Proprietatea intelectuala

Proprietatea intelectuala e un titlu legal ce permite posesorului s? controleze utilizarea unor creatii ale mintii umane. Prin aceasta lege, detinatorii drepturilor de proprietate intelectuala primesc in anumite conditii drepturi exclusive asupra utilizarii unor bunuri intangibile.
In prezent, proprietatea intelectuala a devenit o frana in calea inovarii. Detinatorii acestor drepturi nu mai sunt autorii ci mega monopoluri, si doar o infima parte din veniturile generate ajunge la creatori. Eliminarea acestor monopoluri prin nerecunoasterea legala a ceea ce numim azi proprietate intelectuala ar stimula creativitatea.

Iata ce spunea acum cativa ani Bill Gates despre patente, angajatilor Microsoft in 1991, intr-o vreme cand erau doar unul din pestisorii mici si sperau sa devina mari:

“If people had understood how patents would be granted when most of today’s ideas were invented and had taken out patents, the industry would be at a complete standstill today…A future start-up with no patents of its own will be forced to pay whatever price the giants choose to impose.”

Azi, cand Microsoft are o pozitie de monopol, iata ce declara reprezentantii companiei despre acelasi subiect:

“Protection for software patents and other intellectual property is essential to maintaining the incentives that encourage and underwrite technological breakthroughs. In every industry, patents provide the legal foundation for innovation. The ensuing legal disputes may be messy, but protection is no less necessary, even so.”

In aceste zile parlamentul european are in discutie o initiativa de extindere a prevederilor in domeniul IP, legislatie care favorizeaza marile monopoluri si restrange libertatile individuale. Cum va vota europarlamentarul tau ?
