Obviously most coders are in the middle ground. They are not writing "the killer app of all time" but is of significant value. I don't know what people on here are charging but I can't add $2880 a year to my overhead for the zend encoder. Plus add $1875 per cpu for the zend accelerator for each project.
So you're bidding for a project and the guy asks, "Let me get this straight, you're charging me more then everyone else and I won't be able to edit the code?" I think you would simply pricing yourself out of the market. -----Original Message----- From: David Freeman [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]] Sent: May 9, 2002 5:24 PM To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Subject: RE: [PHP] Genus who came up with "Self Destruct Code" & "Copy Pro tection" > I was talking in general.

Seems like some people want it both ways - my code is different and unique and has commercial value in and of itself but I'm not prepared to spend real dollars to protect it, I want free code to do that. I suspect that many people in this situation have an overly high opinion of their code and, in reality, there are open source or free alternatives that do much the same (albeit elegant and easily customisable or whatever) and, as such, not worth spending the money on zend.
