license registration

License registration tools and services provide the means for presenting a software developer's software licenses (also known as an End-User License Agreement, or EULA) to an end user as well as facilitating the transfer of required registration information and consent to the license. Successfully registering a software application often activates the software for legal use by the end user or enterprise.

License registration is often used in conjunction with license key generation and license management tools to prevent the developer's software from being copied, shared or otherwise illegally used (aka pirated) by non-licensed users.
