I'm thinking about starting a web site, and have, as far as I know a unique idea, . . .

Is there a way of preventing a interloper from copying the idea ?

Patent and copyright attorneys can litigate the heck out of it. But they can't 'unring' the bell once the idea is exposed. You phrased the question in a way that I can answer it easily.

"Is there a way of preventing a interloper from copying the idea ?" Yes by not doing full disclosure on the website. If you do fully disclose on the website. You can't 'unring' the bell and it's out there for everyone.

And let me say this, get very very familiar with the term "Non disclosure Agreement" while you build your site and grow your idea. Otherwise it won't be yours for very long. :thumbsup:

Good food for thought !

I'm thinking if I go through with this then A game plan will be an essential ingredient.

I am also thinking processes, in other words a procedure to expedite a function like creating

a result using an electronic means would be patentable.
