    When a person views your page, they are 'downloading' it. There is not way of stopping this . You can fiddle about by serving it from a php script instead of directly to protect against hotlinking or certain user agents, but it won't deter anybody slightly determined.

    Well I found one product about flash encryption called amayeta http://www.amayeta.com/
    SWF Encrypt™ 5.0 is the only way to Encrypt and Protect your Adobe Flash® SWF Files from ActionScript Decompilers and SWF Hackers...

    I didn't try it but will..

    It doesn't stop anybody from downloading your file. It attempts to block decompilation, and obfuscates the internal code so that if the swf is decompiled it will be difficult to alter code and to recompile to a new file.

    I've used SWF Encrypt in the past to protect Flash content.

    A handy trick is this: build your application from a range of SWF files that are called into a main SWF file. Then, insert some simple actionscript so the files won't run unless they are hosted by the appropriate parent. That way, quite a few SWF files must be captured and run appropriately for the user to see anything.

    This is obviously not a foolproof technique, but it should stop all but the determined hacker. For a little while anyway...
