TaskYou have graduated from your degree and now work in a small tech start-up company. Potential investors are excited about the technology you are developing, and see significant opportunity for financial growth. However the investors also place high importance on social responsibilities: although they want to make money, they also want their investments to make positive contributions to society (in fact, some investors may be prepared to lose money if the social contribution is significant). You have been tasked to prepare a report for potential investors that allows them to understand the potential social, ethical and legal opportunities and risks of the technology your company is developing. Your report should cover the following:1. Explain the technology being developed.2. List the stakeholders in the technology you are developing. That is, who may potentially benefit or lose from the development.3. Discuss the intellectual property protection that your company may obtain, including the advantages and disadvantages of using protection. At least 2 measures must be discussed - select from copyright, trademarks, patents and trade secrets.4. Discuss potential opportunities and benefits that the technology may bring, and which stakeholders are involved. At least 2 issues must be discussed, e.g. related to privacy, censorship, employment, cybercrime, information overload (or other ethical/social issues).5. Discuss potential risks and drawbacks that the technology may bring, and which stakeholders are involved. At least 2 issues must be discussed.6. Summarises why the technology opportunities outweigh the risks (that is, convince the investors to invest).
