Never mind the hypothesis, give me the data, and there aren’t any,” said Professor Steve Jones, a geneticist at University College London.“I could just as well argue that mutations have reduced our aggression, our depression and our penis length but no journal would publish that. ” Professor Jones said.“I am an advocate of Gradgrind science – facts, facts and more facts; but we need ideas too, and this is an ideas paper although I have no idea how the idea could be tested,” he said.THE DESCENT OF MANHunter-gatherer man The human brain and its immense capacity for knowledge evolved during this long period of prehistory when we battled against the elements Athenian man The invention of agriculture less than 10,000 years ago and the subsequent rise of cities such as Athens relaxed the intensive natural selection of our “intelligence genes”.
Try asking your bank or solicitor to store the document for you and send you a letter confirming the date they received it.
Once your idea is protected you can begin exploiting it but that is another story.....
If an idea is "artistic" it may qualify for protection by copyright whereas "industrial" ideas may be protected by patents or designs.
Trade marks protect a firm's name and logos and with the current boom in branded goods and services they are a highly lucrative form of intellectual property. A person may only have one brainwave in their life and there are many horror stories of people literally costing themselves a fortune by not realising they had rights in an idea until it was too late for them to obtain protection. First, never tell anyone about your idea until you have seen a specialist lawyer, trade mark agent or patent agent because some forms of intellectual property protection are lost once an idea has become public knowledge.

This is the controversial hypothesis of a leading geneticist who believes that the immense capacity of the human brain to learn new tricks is under attack from an array of genetic mutations that have accumulated since people started living in cities a few thousand years ago.Couch-potato man As genetic mutations increase over future generations, are we doomed to watching soap-opera repeats without knowing how to use the TV remote control?
