How Artificial Intelligence Can Aid Inventors To Prevent Idea Theft

Stealing another company’s ideas is nothing new in the cut-throat corporate world.

Steve Jobs, the late CEO of Apple, once said: “We have always been shameless about stealing great ideas.” Facebook helped build out its global empire with a copycat strategy when it lacked its own imagination and invention, prompting The Wall Street Journal to write: Facebook employees’ new motto? “Don’t be too proud to copy.”

But innovative companies must stand up to this longstanding practice of “borrowing” their ideas; this should not be dismissed as simply the cost of doing business in the fast-paced world of technology. It may not be easy, but coming to the rescue to protect ideas is technology itself.

Companies need to understand the options available to protect them.

Copyright is certainly used but has a very narrow scope. Trademarks are valuable but also limited because they only protect the likes of a business name

Bay Area’s DoorDash to pay $2.5 million after allegedly tip theft

Bay Area restaurant-delivery firm DoorDash has agreed to pay $2.5 million to settle a government lawsuit alleging it stole drivers’ tips and deceived customers into thinking their tip money was going to drivers.

Washington, D.C. attorney general Karl Racine filed the civil suit last year, and in a news release accused the San Francisco company of “lowering labor costs by swiping tips left for workers.”

Racine claimed “DoorDash led consumers to believe that any tips would go directly to food delivery workers, while instead effectively treating this money as extra profit for the company.”

The suit in District of Columbia Superior Court alleged DoorDash would reduce drivers’ pay for each job by the amount of any tip. For example, if a customer left no tip on a job that was to pay $10 to the driver — called a “Dasher” by the company — DoorDash would pay the driver $10,

Tesla Model X vulnerable to Bluetooth hack that makes theft mighty simple, report says

Tesla has been made aware of the security holes, which are fixable with over-the-air updates.


There’s no denying Tesla vehicles are some of the most connected cars on the road. The electric carmaker championed previously unheard of over-the-air software updates that can roll out new features, updates and essential security upgrades without the owner ever needing to find a service center. Not all is well, however, in the ultraconnected world of Tesla.

Wired reported Monday on significant security oversights that Lennert Wouters, a Belgian security researcher, discovered and informed Tesla of earlier this year. While the hack is apparently simple, that’s not to say anyone could just get away with it. The flaws are severe enough that Tesla will reportedly issue a patch for the vulnerabilities in the coming weeks. Tesla does not operate a public relations department to field requests for comment, but according to Wouters, the

Attendees play in a life sized jump royale game at the Epic Games Inc. Fortnite video game booth during the E3 Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, California, U.S., on Tuesday, June 11, 2019. For three days, leading-edge companies, groundbreaking new technologies and never-before-seen products are showcased at E3.

The battle between Apple and Epic focuses on a share of purchases in Fortnite. Epic launched a payment system that circumvented the Apple App Store, so the iPhone maker didn’t get a cut. Apple then stopped new users from downloading Fortnite on its platform, but existing copies of Fortnite can still use Epic’s system.

New information on iPhone privacy, title theft, tax protest, possible driver’s license hack and more

Apple brags about how its iPhones protect your privacy because of strong encryption built into its systems.

But according to a report from Upturn, a Washington, D.C., nonprofit that studies how law enforcement uses technology, a product exists that allows investigators to break into your phone anyway.

Among the city police departments that purchased it — Dallas.

The New York Times first reported that Upturn learned through open records requests that some police departments can essentially rent the technology on an as-needed basis. Other police departments may buy the system in total.

The Dallas Police Department spent $150,000 to buy the Cellebrite technology, records show.

Logs from the Dallas police showed that murder and drug investigations are the top two reasons DPD uses the technology, Upturn reported.

That sounds well and good, but Upturn says this represents a dangerous expansion of police powers that most mobile phone owners don’t realize.
