I have a design that uses a PIC16F874.
Can I rely on the code protection offered by microchip to protect my code?
The reason I ask is because I have a company interest in purchased programmed PICs with my code.
Can I be ripped off by using code protection?

Does anyone have bad / good experience or advice for me.
Thanks.

Take a look at the smart cards used in sat tv. They have all kinds of protection and are still h@cked using the reset glitch method. It all depends on how bad someone wants to get access to the code and what kind of resources they have.

There are companies who cr@ck pics. There is reason to worry, escpecially when you work in a business affiliated with cr@cking, such as the TV business for example.
