I’ve searched threads related to this issue and found bobocel’s code

http://pastie.org/617744

But since it’s the first time i use it, i have a few questions. First of all, where you do you put the code? Do you insert it in the first frame of the timeline and write something like this?...

if(isStolen==false) { //the rest of your code }

Then, what domain names I’ll need to write? Before your item get’s uploaded on AD, you won’t know the exact domain (it might be ‘activeden’ or ‘s3.envato’ or another).

Thanks in advance.

Reviewers encrypt your files.
All you can do is embed the xml inside the file ,so it doesn’t load externally.

I also have thought of that solution but never tried it. Great that it’s done :) Encryption might not be enough :/

secureSWF (same one AD uses) has an option to restrict to a certain domain as well as obfuscate your SWF . but I have used Bobocel’s solution and it is quite nice.

Hey guys. This is something I wrote awhile ago. I really hope it helps you out! Quick Tip: Lock SWF to a specific Domain Name :)

I am sorry, but I don’t understand why you want to protect the preview? Anyone can purchase your item and get the full sources.

It’s not the people that actually purchase that these guys are afraid of are trying to prevent from doing their dirty deeds.. ;)

...and some of the files don’t even require to source code to be changed in order to work. like those banner rotators.

Depends, but true! :) If the file uses full XML , and it’s encrypted by the staff, then it’s useless, the XML string is scrambled :)

It seems it is impossible to fight theft. The only way is to keep the tracks of stolen items. You can place the “invisible” unique text within the preview (for example “My super project xyz”) and then use the google search request “My super project xyz” filetype:swf to get the list of all sites which are using your file.
