Intellectual Property Survivor – Explaining Intellectual Property Via Reality TV
from the it's-come-to-this? dept
I am really not sure what to make of this one. Over in Singapore, they’re trying to make the idea of intellectual property “fun and exciting”. Why? I have no idea. However, that’s not the crazy part. In order to reach this “fun and exciting” goal, they’re creating a reality TV show that promotes intellectual property. Ah, the irony that will come the second that first episode shows up on a file sharing network. Basically, it sounds like a pretty weak concept for a TV show. Teams will have to come up with a product and overcome certain challenges, while also developing a marketing plan for their products. It’s not exactly clear what any of this really has to do with intellectual property – but the folks in Singapore sure seem to think there’s a connection there.
