Before You Try To Protect Your Online Course From Thieves, Know That No Method Is Foolproof. That’s Why We Aim To Convert Our Smartest Thieves Into Affiliates
You can hire the best Intellectual Property attorneys in town, but clever thieves only get cleverer by the day. Online course-creators really have no choice. You can do your best to protect your online courses, but every now and again, the pirates will outsmart you.
Some course-creators have a fit when their course videos or downloadable courseware gets pinched and resold under another brand name. Some other course-creators though adopt a more blasé attitude.
They figure that a little thievery actually may end up promoting their original courses, especially if the thieves are not ultra-careful. Some thieves do such a scrappy pinching job at speed, that they forget to clean up fully, and they leave many clues that leads back to your original course.
At Solohacks Academy, we believe in doing everything legal to protect our brainchild, but beyond that if we spot a reasonably intelligent thief, we make him an affiliate earning offer he cannot refuse. He knows we know about him, so he gladly takes us up on the offer and we have a win-win.
