That would be cheaper, without adding much risk.

See, most client-software is useless without the server, and you wouldn't be hurting much if someone is using two unregistered clients within his/her network. If someone can actually copy the server, then they can duplicate the entire thing on a different network.

If the authentication webservice to the client is blocked, put up a message to call "support".

The main question to answer would be this; do you expect that piracy is going to cost you MORE than the dongle costs? If the answer is "no", then having one on the server might be enough (at least, for the time being).

If you can, then scout some pirating-sites to see if your software is mentioned. If it is, then upload a big pile of nonsense-data that "claims" to be a pirated version of your software. And then delete Part11.rar Smile | :)
