I have a lotto system that has produced 6 winning numbers before and now a developer programmer wants to turn my system into a lotto software but how do I protect myself from it beings stolen from me? Do I sit down with him and just reveal how everything works in hopes he wont steal my system and claim it as his own or do I create a contract? Yet I feel somewhat lost on what to say in the contract? The programmer believes in my system and is going to create the software for free for me but wants to use it to win too. It's sorta like a songwriter who writes a song and doesnt want someone else to say they wrote it. Or someone who invented an invention and I want to make sure no one claims it as their own. I have no problem with someone using my system to win but I created the system myself and would rather not have some programmer say that they created it and take the credit for it and possibly make a fortune from it by claiming that they invented it. How do I protect myself? Does anyone know or have some advice? At this point any advice is good advice.

    You need to have the programmer sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA). These agreements are common and any good lawyer can draw one up for you. Software programs are intellectual property and can also be protected by patent and copyright. Get in touch with a lawyer at your local legal aid society and ask for advice.

      Thankyou Big Hitter, I feel completely lost about this and on the verge of having the system put into an easy to use software and I have worked 10 years creating it. I appreciate the advice. Anyone else with advice and wit is very appreciated too.

        You consult a lawyer first as Big Hitter suggested; and, you don't reveal any more "info" about your system.

        Be wise...

        Don't do something you might later regret.

          Produced 6 winning jackpot numbers? Why would you want this system in the hands of someone else? Let me ask, have you ACTUALLY won any of these jackpots?Shifty

              Right, why sell a winning system if some of us could pool together and be big winners....  What?

                            If it's working fine without being in a computer program, why have someone program it?   If you feel it would work faster and better as a computer program then train yourself how to program.  Computer languages like Liberty Basic and KBasic were designed for just type of task, you could be writing your own computer programs within three months.
