“In Ireland, films with as few as twelve points have qualified, provided they had a strong connection to the coproduction countries, such as being filmed in Ireland with postproduction work in the U.K. The same percentage and point system rules also apply to other European coproductions under the convention.”
“For coproductions under the European Convention, the required expenditure in the U.K. is usually much lower than a straight sale-leaseback (20% rather than 70%), but the producer must satisfy a point system based on the nationality of the key creative elements (discussed more fully in the Ireland section below).”
“A detailed point system was used by the Canadian Audio-Visual Certification Office CAVCO to measure the extent of the Canadian elements involved in the project, and the production had to amass a minimum of six points out of a possible ten in order to be certified as a Canadian film.”
“Braille, keeping to Barbier's point system and the principle of relief writing, found the means of representing, by the various combinations of six dots, not of the sounds but the alphabetical letters and all the signs of punctuation, and even of music.”
“Before him, Valentin Haüy, the founder of the Institution for the Blind, had invented the method of printing in raised letters which allowed the blind to read by touch; Charles Barbier had invented a sonographic point system as distinguished from Haüy's line or letter system and had devised a simple instrument by which the blind could emboss the words or print them in relief.”
