I need some suggestions as to how proved the ownership of content in case it is stolen using Web exclusively and that'd be the interest of every Webmaster publishing any content.
I mean I've plenty of content in form of images, pdf files, articles. Suppose I publish those articles - somebody else can then re-use it as one's own idea etc. Later it will be difficult to prove that it originally belonged to me( on a so and so date). We should be able to prove ownership in the courts( as against to Google)
Here is another related thread: Website content copied - How can I prove that I wrote it? .
Will it be ok to send those documents say in zip file using gmail to my other email accounts which I can use later to prove that those were with me during a time - assuming we can't change those sent dates in email accounts from reputed providers?
In the same way I can upload them in docstoc.com in pdf files, store them at any file sharing sites in zip, encrypted ( without divulging those urls).
Another idea is to make a video of documents and upload them in Facebook etc.
So I want to know if there are any better ideas!
