TradingView, the online charting tools developer and social trading platform, announced it is upgrading the protected source code for Pine charts with the option for authors to limit and manage the access to their indicators.
We remind you that the option for protected source code for Pine charts was launched in September and lets users share knowledge and protect intellectual property at the same time, without the source code being visible to others. The indicators are available to all TradingView users in the public Script Library.
The new feature lets commercial vendors or authors who want to protect their IP or share with only select people limit the access to the indicators they publish. With the protected access people can charge off-site for their indicators and give access only to paying customers.
The new option is available through “Invite-only script” in the drop-down menu and only people added to the list would be able to use the scripts. Access is managed through the Manage Access button, where authors can add/remove users, and manage access rights.
The invite-only indicators are visible in the Public Library in a new section, but cannot be added by people who do not have an explicit permission from the author. The source code, on the other hand, is visible only to its author.
