    ccmfans.net is the Central Coast Mariners fan community, and was formed in 2004, so basically the beginning of time for the Mariners. Things have changed a lot over the years, but one thing has remained constant and that is our love of the Mariners. People come and go, some like to post a lot and others just like to read. It's up to you how you participate in the community!

    If you want to get rid of this message, simply click on Join Now or head over to https://www.ccmfans.net/community/register/ to join the community! It only takes a few minutes, and joining will let you post your thoughts and opinions on all things Mariners, Football, and whatever else pops into your mind. If posting is not your thing, you can interact in other ways, including voting on polls, and unlock options only available to community members.

    ccmfans.net is not only for Mariners fans either. Most of us are bonded by our support for the Mariners, but if you are a fan of another club (except the Scum, come on, we need some standards), feel free to join and get into some banter.

Journals are nothing new. Sounds like a money grab
Journals are indeed nothing new - no one endorses a journal, so it’s obviously the sports psychology content that goes along with it. Copyright claims are difficult. She would have consulted and must be able to show he’s directly taken and used her content or going public like this means If she has no evidence he’ll counter sue for defamation.

Until proven otherwise. Very much looks like the Guy is an idiot.

Correct and that is what she is claiming, he used her psych content. It’s not just the journal.

Could be hard to prove it’s her content as much of this would be in the teachings of her profession.
She would have prove that she has come up with something outside of the standard teachings. She would want to have something like published works etc.

She may have recorded the conversations but would that constitute copywrite material and would she have to break client confidentiality to prove that.

Could be more interesting than first thought

Yeah. If it's just general knowledge that was only disclosed verbally, can't see how she could win though that could still get a settlement for it to go away quickly. At a guess, from the outside it sounds like she taught Stefan how to journal, what's important, best ways to do it etc...then he did it, and went, hey I could make a product out of this. He should have approached her and gone into partnership.

But if she can show, the journaling he has used in his product, is specific in any clear ways to what she developed herself to teach her clients, he's in big trouble. Because she can already prove that this information was disclosed to Stefan by her. Which is the other hard thing in these cases where people can rip off your idea but then say, no, no I got all my inspiration from X,Y & Z public sources. Which has actually happened to me before. And you then have to prove they had access to your IP.
