Intellectual Property Donors will their copyright to expire when they do

If I should die before I wake, I pray the Public my Intellectual Property to take.

OK, so maybe that's not quite as catchy as the old bedtime rhyme. But have you ever thought of what will happen to the work you have created once you've permanently expired? The folks over at ni9e.com have, and the result is their Intellectual Property Donor sticker:



Once you pass on, your intellectual property is actually removed from the public sphere for 50 years (in Canada; in the US it's 70 years) making it impossible for anyone to legally build upon or integrate your work into their own.

To make sure your ideas outlive your body, download and print your own IP Donor sticker (includes handy instructional video).
