A charitable trust is an irrevocable trust established for charitable purposes, and is a more specific term than " charitable organization ". [ edit ] India In India , trusts set up for the social causes and approved by the Income Tax Department , get not only exemption from payment of tax but also the donors to such trusts can deduct the amount of donation to the trust from their taxable income. [ 1 ] The legal framework in India recognizes activities including "relief of the poor, education, medical relief, and the advancement of any other object of general public utility" as charitable purposes. [ 2 ] Companies formed under Section 25 of the Companies Act, 1956 for promoting charity also receive benefits under law including exemption from various procedural provisions of the Companies Act, either fully or in part, and are also entitled to such other exemptions that the Central Government may accord through its orders.

In common law legal systems, a trust is a relationship whereby property (real or personal, tangible or intangible) is held by one party for the benefit of another. A trust conventionally arises when property is transferred by one party to be held by another party for the benefit of a third party, although it is also possible for a legal owner to create a trust of property without transferring it to anyone else, simply by declaring that the property will henceforth be held for the benefit of the beneficiary. A trust is created by a settlor , who transfers some or all of his property to a trustee , who holds that trust property (also called the principal or corpus) for the benefit of the beneficiaries . The settlor is also called the trustor, grantor, donor, creator, or founder.
A board of directors is a body of elected or appointed members who jointly oversee the activities of a company or organization . Other names include board of governors , board of managers , board of regents , board of trustees , and board of visitors . It is often simply referred to as "the board". A board's activities are determined by the powers, duties, and responsibilities delegated to it or conferred on it by an authority outside itself. These matters are typically detailed in the organization's bylaws .
Trustee (or the holding of a Trusteeship ) is a legal term which, in its broadest sense, can refer to any person who holds property, authority, or a position of trust or responsibility for the benefit of another. [ 1 ] Although the strictest sense of the term is the holder of property on behalf of a beneficiary , [ 1 ] the more expansive sense encompasses persons who serve, for example, on the Board of Trustees for an institution that operates for the benefit of the general public. A trust can be set up either to benefit particular persons, or for any charitable purposes (but not generally for non-charitable purposes ): typical examples are a will trust for the testator 's children and family, a pension trust (to confer benefits on employees and their families), and a charitable trust. In all cases, the trustee may be a person or company , whether or not they are a prospective beneficiary. [ edit ] General duties of trustees Chart of a trust

Abstract: This invention discloses new krill oil compositions characterized by having high amounts of phospholipids, astaxanthin esters and/or omega-3 contents. The krill oils are obtained from krill meal using supercritical fluid extraction in a two stage process. Stage 1 removes the neutral lipid by extracting with neat supercritical CO 2 or CO 2 plus approximately 5% of a co-solvent.
A software patent has been defined by the Foundation for a Free Information Infrastructure (FFII) as being a " patent on any performance of a computer realised by means of a computer program ". [ 1 ] Most countries place some limits on the patenting of invention involving software, but there is no legal definition of a software patent. For example, U.S. patent law excludes "abstract ideas", and this has been used to refuse some patents involving software. In Europe, "computer programs as such" are excluded from patentability and European Patent Office policy is consequently that a program for a computer is not patentable if it does not have the potential to cause a "further technical effect" beyond the inherent technical interactions between hardware and software.
