When it comes to creative material, whether it be literary, musical art piece or other documents, there is one thing all those things are prone to unless the necessary precautions are taken, the authors works can be copied, taken and reused. There is nothing stopping anyone taking your ideas and works, if there is no clean cut sign or signal that tells them that they can't, and legally if there is nothing standing in the way, they aren't doing anything wrong, and if a dispute is filed by the original author, they really don't have a leg to stand on in this case. However, there is something you can do, and it has been done for many, many years now to protect your works from being stolen, and reused without your consent, you can copyright your material. If you copyright your materials nobody can use your content without your permission, and they must credit you somewhere within a description, stating that you have allowed them to use your materials.
Using copyright will allow you to keep your ownership of your works, receive royalties, and much, much more. If you choose to allow others to use your creations, it will allow your name and reputation to spread wide across the globe, and do your career wonders. People who fail to use copyright on their works get very frustrated and angry when they find someone else using their materials, when really, they should have copyrighted their works at the moment of complete creation, so that matters couldn't get out of hand. This is often the case with music, someone will write a song in a band, then the band will break up, and other members who didn't write the music or lyrics will use them, and the author of the material will become infuriated. You can still copyright material after a band breakup as long as nobody else has attempted to do so. So in order to prevent this from occurring, you should copyright all your materials as you write them.
Years ago, you had to send off for copyright ownership of something, and it could be a lengthy process.
