Logis Show - Intellectual Property / Fields / Law=Wybo_Wiersma_4 The most conspicuous field of power is that of law. Intellectual Property is created by law, and IP could have been, and can be different, or even not exist at all, all depending on the law. The important question for this field is who's interests will be law, that of authors, publishers, the public, or society. Something that is easily forgotten is that the law is both the subject of the disputes about IP, and - by referring to the illegality of certain acts - used as a means in the conflicts about it. Law is considered to be established democratically in the West, but lobbying and misinformation also play their part there. Especially internationally, force and the bundling of treaties, such as in the case of the WTOs TRIPs which included IP clauses, are also important ways to shape the law.

Easy WordPress and Google Calendar Integration Google Calendar was meant not only to make your life easier with a free, easily-accessible online calendar. You can also use Google Calendar to collaborate and share your events and online activities with other people. But for some, it’s a bit complicated to have to ask others to view your Google Calendar from their own accounts. Logis Show - Intellectual Property / Fields / Norms=Wybo_Wiersma The last, but not least important field, is that of norms. These are the norms, views and ideas that make up the public opinion. It is how people think about IP, how they act towards it, and also how they view others' behaviour towards it. Most effective laws depend on, and correspond to, widely held norms, rather than on constant policing. As historians know, norms differ with time and place, and are often determined by historic factors.
