otherwise sounds like you simply want the ordinary "all rights   
reserved" proprietary license.                                   
But ya, if you don't give it to anyone, then it dies with you.   
I haven't heard of anyone suing over proprietary code and        
winning. SCO tried to sue Linux but they lost miserably.

Also, get over yourself, if market doesn't pay you for it, then  
it isn't worth it.
