list 43 things I love about the Constitution of the United States (read all 11 entries…)
#7 Copyright Protection

©. That is a very important symbol!

I am writing a book. I have been extremely cautious about releasing much information about it in fear that someone would steal my ideas and sell them as their own. I am not groundlessly paranoid. It has actually happened to me before with some of my art.

Enter Article I, Section 8, clause 8, which secures to me exclusive rights to my own intellectual property.

Becoming acquainted with copyright law in itself does not necessarily take one back to the Constitution, but that is where it came from.

So, just because I know this, am I going to sue the people who stole my work and made money off of it? No. I will take it as the flattery it was probably meant to be and be more protective of my ideas from now on, at least until I’m published.
