Why not ask the source of the code for the text? If you can't get it, then figure that it's been obfuscated for a reason and perhaps move on to a more reasonable and legal project.
i was hoping for some help, i have got the code. i wanted to learn how to decode it. nothing illegal in that.
looks like u need to look up what fact is and what fiction is. what a waste of time you are!
Eric S. Freibrun, Esq. (a friend of my brother who is also an intellectual property attorney) entitled Intellectual Property Rights in Software: What They Are and How the Law Protects Them :
Happy to waste your time if it means you've learned a little something.Copyrights
While a patent can protect the novel ideas embodied in a software program, a copyright cannot. Copyright protection extends to the particular form in which an idea is expressed. In the case of software, copyright law would protect the source and object code, as well as certain unique original elements of the user interface.
As discussed in last month's issue, the owner of a copyrighted software program has certain exclusive rights (with some exceptions): the right to copy the software, create derivative or modified versions of it, and distribute copies to the public by license, sale or otherwise. Anyone exercising any of these exclusive rights without permission of the copyright owner is an infringer and subject to liability for damages or statutory fines.
As with patents, the exclusive rights afforded under copyright law are intended to reward the creative and inventive efforts of the "author" of the copyrighted work. The exclusive right to control duplication protects the owner of copyrighted software against the competition that would result from verbatim copying of the program's code. Copyright law also protects against indirect copying, such as unauthorized translation of the code into a different programming language.
Copyright protection arises automatically upon the creation of an original work of authorship. There is no need to "apply" for a copyright or register the copyrighted work in order for protection to exist. Generally, the duration of a copyright is the author's life plus fifty years. In the case of software created by an employee in the course of his or her employment, the resulting "work made for hire" would be protected by copyright law for seventy-five years from publication.
In contrast with patents, independent development of a copyrighted work is a defense to an allegation of copyright infringement. Imagine, though, how unlikely it would be for the same thousands of lines of code to be created independently by one not engaged in unauthorized copying. Unlike patents, copyright law affords no protection to the ideas underlying the program. Ideas and concepts are fair game for competitors to the extent they are not protected by patents or trade secrets.
This code is from a De-compiled swf file from JW Player. Its origin is an online sports streaming site that "UN-officially" broadcast English Premier League Games, Boxing PPV events etc etc, so i wouldnt be to concerned about posting they're code.
