The definition of Organizational Learning

Hi everyone. I want to continue on some what of the same topic I was discussing in my last post. The main point I was trying to get by was that there is so much innovation in technology that relatively new products are becoming out dated just because better and more efficient products are being developed.

Taxation of selling goodwill

Let’s look at the benefits associated with allocating value to personal goodwill in an acquisition of a closely held C corporation.  This is a sale transaction involving closely held business.  If personal goodwill is treated as property that can be sold in conjunction with a company’s assets or stock, it can produce a favorable tax result for both the buyer and the seller. Buyers typically prefer to structure transactions as asset acquisitions because it provides a tax basis step-up.

The dispute between Tiffany and Costco first came to light in November 2012 when a customer alerted Tiffany to the sale of what was promoted on in-store signs as “Tiffany” diamond engagement rings at a Costco store in Huntington Beach, California. Tiffany immediately launched an investigation, and later learned that for many years, and without Tiffany’s knowledge, Costco had apparently been selling different styles of rings that it has falsely identified on in-store signage as “Tiffany.” The rings are not in fact Tiffany rings, nor are they manufactured by, approved by, licensed…

According to a release by Thomson Reuters, U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff dismissed an action brought by lawyers arguing that Thomson Reuters and Lexis Nexis violated copyright by copying legal briefs and selling access to those documents on their research platforms (White v.
