Yeah, well we came across this same line of questioning when we started TopCreatives. In the "How are my ideas protected" section, we describe how getting a digital timestamp of your idea can help you protect it. My reccomendation is to email as complete a version of your idea to yourself as soon as you can. What this does is gives you that digital timestamp, and if you do it asap, then you can prove that the idea was yours first, if in fact it was.

I can't tell youhow many times I put a ton of research and energy into creating a new concept, only to find out my idea had been done in some fasion or another, 20 years before I got into the business. Oh well -

but what if you are in different time zone = someone in japan and someone in africa had the same idea and did what you advised which time zone will be taken seriously?

i know, it's sucks.. adsoftheworld is a good avenue for that tho. post your work then when you see it come out somewhere else then you can say look... i did this before you did look what date,time and hour i posted these work. and yeah we should have an international clock-in for work.. first come first serve, but you know in your heart that you did that work first.
