Hi , I want to know if limiting an Indicator by checking license type illegal ?
because on indicators people can download it on demo accounts and see the signals and then manually trade on their real accounts.
for example I want to have a fully functional demo of my indicator only on EurUsd . and then people get and test it . if they liked it pay for it and use it on other pairs too.
but rules say :
Integrating and applying any third-party sales, accounting, license control and update management systems (including the ones using WebRequest features) in Products are prohibited.
so how should I prevent people from downloading indicator to demo and see the fully functioning signals and trade based on it on their other real accounts ?
Can I use this function as it is not a third party code ? MQLInfoInteger(MQL_LICENSE_TYPE);
They can only see the results from one symbol and one timeframe at a time without live updates to prices.
Anyone prepared to put up with such a terrible trading environment to save a few bucks will never purchase your product anyway.
So I wouldn't worry about this at all. Just focus on creating a quality indicator that users want and the sales will come.
