|EDITORIAL: Innovation: A Golden Opportunity?
The debate over whether Universities should claim the research done by its students as their own is once again brewing.
Prof. Vivek Wadhwa takes us through the legal and ethics jargon that has been an issue of debate with both sides, the university as well as the inventor both claiming victory.
The fact of the matter is that U.S. Supreme Court ruling should have been a binding decision, and the the ruling goes in favor of the student (inventor), giving all rights of the product or invention to him/her instead of the institution.
That is the way it should be, after all, universities are not business houses, it does not add up to being socially responsible, if a university is claiming the results of a students hard work.
True, that a lot of funding is involved in a research and that universities provide that support to the student. The funding is usually in the form of a grant for which the university has to show results. But, that does not mean that the university has control over the invention itself when it comes to licensing or product development contracts.
A status quo approach would be in the interest of the university. The university could call the invention as one of their own, but when it comes to monetizing it, let the inventor do the call.
That way, the social responsibility factor is also attained, and the university can still pitch for more grants. Moreover, it is also seen that students who have made it to this level, usually give back to the university, way more in the form of donations than it would ever recieve from licensing fees.
The political alienation of the middle class in India has been a touchy subject that most politicians refrain from touching.
The fact of the matter is that the system in India is so bizarre that the new middle class finds itself aloof of the whole curry, as if it was an unwelcome ingredient in the mix.
The movement by Anna Hazare has brought a new light to all of this as pointed by Patrick French, who offers a new look at the relationship shared between the new middle class and the political system of India.
The recent uprising over corruption issues is just one example of how badly the middle class in the country wants its voice to be heard by the politicos.
The movement by Anna Hazare shunned the evil politicians in favor of the new middle class, and was welcomed by industrailists, movie stars and the common man alike.
This is a revelation of the current crisis that is evidently hampering the growth of a nation and at the same time offering a safe haven to corrupt politicians.
M.F. Husian is the most cherished painter of his time in India, and as an Indian icon, the world over.
His life and work has earned him the respect of thousands of art lovers the world over. However, it does come at a cost.
Husain was criticized in India, banned from residing in the country, and sent on an exile, yet the Indian government claims that he was a welcome figure in the Indian art world.
It is as if you can live in the country when a particular political party is in power because you do not offend their morals, while you have to move out of the country when a different political party comes in power with a different agenda of policies that might not be compatible to what you believe in.
Priyanka Bhardwaj walks us through his life, his work and his challenges through an intimate remembrance of the master artist’s thoughts and creativity.
A very happy 4th of July to our readers from the staff at Siliconeer.
