I’m all new to the open source free software thing, but any way I’m going into it pretty well (I guess!!).
Now the thing is: in the way to distribute my program, I’ll have to distribute my source code, so it will be a (.gz) with an installer for sure, or maybe a (.deb).
My questions are:
(I know this is a silly one, but I’m new here) How can I make sure that no one will take my source code and use it as theirs, I mean the program is free, but do I need some kind of proof that this thing was written by me?
What kind of an open source license should I put on the program? (considering that I’m using Debian, Ruby, Cron, Partimage, Qt4)
