how to protect footer copyright from removal?
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!
