The only way to do that is to have the people you deal with sign non-disclosure agreements before you disclose your ideas. Otherwise, anyone of them can take off with it. Also you could patentability for an idea that you have disclosed to others. I suggest that you contact a lawyer who specializes in intellectual property to set up a procedure for you to follow.

I hope that I have provided excellent service and, if so, would love a 5 star rating. If not, please let me know how I can further assist you. There is no additional charge to you for rating me. A bonus is not required, but is always appreciated.
