Default Clients Copy?

If there is JAVA, or a database, or PHP, then of course what is available to a browser is insufficient to copy it. Even a FrontPage web site that uses FP navigation or themes may be difficult to reproduce without access to the web hosting company userid and password.

I have a client web site and a web site purely my own that are is just HTML and CSS with images, and those could be copied by anyone who wanted to do so. I have a legacy FrontPage web site which would be more difficult to copy. I have another legacy HTML 4.01 web site which uses PHP and MySQL, and that would be quite a bit more difficult to copy. The MySQL only records data and doesn't display it, though.

The real issues are not technical, they are legal and business relationship issues, which are often ignored or glosssed over by individual developers and inexperienced clients.
