How to protect your ideas in the digital age is actually not that different from what you would have done pre-internet.
The main difference now is the speed at which your idea can be shared with the rest of the world if you don’t do something about protecting it.

Something they worked on as a break from their “real work”.
Once it was released, it didn’t take long before everyone on public transport was playing it on their mobile phones, and more besides.
