licence-wise you could use some properitary
free(as in beer)-ware licence which is found in many freely donwloadable
(closed source) software.
or no licence at all, which means "all rights reserved".
(or "just ask me") technically it is almost impossible
to prevent people from building upon your work,
though you could try some kind of code-obfuscation, like
writing a little perl script which places all objects at
random positions and gives cryptic names to subpatches
and abstractions.

imho this would not be worth the effort, and a horrible
idea to make deliberatly unreadable pd-patches...

bis denn!
