The other posting do have valid points. 1) It will be easy to defeat protection in interperted languages. 2) Unless you spend a lot of time on the problem, it's not worth it.

If you really do need serious copy protection for your killer app, you should just purchase a pre-built solution from a vendor. You can find hardware key solutions from Aladdin and Rainbow Technology.

One final thought. All of these copy protection methods only attempt to make the cost of stealing the software much higher. There is no way to achieve perfect protection on the PC.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
