  • Male, Thx! Btw, I haven't signed the cocntart of my book yet.公園仔, 多謝關心. 我們私下不時以千年蟲比喻世貿, 猜它到時會反高潮. 我想, 世貿未必是泡沬,她有她的議題, 全球也關注會否一切傾不成, 似乎國際間現在已不斷吹風, 談判會破裂. [url=]xboupkrp[/url] [link=]rzmoox[/link]

  • " certification of trrmedaak' means a mark capable of distinguishing the goods or services in connection with which it is used in the course of trade which are certified by the proprietor of the mark in respect of origin, material, mode of manufacture of goods or performance of services, quality, accuracy or other characteristics from goods or services not so certified . TM' marking is to be made on the pictures used in worshipping! This is to indicate the source of manufacture or trade origin of the goods or services and hence to protect the goodwill' of the undertaking. Will it not be inappropriate for the Attukal Bhagawathy temple or the Tirupati temple to call itself a business undertaking and proprietors of a trade? Is it not dishonourable to claim that the Temple Trust is trading in the picture of the deity as a monopoly and that the economic good will" protected by the trrmedaak is for letting an object and a place of worship as a service ? Will it not lead to unending law suits between temples, and between temples and commercial undertakings? Will it not be disgraceful? All this is for what gain? I trust the Trust will see the deep and far-reaching implications and retrace the steps to its rightful place to deserve divine grace with a charitable attitude. Without such protection' the temple had already got the recognition for drawing the largest assembly of women devotees from the Guinness Book of World Records. This year it was reported that 25 lakh women assembled on the Ponkala day of March 10. The Tirupati temple also remains the richest without such protection.TRIPS tripping our balance. The cause of this unbelievable fall in our values can be traced to the Trade Related Intellectual Property Rights regime (TRIPS) imposed by the World Trade Organization (WTO). That, in turn, was the result of the aggressive posture taken by developed countries in the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) negotiations in the early 1990's to retain their advantages of earlier start. That posture was objected to because it would be used for holding the handicap and extending the exploitation of the developing countries. Patents, trrmedaaks and other intellectual properties sought to be protected by exclusive provisions of TRIPS were pointed out as unfair to the underdogs. They would be benefiting only the parasitic rent-seekers' and not the creators. In my article, India and the Dunkel Proposals and presentation at the Kerala Science Congress in Thrissur in 1992, the unfair exploitation implied was exposed. The objection was based on my experience as an inventor with 15 international patents and understanding from participation in an international patent committee. What was feared has become real. It has also led to conflicts and expensive litigation by countries like India. It led to desperation to others that cannot afford to fight.
