Stealing code from live preview

I started working on shopping site theme I want to sell it on theme forest but I wonder how will this happen if everyone can right click and select inspector then copy all html and css files?

Can we sell without giving the source code so easy? I m thinking about putting few pictures and video to prove everything is working fine

You can do that but you will almost entirely prevent any sales.

Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be definitively done with stock marketplaces to prevent files from being copied/shared at some point. If this is going to get to you then selling stock is going to drive you mad.

The best option is to focus on legit customers and keep updating regularly


right then I will focus on the php at least nobody can’t steal that even if someone copies the html and css they don’t win anything without the php code
