If you’re an artist, web designer, writer, or blogger (or pretty much anyone else working in the creative field), you’re likely to be fully aware of the benefits of copyright. Generally it protects what is termed as an “original work of authorship” – roughly translated as including books, poems, songs, web pages, and other original works. Copyright protection is considered to be automatic in that the author creates the copyright in the act of creating the work. As such, copyright does not…

First Up, What is Branding? In holticulture, people marked their cattle with a hot iron stamp to denote ownership and identity, that is, to set them apart from other similar packs of species a cattle might mix themselves in so that at the end of the day, these grazing animals can go back home to their rightful owners.

What is Human Resources average Salary?
