I'm developing several bots for Bitcoin-related profit-making. My best ideas work on fee-free GLBSE (since fees are maker/taker), but they'll only work if nobody else does them. After I put lots of work into programming, though, I always want to share it with someone, if not everyone. So what do I do with my great ideas which will only make money if only I use them?

I recommend asking me for a signature from my GPG key before doing a trade. I will NEVER deny such a request.
Once a transaction has 6 confirmations, it is extremely unlikely that an attacker without at least 50% of the network's computation power would be able to reverse it.

You can sell the software once you're done using it, the GPL is not incompatible with selling free software. Or you could do some kind of auction/fundraiser to release the source code to the public (e.g. "if people donate BTCx I will release the source code") and either sell binaries (because people are lazy/don't know how to compile from source) or release them for free as well.

Don't use BIPS!
