Have you come up with a brilliant and novel concept for a reality television show that you want to pitch to production companies and/or networks but are afraid that they might steal your idea? The reality of the situation is that they can and if they do, there is not much that you can do about it. However, there are certain steps that you can take to help prevent your concept from being misappropriated, or at the very least, provide you with a solid foundation to try to obtain a settlement if your concept is stolen.
