IP (Intellectual property ) theft constraint

Definition

Intellectual property is any innovation, commercial or artistic; any new method or formula with economic value; or any unique name, symbol, or logo that is used commercially. Intellectual property is protected by patents on inventions; trademarks on branded devices; copyrights on music, videos, patterns, and other forms of expression; and state and federal laws.

Stealing intellectual property is cheap and easy. All a thief has to
do is copy someone else’s ideas or product. The other person or company—the
victim—has done all the work, but thieves can reap huge profits. Intellectual property theft can cost
people their jobs, damage the reputation of the original maker of the
counterfeited product, cause sickness and bodily harm, deprive governments of
desperately needed tax revenue, and even result in the spread of organized crime
and gangs—which in turn can damage more lives and destroy neighborhoods. It
isn’t a victimless crime

Financial Constraint on businesses

 Constraints-The threat or use of force to prevent, restrict, or dictate the action or thought of others

Meaning of skills

Graphic/Digital designer ( web designing)

 

Hand coded – In computing, hand coding means editing the underlying representation of a document or a computer program, when tools that allow working on a higher level representation also exist. Typically this means editing the source code, or the textual representation of a document or program, instead of using a WYSIWYG editor that always displays an approximation of the final product. It may also mean translating the whole or parts of the source code into machine language manually instead of using a compiler or an automatic translator.

HTLM 5 –  is a broad set of new technologies being implemented in most browsers. It includes video playback, a drawing surface, drag-and-drop, geolocation, CSS transforms, animation, GPU support, Web fonts, SVG, faster JavaScript, WebGL, and more awesome stuff.

CSS – Stands for “Cascading Style Sheet.”  Cascading style sheets are used to format the layout of Web pages.  They can be used to define text styles, table sizes, and other aspects of Web pages that previously could only be defined in a page’s HTML.

W3C stands for the World Wide Web Consortium, an industry group seeking to establish programming and design standards for all elements of Internet based communications.  This international volunteer effort attempts to create accessible information for all users.  The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) develops interoperable technologies (specifications, guidelines, software, and tools) to lead the Web to its full potential.
