Do you ever worry someone will steal your freelance work?

So one thing I am always afraid of when it comes to the idea of working freelance, is that sometimes people can steal your work. For example, I worked for a website years ago, and they hired a freelance writer to help with blog articles. Well, this guy decides to steal content from already established articles to pass it off as his own. I at the time, always checked written articles to make sure they were unique and legit. That bugs me, because I did a lot of writing at that job myself, and this guy comes in and just plays it easy, it's so heartbreaking sometimes. Anyway, do you ever worry of your work being stolen by other freelance workers?

I imagine it is, simply because we're social distancing, and doing freelance work online is probably the best thing you can do until things clear up. I personally feel this pandemic is going to last another year or more. This is why it's probably a good idea to look into freelance work, as you can do it from the comfort of your home.
