in 2030 people will become obsolete ?
companies are known to use tactics like planned obsolescence and locking in users to their ecosystem by making their products interoperable or illegal to repair. What doe sthis mean when our bodies become dependent on devices we do not 'own' or 'control' ?
Based on intellectual property rights research on the need for the right to repair, for data portability, interoperability and granting people control over data and devices.
Who controls and owns what we 'see' in public ? We know children learn by doing, great artists copy and even greater artists steal but we ignore this fact of what we do by allowing companies to sue people, artists for sampling for building upon the shoulders of the giant copycats before them.
Why do we allow companies to pollute our public spaces and environment with advertising for their own gains ? Why do we allow people being sued for using what they have been forced to see ? Images, logo's slogans and jingles that are designed to worm their way into our (sub)consiousness
intellectual 'property' and the attention economy, is our brain the most expensive property we do not own ?
Innovations for brain-computer interface and the development of meta-verse raise concern and calls for laws and neuroethics to protect us from mind/system control.
