”If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange apples, then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have one idea and I have one idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.” - George Bernard Shaw
With the above in mind, Bangladesh Copyright & Industrial Property (IP) Forum (BCIPF) introduces “INTELLECT” the first ever intellectual property quarterly in Bangladesh. INTELLECT aspires to be a platform from which we make the next great leap - a leap away from the poverty of ideas and innovations; from the apathy that imprisons us to live in dilemmas when the solution is within us.
In this new journey we would like to thank Mr. Kazi Zahin Hasan, Chairman, Board of Trustees, Bangladesh Copyright & IP Forum, for his constant support. We celebrate our sponsors and contributors, whose support has been, and will continue to be crucial in our endeavours.
In bringing INTELLECT to your doorstep, we are acting on the belief that the proliferation of ideas, showcasing of the genius, the profiling of the best of us, the illumination of and advocacy for intellectual property rights will inspire us to innovate, help us to create and allow us to birth solutions to what may seem like intractable problems.
We request you, dear reader, to absolve if we fall short of our aspirations in this first issue, and to stay with us through every future issue as we grow. We invite you to continue on our intellectual journey and to stretch with us as we all reach for the stars together. Join us so we may inspire and collaborate, share and exchange ideas of innovation and live within the solution and become “Einsteins” in whatever we do.
