    I see that nice-looking html landing page being dup'ed all the time; and in fact, its so easy to rip them and dup them completely.
    Is there a way to prevent people from duping your brand new, professional designed html landing pages etc.? Such as hiding source-code etc.?

    It is possible that I know for sure, but for that you'll need additional hosting or cdn and some good programming skills.

    if you have many CSS files, import CSS files through CSS instead of importing them through your HTML page, and just make the import hard to find when looking through the original css, thats one method of protection that i have seen used

    You can make it difficult to copy, but in the end, if someone is determined they'll manage to do it.

    You can obfuscate and the compress your javascript, html, and css code. There's nothing that can 100% protect you, but you can make it take hours to decode your pages and also require a high degree of technical skill to duplicate.

    You can also setup trap links that if request cause the IP to be ban by the server.

    If you would like my assistance I might be willing to help you for a fee as it's time consuming to properly protect a site.

    One of the funniest things I ever saw that actually worked really well was to hit enter 1-200 times at the top of the file. People scroll down a while and wonder why there is no code. Another is to disable rightclick.

    Really though any of these sites/landing pages are really easy to duplicate. A good designer can just be shown the page and replicate it in no time so you are really just wasting your time.

    The thing is, if the designer is truly skilled, he/she probably wont bother copying and go with his/her own style - believing he/she can probably do better. and in such case, if they are really that skilled, sure, go ahead and dup.

    However, if lazy asses and people who are just looking for scam off others, I will do my best to prevent them copying. Just my 2 cents.
