Estimating The Economic Impact Of Mass Digitization Projects On Copyright Holders: Evidence From The Google Book Search Litigation, 2009 Selected Works

Estimating The Economic Impact Of Mass Digitization Projects On Copyright Holders: Evidence From The Google Book Search Litigation

Hannibal Travis

Google Book Search (GBS) has captured the attention of many commentators and government officials, but even as they vigorously debate its legality, few of them have marshaled new facts to determine its likely effects on publishing and other information markets. This Article challenges the conventional wisdom propounded by the U.S. and German governments, as well as Microsoft and other competitors of Google, concerning the likely economic impact of mass book-digitization projects. Originally advanced by publishing industry lobbying groups, the prevailing account of mass book-digitization projects is that they will devastate authors and publishers, just as Napster and its heirs ...

Visual Testimony: Lee Miller’S Dachau, Sharon Sliwinski 2009 Selected Works

Visual Testimony: Lee Miller’S Dachau, Sharon Sliwinski

Sharon Sliwinski

This essay examines images of the liberation of Dachau concentration camp taken by American war correspondent and photographer Lee Miller. Miller’s work is mobilized as an optic through which to grasp the shock of confronting the Nazi camps. Her images are read as a form of visual testimony. That is, although they fail to provide a transparent view of what occurred in the Nazi lagers, they are nevertheless inscribed with all that the photographer did not know of the events to which she bore witness. The nature of this strange unintelligibility is what the author pursues: the visual inscription ...

The Invention Of Islamic History, S. Adel Hashemi-Najafabadi 2009 Australian National University

The Invention Of Islamic History, S. Adel Hashemi-Najafabadi

S. Adel Hashemi-Najafabadi

Generally, in the history of religion, the interrelation of religion and society has produced numerous invented traditions. Hence, not only a specific religion has had various appearances during its history, but also it may be different in the same time in different parts of the world. This study provides a discussion to clarify that to what extent the history of Islam has been invented and how. For this purpose, two different viewpoints of the insiders or Muslims and the outsiders or non-Muslims will be examined. In fact, it is clear that each side looks at this historical scene through its ...

Masking, Blurring, Replacing: Can The Undocumented Migrant Have A Face In Film?, Olaf Berg, Helen Schwenken 2009 University of Kassel

Masking, Blurring, Replacing: Can The Undocumented Migrant Have A Face In Film?, Olaf Berg, Helen Schwenken

Olaf Berg

The question whether the undocumented migrant can have a face in film is at first glance not a question of aesthetics. It is their social and legal condition, not aesthetics, which prevent undocumented migrants from showing their face. But the question becomes more complex if we take into account, that films are a part of the migration regime. It works like a vicious circle: The migration regime forces undocumented migrants to conceal their face. But the image of a face not only helps to identify and trace a specific person, it also helps the spectator to identify with the person ...

El Poder En La Nueva Guatemala: La Disputa Sobre Los Alcaldes De Barrio, 1761-1821, Jordana Dym

Jordana Dym

"La introducción de alcaldes de barrio en Nueva Guatemala, capital del reino de Guatemala, a finales del siglo XVIII, inició veinte años de pleitos entre el capitán general, la Audiencia, el Cabildo y varios inmigrantes españoles sobre la posición de esta nueva institución de seguridad pública dentro del sistema de organismos de gobierno reales y locales. ¿Dependerían los alcaldes de barrio del Cabildo, autoridad tradicional de policía, o de la Audiencia? ¿Quiénes serían aptos para el servicio, españoles "honrados", "distinguidos", o simplemente "vecinos" del barrio? ¿Qué sería igual a o menor al honor de servir en este nuevo cargo honorífico ...
