Tony, as people buy from people (who have done it before) my guess is your client who highlighted that someone had lifted your tool ended up buying from you anyway? Deciding not to share is an understandable, though extreme reaction, capable of doing yourself more damage as you opt out of the wider knowledge flows that drive your own innovation. Perhaps consider using the openness of the web to expose transgressors is a strategy (many seem reluctant to do this), combined with local tactics (such as staged charging for knowledge sharing - making sure they at least pay for what they steal and keeping premium content for verified clients) to manage short-term disruption? Finally, solace in the fact flattery is the best form of imitation, in the long run we're all dead anyway, and karma's gonna get us in the end...
