Since my forum is not my own coding, I haven't had anybody steal those ideas. However, I have had people take some of my ideas for topics.

And you were able to stop it how?

There is a service called DMCA. But it is for contents. Not sure whether it covers topic ideas.

I once found that some of my threads/posts were just copy-pasted on another site. I couldn't do much but report the content as spam/stolen and the administrator took actions appropriately.

It is also possible to contact the hosting company about such incidents. If we can prove it, they might take the website down.

Nothing stops us from taking a legal action. But a lot of people let it go unless it is very serious.

I have some public domain drum lessons. I made them public domain because I simply cannot afford the fees to copyright and to enforce it. Anyway, though, I don't really care who uses my stuff, as long as they can't claim they did it first, a lie, and then sue me, lol. Well, anyway, I hope my CC0 license from Creative Commons is enough.
