    Hey you guys so I have an idea for a program I wanna get created to sell, but my worry is that when I find someone to do it, they are just gonna steal my idea and sell it themselves. Does anyone know a way to stop this from happening? Or a particular trustworthy and good place to have a program created? Thanks

    You can't really do anything to stop that; you are just gonna have to trust whom ever you pick to make your program.

    BTW, I'm a programmer and I probably can make whatever application is it you want. PM me if you are interested.

    PD: It just came to me, you could have your programmer sign a 'contract' forcing him not to reveal or use anything related to your program/idea(all done through a lawyer), but there isn't anything you can actually do to make sure that person actually doesn't use your idea...

    Hey Viv, yeh its hard to combat this and is something I too was cautious about in having a new site built. But in the end on the Internet there is enough for everyone :) with 2 billion people online (1/3 of the planet) you should be able to find some buyers even if you have competition.

    Look at F4ceb00k, My5p4ce was out long before F4ceb00k and it has still managed to get 80million members.

    If you got the right shit mate then you will kill it :)

    Well technically if you have an idea, and its worthwhile then I would suggest contacting someone in your area, that you can create a legal contract with, and giving them the jist of your idea, see if they can help you out, you give them the specifics of what you want, pay them, and have them sign a form agreeing that you are the sole owner of the intellectual property. Of course he's going to charge you, or you could go in there with a business plan, present your idea, but before you do have him sign an agreement stating that if he steals your idea, based on the binding contract you both created you will sue him for compensatory & punitive damages. Or tell him if he makes it for free you can both bank....just a thought...Good luck buddy

    One other thing to remember is not all programmers are entrepreneurs. A large portion of them are code monkeys its what they're good at and they make good cash doing it, but are not always out of the box thinkers. This is a massive generalisation but I have worked in the software industry for the past 10 years and this is my experience.

    But as Carryout says it is important to get a NDA signed by the potential programmer before showing any thoughts or ideas.

    My best source for locating quality and reasonable fees for programming is guru.com. I had really good success finding programmers on there.
