What you need to know about protecting your creative ideas

How to protect your creative work.

Part 1 of 3

Hey there,

Sometimes people get a little paranoid about protecting their creative work. They might have a belief that others are out to "steal" their ideas, etc.

When I was just starting out, I was concerned about this, too.

There's an important distinction between sharing a message and stealing it.

Books are a tool for sharing your message. But it would be a nightmare to have someone steal your stuff.

Here are some questions:

(1) Is the law on my side?
(2) What is the difference between my ideas and my book?
(3) What is the best way to protect your creative work?


Answer to question 1:

Is the law on my side?

In other words, will the law protect my creative works? The answer is yes. The law is on your side.

Here's another way to put it:

As soon as you put words to paper, they are copyrighted.

If you like, I can help you to get your book officially registered with the US copyright office.

Fortunately, I've never had anyone "rip-off" my manuscripts, titles, etc.

That would be illegal. But it is perfectly legal to steal ideas. So what's the difference between someone stealing your ideas and stealing your book?
