Protecting an 'idea'

Just wondering how you protect an 'idea' - I am not talking about a product but more a concept, say if it was a tv programme 'concept' - anyone got any ideas how you would do that?

LOL. No it aint a quick money making idea either. Well it has a website involved but that aint the main thrust - I am just trying to protect a 'concept'.

'Ideas' themselves can't be copyrighted or trademarked.

Well how do tv programmes protect their idea - isnt there something like intellectual property rights or something.

I don't think tv programmes protect their ideas, they just do it. Look what happned with Simon Cowell vs Simon Fuller over X-factor.

Hey damion good to hear from you buddy. Great to read on your blog that you are getting married! Nice one!

Yeah I started getting active on this forum. I always watched but I was always "too busy" but saw that everyone was making nice new friends and had an 'online home' when they are working in the day so I thought I would get involved!

No enterprise is more likely to succeed than one concealed from the enemy until it is ripe for execution. - Niccolo Machiavelli

That's how I protect my ideas.
