Not necessarily.

If the whole thing is designed the right way. 
A copy protection I like for example are dongles. Ok, they are not 
applicable to PHP and aren't 100% secure either [don't want to start a 
discussion about this now]. But this system makes no problems for the 
people that have the dongle.

That was why first came up with this question. As a PHP beginner I wanted 
to know if there are elegant ways to make a acceptable copy protection.

There seem to be only 3 possibilities:
- zend encoder
- a code obfuscator like POBS
- encrypting the source code and then decrypting it in realtime

I do not expect any more replies ;)
