Hi,

If I develop a product using PHP do I have to give it to the customer as Open source ?
Is there any option to deploy like .Jar files, compiled format ?
If so then can my application be protected with the copyright laws ?

In the USA you can register your copyright, independently of any issues associated with compiled software.  You might also want to learn about http://www.ioncube.com/
