Default protecting an idea

as some of you know, ive had a few idea's knocked off in the past and as i come up with new idea's id like to find a better way of protecting myself from my hard work simply being copied at there benefit. patents arent really an option for little me. its around 2500-3k and only covers US makers copying. not china.

lets hear some thoughts please

Don't share them with anyone.... or, if you want to share them, sell them yourself. Then they at least have to pay you for the idea they want to steal. Name the new idea, and be very vague about whatever it is but that it is a benefit to the design. Make them reverse engineer to figure it out

I mean, ideas are stolen by lazy people, so if you make them work for it a little, they probably won't put in the time to steal it

IMO not much you can do, someone always trying to make a dollar off another man's ideas and usually have the money and means to do so on a larger scale than the original designer. If it is something you 90% sure it would sell like hotcakes/ or a huge market for try collaborating with someone/company

the concept at hand is a voice coil design. wouldnt be hard to copy even for lazy people as long as they have a phone. they would have to get access to the wind file which is under my name but thats not to say they cant order them with my design simply spoken. id like to find a company but not all companies like to innovate vs maximize profit that would work with a small guy

Ford just a bought a tesla. Everyone reverse engineers everything, area 51 has ufos they are trying to reverse engineer. Patents are only as good as your attorney. Imagine your 5 thousand dollar attorney against a corporation's staff of million dollar a year attorneys. Try approaching companies you think would rip you off first with a non disclosure form. LOL I couldn't get one to sign it cause they thought they could be working on the same idea too. Try showing someone you can trust first in the biz, maybe Jacob? Good luck

Take all of your plans, schemos, drawings, sketches, blah blah and mail them to yourself from the post office. You now have a government time stamp on when you created and mastered the idea. If someone steals it they have to prove 100% that they came up with the idea or at least had it in the planning stages before your post dated stamp that proves when you had the idea.

Just keep the unopened letter in your drawer and if shit goes left pop it out and they'll open it in court. You won't automatically "win" per se but it'll go a long way towards proving ownership of the IP. And then you can sue in a different court for them making money from your idea once you prove you came up with it first.
