Selfies by Celebes crested macaques One of the monkey selfies at issue in the dispute The monkey selfie copyright dispute is a series of disputes about the copyright status of selfies taken by Celebes crested macaques using equipment belonging to the British nature photographer David Slater.

Monkey selfie copyright dispute

The disputes involve Wikimedia Commons and the blog Techdirt, which have hosted the images following their publication in newspapers in July 2011 over Slater's objections that he holds the copyright, and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), who have argued that the macaque should be assigned the copyright. Slater has argued that he has a valid copyright claim, as he engineered the situation that resulted in the pictures by travelling to Indonesia, befriending a group of wild macaques, and setting up his camera equipment in such a way that a "selfie" picture might come about.

About CC Licenses

Intellectual property: Copyright, trademarks and patents

Intellectual property rights fall principally into four main areas; copyright, trademarks, design rights and patents. Copyright Copyright applies to work that is recorded in some way; rights exist in items such as literary, artistic, musical and dramatic work as well as films, sound recordings and typographical arrangements. It gives the author specific rights in relation to the work, prohibits unauthorised actions, and allows the author to take legal action against instances of infringement or plagiarism. Please see our pages: Copyright law, the Berne Convention, or UK copyright law for more details of the protection. Trademarks. What is Intellectual Property? Intellectual property (IP) refers to creations of the mind, such as inventions; literary and artistic works; designs; and symbols, names and images used in commerce.

What is Intellectual Property?

IP is protected in law by, for example, patents, copyright and trademarks, which enable people to earn recognition or financial benefit from what they invent or create.

Intellectual Property 101: What It Is and Why I Should Protect It. Startups and early stage companies have many things to focus on and worry about, and the protection of intellectual property (IP) is likely not on the top of the list, if it’s on the list at all.

Intellectual Property 101: What It Is and Why I Should Protect It

Why? Because a business startup is focused on sales and revenue, cash flow and profits, and quite frankly sometimes just surviving the initial launch and startup of their new business. The marketplace is more competitive than ever, with consumers having so many choices among all the emerging technologies and businesses and the points of differentiation becoming more subtle. Why Should Startups Care About Intellectual Property? Sales…marketing…revenue…getting more customers…growing my company – these are all at the top of the mind of startups and early stage companies and rightfully so, because without revenue, there will be no company. However, often times "intellectual property" is among the last things that an early stage company thinks about…and it shouldn't be.

What is Intellectual Property? Intellectual property, or "IP", is often misunderstood and confused – to some, everything seems to be protected by a patent, when it may actually be a trademark that applies to the situation or vice versa. The four primary categories of IP – trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, and patents – are often mistaken for one another. Intellectual Property 101: Patents and Trademarks. Ideas are a difficult thing to protect because they are so easily imitated or copied. We don't yet live in the world of Star Trek where you can just have a replicator instantly make you an exact duplicate of physical things like a cup of coffee or some exotic alien delicacy, but we can easily duplicate the ideas of others, such as copying a piece of written material, using a similar brand name, or creating a product in imitation of someone else's product.

Products take time to develop and bring to market. Once a product has been developed, it can be imitated in a fraction of the time. It would be easy for other companies to create competitive products or services within a very short period of time. For example, consider the recent "employee discount" advertising campaigns from the major auto manufacturers. On the other hand, consider the innovative Segway transportation device. Intellectual Property 101: What Your Business Needs To Know About Trademark Law. Co-author Teri Karobonik contributed to this post* When you think of a “trademark” you may think of a logo (Apple’s apple logo) or a product or service name (Forbes).

You may even assume that trademarks are only a concern for internationally famous brands like fashion companies (Prada) and fast food (Pizza Hut). In reality, trademark protection extends further than logos and can cover everything from sounds (the 20th Century Fox Fanfare before the opening movie credits), to colors (the “green” on a John Deere tractor), to the design of a taco shop. Although many of the common examples you hear about are large corporate brands, understanding trademark protection is just as important for startups, independent creators, and small business. Contract - Express & Implied Terms (GCSE) However, sometimes a term which has not been mentioned by either party will nonetheless be ‘included’ in the contract, often because the contract doesn’t make commercial sense without that term.

Terms like this are called implied terms, and there are two main types: Terms implied by statute: the Sale of Goods Act 1979. The key provisions are: Section 12: the person selling the goods has to have the legal right to sell them. Employment contract terms. What is the difference between implied and express terms?
