    Default How to restrict a single user to download my software multiple times?

    Hi all,
    From my webpage, people can download a software by clicking "download". Some people is downloading my software over and over.
    What would be the easiest/ convenient way to restrict a single user to download my software multiple times?

    Please help me.

    Thanks in advance.

    Well basically you need to identify the user.

    My modest proposal is that something akin to a MAC address be implemented. And, for ease and convenience, I would suggest the requisite surgery be performed soon after birth.

    I recognise that there will be inevitable objections to this on the grounds that such addresses can be easily spoofed. But consider that it would require only minor amendments to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act to have the hardware attached to something critical to the user's wetware system. This would ensure that no terrist/pirate type could tamper with the device and obtain illegal access to your download.

    Such a system is quite feasible given the fact the US is a democracy: and one where the votes necessary for legislative change can be bought at quite reasonable rates. Legislators will also be attracted by the opportunity afforded by this proposal to attach wetware "reset" functionality as a way of dealing with the uppity 99%. As for the actual implementation, I note that they already have physicians and psychologists active in other security protection efforts. These medical personnel if not actually approved of by their civilian colleagues, are nonetheless tacitly accepted, and will happily wield a scalpel to ensure that we all get to enjoy a better regulated future.

    Both my BS and sarcasm meters went off the scale with that one, are now completely borked, and will likely have to be sent in for repairs. Thanks a lot.
