: : According to one of the many responses, a person is not able to copyright an idea only print and/or written material. My question then is if you have an idea that would benifit a major company how can you present your idea to them without the risk of it being taken and used as if it were their idea?
Your lucky if you can get a company to look. Many of the big companies will not look or if the look will only do it if you waive confidentiallity. I call that a waiver of the American Flag.
Even with a confidentiality agreement there still may be legitimate vulnerablity.
