_Johansen"]DVD Jon[/URL], the Linux guru who was co-author of DeCSS? This Linux application 'unlocked' DVDs with content otherwise protected by Content Scrambling System (CSS) encryption and landed DVD Jon in front of a judge. Which did not stop him from continuing his quest to free audiovisual content from the chains of whatever encryption is being used to tie it to the original format. Perhaps most notoriously with his uncanny ability to quickly break new DRM systems such as the Fairplay wrapper for iTunes music for example. DVD Jon has now moved on from his Linux PC and …

Yes, in a bizarre twist and turn of fate, the original bad boy of illegal MP3 downloads which then went legit and hooked subscribers into music with Microsoft's digital rights management system has changed tack and announced it is to sell MP3 format tunes. So, OK, maybe not a real return to its roots as you will notice that I said sell, rather give away in a free file-sharing spree. Still, as a major online music retailer these days the fact that Napster is dumping DRM has to be good news for the consumer. DRM, for those who may not …

It seems like Apple is nearing a day we'd never think would come. [URL="http://uk.reuters.com/article/domesticNews/idUKN0137689420070402"]This time it seems official.[/URL] According to the reports, Apple and EMI have formed a deal that would not only allow Apple to sell EMI's music on their store (quite possibly The Beatles), but "large portions of these would be without copy-protection". Well, if that doesn't surprise me... The very company that Apple was fighting a few months ago could very well become one of the first companies to try out a DRM-free system on the iTunes store. It would be surprising enough if Apple were simply …

Cory Doctorow, he of [URL="http://www.boingboing.net/"]Boing Boing[/URL] fame and one of the most well known proponents of the [URL="http://creativecommons.org/"]Creative Commons[/URL] scheme, has rather surprisingly attacked Steve Jobs and Apple over DRM. Whoa, hold on a minute there, surprising that someone who speaks out in favor of Creative Commons should be arguing against DRM, predictable surely? Well, yes, apart from the fact that Doctorow is something of a self-confessed Apple fan boy. How much of one? Does having a tattoo of a Mac answer your question? Anyway, according to a piece in [URL="http://www.salon.com/tech/feature/2007/02/23/itunes/index.html?source=rss"]Salon[/URL] Doctorow has had enough and claims that he doubts …

Microsoft Vista has, in the few days that it has been on general release, managed to avoid the embarrassment of anyone poking major holes in its security from the perspective of protection of consumer PC integrity at least. However, everything is not so sweet when it comes to those media companies looking for Vista, and in particular the Protected Media Path (PMP) it uses to ensure that protected content cannot be played back on hardware not certified so to do. The problem being that security researcher Alex Ionescu, while on a workaround for the PatchGuard 64-bit driver signing in Vista, …

Creative Technology, the makers of the Soundblaster cards, and more recently, the Zen Neon portable music players, confirmed this week that 4,000 of it's shipped Neon music players shipped with the Wullik.b worm that affects Windows computers. Wullik.b came to the world in 2003 and it attacks all flavors of Windows (except 3.1). It is a worm that copies itself to random locations, and can spread to floppy disks and shared network drives. It was written in Visual Basic. The worm uses the Outlook address book to send itself to others. Creative posted on their Japanese website the serial number …
