 why do we have a copyright law

why do we have a copyright law

Copyright is the guardian of the most precious skill: imagination. Imagination, said George Bernard Shaw, is the beginning of creation. The ability to imagine is what sparks off ideas or feelings, which might then be transformed into a painting, a novel, a new invention or a piece of music. Copyright protects the expression of an idea; it encourages people to 'create'. In our daily life, from the newspaper we pick up in the morning to a recipe for a new dish, nearly everything was created by someone. The fact that people can own the expression of their ideas means they can potentially earn a living by developing them. For example if an individual comes up with a brilliant new painting and someone else simply photographs it and starts mass-producing prints, then the painter is much less

 why do we drive on the left in england

why do we drive on the left in england

Have you ever wondered why the British drive on the left? There is an historical reason for this; itвs all to do with keeping your sword hand free! In the Middle Ages you never knew who you were going to meet when travelling. Most people are right-handed, so if a stranger passed by on the right of you, your right hand would be free to use your sword if required. (Similarly, staircases spiral in a clockwise direction going upwards, so the defending soldiers would be able to stab down around the twist but those attacking (going up the stairs) would not. ) Indeed the вkeep to the leftв rule goes back even further in time; archaeologists have discovered evidence suggesting that the Romans drove carts and wagons on the left, and it is known that Roman soldiers always marched on the left. This

 why do travel agents charge for credit cards

why do travel agents charge for credit cards

I am wondering. When I buy a ticket through a travel agency, does the travel agency bill me first and then pay the airline directly with their own funds? A family member has agreed to lend me money to get back home and their last name is different than mine since they are on my mother s side of the family. They are planning to use their credit card however Air France has strict rules. If the family members book s through a travel agency, will I have any trouble when checking in at the airport? ***Can I purchase an e-ticket for someone else? *** Due to increased credit card fraud problems, Air France does not accept third party payments (the credit card holder not being the passenger or part of the group traveling together). Exception: We allow payments for family members with the same

 why do school uniforms reduce violence in schools

why do school uniforms reduce violence in schools

Introducing Uniforms at School to Reduce Violence. Introducing uniforms to reduce violence will not work. Sure it may allow people to be slightly more confident, and not afraid because everyone is dressed the same but, that does not reduce the chance someone will have the thoughts to harm someone outside of school or inside because of who they are. If the cause of violence is because of the style or choice of clothing then when the children are allowed to face life on their own, and because they couldn't deal with the fact someone dressed a certain way, the violence will rise outside of school, and into their adult if they can't handle the differences. Uniforms can't prevent crime no matter who is wearing them. This is one of those things that Americans love to bring up without any basis

 why do my nipples hurt after breastfeeding

why do my nipples hurt after breastfeeding

Any woman can experience burning or pain in her breasts and nipples following breastfeeding -- especially if she is inexperienced or just start out breastfeeding. Many conditions, infections and complications can trigger symptoms. However, with a bit of extra care, you can treat and avoid burning and painful breasts after feeding your child. Pain and burning after breastfeeding often stem from improper positioning while you are feeding your baby. Sometimes your baby eagerly latches on to just your nipple rather than the areola and nipple. In addition, pain and burning occurs if your baby sucks too hard while nursing or bites you at the end of the feeding. Engorgement, where the breasts become full and hard with milk, also triggers pain and burning. This discomfort also can be caused by

If you attend a Super Bowl party on Sunday, youБll probably hear at least one casual football viewer ask, БHow do they get that yellow first-down line on the field? Б While БmagicБ is a fine answer in its own right, the real explanation is a bit more technologically intense. LetБs have a look at the background and mechanics behind every football fanБs shining beacon: the yellow first-down line. According to Allen St. JohnБs 2009 book The Billion Dollar Game: Behind the Scenes of the Greatest Day in American Sport - Super Bowl Sunday, the first-down line actually emerged from the ashes of one of sports broadcastingБs bigger debacles: the FoxTrax system for hockey, which was designed by a company called Sportvision. Бwhich hockey fans no doubt remember as the much-maligned БtechnopuckБ

 why do seeds need light to germinate

why do seeds need light to germinate

When seeds are developing, the seeds go through several stages, the last being dehydration to become an inactive seed. The inactive seed is what can be bought at the store in packets. For seeds to be active again, the proper conditions such as warmth, water, and oxygen are needed. These conditions lead to the seed germinating. Germination comes from the Latin root germinare, which means to sprout, and germen, meaning seed. Lets determine if sunlight on the soil is necessary for germination. To make germination trays take one egg carton and cut off the top half and place it under the bottom half. Take the second egg carton and cut off the top half, placing it under the third carton. The trays under the cartons will catch excess water. Use a pencil to punch a hole in each top layer

 why do temperatures in the stratosphere increase upward

why do temperatures in the stratosphere increase upward

METEOROLOGIST JEFF HABY The troposphere is the layer of the atmosphere closest to the earth's surface where the weather takes place. The warmest temperatures in the troposphere are near the surface with the coldest temperatures being at the top of the troposphere. Although the sun light comes from the top to the bottom of the atmosphere, the troposphere is primarily heated from the bottom. This is because the surface is much better at absorbing a wide range of solar radiation as compared to the air. Much of the sunlight filters down through the air and to the surface. Certain gases do absorb radiation and warm the air such as carbon dioxide and ozone. However, a great amount of solar radiation makes it to the surface. The surface is warmed by the sun and then this energy is distributed
