Fine Brothers spark fury with YouTube trademark attempt - BBC News
[ protecting an entertainment format - old school TV. YT goes TV. ] 2015 applied to trademark terms "Kids React", "Adults React" & "Celebrities React", as well as the word "react" itself, which could be used to form new variations of the format. [...] a licensing scheme called React World, which they said would let other video-makers use the "react" title and assets such as their graphics and music. But the plan was negatively received by the YouTube community because so many people already make similar reaction-based videos online, using the word "react" in the title. "They had a bunch of trademarks already and nobody minded," said Jon, a YouTuber from Many A True Nerd. "But the moment they got to just the word 'react', it was just too commonly used. "People aren't sure whether they will fall foul of the trademark. "As creators, we have sympathy that you want to protect your content from being stolen - but in this case it's too far," he told the BBC. & backing-off

What is Angela Ahrendts doing at Apple? - Fortune
“She motivates people. She inspires people. And she is the sort of person who wants to see things succeed as a team. It’s a rare quality.” [...] Ahrendts believes the key to the company’s future is not just marvelous products, but also engaging and energizing its nearly 100,000 employees, 60% of whom now work in retail division. “If you’re going to employ people anyway,” she says, “why not make them the differentiator? They’re not a commodity.” Now that there are 459 Apple stores in 15 countries, many people have their first Apple experience inside a store—a first impression that could forever tarnish the brand if it’s not good. “Burberry was about building a relationship,” she says. “But it was always about selling an amazing product that you would have forever. Apple is just a deeper relationship with a much broader constituency. Because it’s everybody.” // apple positioned itself just above everyone else it competes w [having a margin!], but not too far up to be douchy, off-setting

SAP: Ehemaliger Mitarbeiter erhebt schwere Vorwürfe gegen SAP - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Hinter den Kulissen tobt um die Entwicklungsgeschichte des Erfolgsprodukts indes seit Jahren ein erbittert und mit harten Bandagen geführter Streit, der mittlerweile auch Gerichte und Behörden in Deutschland und den USA beschäftigt. Ausgerechnet ein Mitarbeiter der internen SAP-Revision, der mit einer Untersuchung ("Audit") über den Entwicklungsprozess von Hana befasst war, wirft dem Unternehmen vor, sich bei der Entwicklung eigener Produkte wie Hana am geistigen Eigentum von Wettbewerbern wie Oracle, IBM und Teradata bedient zu haben. Der bislang unbekannte Vorgang geht aus internen SAP-Dokumenten sowie Gerichtsunterlagen hervor, [...] Für SAP sind die Vorwürfe gefährlich, denn das Unternehmen ist einschlägig vorbelastet. In den vergangenen Jahren musste es Wettbewerbern wie Oracle Chart zeigen bereits hunderte Millionen Dollar an Schadensersatz überweisen. [...] [ $25m fuer sich zu fordern war dumm. Super naive. Schweigegeld oder was? ]

BBC TV chief warns of US threat after big-money Amazon deals | Media | The Guardian
>> iPlayer needs to become an international subscription business. and leverage the BBC brand (sought after and trusted, it's the last public crown jewl that actually can compete in a global market! Channel 4 or ITV can't. ) // “Their model is built on having global rights and we have got to respect that. They are a very smart, impressive bunch of people,” Cohen said. “The key thing we look at more and more is the impact of global competition rather than just in the UK where very big companies can distribute their content around the world. That is a very big challenge.”

Online Stars Feel Cheated As YouTube, Facebook Battle Over Videos : All Tech Considered : NPR
The video got 1 million views in one day on Douglass' YouTube channel. And then, he says, "a very popular Facebook group also downloaded this video from my YouTube site and re-uploaded it on their Facebook page where they have millions of followers and in the first 24 hours that video on Facebook got 20 million views." Douglass says those 20 million views would have meant about $20,000 on YouTube. Instead, he made nothing. [...] There is a safe harbor protecting websites under copyright law.

Disney’s $4 Billion Steal — 500ish Words — Medium
Since Iger took over, Disney has made a number of key acquisitions. The three biggest are arguably the three most important deals any company has done over that span. In 2006, Disney bought Pixar for $7.4 billion. In 2009, Disney bought Marvel for $4.3 billion. And in 2012, Disney bought Lucasfilm for $4 billion. [...] Based on nothing other than internet reaction, pent-up demand, and the fact that this new Star Wars cannot possibly be as bad as the last three, I’m going to go not-so-far out on a limb and predict that The Force Awakens makes over $2 billion worldwide at the box office. Yes, that would put it third all time behind the James Cameron tentpoles Titanic and Avatar, and ahead of both Avengers films. But I can just see it happening.

A Small-Business Guide to Intellectual Property -
The two most precious resources for any small-business owner are time and money. That’s why when the subject of intellectual property comes up, many owners run in the other direction. They see images of expensive lawyers and use that as an excuse to ignore the topic, reasoning that it is a problem for big companies to worry about.
