Version 2.0686 has customizable context menu built in. You can add 13 entries, link those to existing functions in the tour (to open panos etc), or link the entries to webpages or simply place your copyright and contact info. In the context menu there are hard-coded "About Flash Panorama Player" and "About Flashificator" These entries can NOT be removed.
In one of the next updates, it will be made so that if the context menu is removed, the whole project will not be functional. People who want to get rid of the "About Flashificator", can purchase a special version of the context menu without it, with their own copyright/contact info hard-coded. If someone tries to remove that information, the project will not work. This will make copyright theft quite a bit harder.
Price for the non-removable context menu license will be €150.
Benefits of this are numerous. You sell a tour to a client, the client decides it's a good idea to sell DVD's with the tour to his clients, he can copy the project and burn DVD's and sell those... completely ignoring your copyright, especially if he first removes all trace of your copyright information in the pano. Be that through context menu and/or info-screeen or other on-screen copyright hotspot placement.
With the context menu being non-removable and not possible to change the hardcoded copyright info that comes with the special license, the client can not claim he "didn't know".
Some of you good folks work in areas that contain competitors, and you might not want them to know what software you are using to create your tours. In that case it would be a good choice to buy a context menu license where the "About Flashificator" info is not present. There is however still the "About Flash Panorama Player" remaining... I will try to work out a deal with Denis, so that the link to FPP can also be removed, obviously it will be up to him to decide if that should be allowed or not, and at what price it will come.
Please feel free to air your thoughts on this upcoming feature. Pro's and Con's are welcome in the debate.
