As a group-training instructor I listen to A LOT of music, especially when a new term is about to start. In my case mainly House. One thing that I really like about the ”House community” is that everyone builds upon each other’s ideas all the time. It’s actually a prerequisite to make remixes of other DJs songs. A win-win situation: the “remixer” gets a great song for her/his set, and the original artist’s music is spread.
What if we would fully embrace that idea in business and let others advance our ideas instead of trying to protect them at all cost? Interesting thought, right? 🙂
