    I was wondering about how I would put copyright on my bukkit plugin? Could I use GPL but how would I state its under copyright with the GPL liscence in the code? And how would i obfuscate the code if I have to?

    dan14941 You automatically are granted copyright to the code your have written. If you want to license it as GPL, you should include a LICENSE file with the GPL inside your plugin. There are programs that can obfuscate your code for you, simply search for one. Although I'm not sure why you'd want to, especially for a GPL plugin.

    AdamQpzm well i want to give my plugin to a server but i dont want then to redistribute it or use it if i say, what license would i use? And are there any tutorials on how to licence a bukkit plugin with that licence?

    dan14941 Then just include a license that states that distribution without your consent is not allowed - look into all rights reserved type stuff
