Everyone that uses Flash and specially for distributed applications or games knows that their files can be torn apart, rebranded and redistributed on other machines or domains. This is a big problem for anyone that worked hard to make something unique and even profit from their expertise.

There is no way to 100% protect SWF files, however there are other companies that try to do the opposite by encrypting and obfuscating your compiles SWF’s so that the resulting decompiled files are virtually unusable, some might even crash the decompiler software if not run by a second software that successfully decrypts it.

I’ll be reviewing the Professional edition of Kindisoft SecureSWF because it is the only one that inspired some level of protection for me.
