I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Everything is possible to steal. It is just a question of effort/money. You may reduce the probability of such event in several different ways:

- deliver internet applications running on your servers
- use various security dongles, encryption, and code obfuscators
- calculate the code stealing possibility into the product price
- offer the source code purchase as an option for a surcharge
- develop/deliver new versions regularly so the stolen version becomes obsolete very early
