    SDZ to check hardware id...

    I was just thinking if .sdz packages are capable of checking hardware id of the system for a purpose of an install only on one computer just like SD software itself.
    For example, I want to create a plugin which can be installed as a package add-on to SD software. How would I manage to do that. Would I have to run a separate installer and then link them with .sdz package (just like mappoint).

    Or how would licensing work for custom skins/graphics for SD?
    Who will have the rights for it and will someone be able to sell skins?

    At this point all developed skins and DigitalMods are open source. We have plans to offer a commercial developer edition that will encrypt the source and may at some point offer a complete e-commerce solution, but not for a while yet. If you want to sell some add-on now, you will largely have to sell and protect it somehow yourself, you can use COM now, which will let you get around the open source issue for DigitalMods. There won't be any hardware id checking or anything else that will use the StreetDeck protection mechanisms exposed in the SDK.

    So G_O_C, if someone creates some skins and decides to sell it online, they can do that, right? As long as they dont use any logos from car companies for example...?

    We really have no right to tell you what you can and can't sell so yes, your free to sell whatever you've made as long as you claim it as your own don't claim we approve of it. That doesn't mean we disapprove of it, it just means we don't want to be responsible for it or any problems it may or may not cause.

    I don't care if you bundle car company logos, its probably illegal and car companies might sue you, but we probably won't.

    The only exception to this is if you bundle any of the default skin images with your skin. You can't sell the default skin images that are part of StreetDeck.

    You can redistribute the default skin files freely, but only for use in other StreetDeck systems.
