NOTE: I MAY BE WRONG HERE. I AM SIMPLY RECALLING.

I'm fairly sure someone who knew what they were doing could steal your graphics/sound pretty easily. Your code would also be easily stolen but it would be almost impossible to edit if you used the minify option.

Your project logic is well-protected using Google Closure Compiler, so it should be extremely difficult to reverse engineer a .capx from something on the web.

However, as with any game technology at all, it is possible to extract artwork, audio and other resources. It is a little easier with HTML5, but as ever copyright law makes it illegal to use other people's work by default in most countries.Ashley2012-10-21 22:22:57

Yes that's true,So even if they ripped everything they cannot use it because it's still the original owner or artists copyrighted material.
