This sounds like a very interesting business idea.
Let me make one clarification, which is if you own at least 50% of the stock of the company, then it is you as the majority stockholder who is electing the board of directors. You can put yourself as a director or anyone that you choose, and you can remove them whenever you want. So, as long as you are the majority stockholder, the board would not be able to vote you out.
Regarding the intellectual property of the company, there is a way for you to protect it. You would register it and get trademarks issued in your name, personally, by the US Patent and Trademark Office.
Here is the link for you to do that:http://www.uspto.gov/trademarks/index.jsp
Then you, as the individual owner of the IP, can enter into a license agreement with your corporation whereby the corporation pays you a licensing fee or a royalty for the use of the intellectual property that is owned by you. You will always have ownership and control of it if you do it this way.
Good luck to you. I wish you all the best.
