Chapter 7 – Intellectual property law

What is being negotiated?

Let's imagine for a moment a world without intellectual property. Have you thought about how everything would work without intellectual property area? Can you imagine a world without books, music, architectural scenes of different design, communication mechanisms, your computer, television, air conditioning? Everything you see today, was once an idea, and today is a reality. The future is launching some new streams and we are here to tackle them. It's not that simple or easy, but when each of us individually points to one of the challenges, then things change. Today, we have robots, cutting-edge software that aims to make things easier for people, cars, blogs, vlogs, social networks where people share their thoughts. Is it OK to, in this era of the internet take someone's work and present it as your own? Is it okay to "alienate" someone's idea and take it is your own? The task is to establish the rules for the intellectual property field that must be followed. More specifically, intellectual property is the right of "ownership" over individual creations. Although intangible in physical terms, it has all the characteristics of a property. It can be bought, sold, licensed, exchanged, donated, inherited like any other property, and Montenegro is working to clearly define the boundaries of permitted and conscientious conducting in this area.
