  • SO firstly what were really talking about here is intellectual property and how it can be protected. Intellectual property is a broad term referring to intangible property. Common types of intellectual property include, industrial design rights and trade secrets in some jurisdictions. They way in which they are protected is through things like copywright, moral rights, patents, designs and trademarks. SO an example of i.p laws would be that you cannot use the creation unless you pay the owner of the creation a fee.
  • According to Aigrain In the 1930s and the mid 1950s, the scientific revolution was created, through the technical invention of the computer, which gave birth to I.T or information technology. This led to the birth of technology revolutionized genetics or biotechnology. Yet immense bodies of knowledge were created in the public domain like algorithms, programming and genetic information. This was era is described as the the information revolution by theorists.

To be sure, this is a good idea, and others notice it. They naturally imitate Galt-Magnon, and they start building their own cabins. </li></ul><ul><li>But the first man to invent a house, according to IP advocates, would have a right to prevent others from building houses on their own land, with their own logs, or to charge them a fee if they do build houses.” </li></ul>
