Actually no - some users are posting
concerns here about your licensing. The vast majority who see this as a problem aren't going to bother registering to say so, they'll just wander on and find a more responsive vendor (the number of views this thread is getting may provide a hint).
Want an example? Spiderweb software used a similar system for their downloads (the CD-ROM versions of their software were DRM free) and as Jeff Vogel has stated
, dropping it ("We stuck by this system for fifteen years. Might as well have just made a big pile of money and set it on fire. At least we would have gotten the warmth."
) and going DRM-free resulted in the highest sales they've ever had.

And what would you define as "bulk"? I could stretch to getting 3 or 4 licenses if that resulted in a DRM-free version using that system. However I'm not paying any price for software I can't rely on to work in future - and that means no online or offline activation.
