I have a problem: copyright doesnt really protect ideas, like ebay can be copied again and again as it has. I have an idea, but know it will probably get copied, or simply dont want to risk losing a large amount of the profit. Are there tactics to avoid this? I had thought about promoting a few websites with the same idea, is this a good tactic? Its the only one i can think of at the moment! Also, i cam to the conclusion that it was a bad idea to advertise on your site that it was the only one of its kind! As usual, non-plastic talk answers would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks.
