ADHESION TO USD-SYSTEM’S SYMBOLTYPE CODE OF ETHICS

 

  •                                    Article 17 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

 

"Everyone has the right to own property alone as well as in association with others. No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his property."

 

  •                                    Article 27 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

 

"Everyone has the right freely to participate in the cultural life of the community, to enjoy the arts and to share in scientific advancement and its benefits. Everyone has the right to the protection of the moral and material interests resulting from any scientific, literary or artistic production of which he is the author."

 

The Intellectual Passport (CB or IND) is the name of an unpublished Omnibus volume that encompasses a collection of literary and artistic books resulting from implementing an original codified system, and serve commercial and social purposes. Its preparation process therefore employs an original operating code called “Conventional Identification and Valuation Dossier” (C.I.V.D) which identifies the work with its author, and with the valuation of the commercial project(s) relating thereto. Furthermore, this original operating code is ethical (respectful of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights), and its application obligates practitioners to adhere to the chronological order of the natural law: " Creation Invention  Innovation ”. Just as the author of an original idea first conceives it in its virtual form to its implementation on a material medium or: 1st, is the Creation (producing the description of the original concept that establishes its anteriority internationally); 2nd, the invention (technical applications of the original concept); 3rd, the innovation (technical production and commercialization of the original concept). This procedure restores to moral prejudice its rightful legal primacy over material prejudice, based on the mere fact that work of the mind (unpublished) is original in nature, its ownership is characteristically inalienable (non-transferable), and enforceable against the subsequent filing of monopolistic industrial or commercial exploitation titles. The aforementioned chronological principal is legitimate in all Nations / States having adhered to either one of the two international conventions on copyright (Berne and Universal) and/or having adhered to WIPO (the World Intellectual Property Organization), and /or the U.N.'s (United Nations).

 

Charter of human rights. Produced using the C.I.V.D. code, each book of the Intellectual Passport (CB or IND) Omnibus collection provides to the author of the original concept (described in the book) the proof of his/ her literary property (texts) and/ or artistic property (drawings) that no one has the right to reproduce for commercial purposes without their express authorization. It is as much for the security of the author as for that of his/ her licensees or assignees that the C.I.V.D. code is formulated, by design, to obligatorily attribute exploitation rights to each of them individually, based on their highest performing specialization. Completing a book in the Intellectual Passport (CB or IND) omnibus collection therefore aims to open to the author of an original concept (patentable or not) the possibility to negotiate equitably with third parties, of international stature, the transmission of exploitation rights of his creation, by being freed of the financial burdens related thereto (administrative, industrial, commercial) which, with some exceptions, are incompatible with his socio-economic conditions and professional competence.  The contractual solidarity which unites the author to his assignees and/or its licensees (embedded in the aforementioned process of individualized attribution of exploitation rights) produce the alliance that is necessary for economic and social development of the project, and provide the author with the essential means of legal defense internationally. Utilizing the Intellectual Passport (CB or IND) omnibus volume liberates international access to intellectual property rights, such that it should strengthen the economic growth of all nations without discriminatory consequence for the poorest. If the invention or the methodology resulting from the application of the author’s original concept is commercialized (by him or by a third party) prior to producing the book, it is possible to establish his authorship rights (copyright). Furthermore, the non-publication of a book in this original omnibus collection opens to the assignee the option, through contractual authorization from the author, to file a patent for the invention (or other monopolistic title); the charges and responsibility for which are exclusively assumed by the assignee.

The Intellectual Passport (CB or IND) omnibus volume, expressly dedicated to the creators of original marketable concepts, is therefore called to play a stimulating role in the continuous emergence of innovations that are necessary for scientific, technical and technological progress, whether it relates to industry, the services or the arts.
