I have come up with a few 'business' ideas - some are products, some are services, and some are purely just concepts yet to be made into reality.
I was wondering, is there a thing where I am able to 'sell' my ideas, without getting ripped off? Hypothetically, let's say I come up with the idea of coconut flavoured coca cola, and I take this to the Coca Cola Amatil. They tell me to p*ss off, then the next day they are selling coconut flavoured coke and making a fortune out of it - is there anything to prevent that from happening if I wanted to sell my ideas?
I remember there was a movie, can't remember the title, but it was based loosely on a true story of the guy who invented the intermittent windscreen wipers. He gave the idea to Ford, they told him they didn't like it, then did it themselves, and he spent the rest of his life fighting back for the recognition of inventing it.
