It's not my favorite way to buy apps, but it's not necessarily a deal-breaker.

As for subscription-ware, I definitely try to avoid it.

I don't mind iLok License Manager authorization, if it uses the soft license (i.e., doesn't require the hardware iLok) and if the developer allows two simultaneious authorizations (i.e., laptop and desktop). PSP Audioware does this, for example. The hardware dongle is still an option for folks who work in several locations, so it's a win-win.

I completely understand those who object to authorization that requires an always-on internet connection and would rather register with a serial number and be done with it. That's my favorite too.
