what about creating a CD key system just like in games? your buying a theme and then when you install the theme on wordpress you get to unlock the theme with the given CD key.

What do you think?
Im talking on the WP theme.

Yep. I thought about a system like this one but you can easily delete the necessary php files.

Well same as for games, it’ll get cracked :)

People buy and will continue to buy themes because of the support, no need to worry.

Well its not the same, not every one can crack a game it takes a lot of skills. I dont think there will be a scene group that will waste time to crack themes.

If you think its the right thing to do – go on. But don’t wonder if nobody buys your themes ;)

Let me tell you something, it’s not about YOU , it’s about the USERS /BUYERS. That’s one of the most important rules of business. Don’t make them do stuff they don’t want to. At the end you’ll lose more then you gain.
