Say, for instance, a writer had an idea. and they needed help. this idea is felt as something of pioneering. so the writer has some hesitations with trusting any other group or faction with the idea. YET they need the support, the resources, and the funding for the idea to take off.
so how does this pseudo-entrepreneurial writer open the doors to major,well-known groups, without the idea being taken?
How does the writer trust in a corporate group/publishing company with the idea without it getting stolen?
Would it be as simple as a specific confidentiality contract and say, a microphone recorder at the first meeting? simply to cover all bases?


Also, how about computer security with these types of ideas? do major authors have some heavy encryption on their computer?

ANY and ALL help would be wonderful either personal experience or legalities in publishing or idea patenting and security measures for authors.

Thank You!

Bill Gates had the same problem when he stared to write computer programs to make computers more user friendly. He met with IBM. The meeting did not go well. He sought legal advice (his dad was a lawyer!) and decided to go it alone. Seems to have worked out okay. Good luck with your innovation!

What Shelagh said.  I might add that once you start, continue until completion.  Ideas to my knowledge are not something that can be protected.  Once you have your idea down on paper you have more protection. 
Many people have ideas and discuss their ideas with friends.  If the idea is good it is passed along.  Someone will do something with the idea if it is worthwhile.  An idea without action to implement it is worth nothing, IMV.
