I'm a 19 year old Canadian, and I've created a unique platform in regards to social media. I'm currently alone in this project and I feel the need to hold it close to me; as I've heard horror stories about idea theft.
I'm preparing my idea to a state of presentability. I plan on creating a very detailed and informative video for a fundraiser I will be starting on Indiegogo (since Canadians are not allowed on Kickstarter).
Is there any sort of way to protect my idea while it is on Indiegogo? Patents are rather useless these days.
I've had plenty of ideas in the past; ventures I've wanted to pursue, etc. But until now, I haven't had the courage to believe in them, and I really do believe in this, but I'm scared to death on how it will play out.
