The 40th anniversary of Nasser

Today, Tuesday 28 September 2010, 40 years passed since the immortal president Gamal Abdel Nasser left our world.

Although, I was born on 23 September 1979, 5 days before the 9th anniversary of his death, but I'm still living on his glories.

A lot of Egyptians miss him. How much we need a man like him in these black days!

To his crystal spirit, I present this song:

I have an urgent letter to you – Singing: Om Kalthoum in Nasser's funeral, 1970

ISNB in Egypt

The International Standard Book Number or ISNB is a number given to a book and often placed on the back cover to protect the book from the plagiarism & quotation. It guarantees the copyright for the author & the publisher because this number is unrepeated ever like the fingerprint!

By ISNB, you can verify your intellectual property, if someone plagiarized your ideas.

Locally in Egypt, beside ISNB, there is The Legal Deposition Number that is given to the books by The National Documents & Books House.

But as usual, getting this local number is a costly thing and takes long procedures.

After the digital or electronic publishing & eBooks became widespread on the internet, Digital Rights Management or DRM appeared.
