Episode 221: How to be a Lifetime Creative in a World Where Work Gets Stolen (FS221)

Recently we’ve experienced some work being stolen. Creative ideas getting plucked up and sold elsewhere without attribution.

This isn’t new for us. Nor is it new for many who do work online.

In creative work there is often this risk that ideas or product can be stolen, used elsewhere by other people.

In fact, you may have heard that old adage great artists steal, which is to say that much of your own creative work may be have been heavily influenced by other work that came before you.

How can we indie entrepreneurs navigate these tumbly slopes? How should we think about this? How should we behave and how should we protect ourselves?

This is what we get into in the podcast today. A great episode for any of us who want to be lifetime creatives.

Enjoy!
