This week, Stan Muller launches the Crash Course Intellectual Property mini-series. So, what is intellectual property, and why are we teaching it? Well, intellectual property is about ideas and their ownership, and it's basically about the rights of creators to make money from their work. Intellectual property is so pervasive in today's world, we thought you ought to know a little bit about it. We're going to discuss the three major elements of IP: Copyright, Patents, and Trademarks.

3:00 balance the need to incentivise sharing of information and incentivise production of inventions(?) These two things are not really in opposition. The first doesn't need an incentive. The second is based on the idea that nobody invents things without a profit in mind. This is a specious argument, made by lawyers (who never have ideas) in support of their business. Companies need to start paying inventors without involving lawyers (whose only function is to create conflict).
Intelectual Property.. its kind of seems like a made up think.. to create a think tank. Like do you know how many catergories or Vocabulary words i could make up or put together, to create think tanks.
I choose to just know people how there intrests and abilities. ( a base ball field as many positions, a basketball team does too, different sizes and different abilities, all put together) its make a intellegence community or team. Thats what was needed. The cool thing about it is, it put everybody else who "bought into the think tank deal, like actually paid for it contracted it" Its put them to work for us, Americans. I seen the FBI logo, on a Intectual property website or contract for example, I heard thepresident talk about "Intellectual Property" for example. It means they bought into the "deal" they got sold.
Heres the stradedgy for hacker or somebody taking over inteclectual property.
I say "cool" , you believe in intelectual property, Im gonna make you stick to that.. until your realize it sucks and holding you back, its causing you problems. Put them in there own think tank, then make them hate the think tank.. Boom i conquered intelectual property and the people who made it, along with the people they sold it to, along with the contracts and work they have to do to try to keep up, they have to do work, to keep up to speed.
That is why is so important be honest, get your abilities out there,in writing in media, so you can expose the con artists... you get a following from it, its a good thing. A natural progression.
Whats the difference between Intelectual Property and a Entuerpuenuer ... nothing really its the exact same word meaning, so why resell entuerpunuer influence, as "intelectual property"..
Trump Fires in California the ones burning up the cities and state, Is that that "Intellectual Property"? if i see it on T.V.? a little flame map of the fires that say "Trump FIre" we can make intelectual property believers or professionals "think" about it, put it in there tank. Trump Fire.. Alls we had to do is say it.. write it or type it.. The people he contracted to use Intecetecual Property stuff is going to be used by us, they will make it a "thing" for us for free Presidential Intellectual Property TGB the way i mean it..
They can fight to make it a "thing" if they want, maybe take it through congress a couple times.
Just be "American" its comes with all the good stuff... American intellegence is pretty awesome too. TGB the way i mean it. You guys called A.I. for awhile, i started developing it, American Intellegence TGB the way i mean it
Life +70 is ridiculous. Period. It's all about publishing houses, and has nothing to do with protecting author's rights. Even if the artist is alive, 10-20, max 50 years should be the limitation before things go into Public domain.
Also, copyright and digital media is completely unfair to developing countries, because 1)access to media is limited (Netflix, Vimeo, Spotify, Amazon, for example are usually technically region-blocked unless you use a VPN; still worse, Paypal is unavailable to creators) 2)If developing countries have access (Itunes for example), the prices are usually HIGHER than they are in the US, in countries where wages are as much as 10 or 100 times lower. 3)The regional DVD system is completely completely outdated in a digital, internet world, with many companies just not even bothering to release their work in in certain regions. 4)Unstable internet means that like, if I want to show this video in my class, I have to download it, and every time that Youtube updates their security, I have find a new way to download, just to share a simple video with my class.
All of this in addition to the fact that access to digital media, like access to SMS services or cell phone coverage, is usually hyper-inflated in price to begin with. While I understand that an Avengers movie costs hundreds of millions of dollars to make, a digital, DRM-free copy of a movie shouldn't cost more than $10, an album, shouldn't cost more than $5, a book, probably no more than $7 or $20 in the case of a textbook maybe. I guess I'm okay with DRM for movies limiting me to one copy of something, but it should still be in a format I can move and use with my own player. Generally though, DRM is easily broken.
Anyway, yes, intellectual property laws are important...however, the way the laws are now don't protect creators as much as they do media corporations. The Public domain as a concept has been destroyed by Life + 70, and these laws are more about greed and consolidating capital than they are about rewarding creative energies and creators who can't afford lawyers.

I saw someone make a comment about employers who work for Disney. They said that their contract specifies that they own all intellectual property and they also referenced perpetuity. Are you familiar with that type of contract?
Our definitions of what intellectual property is are different which matters. A individual can copyright there own intellectual & physical property data. As for my property without payment is stealing which means that any internet provider or company providing a service on the internet or phone that I use have legal terms they have to o bid by regarding what is know as intellectual & physical property data. Email, twitter, face book, apps, games, you name it.
I usually enjoy these clips. This one began by implying that anyone saying, that copyrights and patents are inherently wrong and/or limiting towards society as a whole, are stupid potheads. It wasn't particularly pleasant for me and frankly I expected more from you.
The death of author plus 70 years length for copyright is just ridiculous. Make it five years from publication or something sensible like that. The author would still have protection during the initial surge of demand on release.
Sweet but you can't remove enforcement from the equation. If they can't enforce a law they don't have a law, that's called a revolution, and they should just shut up and take it, because atleast we're not chopping the heads of all the rich people this time around... atleast we haven't yet.
Jokes aside there's a rampant wealth disparity in the world right now, and as long as copyright laws is protecting the profits of those who have at the expense of those who does not have there's something wrong with them.
I'm not sure if this is supposed to be a justification, an explanation, or a definition. The Laws require so many exceptions because they're bad laws. Trying to dress it up as "...trying to increase our stock of knowledge" seems rather disingenuous, it's incentivising creating laws and enforcing them.
That being said, I'm all for giving recognition to the creators; but even that doesn't necessarily increase our knowledge.
Because patents and copyrights are different types of IP designed to cover different types of thing? You can't do "limited experimental use" of a piece of art the same way you can an invention that serves a purpose, unless you think "try before you buy" counts as the same (it doesn't).
I'm extremely fascinated by the implications of information technology. It makes it possible to share, dublicate, store etc. information basically for free. How amazing is that! If I write an extremely smart and usefull program for instance, everything I have to do is to say "free to use for everything forever" ONCE and it will serve every person forever! It's like a little update for every person in existence, "user X added widget Y to your toolset, use it whenever you need it!"
I was initially unsure about this gentleman ability to hold my interest after seeing him act out the me-from-the-past act, but at 20 seconds I decided I subconsciously and then consciously came to the conclusion that I indeed did enjoy investing my time into him. Well done sir. You are, as you have maybe unknowingly been a valuable member of our collective species.
In a shop: - Give me a roll of toilet paper. - What color would you like? - White please, I will color it myself… - Hi, John! I have heard that you died three times already! - Hmm, but you’re no better – you haven’t come to any of my funerals. Could you fax over a copy? No, I can‘t fax because of where I live. Where do you live? The 21st century. Get a life - I’ve heard they’re cheap now on eBay Thanks to Blaine Zernechel.
April fool’s day If there are hopeless fools, then there should also be fools, which give hope.
As experience shows, its easier to fool somebody on a regular day, rather than on April 1st.
Question: can a joke, played on April 1st, become a present for the New Year? Answer: yes, as theres exactly 9 months period.
