As the Codewitch says, anything can be reverse-engineered or decompiled with sufficient effort.

Unless your code is of interest to the NSA or some such, I doubt that anyone will bother. It's typically too much effort for too little result.

Most commercial companies would rather invest their efforts in producing something similar than reverse-engineering. The legal risks are much smaller.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
