1. How are all of these concepts of intellectual property, related to a
technology negotiation?
In e-commerce, intellectual property is important for several reasons. E-commerce, more
than any other commercial system, often involves the sale of products and services
based on intellectual property and the granting of corresponding licenses. Music,
images, photos, computer programs, designs, training modules, systems, etc., are
subject to e-commerce. In all of them, the main component of value is intellectual
property, which is important because the valuable elements that are traded over the
Internet must be protected, using technological security systems and intellectual
property standards; otherwise they could be stolen and this could cause the destruction
of a company.
In addition, it is intellectual property that makes e-commerce work. The systems that
give life to the Internet - computer programs, networks, designs, integrated circuits,
routers and switches, the user interface, etc. - are elements of intellectual property and
are often protected by intellectual property rights. Brands are a fundamental part of e-
commerce, and the development of the brand, the recognition of the customer and the
good name, fundamental elements of a company on the Internet, are protected by
trademarks and the right of unfair competition.

eradication as a goal?
To ensure the sustainability of food production systems and implement resilient
agricultural practices that increase productivity and production, contribute to the
maintenance of ecosystems, strengthen the capacity to adapt to climate change,
extreme weather events, droughts, floods and other disasters, and progressively
improve the quality of soil and land.
Increase investments, including through increased international cooperation, in rural
infrastructure, agricultural research and extension services, technological development
and gene banks of plants and livestock in order to improve agricultural production
capacity in countries in development, particularly in the least developed countries.
Adopt measures to ensure the proper functioning of food commodity markets and their
derivatives and facilitate timely access to market information, particularly on food
reserves, to help limit the extreme volatility of food prices.
