An Idea with a "Gig" vs Opensource

I would like to share you guys about an idea being implemented via a dedicated paid “Gig” vs open source via free community contributors. Let’s say a “Project Leader” comes up with a great idea to implement something in an innovative way and goes with the “Gig” approach - Assigning a dedicated resource with a specific fee, then the Source Code, Intellectual property etc. belongs to the owner of the project and not the developer(s).

Since you made the idea public, An Idea is in general can be implemented by anyone in the world. There are various reasons you want to make your project public funded and coded. In the end, the protection that you get is for what it’s being implemented via a “Gig” with a pay, as she/he has to work as a freelancer for a fixed price.

Let’s say you want your idea and don’t want to invest in implementing. Meaning, you expect the community to help, which is totally fine but the “Source Code” or Intellectual Property belongs to the “Contributors”. Which means, the contributors have the right to sell to other clients or do whatever they wish.

Ranjan Dailata Useful post for people who are looking for IP protection on Collaborizm.
Here is what i think,
I agree with what you are saying when looking at a developers perspective. it gives clarity for what is protected and what is not.
But when looking from perspective of someone who is sharing his/her idea for valuation or guidance,
We here at Collaborizm should also make people feel safe to share their ideas so that they can openly share about the product they are planning upon and get help or guidance.

I will let others share their opinion.
