Copyright Awareness Week The goal of this event is to encourage teachers from all subject areas to teach students basic concepts about copyright during Copyright Awareness Week. We hope that through this understanding, students will be more appreciative of the efforts of creative people and the protections the law affords them. Many people are avid users of copyrighted materials such as music, film, books, magazines, art and photographs, but they have little or no understanding about how these works are protected or why our forefathers felt copyright protections should be included in our constitution. We hope that you will enjoy learning about this important subject and that you will encourage other students, teachers and parents to engage in the study of copyright during Copyright Awareness Week. We are always looking for new ideas to share with other teachers and students. Please email us and let us know what your class studied during Copyright Awareness Week.

Creative Commons Legal Code License 1. Definitions "Adaptation" means a work based upon the Work, or upon the Work and other pre-existing works, such as a translation, adaptation, derivative work, arrangement of music or other alterations of a literary or artistic work, or phonogram or performance and includes cinematographic adaptations or any other form in which the Work may be recast, transformed, or adapted including in any form recognizably derived from the original, except that a work that constitutes a Collection will not be considered an Adaptation for the purpose of this License. For the avoidance of doubt, where the Work is a musical work, performance or phonogram, the synchronization of the Work in timed-relation with a moving image ("synching") will be considered an Adaptation for the purpose of this License. 2.

Commons:Licensing For the country by country licensing rules, please see Commons:Copyright rules by territory. A quick introduction This file has annotations. Getting to Grips with the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) It’s relatively rare to get a lawyer excited. About anything. But, the introduction of the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) in April was a big enough announcement to elicit wide-eyed disbelief and giggles of excitement from me. And yes, I am a lawyer. Sample DMCA Take Down Letter It just came to my attention earlier today that someone had copied an entire article from and posted it to their own website last week. How is it possible that anyone doesn’t realize that you just cannot do that? More likely, it is known that you cannot do that but people do it figuring they won’t get caught. One of the most frequent questions I would get from my former law students was “how do you ever learn that someone is infringing”" or “how would you ever know what someone it thinking?” For those areas of law where motive matters, luckily those who are malicious also tend to be rather stupid. While they don’t necessarily need to tell you they fired you because you are African American, female or disabled, so many people revel in their own bigotry (and stupidity) and just cannot help themselves.

Legal - Trademarks Trademarks - as of May 3, 2013 Trademark and Service Mark List Registered Trademarks What is a 'protected commons'? A protected commons provides a secure platform where discussion concerning an invention or improvement can take place without the invalidation of future patent applications, or the misappropriation of information by third parties. How does a ‘protected commons’ differ from the public domain? Information that is publicly disclosed outside the context of a patent application has entered the public domain. Patent Laws Around the World This webpage provides links to patent offices around the world and tutorials on patent laws in different countries and regions. We invite you to provide us with more news and views about the laws in your country or region (e-mail or make a posting in our Forum). Many countries accept national phase patent applications based on "world patent applications" (WO publications) made under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT). The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) maintains a database of WO published international patent applications (also known as PCT applications). The Patent Lens database has all the WO publications for the life sciences. Many of these patent applications correspond to patents that are later granted in multiple countries, but many are never granted in any country.
