 Can copyright be applied python scripts?
#1
Can copyright be applied to python scripts?
Quote
#2
the real question is how you will enforce it and is it worth the efforts?
i.e. it's up to you under what license terms you will distribute your work (i.e. that's legal matter)

You can put any license terms you want on your scripts. Like buran said, the trouble of enforcing it is usually not worth it. Anything can be reversed engineered. Even Windows exe files can be tapped into. But python's are much easier to break into as it was never intended to be closed software.

You can work with importlib.ressources, which is not so painful.

The variable datas must be edited to copy non-python files into the executable file.
Running the creation of exe-file:
