FYI... they aren't, and plenty of apps that require authorization handle it much more transparently than Reason.
A whole application which you need to register yet can demo is quite different than an extension which you can demo. Especially if said extensions aren't created by the main company, but only provided so to speak.

Thing is; more transparency usually also brings in more options to by-pass any restrictions. Think about applications which provide a 30day trial. If they use the systems clock then people will simply turn that back, if they write a small key to keep track of time its bound to be found and abused too.

That is the main caveat IMO with most programs which provide a timed demo period.
With kind regards,
