Before the emergence of e-culture, intellectual property rights i.e. trade mark in the product is acquired through continuous promotion of the particular brand name by means of advertising through media, like the press, television, radio broadcast and other means. Now information about a particular product or a reputed brand name is easily accessible through the powerful search engines available on the internet. This factor has also opened a Pandora’s Box on the aspect of intellectual rights in domain names and their conflicts vis-à-vis the registered trade mark.
A domain name is the address of a business entity on the internet or cyberspace or a reference for having access to the business credentials of an entity. The conflict situation arises typically when in addition to registered trade mark approaches the registering authority for registration domain name on the internet in order to guide the potential customers to the site where more details about its product or services can be provided.
In all probability, the domain name chosen by such company has to be its registered trade mark/brand name or identical one. For example, Microsoft Inc would seek domain name such as Microsoft.com.
For registration of domain name a person can apply to Network solutions Inc of USA following the rules of Domain name registering policy of the registering authority India and cannot be allowed if there is infringement Trade mark and passing off as per Trade mark Act.
But where the Cyber squatter is situated in different country and contends that the fact of Trade mark having been registered in India was not known to him and Indian court have no jurisdiction over it.
In all probability, it would be situation of give and take that is the transfer of domain name takes place simultaneously with payment of a hefty compensation by the holder of a trade mark to the holder of the deceptive domain name. However where the holder of the trade mark instead of succumbing to the pressure of cyber squatter takes the matter to the administrative body that is WIPO for rectification of the domain name, his case is likely to be thrown out for want of evidence to prove bad faith.
- Purchase when put-call ratio is 1 or less than 1 sell when it is 2 or more than 2
- Purchase when PE ratio is 10 and dividend yield is 3%
- Sell when PE ratio is 20 and dividend yield is 1.5%—- when PE ratio increases dividend yield decreases.
- Which stocks to buy:
- The market price should be less than intrinsic value.
- It should comprise 10-15 stocks.
- Identify five sectors that are going to gain the most from the economic development in the future.
- Look for two-three value stocks from each sector.
- How to find a value stock:
- Price to book value——-Book value= Total tangible asset minus total liabilities—– if the market price is less than book value, it is worth buying. That means it should be less than one.
- Price—earning ratio (P/E ratio) = market price of a stock divided by earning per share (EPS) —- it reflects the premium that an investor is willing to pay for the current profitability of the company. The future profit growth rate is subject to an individual investor’s perception about the company, the industry to which it belongs and the impact of economic growth on the company/ industry. In a developing market like ours, a PEG multiple of 1.2 is considered a fair value and anything above that signifies that stock is over valued. However a low P/B value and PEG value makes question the company’s sound financial health.
- Debt-equity ratio-It is total Debt divided by shareholders equity including reserves. It should be less than one. A high debt-equity ratio means larger part of profit goes in servicing the debt.
- Current ratio= Current assets divided by current liabilities. Companies having current ratio more than one are well capitalized to meet the short term obligations. However a very high current ratio means idle assets that reflects the inefficiency of the management.
- Quick ratio=Current assets –inventories/ current liabilities. The quick ratio denotes how dependent the company is on its existing inventories and liquid assets. A higher quick ratio compared with other peer group companies implies the company is less dependent on its inventories to meet short term liabilities and hence better managed than other companies.
- Working capital=current assets –current liabilities. The higher the number the better is the position of the company.
Coming after a long time, I was blocked with my usual business. I hope you do remember me, well today I am going to show you, how we did the animation for the Bengali based game Lalkamal Nilkamal.
- Mahavir the animated movie
The story of a super hero the ultimate powerful Kalki . He was born on the planet earth to destroy the evil power. As he took birth, so as Ravana who has got end-less power. He is a rich man with political connection.
Before Kali yuga , seven sadhu did a “Maha- Nirvana” Yagya so that a ultimate power can be born who wll protect the “Kali” to enter in to earth. But they have failed and one of the Sadhu became the right hand of Kali. The power born without a real body, he can watch things but can’t took part into anything ….
Kalki took birth in 2124 where people do prefer test-tube baby , but the mother of Kalki – Avatar of Lord Vishnu, took the chance to carry him in her own womb. When the baby is about to born , she used to have some dreams , that demon’s will take her son. They are trying to kill him…
The story took a turn when Gadura came to rescue little baby and took him along with him. the small kid was trained in a Temple, the Main Sadhu of the temple used to train him on Morals and the teen Girl of Sadhu used to train the kid on weapon and science.
Kalki, Shiva,, Vishnu, Durga, Ganesha, Kartik, Yamraj, Gadura, Blood Seed (Rakta Beej), Nova, Taraka Rakhshashi, Kumbhakarna, Indra, Maya, Kali, Klesh etc
I always do think of creating Indian super hero’s who will be inspired by our own culture but in a modified form for global acceptance, as I see many global comics company takes our Indian characters and does the modification and put them as a character. Hence that thought came in my mind to make such type of series of hero’s and make Indian superhero. When I used to think like this ? Well I was in class 5th or 6th standard then . I was making all these characters by my own thought and started making hand made comics and I had a dream to make them alive using some kind of technology. Then I came in touch in cartoons in late 1992 where in DD channel I saw one day how a animated series look like . So I decided to make my created comics in the form of a sequence of movement . Now I know those are called animatics and storyboard . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f76wtylyEFk please ref this to understand my passion in batter way.
As I had only Rs. 49/- as my working capital I couldn’t been able to make an animated movie on my own when I started back in 1998. So now is the right time when I can invest on the making of some really good superhero’s . Not sure how the market will accept this, but I am passionate enough to make it and finish it.
What kind of research have you undertaken for the movie?
A lot , I went though the real look n feel of each and every GOD that we do have and been through the concept how Koli Yoga came in earth, it was Yudhisthira who removed Koli from his cage and Krishna wanted to stop Yudhisthira but Koli break free , there are lot of facts regarding this .. we tried to make it as easy as possible for the audience .
we are the maker of Zero we were one of the best culture in the world, as a passionate patriot, I would like to add more and more cultural theme based on India and it’s successors and I need moral support.
All powerful in their classrooms, masters of the destiny of the children entrusted to them, as some parents believe? Or, are they simply performing at the service of an institution which couldn’t run without them ?
They are caught in a system of constraints and checks similar to those which they impose on their pupils. Some of them accept this system and even sometimes uphold it to the extent that they may set standards in their classes even more onerous than those which the institute wished to SET. Others want to find new opportunities for change.
What margin of freedom is there for these teachers ?
In any event, acceptance by teachers of the educational system, its practices and justifications, is fairly widespread and clearly represents an efficient cog in the machine.
Never having left the educational world (going straight from school to college or university and then back to school as teachers), many of them have absorbed the school’s customs and values: the importance of individual performance, for example, the overdevelopment of the intellect, being cut off from external reality.
Teachers undeniably influence children directly by their personality, their attitudes, relationship with others and the way in which they interpret the institute’s instructions. This influence may be exerted without their knowledge.
Creating FPS game
Hi, I would like to show you how to create an FPS game for android .The game always do gave some objective , hence this game do have the following simple objective :
Save the money van from the goons.
There is different type of enemy who will be coming from the right-hand side and the player need to shot them with a basic gun. For each level he will get points and using those points he can purchase guns and assets and use them in the next level.
To start with I am sharing the game graphics to make things easy. The game is not a side scrolling game but is a background scrolling where in we take care of the situation.For your ref; here is the background:
It’s created in such a way that game players will feel it’s coming in continuous way.
So now we need the money van, the attack will be on the van by the cars and bikes.
For that we need to create sprite sheet for the van:
Now we need cars and bikes that will be attacking the money van. So here you are the sprite sheet for the bike and the car. There are other cars too but I am taking into consideration of two enemies for now, to make it easy for people.
Now we need the gun and the hand for the same.Now the main point is he needs to reload the gun; each gun has his own power and number of bullets.
Then we need the bullets, the concept is within the game people are coming while firing to the van and the user need to save the van while killing the other enemy.
The main question is , we have the car, bike, gun, bullet but what will happen when someone kills an enemy ? Certainly now we need a blast for the same.
Now we need a cross hair to target the enemy.
We need other things for the UI of the game like buttons .So the total look and feel for the UI is like the following:
Here is the look and feel for the game play where user can shoot enemy with moving the cross hair using touch screen.
We are done with the creation of the graphics ; I am going to share some of the source code for the same, so that you can do it by yourself.
All you need to do it use andengine and use the ode and graphics very wisely, I am taking into consideration that you know the basic android app development process.
