“Imagination is more important than knowledge” – Albert Einstein (100th Anniversary in 2005)


In the last issue we discussed two major Intellectual Property Rights namely copyrights and patents. Intellectual Property is based on the power of imagination and its protection is an incentive to creativity and they can be protected with trade marks and domain names as well. A trademark is a registered word, phrase, symbol, design or a combination of these, which identifies the source of goods or services. Examples of famous trademarks include the names 'Coke', ‘Zain’ and perfume ‘Amouage’.
