That's awfull !!!

How do you prove in court that this is your software and that it is
your right to decide how other people use it?
Well really how do you prove it is your work(and control right) and nobody else?

What is awfull is that I want to make my software not controlled
(no one has the right to say how other people use it) - i simply do
not put any notes about the author, make it anonymous work.
Now it seems to be impossible to make software not copyrightable
because someone else can write his name and claim it was he
who wrote the software.
