a There are four aspects of Intellectual Property for documentation 1 creating the document. If a document has been created by an Author then that author is entitled to Royalties for creating a unique document. If a document is created by somebody to record a process and that Author has not been paid by a Client or a Sponsor then that Author is entitled to Royalties. If a document has been created by somebody who has been paid an agreed sum to create that document by a Client or Sponsor then that document is owned by the Client or Sponsor who are then entitled to Royalties. If a document has been paid for by a Government Department and Published as a tender it is classified as in the Public Domain as it has been paid for by rate and tax-payers. 2 rendering the document accessible electronically One of the major advantages of the Internet is the ability to reference information and documents electronically so that is easily accessible to a number of potential interested parties. The act of rendering the document accessible electronically using htm rather than as an electronic version of a hard-copy document requires time and expertise to render that document accessible 3 developing the Expertise The expertise has been provided by the Research into the RUBAC Electronic Information Management Code over the 5 years to assist a number of organisation to work together to submit worthy responses to complex Government tenders 4 purpose for Electronic Documentation Information Management Codes [EDIMC] the purpose of developing EDIMS is to provide a Good Governance process for project partners to respond quickly to complex tenders and confirm responsibility for agreed modules b EDIMS was prototyped as a live application with European tender for the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development [OECD] tender in Nov 2004 This tender involved consultants in the UK, Cyprus, USA and Australia working together on the Specification to provide a response c The EDIMC Electronic Information process utilises the RUBAC [Rational Universal Business Automation Code] Electronic Information Interchange [EII] methodology. d The RUBAC Information Management Coding methodology is owned by the Hamme Family Trust. e The RUBAC Codes are used to enable the Document Structure and linkages to be used on the Internet. f The Web Research and Development IPR Organisation beneficiaries are: The coding structure was researched and developed by 6 members of the OIC: 1 Hamme Family Trust HFT 2 BKD Pty Ltd BKD 3 PTMS Australia PTM 4 Aiyom Pty Ltd APL 5 GMB & Associates GMB 6 Dark FX DFX 7 Halisa NSW Partnership HNP g The Research and Development IPR Individual beneficiaries are: 1 Ken BROMFIELD BKD 2 Phil HUNNISETT PTM 3 Jim LEE PTM 4 Stevan GILLMORE APL 5 Lars SORHUS DFX 6 Guy BLOMBERG GMB 7 Stephen GOULD HNP
B Intellectual Property Royalties
a There is an established eCredits remuneration structure for Intellectual Property Royalties agreed by members of the Open Interchange Consortium b This eCredits Remuneration Structure was proposed, developed and implemented by members of the OIC XLM & E-commerce Special Interest Group [XZIG] c This eCredits remuneration Structure is based on 8 eCredits 1 Accommodation 2 Entertainment 3 Financial 4 Health 5 Learning 6 Nourishment 7 Travel 8 Other d One eCredit is awarded every time a web-page of EDIMS is accessed e The eDebit is allocated against the Wed-page Sponsors and as a percentage fee if any products/services are ordered electronically.
a The copyright for the codes is owned by the organisation and the parties who researched and develop the code for a specific application, function or process. b Other organisations wishing to use the foundation codes to develop coding structures for similar/other applications and information management processes must e-mail: RUBACcodes@halisa-eu.net to check to see if those applications have not been developed. c If this Research is found to have been used in manual and electronic processes without confirmation, legal action may be taken
D Part of larger coding structure
a The coding structure used to provide the Electronic Document Information Management System [EDIMS] is part of the RUBAC [Rational Universal Business Automation Code] Electronic Information Interchange [EII] Methodology. b Further details on the RUBAC methodology and its value for E-commerce can be reviewed on RUBAC & Electronic Information Management.
E Objectives of coding structure
a The RUBAC methodology was researched to achieve a number of objectives including 1 the automation of management metrics 2 synchronisation of distributed information repositories 3 automatically index and file electronic information 4 minimise transmission time and cost 5 provide a standard structure for information retrieval
