I've got some AE templates on AS, which I like, because they're "compiled" into .mogrt format.  On the other sites, you actually sell an AE file, right?  What's to stop anyone from stealing some of the underlying expression code or anything else?

Same as what's stopping people from stealing your photos, or anything else on the internet. Nothing.

.mogrt files are very limited, and useful for simpler stuff like titles.

For the advanced AE projects, yes, you get a project file, or sometimes even a plug-in that you can install.

Many of the top selling items are floating around on pirate sites, and yet they still sell for $15k per month. :)

Nothing, and people do.

Well, I mean an image is easily discernible as stolen.  Work in a template not so much so.  Was just wondering if that was a concern of anyone.

It's obviously a concern, but I guess it's just seen as 'par for the course'... an inconvenient, but acceptable risk of doing business when it comes to AE templates.

You won't be able to stop everybody, but you can stop the vast majority of average user thieves by confusing them. Turn your layers into adjustment layers, lock them and use the shy button. Then pre-comp them and use a script to hide your expressions somewhere else in the settings.  ::)
