    How can you protect your source code:<o:p></o:p>

    1) From being copied unauthorizedly for a web master<o:p></o:p>

    2) For a person to whom you might have sold usage license only and is installed on his sever?<o:p></o:p>

    3) From inappropriate usage from one of your own developers<o:p></o:p>

    4) From anyone who s not intended to see it

    <o:p>5) After deployment</o:p>

    You can used Published Version of the application which will compile your code into DLL and you dont have to give your Code.

    I hope that helps.

    Hello:)

    First thanks for all the men above me's nice ideas, and here's my suggestion——

    Compile your code first and if necessary, you can try to have  a signed contract. I think this will help to protect your codes.

    Thx

    Sorry for asking so silly question but maybe you can describe the way of doing this and protecting your code. Maybe a small sample would be helpful for non expert people


    Just to let you know: LINK BELOW IS OUTDATED AND NO LONGER SUPPORTED. Either way, I'll check it out
