Pero también fueron el momento histórico en el que el videojuego comenzó a convertirse en el monstruo que es ahora gracias a los microordenadores de eight bits: el ZX Spectrum, el Amstrad CPC, el MSX, el Commodore 64.

Alrededor de este tinglado tecnológico, un puñado de jóvenes imberbes (y alguno con unos cuantos años de más) levantaron de los angeles nada una industria inexistente hasta ese momento. Nombres como Dinamic, ERBE, Made in Spain, Opera o Topo se ganaron a pulso un lugar en el corazón de una generación entera de españoles que descubrió que el ordenador servía para algo más que para hacer los deberes de clase.

Ocho Quilates pretende ser una crónica de esos años contada por boca de sus protagonistas. Es una historia de pioneros, de primeras veces, de sueños y de decepciones. En resumidas cuentas, es otro relato más en el que sus protagonistas se abren paso en el mundo adulto a l. a. vez que montan sus negocios desde cero sin poseer l. a. mayoría de edad.

Sample text

Despite language in a contract that clearly lays out the rights and duties of the employer and employee who divulged the secret, both judges and juries make determinations based on their own considerations of fairness developed through an understanding of the contextual situation, and trade secret cases are often complicated as a result. Both academicians and nonacademic creators should consider the impact of trade secret on their work. Creators are often bound by trade secret clauses in employment contracts; thus, they should be aware that their employment contract regulates their actions regarding workplacedeveloped knowledge.

In any era, controlling knowledge is equivalent to controlling power in society, but the potential power in creating and controlling knowledge becomes even more momentous in an age where technology is making information our greatest economic and political commodity. My analysis of the intersection of humanistic studies, the Internet, and intellectual property law reveals a conflict of ideologies. The compatible ideologies of humanistic studies and Internet communities favor interpretation and development of intellectual property law that supports egalitarian access to knowledge and its development.

Software developers may have recourse based on an argument of “existence of prior art” (lack of novelty in the subject of proposed patent), but reexamination is rarely requested and the competitor most often will choose to litigate the dispute instead (Galler 32). Academicians or other creators who might be thinking of obtaining software patents should consider this option only if the software has a high commercial value, will be used for a long period of time, and could be copied easily through reverse engineering.
