Crisis management involves many psychological and other skills related to interactions between conflicting sides in order to achieve peace and stability. For nonviolent methods to solve conflicts and analyze reality, see www.PsychologyForPeace.com. PsychologyForPeace analyzes famous experiments in psychology, such as Little Albert Experiment conducted by Dr. John Watson in the 1930’s.

This site also suggests that many conflicts are organized by mysterious KGB agents who use brainwashing techniques to make zombies to commit massacres, shootings, plane crashes, and other crimes.

Crisis can also occur in the area of patents and intellectual property. Here is more about that.

Patent Rules and Legislation

Patent in the U.S including the rest of the world is very critical. It was recently that Amazon.com together with other internet companies opted using patents to be awarded monopoly rights in certain aspects. Although almost everyone opposed and is still opposing the monopoly idea, such rights are fundamental in the patent system.

The U.S constitution recognizes the benefit of granting monopolies to companies. It states that; congress has the authority to promote science as well as useful arts through securing limited times to inventors granting them the exclusive right to individual writings including discoveries.

The U.S government drafted a patent act – 35 U.S. Code, which governs patent and was established by the USPTO, abbreviation for United States Patent and Trademark Office. For example, the utility patent can last for 20 years but it is until the date of issuance that it is enforceable. Whereas the plant patent are enforced to protect new plant species from asexually reproducing certain existing types. You can find out more about 35 USC Section 103 here.

To get protection in the US, applicant must submit specific patent application to the governing body, USPTO, where they will be reviewed by expert examiner who would then determine whether the application rights are granted. For your company to become patent-worthy, your creation should be

  • new
  • statutory
  • useful
  • non-obvious

The newness here means that the invention should be fresh. While statutory requirement in this case means that processes, machines, manufactured products including compositions of matter are all considered patentable. Useful invention is the functional purpose of the machine; and the not so obvious part stands for a novel purpose of particular invention, in other words, it has to be original.

Whoever invents or even discovers any new and useful process, product or machine, may obtain patent for the idea as long as the requirements mentioned above are strictly followed. Check out Intellectual Pats – how to patent an idea for more information.

Crisis management initiative will certainly follow new developments in this and other related areas.
