The IP side of your Intellecto
Updated: Jun 16
First of all, I would like to address all the readers as #Brainiacs. I suppose that most of you are, to some extent, familiar with the attributes of IP Law. We all know that the inventor of a machine, the author of a book or the writer of a piece of music, "owns" its work. Hence, you are probably aware of the fact that you cannot copy or simply buy a copy of these works without considering the rights that are implicit in them. Every time we buy these protected works, part of what we pay goes back to the owner as a reward for the time, money, effort, and ideas it has invested in the creation of the work. Over the years, this has led to the development of many industries, such as the music industry, which has expanded around the world, encouraging new talent to produce more original ideas and items; patents, that are the lifeblood of the tech industry and allow companies to put their inventions on lockdown for up to two decades. Last but not least, we also have trademarks. Even if you don't realize it, everyone deals with them on a daily basis. Consumer's purchasing decisions are influenced by trademarks and the reputation that such brands represent. Well, #Brainiacs, all of this is called #IntellectualProperty.
As you sweep across the world, you will see that Intellectual Property is everywhere! It is the output of innovation, new products, and protected technologies so that they can thrive in the marketplace. IP rights not only protect but also drive enterprises' commercial success.
Let's have a closer look. IP is a set of rights associated with the creations of the human mind. If you create something, invent a product, write a program, lyrics, etc., you are engaged in creating intellectual property, like any other property that you can sell, license, gift, etc. The law allows the creator to benefit from the creation economically. Thus, it consists of all the pieces of your business that you or your employees have thought of. It's the things that differentiate you from the competition that you came up with using your #intellecto.
Having all these in mind, the posts uploaded on this website could help you understand various avenues of IP and, eventually, develop other hidden sides of your #intellecto. The acquired knowledge and understanding of the IP works will, in return, assist you in realizing the potential benefits arising out of your work and effort. We will also highlight the emerging issues in this field to orient you toward the bases of it. Innovation moves fast, my friend! So let's try to keep up with it through this blog. You're in the right hands, so let's explore this particular field together.
See ya, Brainiac.
