Definition of copyrighted software

The IIPA, the umbrella lobby group that represents the major movie, music, and entertainment software lobby groups, released its recommendations for the U.S. piracy watch list last week.  Those that thought passing Bill C-11 - the Canadian copyright reform bill that contained some of the most restrictive digital lock rules in the world - would satisfy U.S. groups will be disappointed.

Explanation of knowledge management

Larry Prusak speaking at the 2010 APQC KM Conference Knowledge Management (KM) is a phrase that confounds many. Many companies and organizations that attempt to “manage their knowledge” fail miserably. The problem, it seems, is not so much with the concept as it is the terminology. Simply put, knowledge management is a systematic approach to helping people share knowledge with each other. My friends at Shell sum it up with the  succinct phrase — “Ask, Learn, Share*.” Knowledge management helps people connect with the knowledge and the expertise they need. In that spirit of sharing…

In this article, I will explain the numerous reasons for a significant rally in MGT s share price during 2013, as well as the risks associated…
