I am hesitant to post any of my work because my wife told me that anything I put on these forums can be stolen by someone else because there's no copyright. I really would like to develop my stories with fellow writers, but I'm afraid of getting my ideas stolen. How do I fix this? What can I do to protect my intellectual properties? I will say that my story ideas allow for other authors to "run with it" in my 'verse, but certain laws and concepts MUST remain intact. Help?
