Excel Software has announced PluginProtect Photoshop 1.0 for Photoshop Plugin developers on Mac and Windows. It consists of source code and instructions to embed the QuickLicense runtime in a Photoshop plugin.  

All protection, activation and licensing capabilities in the QuickLicense system are available to the plugin. Developers can protect plugins from piracy and increase revenue by supporting a wide range of license types, activation processes and advanced licensing features, according to the folks at Excel.

PluginProtect Photoshop is used with QLRT Xcode on Mac OS X or QuickLicense on Windows. The developer configures all aspects of the software license with QuickLicense and builds a tiny encrypted Ticket file. That Ticket file is bound to the plugin with a function call.  

PluginProtect Photoshop is free for registered owners of QuickLicense 6. It includes royalty-free runtime distribution rights for any number of protected plugins or licenses.  The package includes a PDF user guide, source code and demonstration video. For more info go to www.excelsoftware.com .
