Surely you jest.  You certainly cannot keep others from trying by
protecting one copy of a program after it's been propagated all over the
Internet.  Besides, the methods have been described in detail, making it
easy to reproduce even if the code is not available.  The ONLY thing that
will discourage copy-cats is severe punishment for the author.

Cheers,
Doug
