If you're that concerned, the tool for dealing with this is not an
obfuscator but a patent office. People who break your license agreement
- you got a good lawyer to right one for you, yes? - will not be stopped
by an obfuscator, so it looks very much like you're trying to use a
technological solution to a legal problem.

A problem which, I must add, you haven't ascertained if it actually exists.
