When someone freely shares their valuable work on a forum of this high level of public visibility, what is to stop a business enterprise from "monetizing" that contribution for their own enrichment (meaning a vendor who steals and markets (sells for profit) the indicators, strategy, or trading concepts/method).

Apparently there is nothing to stop someone from doing that.

Remember Beth?

Came in here, pulled heart strings, oh poor me i am working so hard, please help blah blah blah...

A lot of people helped her out and held her hand. I don't know if she could trade or not. She must make more money selling her indicators than trading.

Next thing you know she is flogging the stuff she got from others for money as a vendor.

then Beth and Nelson Fiedler ends up on Dragons Den no less.
