That's true Chuck, but copyright laws give companies recourse.

Today, you have to file separate copyrights in each country.  Something with global reach could make a difference.  One concern would be cost and qualifications.

Security is a thorny issue. I think it will be a hot issue that will keep getting hotter for years to come. So far, it looks like the solutions are lagging behind the ingenuity of the cyber thieves.

Yes, IoT is borderless. I don't think new international laws will help, since cyber threats act outside the law. Like with the Target breech, it could be a teenager showing off.

@Rob: Hi mate yes it's a common issue which we all face. I think its nothing to do with us not knowing the solution for it. Its just a matter of fact that we are not bothered to concentrate hard on it and to figure out an answer for it. What do you think ?

The consumer's tolerance for security breeches is very different today.  Just as the general public accepts a lack of privacy

The main issue will be protecting corporate secrets that can give competitors an advantage.  I wonder if any new international copyright laws are in the works to offer protection.  IoT is borderless.

Good point, Chuck. I kept hearing the same refrain at the show -- everybody knows this is a problem and nobody knows what to do about it.

@Rob: Yes and isn't that what we want ? I feel you have to address the customer and what the requirement is from the customer. Not what the company wants.

I agree Daniyal_Ali. It comes down to the simple prospect of finding out what the customer needs and adjusting your product line to meet that need.

Nice overview, Rob. I completely agree with the comments here, especially regarding the security issues surrounding IoT. Imagine how easily companies could be brought to their knees if virtually everything they do and every piece of equipment they own is connected in some way to the Internet. The situation at Target teaches us that the bad guys are often a step ahead.

Nice share Rob. This is very healthy for productivity of the firms. When there is cut-throat competition in the market, regarding the demands of the users, the firms try to come up with a fast solution to cope up with the changing trends. The firms who are able to adapt with the new demands of the users (making things smaller and faster) remain active, rest are wiped out completely.
