You're the chess grandmaster thinking nine moves ahead. I'm just trying to figure out how the pieces move. Thanks for trying to figure out what that stupid paragraph was supposed to mean. All I was really trying to say was that we might use LiveCode to gather useful code from websites we like -- then reuse that code in our own projects. What I should have said instead was, "If Richard is talking about web programming, listen up."

I'm not sure I understand.  Is your concern that JavaScript can't be protected?

If so, yes, that's true.  For all sites.  Even Google's, where it hasn't stopped them from investing a fair bit of cash.

I don't think the Web is going away anytime soon....
