Definition of Copyright law for Kids

Image: Randen Peterson Everyone thinks their kid is the most gifted kid on the planet. But actually figuring out which kids are naturally smart, and which kids have simply prepared, is harder than you might think. Especially when those kids are four years old. The New York Times reports today that in the cutthroat world of private kindergartens, separating the truly bright kids from the kids whose parents will pay test preparation companies to train their kids for the test, is becoming increasingly challenging.

Definition of Copyright and patent

The parties and amici have filed over 25 briefs in this case, almost none of which address or even consider whether the actual right granted under Section 109(a)—to “sell or otherwise dispose of” copies—applies outside the United States; instead, they have focused almost exclusively on Section 109(a)’s “lawfully made under this title” preamble, resulting in unsatisfactory readings of the Copyright Act as a whole. As the American Intellectual Property Law Association has urged the Supreme Court in its amicus filing, applying long-standing extra-territoriality principles to the…

CRA Selling goodwill

The mechanics of the sale determine its tax treatment by Jamie Golombek It has been one year since the Supreme Court of Canada (SCC) handed down its now-infamous decision in Gifford v. the Queen (2004 SCC 15). Advisors will recall that the SCC found that both the payment to buy a client list and the interest paid on money borrowed to finance the purchase of the client list were not tax deductible.

VENTURES AFRICA – First of, great companies don’t just create great brands, they also create movements. Indeed, it’s always dangerous to make direct business analogies from sport, nevertheless, there are some useful things to learn about brand equity from Kaizer Chiefs.

Biggest selling copyrighted games

With no significant new software releases in January the top 10 sales chart remained largely the same. Madden NFL 13, NBA 2K13, and FIFA 13 all placed again following their strong 2012 campaigns where they finished 2nd, 6th, and 10th respectively.
