Default Protecting Flash source

Is protecting your Flash source code a losing battle, or what do people use? I am looking at Flashpack, but don't know if it actually protects code from decompiling. What else have people used effectively to protect their code?

Old answer to an old question, yes most likely, it's a losing battle...
You can somewhat obfuscate your code, but that's about it...

Yeah... You could do something about it but somebody is going to come up with a way to decompile the file sooner or later...

1.) Just curious how does ASO compare to SWF Encrypt, is one better then the other?

2.) Also are there decompilers that currently crack SWF Encrypt or ASO ?

3.) Is the FREE lite version of ASO enough to secure ?

4.) Does either cause a slow down in SWF performace after obfuscating?

I know its a losing battle, just curious.

PS: Please dont do the joke again atomic ;-) (But if you have a method, please share ;-)

As I stated earlier, I'm all for decompilers and basically against any obfuscating software... Just tested ASO against my present version of Sothink(3.7) to see the outcome... Code is in fact obfuscated and doesn't make real sense, but the structure is still there, and some bright kids could probably make sense out of it...
Mind you if they're that bright, they don't really need a decompiler...

Still in the end, pictures, sounds, etc. are still available...

Yeah I know, so much for my questions by the way ;-) I know there is not much in the way of protection, and when someone does come up with some half baked solution they test it and run ;-).

Are you then saying your not that bright?

Kidding!!!!!!!!!

PS: Funny one in the other thread atomic
