Have you read the story "They Stole My Idea" in the Stories section? It may give you some thoughts on how to protect yourself and move forward. I hope so. Best wishes. Here's the link:
Do I understand that you want to sell an IDEA ? That ain't enough, Mcgee. You need a working example.
Even if you have a working example, no one will buy a "pig in a poke".
The typical way to approach this is to require a non-disclosure agreement before divulging the 'secrets". but if this in the public domain as fairly comon knowledge, the value of the non-disclosure agreement is limited to that which the one who signed it chooses to comply.
Anyone can have a great "business idea".
For an business idea to acutally be worth something, it needs to be successful.
Welcome to the community, and I wish you well in your endeavors.

i have a great biz idea and would like to sell it but am concearned about people that i present the idea to stealing it from me. i dont really want to go through the whole legal etc. of copywriting etc.. i have several other good to decent biz ideas but again dont want them stolen. is there a place for people like me in the biz world. idea makers. do i have to make the biz then demonstrate it working to be able to sell it. i have very little capital and thus very low risk tolerance. i'm taking biz courses right now at local college while working 40hrs a week. i def. want to make more of myself and see hapiness only in being an entrepenuer. suggestions?
