The most you can do is make it inconvenient enough to "keep honest people honest".

Your scheme might accomplish this. Your employer's legal department might be able to craft a suitable license agreement to help with this.

If the legal department's work is done, and the client has signed the contract, there is no need to "make it inconvenient".

      No difference, except that the legal department's door has "lawyer" written on it. Never work without a contract, never sell without a contract.

        Great.

        And a year later, when renewal time comes around and the company says they don't need to renew because they've developed their own in-house replacement, your piece of paper is worth about as much as the T&Cs on the world+dog's website.

        Can you prove that they stole your code? Can you afford the legal process required to do so?
