Great idea though!
Great if no bugs, except for the people without internet connections while working on DAW.
I disable mine while recording, e.g., and some folks just don’t like being connected to the internet with their DAW at all.
Hasn’t iLok been cracked? That’s one reason why they might not be so conservative with it.
cloud auth works great for Native Instruments, one of the larger devs out there.
Their plugins also get cracked almost the day they come out.
