Unfortunate increase of lawyers being used in tech

Unfortunate increase of lawyers being used in tech

 

Since the dot-com bubble in the late 90s, the laws around the various patents, copyrights, and regulations that technology companies need to be aware of are becoming increasingly complicated to understand. 

 

Not only is this causing major concerns and legal problems for many tech companies; some have even started exploiting the situation for their own benefit. 

Who owns what?

These days, if one entrepreneur from America has an idea that they think is totally original, some “random dude” in Chile might already have thought of and patented it. The entrepreneur from America might very well have a much better plan for executing the idea and making the world a better place with it, but that’s not of any relevance as long as the person in Chile owns the patent for it. 

 

A lot of business owners are starting to get confused about who owns what. An imaginary anecdote might be helpful for explaining how this causes problems: 

 

Per Arne is a man with an idea. He lives in the city of Stavanger, Norway, and he dreams of starting his own company. He believes that he has invented a revolutionary new technology for cutting slices of brunost (“brown cheese”). Excitedly, he goes about making the first prototype – and it works splendidly! No longer does he get way too thick pieces of brunost that make him nauseous; nor do big lumps of the slices stick to the cutting tool after he has used it. The process now flows quite smoothly, just like with a hot knife cutting through butter. 

 

There is one problem, though. Per Arne has heard from friends that he should consult a lawyer to find out whether anyone else has thought of this invention before and patented it. So he tries Googling for an advokat Stavanger (this means “lawyer” in Stavanger, and it’s probably what Per Arne in this case would search for) who can help him get clear on whether anyone owns any copyrights for this brunost cutting tool. This way, he won’t run into difficulties later down the line, spending lots of time resources to develop an idea that’s not originally his own. 

High tech scarecrows

Per Arne finds a lawyer who can help him, but the news are not good. The lawyer tells him that there might exist a company that has copyrights to a similar cutting tool like the one he has just invented. The lawyer also tells him that this is a big international company that he’s been having trouble with in the past.

 

The issue is that this international company uses lawyers to scare off competitors. Whenever a small company or entrepreneur tries to take on the challenge of gaining a patent on something that is similar to what this big company has “secured,” they usually don’t have the resources to win. An apt name for the strategy these big companies use is “high tech scarecrows.” 

 

Unfortunately, it seems that more and more tech giants are using lawyers to scare competitors from entering the market. Per Arne’s brunost cutting dream is thereby crushed, and so are the dreams of many other budding entrepreneurs. 

How Technology Has Changed Education

Technology

Technology has always been the most important resource in shaping industries and helping them achieve their goals and objectives. As a result, the process has been the same for education since it has managed to form up a new system with technology. This particular system has changed things for good and brought about differences that go a long way. So to help you understand these changes, here’s how technology has changed education.

Different Styles of Learning

If the same old system is being implemented from time to time, students are going to lose attention and look towards other aspects to keep them busy. As a result, education requires different teaching styles in order to get things going for the better. With technology, education has achieved that change, and it is something worth exploring. Teachers can now use visuals, audio, and a lot more to help students understand a particular concept. The age of advanced tech has certainly changed education to a huge extent and brought about things that can keep the future safe and secure.

A Collaborative Experience

The new system of learning is no longer a one-man show. It is more or less a collaborative approach that goes ahead to help everyone understand the concept with ease. Thanks to that, the process has been modernized, and the benefits that it provides are out in the open for everyone to see. Exploring these aspects and looking towards making it all count can certainly help your child find new paths to learning and take a collaborative approach while moving forward. Education is not the same as before.

A Better Relationship

The learning relationship between a teacher and a student is another important aspect that can certainly make a difference and shine new light on things. And one of the best ways to improve that relationship is with technology, as it makes the process an effortless one. Yes, that’s right. The new modernized learning experience widens the gap between a teacher and a student by helping them achieve the things they need the most. Due to that, we can look forward to better relationships between a teacher and a student.

An Engaging Classroom

The process of creating an engaging classroom gets completed when you have technology to take things forward. Since an engaging classroom is more productive, we need to ensure that everything begins to head in the right direction. By doing so, things will begin to change for good and sum up to make a difference when it matters the most. Thanks to all that, technology has certainly changed education, and it is a particular change that has been bringing in a lot of good for the future generation.
