I have iLock (for regular VCC and some demos) and eLicenser (some VSTi, Cubase) and I haven't any issue with these kind of CP. So I don't see where the problem is.

Said that, CP on libraries sucks for me, and primarily for me and other devs I suppose, since it needs more work and re-work. So I would like to release new programs without it but we don't live in a perfect world...
For sure the ideal scenario is to have one unique kind of CP for all 3rd party but it seems that every ones choose individually.

Personally I have two possibility only:
1 - CP. Manual serial exchange like experimented two years ago.
2 - stop making libraries.

Don't tell me the fable about low price, demos and great customers support is the solution. All these things already exist from the beginning and the result it's on the warez sites.

I apologize if I seem a little ethically disappointed by this whole history... :|

I am really sorry to hear you are feeling so down about this Alex. You have many fans here who all love what you have done!

You have a massive body of work that has a lot of value, I am sure there is a solution for you to continue to get the money you deserve. All is not lost, try to keep positive!

Alex, I do understand your feelings, as I have had music of mine used for profit under someone else's name, and that is theft that is similar to the piracy we are talking about. And as I have already said, I don't like the idea of any CP, but I like that much better than you not making them anymore. I personally don't "do" iloks, so for my own selfish reasons, I hope that ilok is not your choice. If so, I support your decision but will still not buy into ilok.... but I digress. I do think that all of the devs need to do whatever they think they need to do to stay in business. A little CP, slightly higher prices, Henry's idea of customized libraries..... whatever.

I can understand your feelings, but (respectfully) I don't think the answer is in elaborate copy protection or higher prices, etc. I don't do iLok... however, a serial doesn't sound unreasonable.

Anyway, I hope you can see it from the end user's point of view. Believe it or not reasonable pricing, demo programs and the idea of being above board and supporting great devs like yourself DO factor into people's buying decisions - I'm personally an example of this. :D

I think it'a matter of respect to peoples, who make this gorgeous plugin and libraries for such a little cost. It's a shame to stealing it. If u doing this - u are loser. Even a student can spend 50euros or even 150, for things u like, which helps u make your music sound more "live" and breathin.) That's why i buyed nebula and planing to purchase some great libs, which i testing now)
Sorry for my bad english =))

Dunno =) If u plan to make money on your music and mixing-mastering - it's not a problem at all, i suppose. Same goes for Reaper. Which DAW (so flexible and user-friendly) costs 60 bucks? No one!) Which plugin can make closest than anything "analog sound" for 189EUR and so (mmm, OK, +400USD for libraries, which u can purchase one-by-one), depending on your taste and needs? Waves with his harsh, dirty squashed, muddy sound for 500+USD? Nope, thanks. No one, but Nebula =)

We must admit, what Nebula is unique product for REEEAAAALLLY fair price, which need our support to progress, make updates, make new great libraries and, so on, make our music-sound life much sweet and easier =) Even if i work on console and real analog hardware, i cannot live without nebula past two years, and i want to Nebula lives. That's why i've buyed it. Besides, it really has potential)

So Alex, i'm on my way to choose one of consoles (so difficult to decide =___=) and give you my money with pleasure =))))

P.S. And sorry for my poor english.)

The one used by Nebula itself and AITB programs.

I know it, i got 5 libraries from AITB but, why the rest of devs dont do the same or for example, why dont do like CDSoundmaster guys,with the acqua engine, libraries inside a vst plugin with that CP,its a lot of more work i know it but, much more difficult to crack it.
Henry for example, do this one for is orphanage but i guess that the rest of devs should do something like that,but i imagine that its not easy. :?
