Hello everyone,


I would like to protect and secure my work that I have on Excel spreadsheet ? with a worldwide Copyright.

Since this is a computer data about Lottery, I'm not sure how to do it ?

Which way would be the best cover for it ?

If someone would copy, sell or use my work, I would be able to prouve that I'm the sole owner of it.


If anyone know anything about it, I'm all ears, any address, web site, or lawyer, I live in Los Angeles.

Thank you all.

Serge.

            Your best bet is probably password encryption. You'll find it under "Prepare" on the Main Menu in Excel 2007.

              Hi Gary,

              Thanks for the answer, but I'm not trying to protect the worksheet, I'm planning to have a website and I don't want people to still my ideas, this is why I need a protection.

                He'd be copyrighting his beet-growing formula if that were the case.

                  I read this on a website for Excel users and developers...

                  "Worksheet protection is not really intended to prevent people from accessing data in a worksheet. If someone really wants to get your data, they can. If you really need to keep your data secure, Excel is not the best platform to use."

                      It's not stealing if it's offered freely but free information isn't always good information.

                        If you are planning on creating a website for some "Lottery system" you created, you can rest assured someone has already thought about it.

                         

                        Also most online lottery systems are sucessfully created through other options, not excel.

                         

                        I guess for me to understand more, there would be more information needed. I don't want to assume.

                          Hi Raven62,

                             Theres no harm in posting a question to a group of people I feel would guide me accordingly.

                             Im neither stealing time nor knowledge, whom ever doesnt want to aide me need not reply.

                             As it clearly states under your post "its not stealing if its offered freely".
                          so do yourself a favor and save your own time, dont answer me...

                          Serge.

                            It is: If in asking/begging for Excel Help: It was omitted that it was for the Development of a  Commercial Venture!

                              Hello Serge-

                              Here is a simple, straightforward method to bring Uncle Sam to help. Make a copy of everything you claim, fully seal w/ tape all in a envelope.

                              Now mail ipacket to yourself registered mail, after sign for delivery don't open same. Not sophistivated or expensive but it does put a time/date stamp on same which can be acceptable as basic prime proof of authorship/ownership if nothing has been filed before.

                              A temporary "POOR MANS COPYWRITE" but has president as legally accepted document.

                              Anyway something to consider in the meantime......

                               

                               

                              Bon Chance & Pray that St. Varton fpr protection Wink,
