Its solutions help in implementation and imposition of complex licensing scenarios including floating licenses, demo-to-full version conversion, online and offline enforcement, and handling of virtualization. Currently, software license management solutions lay heavy emphasis on management of software rights of genuine customers, instead of claiming to dissuade piracy. License management systems include back office, server, and client-side components.
