I just spent some time to experiment Ovi Store and I'm quite disappointed.
I bought 3 applications:
- FSecure Mobile Security (PROTECTED with DRM FL)
- Advanced Device Locks (NOT protected with DRM FL)
- WaveSecure Lite (NOT protected with DRM FL)
I've saved all the 3 installation package on the PC and I've been able to install the application on all mine devices. But I paid each software only for 1 device!
Now I could install these applications on every device I like and I could also send these to my friends for FREE...
As a developer, the absence of every kind of license management is simply a nonsense for me.
How can we developer protect our software and avoid the FREE spreading of the software?
Moreover, these installation package don't need to be cracked or certified with DevCert.
Anyone can install them and use the FULL application without paying nothing!
Probably soon, we will see all the Ovi Store applications available for free on some warez website...
I'd like to know opinions from other developers and from Ovi Store Team also.
