NEW CIVILIZATION FOUNDATION
7.13 LEGAL AFFAIRS
7.13.1 The New Civilization Foundation will support and encourage experimentation into new models for social order, regulation and ethical conduct. The NCF will be supportive of creating institutions to research and monitor existing or proposed legislation in many regions and topics, that inform the public about threats to their freedom, health or happiness, and that support appropriate changes in existing law and order.
7.13.2 The first role for NCF is in the active support and encouragement
of alternative forms of law -- specifically experimentation into new
versions of social structure and conduct. NCF communities may, within
their own borders, experiment with such things as Common Law concepts and
other techniques which suggest means by which sustainable justice,
equality, and legal integrity can be more readily and precisely obtained,
enhanced, and/or fostered.
7.13.3 The second potential NCF role in Legal Affairs is that of the monitoring,
watchdog service whose primary goal is to ensure the freedom, health and
happiness of every member of the human race by providing timely, accurate,
and understandable descriptions of the current state of laws being
considered, already on-the-books, and their anticipated effects on society
at large. The latter category includes the actual or possible effects of
any law or set of laws being legally or illegally enforced (or in some
cases, unjustifiably ignored). NCF's Legal Affairs Monitoring (LAM) would
also include all levels of court, agency, and other governmental rulings,
their interpretations and effects, and the content and degree of counter
arguments and criticisms.
188.8.131.52 The extent of such monitoring could extend from
the installation of speed cameras by government or business, to the legal control of health products
and services, from educational issues to freedom of the press, and from
environmental law to any potential threat to humanity's freedom, health or
happiness. NCF may also provide transcriptions of Old Civ laws,
regulations, tax codes, and other governmental data on the InterNet in
user-friendly language, along with possible alternatives to such
184.108.40.206 NCF Legal Affairs may also include promoting and initiating the
modification of existing local, state, and national laws and codes in order
to allow and facilitate the design, testing, manufacture, and use of
alternative technologies in housing, transportation, energy generation and
use, human waste reclamation, health practices and systems, farming methods
and practices, and other innovations which may be advanced by one or more
NCF seeded communities.
7.13.4 NCF Legal Affairs will also patent all inventions and process discovered or created by NCF Staff, community members, or participants in NCF related organizations as requested by the inventors. NCF Legal Affairs will also monitor all inventions, trademarks, and copyrights held by the NCF for unauthorized use by others.
220.127.116.11 Also, on a pro bono, no strings attached basis, NCF Legal Affairs will patent inventions by others as long as those inventions are not military or weapon oriented.
