Intellectual Properties

...• The intellectual propriety refers to the creations of mind such as names, inventions, artworks, literary works, music compositions, and commercial designs. There are two major categories of Intellectual Propriety (IP): 1. Industrial Propriety: trademarks, inventions (patents), and designs, etc. 2. Copyrights: musical works, novels and books, photographs, movies, etc. Intellectual propriety rights (IPR) grant the holders to exercise a monopoly on the use of product/creation/idea for a limited period of time. For most of companies, IPR is the only way to protect their products and compete in the worldwide market. Same as the companies, IPR encourage inventors to develop new technologies and ideas. • IPR infringement has reached a critical level in many countries. The sectors mostly hit by this phenomenon are software houses, luxury companies, music/movie industries, and pharmaceutical products. Illegal downloading of software, music, movies, and imitations & counterfeit products became one of the biggest problems for all these sectors which lead to large loses in terms of income. • The countries most affected by IPR infringements are China, North Korea, Russia, Brazil, and India. According to the Business Software Alliance, in China, 79% of the software and 85-90% of music records have been pirated. Issues: • There are two major problems related to IPR infringements for the companies: the loss in income and the loss of reputation/image. • The piracy......

Intellectual Property

...Intellectual Property Overview© Patents, copyrights ,and trademarks are all examples of protections of intellectual property (IP) Intellectual property has many definitions, but is usually considered to be information having commercial value and original products of the mind. Intellectual property isn’t tangible, but can be protected by the law. Intellectual property is not an item that was invented, but the thought process and plans that allowed the item to be invented and manufactured. Intellectual property is not the clothing that is sold in stores, but rather the brand name that represents the quality and style of the clothing. Patent and trademark laws have been in effect in the United States for more than 200 years. The purpose of such laws is to promote science and the arts by allowing inventors and authors/creators exclusive use of their product for a limited time. The United States Patent and Trademark office (USPTO) is a federal government agency under the Department of Commerce, which examines and issues patents and registers trademarks. Protection under intellectual property laws is a mainstay of the United States’ economy and industry, allowing products to be invented, new uses to be found for existing products, brands to built, and jobs to be created. Patent is defined as an exclusive right to the benefits of an invention or improvement granted by the U.S. Patent Office, for a specific period of time, on the basis that it is novel —not previously known or......

...Another article that we choose is "dealing with the management of intellectual capital". Intellectual capital means the collective knowledge of the individuals in an organization or society. This knowledge can be used to produce wealth, multiply output of physical assets, gain competitive advantage, and/or to enhance value of other types of capital. Intellectual capital includes customer capital, human capital, intellectual property, and structural capital. As the intellectual capital is intangible, it is difficult for the accountants to make valuation on it. In this article, it said" it is observed that valuation should not be left to the market but that internally the role of strategic management accounting can inform valuation, support decision and promote competitive advantage." There are three special and important element in this model. It used a discounted economic approach to determine the comprehensive value of the enterprise. It models the firm as a series of inputs, conversion processes and financial outputs. These are joined together using cause and effect linkages which are developments of performance measures. The benefits of this model are information is generated in a form that can be used as a supplement to the annual accounts for the benefit of management and shakeholders. It can assist management in making decisions, particularly where alternatives need to be investigated and valued. It avoids the categorisation of the......

...Legal Issues of E-Business and Intellectual Property LAW/421 Intellectual property is the key factor in e-business, and without it e-business could not properly function. Intellectual property is an umbrella term that groups trade names, trademarks, domain names, patents and copyrights. Similar to traditional business, trade names and trademarks, used in the virtual world, is normally ruled by the same laws and standards. Although domain names’ function differently from trade names and trademarks, they are still subject to the same laws and guidelines as trade names and trademarks. The use of trade names, trademarks, and domain names in e-business is subject to the regulations of each country in which the e-business operates (Burke, 2002). Although e-business has the ability to offer secure purchasing transactions combined with immediate verification and confirmation of credit card transactions, there are still some risks that are involved regarding ethical and legal issues. In e-business there are many ethical and global issues relating to Information Technology. E-businesses use log files which extracts information on how visitors use a site. This process is known as web tracking. Companies use cookie analysis and tracking software to track an individual’s movement (Burke, 2002). Each tracking record is stored on the individuals PC’s hardware, and whenever the individual revisits the website, the system becomes aware of it.......

Intellectual Property

...Intellectual Property Intangible rights protecting the products of human intelligence and creation, such as copyrightable works, patented inventions, Trademarks, and trade secrets. Although largely governed by federal law, state law also governs some aspects of intellectual property. Intellectual property describes a wide variety of property created by musicians, authors, artists, and inventors. The law of intellectual property typically encompasses the areas of Copyright, Patents, and trademark law. It is intended largely to encourage the development of art, science, and information by granting certain property rights to all artists, which include inventors in the arts and the sciences. These rights allow artists to protect themselves from infringement, or the unauthorized use and misuse of their creations. Trademarks and service marks protect distinguishing features (such as names or package designs) that are associated with particular products or services and that indicate commercial source. Patent A patent secures a sole right for a limited period of time to prevent others from using the invention commercially. This sole right represents a key competitive advantage and serves to protect the assets produced by corporate research and development. The actual drafting of a patent application is decisive for the extent of the protection obtained. We possess expertise in all fields of technology. Trademark A trademark often represents a substantial asset and......

...Allison Morein BA 446 November 27, 2013 Mr. Drell Intellectual Property Since the beginning of time people have put their knowledge and creative to use to design all sorts of products. Since then, the creators have worked to protect their creations and ideas from others who want to take them. Creators have gone to great measures to protect their works. One famous, extreme case of this is of Shah Jahan, the emperor who built the Taj Mahal. Folklore has it that the emperor had the hands of his craftsmen cut off so that they could never create another monument such as that one. In today’s world we have laws to protect all types of intellectual property. Intellectual property is divided into four parts: patents, copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets. A patent is defined as a government authority to an individual or organization conferring right or title, especially the sole right to make, use, or sell some invention. It grants property rights on inventions and excludes those other than the patent holder from making, selling, or using the invention. There are three types of patents: utility, design, and plant. A utility paten is the most common type and covers any process, machine, article of manufacture, or composition of matter. A design patent covers any new, original, and ornamental design for an article of manufacture. A plant patent covers any new variety of asexually produced plant. A design patent lasts 14 years while a utility or plant patent lasts 20......

...Chapter 5 talks about intellectual property theft which is the result of any creative or innovative endeavor from a human and the expression of this endeavor like books, recording and choreography to name a few. With technology being a big part of our lives intellectual property theft is integrated into copyright statues. Intellectual property theft laws in the United States grant the exclusive ownership the rights to use produce and distribute creative work to the creator or author. There are four types intellectual property which are copyrights, patents, trademark and trade secrets. Copyrights deal with forms of creativity in communication like novels, music, songs and movies. Patents protect new invention and cannot be exploited without the authorization of the patent owner. Trademarks are designed to individualize goods to distinguish the source like a symbol, logo and a slogan. Before you can combat the theft of intellectual property theft we need to know what’s behind the motivation of the behavior of theft. Some believe that low self control is a result behind theft. With information technology being so advance it poses a serious threat to authors of copyright material. With every idea or invention being copied on to digital making it easier to copy distribute copyrighted material like computer software, pictures and music which is called piracy. A good example is when me and the family venture out to the swap meet and there you see a vendor selling bootleg movies for......

...Intellectual Property Stephanie Brandon MGT320 The Legal and Ethical Environment of Business Dr. Rogers November 10, 2013 Abstract This will be a short essay describing intellectual property (IP). The writer will explain the need for protection and ethical issue that may arise when IP is involved. Intellectual Property A thought or an image made into a creation others to use is a fitting description for intellectual property (IP). Just as any other property, IP needs protection from the evil of the world. Unfortunately, there is always someone waiting to profit from another person’s hard work and dedication. In order to protect IP the law provides patents, copyrights, trademarks, as well as trade secrets. Some people believe that providing protect creates a monopoly and want to shorten the term, in which a product is protective. The law benefits the creator and the consumer; it does create a monopoly but only for a short time in order for the creator to profit. Once the term of protection expires the consumer can then take the product and make improvements and even buy it cheaper. Without protection people would choose not to share their creation or invention, which would cause poor economy growth. Due to the laws of protection for IP, many lawsuits are filed each day. These types of lawsuits could last for years. A lawsuit that has lasted for a few years is Apple Inc. vs. Samsung; the lawsuit between the two electronic companies began in April 2011.......

...lawsuit. Because of the nature of Google's business, it would be wise for them to employ a team of individuals that are dedicated to adherence of the law when it comes to intellectual property. This will help mitigate the risk of Google of being accused of infringements, and lawsuits in the future. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, ETHICS, SECURITY Intellectual property includes patents, trademarks, and copyright. The laws on intellectual property protect the rights of any individual that produces an original work. These laws are crucial to the success of any economy, especially the entrepreneurial spirit of the United States. When people create, or invent new things they want to be assured that they can be protected by the law and enjoy the fruits of their labor. By protecting these individuals, it encourages them to create and invent new things. Bill Gates and Steve Jobs are perfect examples. If the law did not protect their inventions, anyone could copy their creations and Apple and Microsoft may not exist in the capacity that many Americans enjoy today. The Founding Fathers believed that intellectual property was so important, that it was included in the Constitution. From an ethical standpoint, stealing other people's ideas and passing them off as your own is wrong. By not enforcing intellectual property rights, it inhibits innovation and the world may not enjoy the products of creativity like penicillin, computers, and even the opportunity to "Google" something to......

Intellectual Property

...Intellectual Property and Copyright Infringement Laws Kaplan University November 7, 2014 Numerous organizations utilize cost management (CM) strategies in various ways. For instance, CM strategies are utilized when planning to implement new tasks, as a business model and to perform daily business transactions. During the planning stage, the costs are applied to the task and management must approve the costs before completing the tasks. Once all the costs are calculated, recorded and management approves the process; they continuously observe the project and the cost to ensure the strategy is in accordance with the CM strategy. On the other hand, once the task is completed to fulfill the business goals, the cost that were predicted are evaluated against the actual costs. The CM strategies will help keep the company’s budget under control to increase profitability at the same time. It is also imperative that organizations use a cost management strategy that will fit with the business requirements and processes before deciding to implement new projects. Organizations implement cost management strategies by creatively thinking of methods that will help the company maintain a competitive advantage and to meet consumer demand. Unfortunately, some cost management strategies may cause implications to arise when an organization increase production investments or violate several ethical laws. Some implications that may arise involve an increase in supply costs, the......

Intellectual Education

... Intellectual Education It has been emphasized in earlier chapters that education is not only an individual process, but a social process as well. The individual is born into the family and through the family, becomes a member of society. Society is an aggregate of many individuals, institutions, and functions, diversified in themselves, yet capable of a high degree of unification and integration for the social good. Man must live in society, conform to the customs of his group, and make the necessary adjustments to conventional standards, laws, and social forces. The experiences that the individual must undergo, as an interacting and cooperating member of society, are intimately related to the achievement of his final destiny. To equip the individual to meet these experiences and to be successful therein, various specific types of education are essential. Each of these types requires, fundamentally, the acquisition of specific knowledge, the formation of socially desirable habits and skills, the development of wholesome attitudes and appreciations, and the assimilation of the essential elements of the social heritage. For this assimilation to be effective, the social forces which influence the individual’s morality, personality, and character must be brought under proper control. This can be accomplished only when all agencies and institutions constituting society are governed completely and administered strictly according to the unchanging principles of the moral......

...Intellectual Property: A Fight for Ideas Park University Intellectual property as defined by the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy “is generally characterized as non-physical property that is the product of original thought” (Moore). According to the World Intellectual Property Organization “the rights in relation to: literary, artistic and scientific works; the performance of performing artist, phonograms and broadcasts; inventions in all fields of human endeavor; scientific discoveries; industrial designs; trademarks; service marks and commercial names and designations; and all other rights resulting from intellectual activity in the industrial, scientific, literary and artistic fields” ("Intellectual Property and Legal Services"). There is a distinct difference between traditional property laws and intellectual property laws. Property laws would give rights to the sole owner of an object such as a car. When the owner is driving the car no one else can drive the car. In regards to intellectual property the law allows other individuals to make use of the idea or invention as long as they have met the requirements, usually in the form of payment for the right. The idea of protecting one’s ideas has deep reaching roots that stretch back to the 17th century. Philosopher John Locke promoted intellectual property law with his idea “that a person should enjoy the fruits of his labor” ("Intellectual Property and Legal Services"). Protection for ideas were spread throughout......

...to report intellectual capital Summary In today’s knowledge economy, intellectual capital has been playing an increasingly significant role in creating corporate sustainable competitive advantages and becomes instrumental in determining the enterprise value. Though measuring the value of intellectual capital is difficult, with the emerging of intellectual capital valuation models, a number of leading companies have decided to make additional intellectual capital disclosure. This paper discusses and illustrates the intellectual capital statement. How to effectively measure and disclose intellectual capital in external financial reporting and how the accounting rules for reporting intangibles limit the recognition of intellectual capital and will also be discussed. The final part is proposed approaches to intellectual capital reporting. Introduction Our world is in the rise of new economy, principally driven by the information and knowledge. Today, a number of companies and organizations rely heavily on the knowledge and skills of their stuff and the network of the customer. As these intangible assets became increasingly critical, the limitations on financial statements in explaining a company’s value stress the fact that the source of economic value is no longer the production of material goods but the creation of intellectual capital. Background Definition Stewart first defined intellectual capital as intellectual material-knowledge, information, intellectual property,...

...considered as an important intellectual property (IP) asset. Trade-marks can also comprise the emblem (logo) of the company, the shape of an object, as well as a signature. Use of marks to indicate ownership of goods was particularly important for owners whose goods moved in transit, as those marks often allowed owners to claim goods that were lost. Producers often relied on identifying marks. Trademarks are often associated with a company's reputation or goodwill, and many companies have a brand name, which is associated with high quality etc. Different kinds of Trademark and Trademark symbols There are three basic types. Ordinary marks are words and/or symbols that distinguish the goods or services of a specific firm. Certification marks identify goods or services that meet a standard set by a governing organization. Distinguishing guise identifies the shaping of wares or their containers, or a mode of wrapping or packaging wares. TM for an unregistered trademark; SM for an unregistered service mark; for a registered trademark or service mark. Registration processes of trademark Trade-mark registration usually involves: A preliminary search of existing trade-marks; An application; An examination of your application by the Trade-marks Office; Publishing of the application in the Trade-marks Journal; Time for opposition (challenges) to the application; and Allowance and registration (if there is no opposition).

Intellectual Capital

...Intellectual Capital The term intellectual capital (IC) is synonymous with Intangible capital. IC collectively refers to all the resources and assets that defy conventional accounting measures, but which still determine the value and the competitiveness of an enterprise. IC is commonly divided into the areas of Human Capital, Structural Capital, Relationship/Relational Capital, and the Business Model. In our modern Information and Knowledge Economy, intangibles have progressively become the driving factors around which business revolves. Conventional bricks-and-mortar accounting is no longer sufficient to explain how Google, Netflix, LinkedIn, Apple, and General Electric are far more valuable than their financial assets. As of June 2011, Netflix's tangible equity was $290 million USD, yet its market value is over $12.8 billion USD (source: Yahoo Finances). The Apple Corporation, with $55 billion USD in conventional hard assets, was valued at over $272 billion USD with its intellectual capital included (source: Yahoo Finances). These dramatic value differences in company wealth defy traditional accounting logic. Intellectual capital is the new economics discipline that strives to explain the value of these high-knowledge organizations, and how they add value for their customers far beyond what bricks-and-mortar can measure. Karl-Erik Sveiby and Leif Edvinsson are commonly considered to be the first thought leaders of modern Intellectual Capital. Thomas Stewart and Patrick......
