Hi, I'm new to this Forum but have been reading MacRumors since I switch to Mac a year ago. I have a couple of questions I hope you can help me out with. 1: If you develop an application ie. VirtueDesktops, and you want to make some money out of it, and you are sure that there is no other application out there able to do the same. Is any way to protect it so other person/company won't make their own implementation for a period of time? 2: In the current seed of Leopard for developers is it possible to make use of core animation for your own applications or that will be available once Leopard becomes available? Thanks a lot for the responses.
