Hi there,

Today my friend told me how to rip swf files out of pages, then edit them!!!

It goes like this...

1) You go to the page with the swf file in the webpage.
2) Right click anywhere, then click view source.
3) Click ctrl f.
4) search .swf.
5) It should search all the swf files in the page.
6) It should come up with the /blahhaha.swf.
7) Put that /something.swf at the end of the .com etc domain.
8) Then thats where the sourch .swf file is.
9) Make a htnl page and put a hyperlink to that page.
10) Save your page, load it up and right click on the link, save target as.
11) Then the .swf file goes on your pc!!!
12) Go to macromedia flash, then click import then import the .swf file.
13) You can edit it as you please!!!

But my questions are...

Is this legal?
I have flash .swf files on the internet that are my own. Is there anyway to put a copywrite on it to prevent people ripping my .swf files out of my website pages?

You can certainly copyright your own material, and you can put simple javascript on the page to prevent people from right clicking on it. But the copyright basically only allows you to sue someone if they steal it, or have them prosecuted. In most cases the .swf file is saved in the temp. internet files and easily copied from there to another folder. To prevent that you have to put in script that downloads it to a temporary folder that is deleted when the page is closed or after the file is closed.

Also, i tried this ripping method and with one cartoon, it will play the swf file on my pc, but when i try to import it in to flash it says it cant because it is copywrited.

How do you do this?

How do you copywrite files?

Does it cost?

Well you cant stop people from ripping your swf. But you can make it so if they take your swf and try but it flash it ask for a password. To do this go to:

File>Publish Settings>Flash>Tick Protect From Import>Enter Passwor In Box. Then your done!
