Safety and security has been a growing concern recently throughout the world. The main reason being is accidents, i.e. fire and explosions and criminal activities, such as act of terrorism and piracy. Land is not the only place for such threat, seas and oceans are getting the same as well. In past years, different ways and/or approaches have been proposed to prevent a recurrence of such threats.
Individuals, private and government sectors are looking into it seriously for the purpose of security protection and defence of seas and oceans from accidents and intruders. Quite a number of patent applications have been filed in recent years on the same. Two of them have drawn my attention – one is from oil and gas sector and another from ship transport sector.

Books, music, pictures, videos and other creative works have special intangible rights attached to them, known as “copyright”. These rights are owned by the creators of the work – authors, producers, photographers, musicians, songwriters, artists and such – who can choose to do anything they wish with their exclusive rights.
The copyright owners have the right to prevent others from reproducing their work (or a substantial part) in any material form. The translation, adaptation and transformation of their work can also be prevented, so owners of copyright essentially have broad rights to their pieces of work, which can be exploited in many profitable ways.

“I’m a big believer in that if you focus on good skin care, you won’t really need a lot of make-up” Demi Moore once said. It is not surprising that the global value sales in the beauty industry is expected to exceed US$131 billion in 2019, with skin care as the biggest category adding some US$20.1 billion to its value over 2014- 2019*.
Thus, when one skincare company felt that their market share is being encroached upon, it is only right to do what is necessary – to squeeze out that pimple! This is what happened in Singapore when an Italian entity, KIKO S.P.A (“Opponent”) initiated an opposition action against a Korean company, Dooyeon Corp. (“Applicant”).

Genetic diseases and disorders which are caused by faulty genes in cells are debilitating and worsen the quality of life of a patient. But what if you could return the faulty genes to normalcy as easily as fixing your profile picture with Photoshop? Or even create a designer baby with desired features? A gene-editing tool known as clustered regularly-interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) opened up the possibility of achieving such tasks that seemed to be improbable in the past.

Ever had that momentary flash of genius where you had an idea so bright and radiant that it lit up the space above the latrine you were sitting on and you couldn’t help but exclaim “Aha!”, to the horror of the occupants of nearby cubicles?
What if that idea was related to something that would change the way things work or provide a solution to the world’s problems? What next?
