Intellectual property rights violations ‘widespread’ – Registration ‘only way out’  February 10, 2013 – 05:41 am

intellectual property rights Intellectual property rights violations ‘widespread’ Registration ‘only way out’ KUWAIT: Many people suffered because their writings or photos were stolen or used by others without mentioning their right to what was their creation. Many of them do not know that they can sue those who used their material without their permission. Mishari Obaid is a victim of such an illegal and unethical act committed by a local magazine which used a photograph of his, published on the photography website Flickr, without his permission to illustrate an article in the magazine.


He filed a case against the magazine and after a year and a half-long legal battle, the court compensated him financially. “My friends told me that a certain magazine used one of my photos that I had uploaded on Flickr. They even removed the watermark from the photo. I tried to contact the magazine’s editor-in-chief but could not reach him. They refused to communicate with me and even to apologize for this unethical act which violated my intellectual right to this photo.


So I decided to sue them even if I was no so sure about winning the case, ” Obaid told the Kuwait Times. He explained that the litigation started when his friend, who had just graduated, advised him to sue the publication resting his case on a law, effective since 1999, protecting intellectual property. The First Instance Court refused the case noting the photo was not a copy of Obaid’s photo. “Maybe this unjustified verdict was built on the fact that the magazine cropped the photo and removed my watermark from it, and it was published in black and white colors in a different size. This verdict helped me at the Appeals Court, which issued a verdict in my favor.

I know that there are anomalies, and I know that not every star system is necessarily like ours, but what I am hoping to find out here is why, specifically, we don’t believe that most stars have a distinct probability of having orbiting planetary bodies.
