hi,

i got a little script that i purchased few years ago from someone that he worked on it, but he never released it,so i took over the project and did had someone to fix some errors,redirections,and other problems,added some stuff to the script.

now i am not a coder,so i am asking you guys here how to protect the "copyright " from being removed? this will be a free forum script to use,and all people can use it for free,all i am asking is to keep the copyright intact ,there.

one other option is ,for the copy right to be removed ,to have a option of a donation of 10$ made to us,then they can remove that copyright ,no problem,
and all the money received will go to add extra features to the script,i will not keep any money for me,is all about the project.

so can someone give me some advice what will be best for me to do?

thank you very much!

regards,

Where, and what, is the copyright? Is it just text in the HTML or code, or perhaps an image/background?

About all you can do is include it in the code in such a way that it gets copied when the block of code is copied, maybe the middle of the block and not the top. With javascript you have no protection of your code, you can obscure it but that just makes people think it's special and then they copy it and 'unobscure' it.

You also have no way to know that 40 other people haven't written similar code, so most people don't really worry about such things.

Encrypt a section of the code around your copyright to obscure it. There's plenty of encrypters out there. Here is one:http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex9/encrypter.htm
But anyone who wants to persist will still be able to remove it.

this is the code in footer:



<br />
<br />
<table width="100%" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="0">
<tr>
<td valign="top" class="tcat">Footer</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td valign="top" align="center" class="footer">&copy; Copyright
<a href="mysite.com">mysite.com</a> 2008-2012
<div align="left"><a href="http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=referer"><img
src="http://www.w3.org/Icons/valid-xhtml10-blue"
alt="Valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional" border="0" height="31" width="88" /></a>
<a href="http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/check/referer">
<img style="border:0;width:88px;height:31px"
src="http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/images/vcss-blue"
alt="Valid CSS!" border="0" />
</a>
</div>
</td>
</tr>
</table>
