Intellectual property of public lectures

Who owns the rights to a publicly delivered lecture? I came across this issue today at work and the case at hand was resolved to everyones satisfaction, but it is a question I have pondered for a while without a more general, good answer (so far I managed with individual arrangements but this may not be the best approach).

Philadelphia Intellectual/Radical Hangouts

A friend of mine moved to Philadelphia recently and is looking for places where he might run into people of a similar intellectual/philosophical/political bent as him, namely left wing, interested in critical theory, interested in reading hard books. My suggestion was the sort of cafe that radicals, hippies, immigrants and homeless people hang out at. We have a few of those in Minneapolis, but I don't know anything about Philadelphia. Help me, hivemind, you're my only hope!

What is the Intellectual Property component of the USA's GDP?

Any economics geeks out there who can point me to how the government calculates intellectual property now in GDP figures? Is there information on how they calculate the value of a movie versus a TV show versus a book? I've seen some articles that say news shows and newspapers don't count towards the intellectual component of GDP, but is there a thorough explanation anywhere?

So I Kickstarted my idea…do I need to defend it?

I ran a Kickstarter last month to develop a language learning app. It ended up getting a lot of media attention and doing really well. I'm a few days into setting up the business side of things, as I prepare to actually *receive* the Kickstarter funds, and I'm wondering whether I have any protections from a bigger company coming in, using my ideas and making their own competitor products.

Are PhD's More Intellectual?

Obviously higher education is excellent and should be supported by those who have the want, desire, or ability to obtain a doctorate. The question however that was thrown on me the other night was that a PhD and a friend would have trouble conversing about politics and humanity because they are more intellectual. Thoughts?

intelligent or intellectual

I 'm learning English. When you say,"She is an intellectual person." or "She is an intelligent person.", what's the difference of meaning actually? I think ..."My cat is intellectual." is odd,though.("My cat is intelligent." is okay!??)

Do I own the rights to a design I made on Zazzle?

Design rip-off advice needed. I made a few tshirt designs on Zazzle, and have been making a little extra money with one recent design in particular.

How to find bona fide New York intellectuals in New York?

New York intellectuals: where do I find them? Where in the city would I go if I wanted to find intellectuals of the old-school variety, all ready to discuss literature and history, existentialism and poetry, theater and mythology and politics? I know they exist--some older specimens write letters to the New Yorker--but where do these special fauna array to be met and befriended?

What can an artist do about unauthorized commercial use of his artwork?

An artist friend of mine was surprised to see his artwork used without permission on a flier for a band. He had posted the artwork on his website. What can/should he do to stop the misuse? I know that he automatically holds a copyright on the work as its creator. (I have advised him to post watermarked versions of his work in the future to prevent future misuse.)

My Dad sells computer games on the Internet as a hobby. He has done nothing to protect his intellectual property rights other than placing a copyright notice on an "About" screen.
