Intellectual Property

Basically Intellectual property is ideas, information, and knowledge. IP rights protects the works, ideas, design, or something that you have made or created. It includes copyright for your creative work like books, software, and paintings. For most businesses, IP is a tool for creativity, innovation, and even education. IP is protected in law by, such as copyright, trademarks, which enables people to earn recognition or financial benefits from what they create or invent. There are various ways of using IP to protect your creations or inventions. In previous semester we learned about the intellectual property types and it’s importance in MUV601 subjects.

There are copyrights, trademarks, licenses and all sorts of things that need to be consider to make sure that you’re nice and safe. Actually, copyright protects original works of authorship that are fixed in a tangible medium of expression whereas trademark law speaks to what branding and names have become indicative of a particular service or product. In most cases, we have to examine all the separate elements of what you are about to stream.

There are several separate elements to investigate including text, art, music, video, photographs, rights of publicity and more. While adding or streaming video over the internet you’ll need a new-media license, a video-sync license, and the rights of publicity releases. I think it’s better to check all the prospects of IP before you add any things such as, art, video, text etc to be safe.

It includes like Registered trademarks, designs, patents, plant variety rights etc. Unregistered IP with the national agency can also help to protect secret information which includes such as unregistered trade mark, trade secrets, secrecy agreements and copyright. If you are starting a business than it is important to protect your inventions or ideas. In general there are four types of intellectual property. They are as follows:

Snapshot from https://ocpatentlawyer.com/four-types-intellectual-property-protect-idea/
  1. Trade secrets: Trade secrets are IP rights on confidential information which may be sold or licensed. The unauthorized permissions or practices by others is regarded as an unfair practice and a violation of the trade secret protection. Without a confidentiality agreement you cannot use others creations. A trade secret is not registered with any government office to provide a verifiable public record of any claims to the secret. It refers to items like such as recipes that are unique and provide a business with a competitive advantages. One of the most famous and best-kept secrets is the formula for Coca-Cola which is still a mystery. Examples like : patterns, techniques, processes, formula. You can take legal action against those who misappropriate your trade secrets, but you must be able to prove the secret was obtained through illegal means.
  2. Copyright : copyright protects creative works in a tangible form that includes books, movies, music, artwork, and other kinds of creations. Copyright often lasts 50 to 70 years after the creator’s death but depends on the countries laws and regulations. Copyright mainly deals with artistic creations. It gives you exclusive rights to copy, distribute, reproduce, display and license the work. Examples: software, books, databases, graphic arts, video and sound recordings. You can sale your copyrighted assets and lease them in exchange for license fees and royalties.
  3. Trade Mark : It is another common type of IP, is registered with the trademark office as a mark that distinguishes the sources of goods or services. Trademarks are the names, symbols, patterns and phrases that differentiate your business from other industry such as a logo, slogan, sound, color etc. sometimes trademarks may overlap with copyrights.
  4. Patents : Patents deal with inventions, chemical formulas, or methodology. It grants property right on an invention, allowing the patent holder to exclude others from making, selling, or using the invention. Parents are special forms of IP registered with the USPTO, they protect inventions and functional designs for products. Examples: utility, design, and plant patents. Parent protection requires full public disclosure of the work in detail.

I think that most of the people are a bit confused about the copyleft and copyright (IP). Copyleft license grants permission to copy and reproduce IP Whereas copyright protects society’s interests in invention and creativity by providing individual incentives through copyright control. Copyleft license is mostly used in software, digital art, writings, and other creative content. Copyleft license is granted under copyright law.

While copyright prevents others from benefiting from copying or using the work without attributing the work to the owner of the copyright. It attaches automatically to original artistic works. You don’t have to register the right separately. Therefore, others can only republish or reproduce the copyright material when they have the owner’s permission.

Here are the some key points that will help you to protect your intellectual property (IP) and get your IP strategy right:

  1. First, you have to identify your IP
  2. Understanding different types of IP and advantages of each one.
  3. Keeping your idea confidential
  4. Protect your ideas or brand by registering it
  5. Beware of infringement

If you have not mention anything in your content then by default it comes under the copyright license and by the New Zealand intellectual property office also automatically protects your content in case you didn’t provide any license on your creation.

I have also include IP license in my WordPress blog.

Online Security and Privacy

Privacy and security are on everyone’s minds these days. Online privacy is also called internet privacy. It is a subset of data privacy. It is primarily concerned with protecting user information. Internet users often attempt to protect their information through the anti-virus software, strong password, reviewing site security etc. I think most of people have been face with the security and privacy terms. While signing up any social media account, or downloading any applications you need to accept the privacy statement, this is also one of the example. Risks to online privacy range from phishing scams to malware, while problems with website security may result in identifying the theft.

It is the privacy and security level of personal data published via the internet. If a password of your Gmail, Facebook, twitter account is revealed or compromised then, a victim’s identity may be stolen or used. I have found that internet privacy risks include spyware, malware, phishing. There has been found heaps of cyber violation or fraud case. These types of violations may be minimized by using preventative software applications, avoiding shopping from unreliable websites etc. It’s always better to use very strong passwords consisting of letters, numerals and special characters while setting up passwords.

Internet security encompasses browser security, the security of data through a web form, and overall authentication and protection of data sent via internet protocol. It relies on specific resources and standards for protecting data that gets sent through the internet. While browsing on any websites, you have found that a message appeared in your computer screen such as this website use cookies or you have blocked AD this is also one example of online security. Nowadays, Internet security is becoming a top priority for both businesses and governments. Good internet security protects financial details and much more.

Here are the some key points that will make you safe and help to avoid getting into trouble with online safety and privacy:

  1. Keep your personal information professional and limited
  2. Keep your privacy settings on
  3. Always try to practice safe browsing
  4. Use a secure VPN (Virtual Private Network) connection and make sure your internet connection is secure.
  5. Need to be careful while downloading any software or applications.
  6. Better to choose strong Passwords and change password on regular basis.
  7. Be careful what you have post on your social media.
  8. Keep your Antivirus program up to date.

At the end, don’t try to share your locations online because it can be a threat for you in near future. Always keep your address, phone number, family information confidential. Try to avoid the fake links because nowadays, we can see lots of fake online shopping websites links on social media such as Instagram, twitter, Facebook etc. I think you might have seen adds on social media sites about the online shopping websites links showing the branded products on sale or free. In the past few months ago i have also been in same fraud cases on social media sites. After that i don’t trust on links that are provided on social medias. I have also found lots of false advertisement on social media sites and while browsing on internet.

We can have it whether as puffed or just with the grains, depends on what you are going to cook.

How to grow your own Organic food???

Hello, I hope you guys are enjoying my blogs. As my last blog was about ‘Organic Farming’. Organic vegetable gardening is becoming more popular in this passing year because of the numerous benefits that it has. In this blogging I’m going to discuss on how to grow your own organic food or fruits on your orchards, gardens, small pots etc. If you’re not sure from where to start, then this blog will be best startup for you. It may be easier than you think to have nutritious and healthy vegetables, free from concerns of pesticide residue.

Grow Your Own Organic Food

Growing your own organic food is a great way to ensure that you’re having healthy foods for you and your family. When you grow organic veggies, you won’t be able to treat them with chemicals or herbicides, so you’ll need to be more mindful of pests. Some people think that organic gardening is a boring task, but the truth is, it is as easy as regular gardening. There are some tips that you need to know to be able to ensure that your plants will grow healthy. The plant will usually depend upon the natural ways of growing them. This will then make the plants to tastes natural, complete nutrition and even better, which is very beneficial to your body. Now if you decide on doing organic gardening, then the tips below will help you to plant your foods successfully. You won’t need to be worried about anything because these tips are not as not as complicated as they may seems to be. Remember, you can start small, even with just a single plant or two. Don’t worry if things aren’t perfect in right away at least you’ll learn something and get a lesson which will help in future ahead.

  1. Location: Before starting your organic food gardening you need choose the right site. The location for your gardening in the appropriate place makes a huge difference. That’s what will help to identify what you’ll have better for growing food in that zone and when to plant them. There are some important things that need to be consider when choosing your garden location. They are as follows:
  1. Sun: During your main growing session you need to select a site that offers as much as direct sunlight at least 6 or 8 hours. There are some crops which you can grow in case you don’t have a space available that offers much light.
  • Terrain: Is the land is in the slope area? You’ll want to align your garden bed to take as much as advantage of the sun exposure. Are there any depression where water collects? You’ll want to be thinking to fill this in with good soil so it doesn’t stay muggy a site like that will take long time to dry out in spring and could result in rotted plant roots during the growing season.
  • Wind: Are you living in a windy area or the garden site in the mercy of high winds? You need to consider trying to position your garden in a place that has a hedge, wall, or other structure nearby to reduce the effect of high winds.
  • Access to compost, water, tools: You need to make it easy on yourself and try to situate your vegetable garden bed in a convenient place so, you won’t have to drag tools from the other end of your yard and toting a watering.
  • Soil Considerations: In order to make a healthy organic vegetable garden or other foods gardening, you need to start with healthy soil. Healthy soil helps build up strong, productive plants, so make sure your veggies get lots of fresh nutrients. You’ll want to make sure your soil has plenty of humus, so the best way is to gauge the quality of your soil is to get it tested.

Chemical soil treatments can harm the beneficial bacteria, worms, and other microbes in the soil. Similarly, practice of chemical gardening can seep into your food. You can create your own compost pile by designating an area or bin at your home where waste products will decompose, or you can buy from local livestock farms that’s organically and humanely raised.

  • Plants and Seeds: To survive plant needs the right temperature. For vegetable gardening it’s better at the temperature s of 65-75 degrees for about 14 hours daily. Concern with a specialist about a suitable day or night thermostat to ensure temperatures are properly maintained in your garden. You must maintain the proper levels of humidity because lacking the proper amount of humidity in your garden will result to weak plants. There are various ways to ensure there is enough humidity in your plants, for instance growing the plants close together to create a microenvironment. Similarly, pick suitable plants that have similar needs in terms of light, moisture, drainage, soil quality and according to the garden site.

If you’re buying seedlings, look for the plants raised without chemical fertilizers and pesticides. A great place to buy is at your local farmer’s market, which may also have native plants and varieties well-suited to your area. Some of the things are best grown from the seed, including coriander, dill, sweet peas, cucumbers, and so on.

Besides, above tips there are some of important things that needs to be consider while starting your food gardening. They are as follows:

  1. Practice Crop rotation
  2. Weeding
  3. Watering plants wisely
  4. Protecting plants without pesticides
  5. Harvesting
  6. Cleaning the garden area
  7. Give plants air

During my research I found that it’s good to plant flowers in around your food garden to attract helpful insects that help to pollinate plants. You can plant the flowers like Cosmos, Cleome, black-eyed Susan, Sunflower, Marigold, Daisy, Purple coneflower.

You can even buy books and follow the page on the provided site below to start your own organic garden.

Organic Farming

Hi, I’m back again with my blogs with awesome topic “organic farming”. I believe that most of the people had an idea about the organic food, pros, cons and difference between the non-organic food and its side effects so on. I think it’s time to grow your vegetables, fruits etc by your own, may be on rooftop, gardens, small vases etc. You can enjoy fresh and quality food grown in your orchards. So, in this blogs i’m aiming to provide knowledge on organic farming and some useful information regarding organic farming in New Zealand

The organic farming is also known as biological or ecological farming) started in New Zealand in the 1940s as an alternative to using synthetic chemicals in farming and food production. The skills and techniques which had been developed in home vegetable gardens and orchards began to be applied to larger commercial enterprises. Organic farming practices in New Zealand date from 1930 but began on a commercial scale in the 1980s and is now an increasing segment of the market with some of the larger companies such as Wattie’s becoming involved. The soil & Health Association of New Zealand established in 1941, promotes organic food and farming in New Zealand. Organics Aotearoa New Zealand formed in 2005 as an umbrella organisation to represent all aspects of organics in New Zealand. Willing Workers on Organic Farms
(WWOOF), a network of organisations around the world placing volunteers on organic farms, have operated in New Zealand since 1974.

Rachel Carson’s 1962 book “silent spring” warned against the effects of pesticides on the environment, adding to the impetus for organic farming in New Zealand and elsewhere. People were concerned about the toxic agricultural chemicals such as DDT had become widespread and persistent in the environment, in food, and in humans.

What is Organic Farming????

Organic farming is a production method that involves much more than choosing not to use pesticides or fertilisers and other similar products. The principal goal of organic production is to develop enterprises that are sustainable and harmonious with the environment in what could be described as a holistic system. According to United states Department of Agriculture (USDA) guidelines state that farmers use agricultural methods that preserve the environment and avoid synthetic farming and agricultural materials. Almost all organic farming systems rely on alternative farming methods, such as crop rotation, mechanical cultivation, animal manures, green manure, and integrated pest management to maintain healthy soil, grow healthy plants, and control pests and weeds.

In New Zealand organic farming is still very small comparing to some of the countries, it covers just 1.1% of total farmland versus Australia (2.9%), Austria (19%) and Sweden (15.7%). The number of New Zealanders who agree they buy organic foods sometimes, all or most of the time went up from 59% in 2011, to 72% in 2014. 78% of New Zealanders believe it’s important for NZ to grow and market food that’s organic and GM- free. 86% of New Zealanders believe organic products are good for them and their families, and 71% believe it’s good for the world. More than half of consumers are prepared to pay more for food and other products that are certified organic.

Are there any downsides of organic food???

While doing my research on my topic i found something interesting so, i think it’s good to share through blog post. We all know the benefits of the organic food but you may know that everything has some negative sides too. Given all the said advantages and benefits of an organic lifestyle, surely, it can make you healthy.

Are there really disadvantages of organic foods?

A lot of people choose organic food because they believe that it tastes better compared to non-organic produce. Likewise, they thinks that it may be a lot safer and more nutritional to consume. At the same time, it will be a lot better for the environment and as well as animals. However, people are having misunderstanding regarding the consumption of organic food as a better alternative for consumers.

The increase of sales of organic food each year has been thought of as a response to increasing public concerns in the use of pesticides. This is also thought of as a result to the increasing awareness of the production of food and the distance being traveled. The decision on whether it is essential for people can be easily done without prior knowledge regarding the benefits of eating organic. Here are a few notable ones.

Cons of Organic Food

1. Easily Goes Bad
Compared to non-organic food, organic produce has the possibility of going off a lot quicker. This is since it does not contain any form of preservatives. Likewise, it does not undergo any irradiation procedures.

2. More Expensive
Another fact of organic products is it cost more compare to non-organic food. Perhaps, the cost of producing such products is the main reason why organic food is not the favorite choice of many consumers.

3. Minimal Chemicals Allowed
A lot of people believe that the production of organic food will not allow the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. However, organic food production still allows a minimal amount of chemicals in order to develop a reasonable amount of produce.

4. No Health Benefits
It is often a popular belief that organic food has a lot of health benefits compared to non-organic products. However, there are no consensual reports that link organic food to health benefits. Hence, there is no reason believing that it will provide a healthier alternative to non-organic food.

5. No Nutritional Proof
Research made by the British and Swedish food agencies has found that organic food has not been considered safer compared to food produced via conventional means. For this reason, it is safe to say that organic food is just as nutritional as non-organic products.

6. Even Low-Level Pesticides Can be Harmful
According to the National Academy of Sciences, exposure to low-level pesticides can be harmful to children and foetuses because of their vulnerable immune systems. Likewise, it can be a disadvantage to pregnant women as it will put added strain particularly on their taxed organs.

7. Pesticide Contamination
The reduction of pesticides from the plant might end up going into your drinking water. If pesticides are present in tap water, it can lead to unsafe levels in a matter of weeks, according to the Environmental Working Group.

8. High Bacterial Levels
The levels of bacteria have been found in the production of organic foods. For this reason, the consumption of organic foods has been linked to the risk of ingesting e-coli bacteria into the digestive system of a person. Thus, it will be harmful for children as well as pregnant women as they have vulnerable immune systems.

And don’t forget – just because the package says “organic”, doesn’t mean it’s healthy. Carefully read food labels and do not buy organic food that is high in salt, sugar, or calories. No matter what you choose, eat your fruits and veggies!!!!

The reason behind choosing this organic food as topic because from my childhood i was familiar with organic farming and love cooking foods. My family used to do agriculture and still they are doing farming. So, i have learned a lot things from my family and i think i should share my knowledge to others. We do farming of vegetables, crops, wheat, fruits. In these blogs i’m going to discuss about organic food, farming, recipes, its pros and cons etc.

I believe that when we support the organic industry it helps the environment by reducing the use of synthetic chemicals. Chemicals used in conventional food production often leach back into the surrounding environment. By using more natural practices, organic production protects wildlife, promotes biodiversity and helps to maintain and improve native ecosystems.

The organic process is environmentally conscious. It promotes greater soil fertility by rotating crops and using natural materials, such as compost, manure and cover crops. These practices help to control erosion and manage soil nutrients. A healthy soil also has the ability to absorb more carbon from the air. In order for animal products to be certified organic, the producing animals must meet a standard of animal welfare that ensures livestock living conditions accommodate the health and natural behavior of the animals. This includes being feed a natural diet with no growth hormones, GMOs or antibiotics. The animals also cannot be cloned.

What makes me Unique?

That are plenty of things that makes us unique. I think, i really am very special. i fell good about myself. It’s true that there is no one else like me in the entire world. There never was another me before, and there will never be another me again. I don’t know how to express myself perfectly but there are some points that consider me as unique:

  1. Good communicator and emotional person
  2. Food lover and passionate to cook food
  3. love to travel and music lover
  4. Eager to explore new things
  5. want to be updated with fashion
  6. I have a lot of energy and enthusiasm and vitality. I’m exciting and i really enjoy being me.
  7. seeking out to learn new opportunities
  8. not afraid of failure. in fact, i believe it’s an essential part of the experimental process that gets you to success.

I am interested in many things and appreciate all the blessings i have, and things that i learn, and all the things i will learn today and tomorrow and forever – just as long as i am. We should never give up too early. Helping each others and share our love and knowledge to others. I think that’s what life is all about and what it means.

What others think of me?

I cannot explain exactly what people think of me and how they see me but i know whoever are closes to me like my friends, families and relatives knows me better person as a loving, caring, humble and kind. Most of the people sees me as a silent person but in real life i’m opposite of it. Firstly it takes me time to be open myself. My best friends says “i’m a talkative person” which seems kind of weird sometimes.

MY VISION

I used to think it was a silly waste of time to think about a vision for my life. Who does that? But then, as I started learning how to change my life and my habits, I realized lots of importance and it’s need in the life of people. In this blogs, my vision is to educate others about organic food, farming and preparing to make healthy recipes. To share my ideas, knowledge, skills to people and i believe that i will get something in return and will able to achieve knowledgeable things throughout my blogging.

My Goal and how i’ll achieve it? Who are my Audience?

My goal is to chasing my dreams and achieve them. Throughout the entire time of my blogging aim is to educate others. I think that till now i had educate something to my audience about the organic food which is my personal brand. We are the human who are living in this planet so, we need to take care of it. Like i said “we need to share educations and help people” which is the one way to achieve my aims.
