What is Copyright data?

CURRENT SOCIETAL CONCERNS Elpidio V.Peria 3 February 2013 Access to climate data is important. Last 3 December 2012, ALERTNET reported[1] that in Colombia, climate researchers complain of lack of access to data because it is expensive. Its main climate data service, the Institute of Hydrology, Meteorology and Environmental Studies, charges more for access to its information than similar agencies in its Andean neighbors, and this lack of access to data, the scientists say, affects decision-making processes and puts lives at risk. According to the World Meteorological Organization…

Veterinary Goodwill Valuations

Corporate Veterinary Medicine has been an issue that has been growing for veterinarians world wide.   America was probably the first country to have to face this issue and it has never really gone away.  Australia is now facing the first of what will probably be a few corporate buys.   As always there are two sides to every coin and I hope to examine the issues facing both the veterinary client and the veterinarian. Issues facing Veterinarians….. I am 55, I have been the sole owner of a two man practice for the last 15-20 years.  The practice has a nice annual turnover and I…

The Art of Selling Intangibles

The ‘average investor’ has 10 ways they trip themselves up. Do you show any of these tendencies?   Think you have an idea about what the “average investor” might be? You may well be surprised to know they have 3 major attributes: they are overconfident, they are short sighted and they pretty likely to buy shares at the worst time. What they don’t possess is the ability to think long term and be disciplined in their financial approach. Generally, a complete lack of understanding of the inherent disadvantages of investing is at the root of the typical investor’s problems.  But…

Strategic Acquisition of Human Resources

Strategic Acquisition of Human Resources

After working in a number of talent acquisition groups over the course of my career, I have often reflected on the many comments and sentiments that have been shared with me about the function. My belief has been and always will be that talent acquisition is the only function within HR that can destroy the business and HR. If you can’t get people through the door, there is no need for benefits, compensation, employee relations, or any other facet of HR because there is no one working at the company. Surely, if there are no people or hires coming through the door there is no…

Simple explanation of Goodwill

Simple explanation of Goodwill

Why was Rodney Stuckey inactive against the Magic? Is he still considered a long-term building block -- or might he be traded by the NBA s Feb. 21 deadline? Right now we have more questions than answers. Rodney Stuckey has not had a good year. He s been up and down but mostly down as he struggles to adjust to not being the primary ball handler when on the floor. First, he played second fiddle to point guard Brandon Knight in the starting lineup. Then he asked to come off the bench and had a brief resurgence. Then he lost the ball again when Will Bynum decided it was time for…

Simple definition of Copyright law

During his confirmation hearing for the Supreme Court, Judge Robert Bork said one of his attractions to the court was that it would be an “intellectual feast.” There is certainly a feast going over the impending Supreme Court consideration of same-sex marriage. A mountain of friend-of-the-court briefs has landed in the hands of the Supreme Court, some of them utterly fascinating. Two of the briefs are notably interesting, one from Professor Robert George of Princeton and his talented young collaborators Ryan T. Anderson of the Heritage Foundation and Sherif Girgis who is toiling…

Separately acquisition of intangible assets

 By Joseph A. Ernst, Esq.      Under SOP 50 10 5(D), which became effective on October 1, 2011, revisions were made that significantly affected EPC-OC transactions. Lenders are now required to bifurcate business acquisitions that include real estate owned by an EPC into two loans. Such bifurcation of what once could be a single loan is the result of the new prohibition in SOP 50 10 5(D) that an “EPC may not use loan proceeds to acquire a business, acquire stock in a business or any intangible assets of a business or to refinance debt that was incurred for those purposes.” SOP…

Selling patent plants

Well, here we are on February 1st and our catalog is at the printers, keeping us on track to be the latest seed catalog available. Cutting edge. Our catalog may be late, but our website is up to date and we have been hard at work cranking out orders, cleaning seed we grew last year, and planting our gold beets that spent the winter in bags in a cooler. Everything is looking good, no massive floods to wipe out our overwintered crops this year, and the time to start seeds is fast approaching. Here is a teaser from the new catalog, just to hold you over until you receive it. A…

Selling Patent for royalties

Selling Patent for royalties

Patent royalties from an improvement or invention are what most people are trying to achieve with their invention ideas. A licensing agreement is a contract between an inventor and a company. Typically the contract gives the company the right to manufacture and sell the invention. The inventor is referred to as the licensor of the invention. The licensor receives a small percentage on each product that is sold. Many inventors come up with a great idea and wish to sell this idea to another company in trade for patent royalties for use of their product or service. This makes sense…

Selling Goodwill tax

When you started your business, you may have had issues on your mind other than choosing the best corporate entity form for an eventual sale. Now that you are thinking about your exit, however, entity choice (C or S corporation) has become critically important. That’s because selling your company’s assets inside the wrong entity can cost an extra 40 percent in taxes of your sale price: an unacceptable prospect for most owners. Operating as a C corporation during start up and growth years allows you to take advantage of lower tax rates. When you sell your corporate assets, however…

Selling Goodwill Items

I recently watched the documentary Craigslist Joe through Netflix and was reinvigorated to get back on the Craigslist bandwagon. (Although the movie was about Joe’s project to spend 30 days relying entirely on Craigslist for all food, housing, transportation and entertainment.) Obviously, this wasn’t going to be my thang, but it did get me off my duff and back on track with decluttering my house through Craigslist. Because “Crap out of the house, money in” is the backup tagline for The Non-Consumer Advocate. (Remember my love letter to Craigslist? ) After years of garage sales…

Selling Goodwill clothes

Mark this as one of my favorite finds of the year—a vintage Gucci chain-strap purse. Label lovers and vintage fans alike will be drooling over this bag, just like me! This beautiful navy convertible clutch is likely from the late 1960s or early 1970s. During that time, there were no tags inside Gucci bags, but there was a gold stamp to let you know you had a bag from the famed Italian design house. This one says “Made in Italy by GUCCI” on the inside. A twist on the double-G logo is present at the clasp, as you can see here, as well as along the chain. This classic navy purse…

Moss is clearing space in its closet for you, gentlemen. The designer consignment-store-for-the-cool will be accepting and selling men's inventory come March.  When the neighboring business, Howl, closed, owner Masha Poloskova decided it was the perfect opportunity for Moss to expand into the space and bring the opposite sex into the fold.  Moss has seen steady business since its opening in 2010 owing to the unique, straightforward model. Anyone with high-ticket items is invited to clean out their closet and bring the goods into Moss, whereupon Poloskova and staff will…
