The 'phoning home' shouldn't be a problem, using a simple postNetText commands, which checks in with a script on your server. Your movie would send the user's details (eg, username & password). The script would query your (server side) database, and return an 'ok' or 'expired' result. It could even return the days remaining until expiry.
There are more complex things you could do to make it more secure, but hopefully this points you in the right direction. (it's how I have done it in the past, anyway!)
Thanks for your reply. I'm pretty good with Lingo, and so-so with server scripting and stuff. Is it possible that you can give me a template of a script like you describe and/or an example of the server side database (are you talking about a SQL DB or something similar?)
The web/server type of stuff is where I need help. If I can see actual examples of the components I'm usually able to figure out how to modify them for me but I'm not as versed to just code them out of my head.
Thanks for any help you can provide :)
