Feel free to redirect me if there's a forum this would be better suited for, I'm still unfamiliar with the functions of the different forums.
I'm going to begin a project soon that requires a lot of user content to get off the ground. I feel like this is a very innovative idea that could easily be scooped up and hijacked by someone with a lot more capital than me. I intend to really throw myself into this and spend a lot of time and energy getting it working, but I'd like to take precautions to make sure that my idea isn't stolen before I can even take flight.
Does anyone know any very good resources about protecting oneself in the competitive world of Internet business? Has anyone dealt with this or have any suggestions? I suppose I could use help with other aspects too, such as effective advertising and managing/paying employees.
Thanks, sorry if this isn't the place for this question
