"The site brings together contributions from young designers, composers, entrepreneurs and artists from all across the EU to show how IP underpins and supports innovation and creativity. [It] also includes a video competition which invites young people to submit their views on how Intellectual Property matters to them.Ideas Powered is a bit more fun than the regular OHIM website, and easier to find your way round. The style of the website is might best be described as a rather self-conscious "this is about as funky as we can be, considering that we're EU bureaucrats" sort of style and this Kat thinks that some good folk have been second-guessing what might just appeal to all those protesting but basically fair 15 to 24 year-olds at whom it's directed. You can also enjoy Ideas Powered on Facebook and Twitter [oh goodness, murmurs Merpel, I've just realised that it's called Ideas Powered because its initial letters are 'IP' ...].
Today’s release follows on from a 2013 study carried out by OHIM into how EU citizens – including young people – perceive Intellectual Property. The results showed that eight out of ten 15-24 year olds in the EU believe that buying counterfeit products has a negative economic effect, and two thirds agree that illegal downloading is a threat to the economy and jobs. However, 50% still justify buying counterfeits as an act of protest or a smart purchase and 57% think illegally accessing copyright-protected content for personal use is acceptable" [well, if you will ask them ...].
