What is Copyright Protection?

La gestion des droits de l'image Une fiche pratique sur le droit de l'image a déjà été publiée. Voici quelques précisions quant à la gestion des diverses autorisations pour publier une image. Pour simplifier l'exposé, nous prendrons le cas de photographies. Mais les solutions sont transposables pour tout type d'image (dessin, peinture, sculpture, vidéo…) Toute prise de photo est libre dès l'instant qu'elle s'effectue dans un lieu public. C'est donc l'exploitation de la photographie qui suppose des autorisations, au nom d'un certain nombre de droits que nous passons en revue ici. Des droits d'auteur On retrouve les questions de cessions de droits d'auteur, à plusieurs niveaux. Le photographe auteur ; questions d'intégrité de l'œuvre Il convient de bien prendre garde au droit moral de l'auteur, notamment le droit au respect de son œuvre. Le photographe, agent juridique Il est évident que le photographe est le mieux placé pour contacter les divers autres titulaires de droits mis en œuvre sur sa photographie. À retenir

64 Things Every Geek Should Know - The term ‘geek’, once used to label a circus freak, has morphed in meaning over the years. What was once an unusual profession transferred into a word indicating social awkwardness. As time has gone on, the word has yet again morphed to indicate a new type of individual: someone who is obsessive over one (or more) particular subjects, whether it be science, photography, electronics, computers, media, or any other field. A geek is one who isn’t satisfied knowing only the surface facts, but instead has a visceral desire to learn everything possible about a particular subject. A techie geek is usually one who knows a little about everything, and is thus the person family and friends turn to whenever they have a question. If you’re that type of person and are looking for a few extra skills to pick up, or if you’re a newbie aiming to get a handhold on the honor that is geekhood, read on to find out what skills you need to know. 1.

Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us July 22, 2011 by Akira Hirai Daniel Pink’s book, Drive, explores some misconceptions about what drives human behaviors. For example, one commonly held belief is that if you provide larger monetary incentives, people will perform better. This turns out to be true for simple, mechanical tasks, but false when applied to complex tasks that require conceptual reasoning. For the latter, better outcomes are achieved by providing autonomy, providing people with the opportunity to master the subject matter, and creating a sense of purpose. This brilliantly animated video summarizes some of Dan’s thinking. Other articles by Akira Hirai. Filed under: Economics, Strategy About Cayenne Consulting.

Made (again) in the USA: The return of American manufacturing workers assembling an engine at a Volkswagen factory in Tennessee. FORTUNE – Until the end of World War II, America's economy was almost completely self-sufficient. Everything it consumed it also produced. The big shift away from manufacturing came as the U.S. sought to speed the recoveries of war-ravaged Europe and Asia. Trade barriers fell significantly and soon American companies were sending emissaries abroad, looking to do business cheaper by expanding their operations overseas. The golden era of manufacturing would never come back. But in the after glow of the Great Recession, something surprising is happening: U.S. manufacturing appears to be on the cusp of an awakening – if not a full rebirth. The reasons why have more to do with problems overseas than strength at home: • Overseas workers are getting more expensive. • Shipping costs keep increasing. • Global supply chains have shown weak links. And then there's the booming emerging economies to consider.

100 Ways to Simplify Your Life and Mind After Armen’s list of 100 , my own 100 Ways to be a better leader and now several readers creating their own lists of 100 topics, I thought I would continue this trend and build one more on 100 ways simplify your life and mind. I’ve written a couple articles before on this topic and I’ve kept a few items from those articles on my list here, but most of this is new and it is really a useful way to find things to start doing. As with any of these 100 lists, obviously you can’t do all of these things (I certainly don’t) but you can pick some items on the list and start with them to simplify things in your life. I’d love for you to comment and add your own items or why not create your own list of 100 items, link back to these if they have inspired you and challenge your own readers to do the same and keep these lists going!

Can You Trademark a Color? Could Pablo Picasso sue Claude Monet for using his signature melancholy blue color? That question was raised this week by a federal judge in New York. The suit before the judge was not actually brought by Picasso. But it did involve a trademark in a color. As his many fans know, Christian Louboutin is an artist of the foot. His shoes are widely revered (see songstress Jennifer Lopez’s ode, “Louboutins”) and not cheap: close to four figures in many cases, and sometimes more. The judge in this case did not doubt that Louboutin’s red soles fulfilled the fundamental purpose of trademark, which is to designate the source of a good. But the general understanding in American law is that colors can only be trademarked if they serve—and only serve– to identify the source of a product. To think this through, the judge analogized to a hypothetical dispute between Monet and Picasso over a particular shade of blue. The YSL-Louboutin dispute has implications for other aesthetic issues.

Manufacturing Profits Set New Record In 2011 The Census Bureau reported Monday on fourth quarter financial results for the U.S. manufacturing sector, with the following highlights: 1. After-tax profits for U.S. manufacturing corporations were just short of $600 billion in 2011, setting a new annual record. The $598.3 billion of profits for American manufacturers last year represented an increase of more than 25% from the $477.7 billion in profits the previous year, and follow a 67% gain in 2010. In contrast, the after-tax profits for all U.S. corporations are on track to increase by less than 5% for 2011 based on data currently available through the third quarter of last year, following a 19% increase in 2010. 2. 3. The record profitability of U.S. manufacturing corporations last year is just one of several economic indicators that put America's industrial sector directly at the forefront of the economic recovery. 1.

9 Gmail Plugins to Revive Your Productivity This post originally appeared on the American Express OPEN Forum, where Mashable regularly contributes articles about leveraging social media and technology in small business. For years, Gmail has dominated as the standard — even to the extent that the web savvy crowd tends to think less of people who use a more archaic email service, a phenomenon known as domain discrimination. The rationalization goes, why would you keep using a limited email interface when there's a better product out there? Along those same lines, your Gmail might be outdated if you haven't tried some of these handy plugins. 1. iMessage and BBM both brought us assurance that others had read (or at least opened) our texts, but what about that hilarious GIF you emailed to your crush? For marketers or others who routinely run MailChimp campaigns, these types of analytics are the norm, and they've come to expect details on who opens their emails, where they are and on what device.
