WASD, Intellectual Property Rights and The Reasons Why Prof. Kamil Idris Believes Them To Be Important

Over the years, the world has seen a lot of NGOs that try to solve the pressing problems of the world. Some of them fail, some of them need to make adjustments, but most of them turn the help that they offer into a form of intervention that ends up harming the people they’re helping, instead of making them better. However, there are also organizations today, such as WASD, that have seen a lot of support not just because it’s valuable, but it has already proven itself as an entity that can bring about change in ways that no other NGOs can. Also, with the leadership of Prof. Kamil Idris, the operations of WASD get the right traction and guidelines that it needs to thrive.

 

The Message of Prof. Kamil Idris

We can hear a lot of news lately about the immediate changes that the world needs, but none of them could probably discuss the involvement of intellectual property rights. This might be the reason why Prof. Kamil Idris involves himself in the movement organized by the World Intellectual Property Day advocates. It could also be the reason why he believes that while intellectual property rights is not seen by many as an immediate concern, it should be discussed in national policies if only for the fact that without the right copyrights, patents and other protection for such creative inventions, it could be hard for the world to get the solutions it needs to improve the people’s wellbeing.

 

Without Intellectual Rights Protection

 

It’s easy to take things for granted, especially if the things we take for granted don’t directly affect us, but for Prof. Idris, just by ignoring something doesn’t protect us from the silent damage that it would cause us later on. He believes that without intellectual property rights, new technologies that could potentially empower the world to perform better could not be broadcast and shared to people who need them the most.
