If God Does not Enforce "Intellectual Property" then Why Should We?
What is Intellectual Property?
Intellectual property (IP) refers to creations of the mind, such as inventions; literary and artistic works; designs; and symbols, names and images used in commerce.
IP is protected in law by, for example, patents, copyright and trademarks, which enable people to earn recognition or financial benefit from what they invent or create. By striking the right balance between the interests of innovators and the wider public interest, the IP system aims to foster an environment in which creativity and innovation can flourish.

Question to the Reader: How much should the creator charge for its invention, that is, for the universe, the planet, the ocean, the galaxy, plants, fruits, animals, including us? Why doesn't God enforce who or how its creations/inventions can be used by others? More importantly, in your opinion what do you think is God's exclusive rights granted to humans beings?
Geographical indications and appellations of origin are signs used on goods that have a specific geographical origin and possess qualities, a reputation or characteristics that are essentially attributable to that place of origin.

Last but not least, if the air that we all breath to live was given to us for free, therefore life is a gift and an opportunity to celebrate.
