I just realized that UXP plugins are decrypted and installed as plain text on the user’s computer. Seeing the ccx installer file encyrpted was one of my initial motivations to rewrite my old border scripts for the UXP framework. I’ve poured months, literally thousands of hours into developing a feature-rich plugin and now find that all of my code is just sitting there for anyone that buys the plugin to see.
I know that it’s not really possible to completely protect scripting languages from being viewed with encryption alone, but really, is it necessary to simply leave this fully visible to anyone that wants to take or look, or even steal? Are there any plans to protect the intellectual property of the hordes of developers pouring their hearts and souls into these plugins?
