Evaluation of non-physical resources

Evaluation of non-physical resources

The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act or Right to Education Act (RTE) was passed amid great fanfare by the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) in August 2009, and came into force on, ironically, Fool’s Day - April 1, 2010. The provisions of the Act and its demerits have been discussed abundantly, and there is little that can be seen as positive in the (probably) well-intentioned but train wreck of legislation. In fact, newspapers have been filled with RTE frictions in school since the Act came into force. In this post, I’ll focus on a an equally serious issue…

Strike two In a pretty rare situation, a trademark holder that filed and lost a UDRP, filed for a second time and lost again. The domain at issues is CompareTheMarket. You can read the case summary below but you got to love the trademark holders opinion of the UDRP system, one which I don’t think I have ever heard before: “”With regard to the decision of the Panel in Administrative Proceeding No. 100421 the Complainant presents further observations, concluding that the effect of the Panel’s reasoning in that Administrative Proceeding gives cyber-squatters (particularly “first…

Definition of organizational learning

Someone reached out to me on what is the difference between Explicit and Tacit knowledge and I thought I would pen down the difference here too! Tacit knowledge is what people carry in their minds and we find it difficult to access. There are times we are not ourselves aware of the the knowledge we possess and also how valuable it can turn out to be if shared with others. The transfer of tacit knowledge mainly happens through personal contact and trust but this is considered to be very valuable. Many times this is not shared, primarily because we are unable to communicate all…

A mate reached out to me today asking if I knew any geeks who would be interested in working with him on a startup project. Here are the details he shared: “I am looking for a super-intelligent web and app all-round coder, hacker and mash-up artist to work on a seriously awesome new venture. We have developed some outrageously good Intellectual Property and concepts, and the plan is to rapidly prototype for 6-8 weeks before seeking the next round of funding – in order to increase the likelihood and valuation of a VC deal. The concept is a location-aware, social, mobile, commerce…

Here, I would like the true patrons of Oxford dictionary definitions, to quiet down – I live by the Wikipedia. Getting back to the original strain of argument – Why do we need art? We don’t need it for anything tangible – we have the engineers, commercialists, CEOs and other vocational-experts in the…

Before I talk about trademarks, I want to preface this post by saying that I am not an expert in trademarks, nor do I have any authority on the matter. My insights are based on my experiences as a trademark holder and business person. You may want to consider talking with an attorney if a trademark is something you are seriously considering for your business. Now on with the post I find that trademarks are a pain in the neck. I don't like them, but do find them absolutely necessary for my business. Here's why: My business is something I've worked really…
