Explaining The Demise Of The Doctrine Of Equivalents, David L. Schwartz Oct 2010

Explaining The Demise Of The Doctrine Of Equivalents, David L. Schwartz

All Faculty Scholarship

This article provides a novel theoretical model and extensive empirical evidence to explain the decline of a historically important patent law doctrine known as the “doctrine of equivalents.” In recent years, distinguished academics have studied the doctrine of equivalents. While these scholars noted that the doctrine of equivalents had decreased in its successful use and provided some grounds for the decline, none clearly explained why. As such, the cause and precise mechanism behind the so-called “demise” of the doctrine of equivalents have largely remained a mystery.

This article explains that the demise occurred because of two complementary forces discussed for ...


Oral Dissenting On The Supreme Court, Christopher W. Schmidt, Carolyn Shapiro Oct 2010

Oral Dissenting On The Supreme Court, Christopher W. Schmidt, Carolyn Shapiro

All Faculty Scholarship

In this Article we offer the first comprehensive evaluation of oral dissenting on the Supreme Court. We examine the practice in both historical and contemporary perspective, take stock of the emerging academic literature on the subject, and suggest a new framework for analysis of oral dissenting. Specifically, we put forth several claims. Contrary to the common assumption of scholarship and media coverage, oral dissents are nothing new. Oral dissenting has a long tradition, and its history provides valuable lessons for understanding the potential and limits of oral dissents today. Furthermore, not all oral dissents are alike. Dissenting Justices may have ...

2020 Foresight: Technology In Legal Education After The Reboot, Debbie Ginsberg, Emily Barney, Sejal Vaishnev

Presentations

Presentation from the American Association of Law Libraries 103rd Annual Meeting and Conference.

In 1990, not many people understood the impact that the Internet, email, and PowerPoint would have on our law schools by 2000. In 2000, who knew that in 2010 law schools would need to create Facebook pages, LinkedIn groups, and Twitter feeds? In this panel, Debbie Ginsberg, Emily Barney, and Sejal Vaishnev discuss three visions of law school technology in 2020: in the classroom, on the web, and in our technology administration centers. What technologies are likely to become vital tools and which will disappear? More importantly ...

The Inviolate Home: Housing Exceptionalism In The Fourth Amendment, Stephanie M. Stern May 2010

The Inviolate Home: Housing Exceptionalism In The Fourth Amendment, Stephanie M. Stern

All Faculty Scholarship

The ideal of the inviolate home dominates the Fourth Amendment. The case law accords stricter protection to residential search and seizure than to many other privacy incursions. The focus on protection of the physical home has decreased doctrinal efficiency and coherence and derailed Fourth Amendment residential privacy from the core principle of intimate association. This Article challenges Fourth Amendment housing exceptionalism. Specifically, I critique two hallmarks of housing exceptionalism: first, the extension of protection to residential spaces unlikely to shelter intimate association or implicate other key privacy interests; and second, the prohibition of searches that impinge on core living spaces ...

Undermined Norms: The Corrosive Effect Of Information Processing Technology On Informational Privacy, Richard Warner Mar 2010

Undermined Norms: The Corrosive Effect Of Information Processing Technology On Informational Privacy, Richard Warner

All Faculty Scholarship

Informational privacy is a matter of control; it consists in the ability to control when one’s personal information is collected, how it is used, and to whom it is distributed. The degree of control we once enjoyed has vanished. Advances in information processing technology now give others considerable power to determine when personal information is collected, how it is used, and to it is whom distributed. Privacy advocates sound the alarm in regard to both the governmental and private sectors. I focus exclusively on the later. Relying on the extensive privacy advocate literature, I assume we should try to ...


Music Markets And Mythologies, Henry H. Perritt Jr. Mar 2010

Music Markets And Mythologies, Henry H. Perritt Jr.

All Faculty Scholarship

New technologies have started a revolution in the music marketplace. As new business models emerge, major firms in the popular music industry have mounted a campaign on the premise that the world of popular music faces a grave threat from illicit filing sharing. This article makes the case against that campaign. It discusses how new technologies are currently reshaping the marketplace to allow a wider range of new artists, as well as more direct access between musicians and their fans. It also predicts how future demand for popular music will increase due to portability, and ultimately recommends directions for marketplace ...

Constitutional Torts, Over-Deterrence And Supervisory Liability After Iqbal (2010) (Symposium), Sheldon Nahmod Mar 2010

Constitutional Torts, Over-Deterrence And Supervisory Liability After Iqbal (2010) (Symposium), Sheldon Nahmod

All Faculty Scholarship

My forthcoming Article is divided into the following parts. In Part I, I survey relevant aspects of the law of § 1983 and Bivens. Painting with a broad brush and for the most part descriptively, I maintain that the Court’s concern with over-deterrence has increasingly dominated constitutional torts. In Part II, I address the relevance of that concern for supervisory liability, set out what the Court said about supervisory liability in Iqbal and very briefly summarize the pre-Iqbal circuit consensus on supervisory liability. In Part III, I delve more deeply into the nature of supervisory liability and conclude that the ...
