Software Lincensing App Updated To Support Internet Rentals
PACE Anti-Piracy has released an update to InterLok, their software licensing engine. The update brings the app to version 1.2 and includes many new features. According to PACE:

InterLok for Macintosh 1.2 better supports software rentals, a distribution mechanism that allows software developers to broaden customer options for acquiring their products. Using InterLok, software developers can provide their customers with time-limited product licenses and "pay as you use" rental arrangements, or securely allow customers to evaluate software before purchasing it. The new version of InterLok released today also offers a wider range of challenge/response customization options for developers and publishers using InterLok for the distribution of their software products.

InterLok is a fifth-generation tool set for protecting, distributing and selling software electronically and via traditional models such as the telephone and facsimile. InterLok Pro for Macintosh includes all of the features of InterLok for Macintosh, plus additional distribution, security and flexibility options. With the release of InterLok for Macintosh 1.2, PACE Anti-Piracy adds specific product capabilities for the software rental marketplace, a fast-growing Internet commerce arena.

In addition to its support of software rentals, the new version of InterLok for Macintosh includes the following new features:

  • Key Diskettes can now be generated on Apple's G3 systems.
  • Better multi-platform support, enabling unlocking for both Macintosh and Windows clients.
  • Authorization can now be installed to drives on any SCSI bus, including Ultrawide.
  • Allows specification of an expiration date for responses to challenges.
  • Previous versions only allowed date specification for serial numbers.
  • New PACE Interface API calls allow implementation of a custom challenge/response or serial number authorization.

The new version is a free update to registered owners. Full pricing starts at US499 per annual license. You can download demos at the company's web site.
