I did not know where to put this but I feel that it fits under the General Writing section. I was suggested by friends and coworkers that I should create a wordpress blog for my short stories and my stories I am working on. My fear is viewers stealing my intellectual property and using my story for publishing or other forms of use. With my photography I always copyright my material and I always recommend on my website for people that want to use my images to contact me for permission. However with writing it is easy to copy and paste than ask for permission and having the fear of being denied. How do writers protect themselves from posting their stories online and how do you prevent your intellectual property from being stolen? Also is there an advantage for publishing works on blogs?
