  1. Is there a way to prevent my premium plugin leak?

    No. There is no way to completely prevent leaking.

  4. Yes, really. You can pirate movies, games, e-books, or any other kind of software. Why would Minecraft plugins be any different?

    Yea, if a billion dollar company like Microsoft can't stop people pirating their IP then what makes you think you can? Though granted, a plugin by some random Joe on Spigot is going to get astronomically less people trying to break protections than M$ products lol But all it takes is one slightly determined person and your shit is cracked.

    You're better off just open sourcing it. Honest people will still buy your plugin, and dishonest ones wouldn't have bought it anyway and your product can get upgrades and bugfixes from altruistic public programmers.

  6. Just let it happen. The best way to deal with things we can't prevent is to just let it happen.Don't be greedy. And even if you take down a crack, another one will pop up
