Week_13 - Invention, Intellectual Property, and Income
This week is about inventions and intellectual property, how to defend your rights for inventions you have done. We have to develop a plan for dissemination of the final project.
Idea behind my projectThe important question I ask at the very beginning is this: Why do I take part in the Fab Academy project and why do I spend a lot of time in my daily work helping people to run projects, increase digital and technological competence? Because I have the knowledge and skills to do so. Moreover, it can help those who do not have the opportunity to go to an expensive school or a course that is not available to them. Most of my social projects that we do in Robisz.these are aimed at people who are excluded in different ways, whether financial or social. Through my projects I want to give new opportunities to people regardless of their status. So when it comes to the financial aspect I will manage my project for everyone but I also want it to develop and change because working on this device is supposed to give me fun and people who will work on it. Below I will try to answer some of the most important questions related to further development of the project.
Canvas business modelMore about Canvas
Customer servicestarget audience of the project
Value propositionsthe most important values it wants to deliver with this product
ChannelsHow to deliver the product, and how to communicate with product customers
Revenue Streamsthat is how the project will be profitable or how it will be financed Because he wants the product to be under an open license, everyone will be able to create their own version of the device, but this does not mean that he will not be able to be financed in any other way than selling the finished product

Cost structureWe have already deducted the cost of the device during Applications and Implications week. So below I will add possible additional costs that you can expect
Intellectual propertyIntellectual property (IP) refers to creations of the mind, such as inventions; literary and artistic works; designs; and symbols, names and images used in commerce. IP is protected in law by, for example, patents, copyright and trademarks, which enable people to earn recognition or financial benefit from what they invent or create. Most known types of intellectual property are :
LICENCE I choosed
Because I want the product to be under an open license, everyone will be able to create their own version of the device. This does not mean that this project will not be able to be financed in any other way than selling. Finished product will have donation option when downloading files (similar to what it is on arduino site) or PureRef. Other option is selling of finished electronic kits for DIY sale of full sets to be assembled together with a 3d printed shell. In addition, an interesting option may be to support the developers of raster and vector graphics software, who may want to add interesting activities to their applications in this way.
