1. Collectivism and indicidualism, semocracy and totalitarianism, rule of law and rule of man . what do these concepts say about the IPRs of software and the legitimacy of its protection?
Software technology was facing problem of digital piracy. Software piracy is the illegal distribution and copying of software for personal and business use. In USA software is automatically protected by federal copyright law from the moment of its creation. US copyright act grants the copyright owner “the exclusive right to protect the copyrighted work” and to distribute the copies of it. According to US federal law copyright infringement is illegal and punishable. But worldwide software piracy is very high and the penalty is very less for it. Software maker, organization, companies have to bare billions of dollars losses every year.
Collectivism holds that the needs of society take precedence over the needs of the individual. Collectivism encourages state intervention to improve the welfare of the group at the expense of the individual
Democracy champions the power of the many ober the few a democratic government protects personal and political tights
Totalitarianism champins the power of the few over the many . the government exercises control over many to all aspects of life, the indvidual is subordinated to the state, and opposing political and cultural expression is suppressed.

2. Can the software industry control software piracy without government help? Why would its dislike greater government regulation?

Yes, the software industries do have the ability to control software piracy without relying on government. Companies like Adobe and Symantec took initiative to create awareness to public about the illegal copying of software’s. The other companies such as Microsoft also took initiative to control software piracy. They hired former federal and police…...

Try and Error

...Traditionally in this sector, Krishna Ghati, Balnoi and Poonch has been always volatile. One must also remember that the Pakistan army is no longer a professional and monolithic body. The Islamism of the Zia-ul Haq days has percolated down to its junior ranks and individuals are quite capable of acting at the behest of Mohammad Saeed of the Lashkar-e-Tayiba [ Images ]. It must be clearly understood that many jihadis now on the US terror list were creations of the Americans themselves. From Osama bin Laden [ Images ] to Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, the current American 'baddies', were all much admired mujahideen heroes. In April 2012, the United States announced a bounty of $10 million on Saeed for his alleged role in the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks [ Images ]. But the same Saeed was sent to Saudi Arabia in 1980s by Punjab [ Images ] University for higher studies where he met Saudi sheikhs. They inspired him to join his colleague, Professor Zafar Iqbal, in taking an active role supporting the mujahideen in Afghanistan. Saeed is an admirer of the West. While Pakistan's political elite were 'living like kings and princes in palatial government houses,' Saeed wrote in a petition, Britain's prime minister lived in a 'four-bedroom flat.' 'When the sun never set on the British Empire,' he wrote, 'the chief executive of that great country lived in the same house in a small street. That is truly Islamic, that is like following the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet.' Saeed's venom......

Unethical Research Practices

...but very little on unethical drug promotion (Parmar, Jalees, 2004). The purpose of this paper is to inform the reader of how unethical research practices can lead to death from both past and present case studies. Present Rizwan Rahim Ahmed and Dr. Ahmed Saeed conducted a case study concerning ethical and unethical pharmaceutical marketing practices in Karachi City, Pakistan (Ahmed, Saeed, 2012). The results were very alarming to the world. The study indicated that doctors, hospital administrators, and pharmacies were receiving kickbacks from the pharmaceutical industry for prescribing their drugs to patients. The case study concluded that participants had different levels of blame. For example, the study shows that four out of five doctors were receiving money from these companies. Still today the government of Pakistan turns a blind eye to this type of unethical behavior. Research found that doctors were prescribing unnecessary drugs to patients regardless of the medical outcome. The more medicine they prescribe, the more money they would receive from the pharmaceutical companies. The study concluded that this type of unethical practice is common throughout the world but severe with regard to developing nations (Ahmed, Saeed, 2012). Developing nations require money to expand and provide for their people. This makes them highly susceptible to this type of unethical behavior on the part this industry. Pharmaceutical companies not only entice medical professionals but also......

Basic Semantics

...contrast clearly to the notion of sense, that is “the semantic links between elements within the vocabulary system” (Saeed, 2009 p. 2). Outline the main features of Prototype Theory and show how it differs from the classical view of concepts as necessary and sufficient conditions. Give examples to support your answer It has been said that the average adult can actively use anywhere from twelve thousand to twenty thousand word. Shakespeare himself used around thirty thousand in his writings. It is not unreasonable therefore to ask: how is it exactly that one organizes all this information? How are these words and concepts represented mentally in our minds? One school of thought is the concept of categorization, a concept that can be seen dating back over two thousand years through writing, of Aristotle. The purpose of this essay is to explore the various theories. As Taylor (1995) points out, the classical view of categorization was first theorized by Aristotle and is based upon the belief that, “things are categorized together on the basis of what they have in common (Lakoff, 1987, p. 5). Developing from the classical view of categorization was the necessary and sufficient conditions approach. “This theory views concepts as lists of bits of knowledge: the necessary and sufficient conditions for something to be an example of that concept” (Saeed, 2009, p. 35). That is to say all concepts have features that necessarily and sufficiently categorize......

Representation of Race in Media

...ideologies about ethnic minorities and immigrants. These ideologies construct how we see our own identities as well as see what is to be Black, Asian, Native American, and South American as mentioned earlier. All in all, those in power are manipulating us. Post 9/11 has seen a dramatic increase in newspaper coverage about Muslims and Islam. Misrepresentations of Muslims are compounded by the medias attention focused on Muslim fundamentalists/extremists (Saeed, 2007, p. 456). These discourses have highlighted the “otherness” of Islam/Muslims from mainstream society. It is obvious and easily noticeable by any individual that the media is guilty of presenting negative images of Muslims and Islam. This reinforces Anti-Muslim racism in our society (Saeed, 2007, p. 454). Western media has depicted Islam and Muslim as opposite of the Western society. It is believed that Islam has created a problem for the Western universal project of globalization by its refusal to be over taken by western ideals and networks of culture and politics (Saeed, 2007, p. 456). This refusal for them to comply with Western ideals have resulted in them being seen as a threat. This falls into my earlier reference of Harold Innis who stated that the bias of communication is due to interests engaged in the struggle to control wealth, force, and knowledge (Comor, 2001, p. 280). The owners of large units of production hold enormous amounts of power over us, and Islam’s refusal to comply with westernization......

The Inheritance of Loss by Kiran Desai

...that the next generation anticipates it to be bequeathed with pride and honor. Desai's Inheritance of Loss truly reflects her adeptness for irony. True, the pathetic state of loss can be inherited and may be passed on to future generations, but how can anyone anticipate such a dreadful fate?  The story is delivered in such a compelling way that the reader understands the process of loss of cultural identity being passed on from the elders to the young. Portrayal of irony through characters Irony overcomes the whole novel through its characters. Characters belong to india but it is ironical that they dislike the culture of their roots and admire the culture of west. Characters in the novel are Jemubhai Patel, Panna Lal, Gyan, Biju, Saeed-Saeed, Sai Mistry, Haresh-Harry and the two sisters, Lolita and Nonita. They effectively depict varying kinds and levels of discontent at their own personhoods. It is a mix of pathetic illusions of being part of a culture that does not acknowledge them, hypocritical snubbing of one's own culture and journeying into knowing one's real self and true roots. Jemubhai Patel is an Anglicised Gujarati judge is disgusted with human beings, after bitter racial experiences during the Cambridge days but ironically throughout his latter life he identified himself with British because of his desire to mimic the English colonial identity. Upon contact with a foreign culture, he ironically grew stranger to himself than he was to those around him:......

The Overview of Capm

...Ayub, & Saeed, 2013). The study contributes to show these empirically tests are beta based for CAPM and downside beta based for DCAPM. This study can advocate breakthrough and the replacement of variances by downside risk as a suitable risk measure in a single asset-pricing model. Downside risk based single asset pricing model will help in pricing securities more appropriately and anticipating portfolio risk for investors. Downside risk framework will also aid in determining the nature of investment. It will determine market behavior in a better way as compared to other single asset pricing models. Moreover, representing cost of capital for capital budgeting is necessary to finance those assets. DCAPM can also contribute in this area leading to a suitable model of financing for all other theories (Tahir, Abbas, Sargana, Ayub, & Saeed, 2013). First, the study discusses conceptual and empirical problems related to these models. As DCAPM has similar assumptions as of CAPM, so those study sticks to basic underlying methodology of testing CAPM. This study inspects intercept, risk-return relationship, nonlinearities and effect of residuals for both CAPM and DCAPM. CAPM and DCAPM hold similar ground pertaining to nonlinearities and effect of cash flows. The results of the researchers also reveal that risk-return relationship holds up; however, DCAPM comes out to be strong contender compared to CAPM for risk-return relationship (Tahir, Abbas, Sargana, Ayub, & Saeed,......
