Businessmen as Messiahs 21.1.2018 DNA: India
The jurisprudence used by Supreme Court in dealing with Padmaavat, a completely commercial venture is an interesting subject to explore; as protection under concept of freedom of expression should typically be reserved for expressions with implied intent of greater good and not for individuals using the expression to make money. The application of this novel jurisprudence by SC is obviously rooted in changing social perception towards making money so it needs debate. But, the specific issue now is too emotive to try reasoning with, so I would transcend it by a level and look at a new phenomenon, i.e. emergence of businessmen messiahs enjoying popularity as do-gooders in public perception. As we turn blind towards the simple fact that every business venture shall have a selfish intent, flamboyant businessmen are becoming social heroes. And the one name that shines like a quasar in the stellar list containing the likes of Zuckerbergs and Bransons is, Elon Musk. For the educated youth across the world, Elon ...

Italy probes Apple, Samsung over cuts to product life 19.1.2018 General News
Italy's antitrust authority today said it had launched a probe into tech giants Apple and Samsung for allegedly shortening the lives of their products so clients would buy newer models. The watchdog accused the companies of a "commercial policy aimed at exploiting the shortcomings of some (tech) components to reduce the performance of their products over time and persuade consumers to purchase new versions". It said it was also looking into complaints the pair failed to provide information on what consequences software updates pushed by the companies would have on products. The Italian probe follows an investigation launched this month into Apple in France over suspected "planned obsolescence" in some of its iPhone models. The US company was forced to admit in December that it intentionally slowed down older models of its iPhones over time, sparking concerns it was unfairly nudging consumers to upgrade. At the time, Apple denied it intentionally shortened the life on any

'Expect India's rank to improve in global IP index' 16.1.2018 General News
India's rank may improve in the international intellectual property index this year with the introduction of national IPR policy adding to its systemic efficiency, a top official at the Global Innovation Policy Center said today. India languished near the bottom in the index last year, ranking 43rd out of 45 global economies. The sixth edition of the report brought out by the US Chamber of Commerce's Global Innovation Policy Center (GIPC) will be released on February 8. This year, the index will map the performance of 50 countries against 40 indicators.
