Re: WAHMing ideas and copyright?

There are copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, and patents. It depends on your product, the money and time you have to spend, and what you are trying to accomplish. Each type of protection entails and requires something different. For example, I can't just patent anything. My product has to meet the requirements for a patent and my patent application (which is a bit tricky to get right if you are not familiar with the parameters you need to stay within) will have get approval from the examiner. A patent takes years to obtain, so it might not even be worth my time and energy to get one.

Since it is a secret, I can't offer you any more advice.
