So i have got an idea that i think may make a business opportunity one day. However at this stage it is just an idea as the product would require a fair bit of IT type programming etc which i would not be able to do myself. Also capital which i dont currently have.
Question is, how does one go about protecting an idea? Does it mean when you hire people to work on the project you get them to sign confidentiallity agreements? Patents? Copywrite? All of the above?
Is there any way you can just sell an 'idea' to a company? I would think not as you have no proof it was yours
