Trust: A Model For Disclosure In Patent Law, Ari Ezra Waldman 2017 New York Law School

Trust: A Model For Disclosure In Patent Law, Ari Ezra Waldman

Indiana Law Journal

How to draw the line between public and private is a foundational, first-principles question of privacy law, but the answer has implications for intellectual property, as well. This project is one in a series of papers about first-person disclosures of information in the privacy and intellectual property law contexts, and it defines the boundary between public and nonpublic information through the lens of social science —namely, principles of trust.

Patent law’s public use bar confronts the question of whether legal protection should extend to information previously disclosed to a small group of people. I present evidence that shows that ...

It Services Offshoring To Africa: Assessing The Attractiveness And Readiness Of Nigeria, Joshua O. Omoju 2017 Lagos Business School, Pan-Atlantic University

It Services Offshoring To Africa: Assessing The Attractiveness And Readiness Of Nigeria, Joshua O. Omoju

The African Journal of Information Systems

This paper presents one of the first comprehensive analyses of Nigeria’s future readiness and attractiveness as a potential destination for IT-enabled services offshoring. The paper examines existing literature on IT services offshoring to Africa, and presents results from in-depth evaluation of seven important location selection criteria. The study indicates that while Nigeria appears to be making progress in many areas, the country is neither yet ready nor attractive as an offshoring destination. Nevertheless, the analysis suggests that Nigeria might already be on the path to attaining readiness in the future. However, significant hurdles will need to be surmounted if ...


Corporate Reputation And The Commercialization Of Innovation: Does Reputation Match Reality, And Does Innovation Matter?, Avimanyu Datta, Len Jessup, Richard Reed 2017 Illinois State University

Corporate Reputation And The Commercialization Of Innovation: Does Reputation Match Reality, And Does Innovation Matter?, Avimanyu Datta, Len Jessup, Richard Reed

Richard Reed

We seek to understand which firms excel at innovation and commercialization. In doing so, we first ranked companies that performed well on four measures: spending on R&D Spending (2006), Patenting (cumulative 2006 and 2007) and Commercialization of Innovations (Cumulative for 2007 and 2008). We then compared our rankings with that of Business Week/Boston Consulting Group’s annual ranking of the most innovative companies, which primarily is based on reputation measured as perceptions among sitting CEO’s. Somewhat surprisingly, there is not complete overlap between our more quantitative ranking and the one done by Business Week/BCG, and we ...

An Implementation Of A Dynamic Partitioning Scheme For Web Pages, Timothy Arndt, Ben Blake, Brian Krupp, Janche Sang 2017 Cleveland State University

An Implementation Of A Dynamic Partitioning Scheme For Web Pages, Timothy Arndt, Ben Blake, Brian Krupp, Janche Sang

Ben Blake

In this paper, we introduce a method for the dynamic partitioning of web pages. The algorithm is first illustrated by manually partitioning a web page, then the implementation of the algorithm using PHP is described. The method results in a partitioned web page consisting of small pieces or fragments which can be retrieved concurrently using AJAX or similar technology. The goal of this research is to increase performance of web page delivery by decreasing the latency of web page retrieval.

Institutional Regime Shift In Intellectual Property Rights And Innovation Strategies Of Firms In China, Kenneth G. L. HUANG, Xuesong GENG, Heli WANG 2017 National University of Singapore

Institutional Regime Shift In Intellectual Property Rights And Innovation Strategies Of Firms In China, Kenneth G. L. Huang, Xuesong Geng, Heli Wang

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

This study develops a novel conceptual framework to understand the differential impact of formal institutional regime shift in intellectual property rights on the innovation and patenting strategies of Chinese and Western firms operating in China. We argue that to the extent that Chinese firms have been deeply embedded in China’s informal institutions,they are less responsive to formal institutional changes than Western firms operating in China. Using the major China patent law reform of 2001 as an exogenous event, we find results consistent with our key arguments: With the strengthening of the previously weak (utility model) patent protection, Chinese ...

Why Trade Credit Financing Is More Important Than Developing Large Customer Relationships For Video Game Suppliers, Jocelyn D. Evans, Dominique G. Outlaw 2017 College of Charleston

Why Trade Credit Financing Is More Important Than Developing Large Customer Relationships For Video Game Suppliers, Jocelyn D. Evans, Dominique G. Outlaw

The Journal of Entrepreneurial Finance

Trade credit extended to suppliers in the video game industry does not serve as a commitment device for large customers in determining which vendors to make relationship-specific investments in. Suppliers of video games are better off investing in relationships with trade creditors than seeking out large customers. The costs of large customer relationships are lower sales growth and less long-term debt leverage. Also, large customers don’t form relationships with suppliers in this industry, which has high research and development expenditures nor do they facilitate economic viability with regard to continued independent operational performance or listing on a stock exchange.


State Iq, Well-Being And Racial Composition As Predictors Of U.S. Presidential Election Outcomes, Bryan J. Pesta, Michael A. McDaniel 2017 Cleveland State University

State Iq, Well-Being And Racial Composition As Predictors Of U.S. Presidential Election Outcomes, Bryan J. Pesta, Michael A. Mcdaniel

Byran J. Pesta

We report state-level relationships between measures of well-being (e.g., IQ, income) and racial minority composition as predictors of this century's U.S. presidential election outcomes. In bivariate analyses, race only weakly predicted votes cast for democrats. Instead, large mutual suppression effects existed between racial composition and well-being. For example, when race appeared in the regression, the IQ sub-domain of well-being predicted votes cast for democrats in all elections since 2000. Likewise, when IQ (or any other well-being sub-domain) appeared in the regression, race strongly predicted votes cast for democrats. Suppression effects emerged because of negative correlations between well-being ...


Coordinating Supply And Demand On An On-Demand Platform: Price, Wage, And Payout Ratio, Jiaru BAI, Kut C SO, Christopher TANG, Xiqun CHEN, Hai WANG 2017 Singapore Management University

Coordinating Supply And Demand On An On-Demand Platform: Price, Wage, And Payout Ratio, Jiaru Bai, Kut C So, Christopher Tang, Xiqun Chen, Hai Wang

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

Consider a situation when an on-demand service platform uses earnings-sensitive independent providers with heterogeneous reservation price (for work participation) to serve its wait-time and price sensitive customers with heterogeneous valuation of the service. As such, both the supply and demand are “endogenously” dependent on the price the platform charges its customers and the wage the platform pays its independent providers. In this paper, we present a queueing model with endogenous supply (number of participating agents) and endogenous demand (customer request rate) to model this on-demand service platform. To coordinate endogenous demand with endogenous supply, we use the steady state performance ...


Intellectual Property And Autonomous Vehicles In A Gridlock Economy. A Submission To The House Of Representatives Standing Committee On Industry, Innovation, And Science And Resource's Inquiry Into The Social Issues Relating To Land-Based Driveless Vehicles In Australia, Matthew Rimmer 2017 Queensland University of Technology

Intellectual Property And Autonomous Vehicles In A Gridlock Economy. A Submission To The House Of Representatives Standing Committee On Industry, Innovation, And Science And Resource's Inquiry Into The Social Issues Relating To Land-Based Driveless Vehicles In Australia, Matthew Rimmer

Matthew Rimmer

For emerging technologies such as autonomous vehicles, it is important that the patent system promote high-quality innovation and competition policy. Academic researchers such as Professor Michael Heller and Professor Rebecca Eisenberg have discussed the problem of the ‘tragedy of the anticommons’ and the ‘gridlock economy’. There are also a number of policy responses to trying to address the problem of patent thickets, generally, and, perhaps specifically, in respect of autonomous vehicles. The option of patent pools have been used to resolve the problem of fragmented, overlapping patent rights in certain crowded markets. Cross-licensing can be used in certain circumstances. Public ...


Iso 9000 Internalization And Organizational Commitment - Implications For Process Improvement And Operational Performance, Cigdem Ataseven, Daniel I. Prajogo, Anand Nair 2017 Cleveland State University

Iso 9000 Internalization And Organizational Commitment - Implications For Process Improvement And Operational Performance, Cigdem Ataseven, Daniel I. Prajogo, Anand Nair

Cigdem Ataseven

This study presents an investigation of the relationship between internalization of ISO 9000 practices and the development of intellectual capital within organizations. We posit that intellectual capital, which comprises of human capital, organizational capital, and social capital, leads to improved processes in an organization. Process improvement, in turn, results in superior operational performance. Using a sample of 321 ISO 9001 certified organizations, the hypothesized relationships are tested by means of the structural equation modeling technique. The results of this study lend strong support for the hypotheses and show that performance benefits from the internalization of ISO 9000 standards occur mainly ...

Profile Of Corporate Social Media Consumer Segments, Beverly Wright, Aberdeen Leila Borders, Paul H. Schwager, S. Scott Nadler

Aberdeen L Borders

The trade and academic literature is replete with commentary about the need for companies to develop promotional strategies and to adopt media platforms that are more engaging and conversational with customers than the traditional top-down company directed one-way communication strategies of the past (Thomas, Peters, Howell and Robbins, 2012; Foster, West and Francescucci 2011; Deighton and Kornfeld, 2009). This viewpoint is supported by Christodoulides (2008) who reported that many customers view information about a company or brand that they obtained from blogs, social networking sites and the like as being more relevant, believable and important to them in their interactions ...

Advances In Composite Manufacturing Of Helicopter Parts, Tobias A. Weber, Hans-Joachim K. Ruff-Stahl

International Journal of Aviation, Aeronautics, and Aerospace

This study investigates and compares different methods for improving standard autoclave composite manufacturing in order to find suitable approaches to a more efficient composite production. The goal is not only a reduction in manufacturing times and costs but also quality enhancement. Improved part quality while decreasing costs enables a manufacturer of composite parts to expand its market share, especially in the helicopter market, which has been constantly shrinking over the last two years. Various approaches such as improved tooling technology, the use of automated systems for lamination as well as outsourcing are examined to provide an overview of possible advancements ...

Ethanol Blend: Ready For Prime Time?, Paul W. Gallagher

Paul Gallagher

People and decision-makers know about the jobs benefit from the Midwest's growing ethanol industry. However, the possibility of relief from high gasoline prices is not as well-advertised. E85, an ethanol-based fuel substitute for gasoline has potential. But important aspects of the market situation have been excluded or described in a one-sided fashion.
