Hey,

just a question, is it possible to 'copyright' (don't know the correct word exactly) a Plugin, basically so no other server could use it (if they do, they can be sewed) etc?
If so, how could this be?

You couldn't trademark a plugin, that is used to protect phrases or graphics. To copyright it, you would license it, probably All Rights Reserved. If you don't want any other servers to use it, don't let them access it, not sure what's wrong with that.

He's making reference to if the files were stolen.

It's possible, but if they were stolen - it'd cost far too much to sue that it wouldn't be worth it.

Thank you very much, really it helped.
Would you happen to know any alternatives if they were stolen? Anything that could be done? :(

Include malicious code and on enable check if the server up is different than yours. Then if someone is stupid enough to steal your plugin, they're probably also too stupid to decompile and check it or recompile.

That's their problem. If they don't like it they can move on, and this site is for buying and selling digital goods, they don't really have a place here. This isn't really the spot to ask either, next time post on my profile or in a pm ;p
