Share your ideas: Copy-"right" or copy-"left" your idea

"Everything begins with an idea", said Earl Nightingale, an American motivational speaker and writer. 
Ideas can change the world. All successful organizations or businesses began with an idea that turned out to be great.
 
If you have had an idea, then chances are that many others would also have had the same idea or a somewhat similar idea and could already be working on it. Ideas arise out of common circumstances or needs. They usually follow the current trends.
 
Yet we are afraid or reluctant to share our ideas lest they be stolen by others. But it is always better to share your ideas. 
 
Sharing is gathering information. Brainstorming or debating your ideas with others gives you valuable feedback or insight about the viability of your idea, be it your family, friends, or colleagues, right at the very beginning. You can copy-"right" your idea, if you want. The diversity of their knowledge, skills and experience makes you better informed. You learn more about the pros and cons, you can rework your idea and take that first step on the path of converting your idea into reality. This is how innovations come about.

Brain tumor on the rise in Indian children
IMA says 90% of these cases are curable if the right treatment protocol is followed
 
New Delhi, 25 July 2017: According to statistics, every year about 40,000 to 50,000 people are diagnosed with brain tumor, of which 20% are children. What is alarming is that this figure was only about 5% up until a year ago. Additionally, each year about 2,500 Indian children are diagnosed with medulloblastoma. As per the IMA, provided the treatment procedure is followed correctly, about 90% of these cases are curable.
 
Medulloblastoma is a pediatric malignant primary brain tumor. It spreads through the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and frequently metastasizes to different locations along the surface of the brain and spinal cord. Studies show that brain tumor is the second most common cancer among children after leukemia.
