Not directly related to sound design, but I am sure this question will help a number of people out. I know that a few people on the board already do this, so rather than ask them directly, I thought it would be better to share the information here.
I know that many people have been working on Sound Libraries, which they intend to sell as a package. I myself have been working on a project this summer which is now complete.
But now I have gotten a little bit stumped. I am not sure how I am going to go about distributing the product. I have my own server space where I can store files, but if I share the link to the files after payment has been taken (I have a googlecheckout account set up and ready), I run the risk of that link being shared out and the library being pirated.
How can I get around this. Can anybody recommended any free/cheap online shop software for intangible (digital) products. Are there any websites already which will allow me to do this?
How about Sound Cloud downloads? Would it work to take payment through Paypal or Googlecheckout and advise clients to setup a Soundcloud account and then allow them access to download each track. Does this way not seem a little complicated?
