Python - Is my game's .py code an open book?

Hi
I'm so used to the .class binary encoding for the Java interpreter, which is a little hard to inspect and decipher.
I wonder, is the user that runs my .py from online completely able to inspect and steal my code?
A binary .class is a little harder to inspect and steal. If I inspect a .py inside a browser view source, it seems to be all the code?

Can I make a get-around of sorts, but the .py code itself is unobtainable? Say I'd like to give a person my class's functionality, without them actually having the code?
Thanks

.pyc files are to Python what .class files are to Java.

How exactly are you going to run Python in your browser though?

Sorry
I thought Python was as runnable as html now, no? Only a ,pyc is. If I let a user of my system have access to my .py file, they can steal my code in text.
Is using pyc the way to go? I basically provide an interface


Basically, my RTS players will have my client network engine class running. I just don't want my code steal-able at a glance.
thanks
