Legal Framework for Intangible Assets in Turkey

Intangible assets (IA) are one of the emerging concepts which have recently entered in the innovation studies. There are different associations of IA concept with accounting, business management and organisational management. However, our approach on the IAs, considers the legally protected intellectual assets of organizations in addition to their physical, financial and technical ownerships. In other words, we consider IPR as the main component of the intangible assets and propose that it plays a major role in trade, knowledge diffusion, technology transfer and innovation collaborations. We also argue at Intangible Asset based management should be incorporated into business management and regional development policies. Within this framework, the paper presents the current regulatory structure of Turkey in terms of protection and economizing these assets. Since it is an evaluation of current IPR system analysis, the paper surveys the literature and legal national documents to give insights about the recent changes and trends of Turkey in the integration process with EU and other neighbourhood countries.


Investigation of novel topological indices and their applications in organic chemistry
Gümüş, Selçuk; Türker, Burhan Lemi; Department of Chemistry (2009)
Numerical descriptors, beginning with Wiener, and then named topological indices by Hosoya, have gained gradually increasing importance along with other descriptors for use in QSAR and QSPR studies. Being able to estimate the physical or chemical properties of a yet nonexistent substance as close as possible is very important due to huge consumption of time and money upon direct synthesis. In addition, one may face safety problem as in the case of explosives. There have been almost hundred topological indic...
Synthesis of polythiophene and polypyrrole derivatives and their application in electrochromic devices
Ak, Metin; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Department of Chemistry (2006)
Different substituted thiophene and pyrrole monomers namely hexamethylene (bis-3-thiopheneacetamide) (HMTA), N-(4-(3-thienylmethylene)-oxycarbonylphenyl)maleimide (MBThi), 2,4,6-Tris-(4-pyrrol-1-yl-phenoxy)-[1,3,5]triazine (TriaPy), 2,4,6-Tris-(thiophen-3-ylmethoxy)-[1,3,5] triazine (TriaTh), and N-(2-(thiophen-3-yl)methylcarbonyloxyethyl) maleimide (NMT) were synthesized. The chemical structures of the monomers were characterized by Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (1H-NMR and 13C-NMR) and Fourier Transform Infr...

Radiation-induced and electroinitiated polymerization of allylbenzene has been investigated. Radiation-induced polymerization at room temperature was found to give mainly dimers and trimers with a maximum yield of 5%. Electroinitiated polymerization of the monomer yielded insoluble polymer films on the surface of the anode together with low molecular weight polymers in the bulk solution. The effects of temperature and monomer concentration on the rate of electroinitiated polymerization were also studied. Th...
Mechanical, thermal and rheological characterization of polystyrene/organoclay nanocomposites containing aliphatic elastomer modifiers
Dike, Ali Sinan; Yılmazer, Ülkü (IOP Publishing, 2020-01-01)
In this study, organoclay containing polystyrene (PS) based nanocomposites were prepared by extrusion in the presence of aliphatic elastomer modifiers. Three different types of aliphatic elastomeric materials and three different types of organoclays were used. Their effects on the morphology, and mechanical, thermal, and rheological properties of PS were investigated by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and x-ray diffraction (XRD), tensile and impact tests, different...
Critical Reading Discourse of Pre Service English Teachers in Turkey
Balıkçı, Gözde; Daloğlu, Ayşegül (2016-05-01)
This case study was conducted in order to observe and investigate the critical reading discourse (CRD) of 27 freshman pre-service teachers of English at the department of foreign language teaching at a state university in Turkey. In addition, the study attempts to answer the question of how the critical reading discourse of the students is shaped through feedback, instruction, and time. The written and audio-visual data were collected in the Advanced Reading and Writing...
