Weaknes of this aproach doesn't lie in hashing function, so whether md5,
sha-1 or sha-256 will be used it makes no difference

From a security perspective I would use SHA-256 since both, SHA-1 and MD5
should not be considered "secure" these days. In this case, where you are
just generating a license file, computing time should not be an issue...

just my 0.02
