• The stakes
Human beings are distinguished from animals and machines by their ability to express their sensitivity, creativity and ingenuity by developing ideas, concepts, works and inventions.
Human genius is the most precious thing we have.
In addition to the personal attachment that the author or inventor may have to his creation, it is very often linked to important economic and financial issues. Whether in terms of the investments that have been necessary to make it, or in terms of the gains it can bring, creation has considerable value.
