Lecture: Integrating Patent Law And The Corporation: The Walker Digital Approach, Dean Alderucci Jan 2000

Lecture: Integrating Patent Law And The Corporation: The Walker Digital Approach, Dean Alderucci

Yale Journal of Law and Technology

In the first half of my talk, I will discuss the integration of the legal requirements that the patent system imposes on corporations, and I will contrast the traditional approach, or the approach that is adopted by most corporations, with the approach I deem the optimal approach, the “Walker Digital Approach.” That approach evolves continually, so it is flexible and it adapts to the way things should be when you have patent law and patent procedures in mind. The second half of my talk will focus more on Walker Digital itself, and the policies that position Walker Digital as a ...


Lecture: Foucault In Cyberspace, James Boyle Jan 2000

Lecture: Foucault In Cyberspace, James Boyle

Yale Journal of Law and Technology

I’m going to talk today about the Internet in relation to political theory and, in particular, to libertarianism.

Anyone who has spent time on the Net or who has read the writings of Internet gurus knows that the default set of political assumptions on the Internet is a libertarian set of arguments. In fact, if you had to come up with a technology-or more expansively, a space-that makes libertarianism attractive, it would be the Internet. The Net mirrors some of the more popular libertarian images of the good society. The Net was formed through a relatively decentralized and anarchic ...

Student Works: Free Speech On The Internet: Does The First Amendment Protect The “Nuremburg Files”?, John P. Cronan

Yale Journal of Law and Technology

Few, if any, political debates kindle stronger convictions and more impassioned activism than abortion. Every year, approximately 50,000 abortion activists assemble at the annual “March for Life” in Washington. Members of Congress are inundated with calls and letters from constituents expressing their views on abortion. The entrances of abortion clinics across the country are routinely blockaded by picket lines of protesters. Still other activists channel their convictions through service, ranging from volunteering at pro-life counseling clinics to caring for foster children. While most abortion activists choose peaceful demonstration, the sad reality is that a small group of extremists consider ...


Lecture: Netscape And The Law In The Information Age, Roberta Katz Jan 2000

Lecture: Netscape And The Law In The Information Age, Roberta Katz

Yale Journal of Law and Technology

Being the general counsel at Netscape was fascinating because Netscape has been involved in many of the most pressing issues concerning the Internet-contracts, copyright, encryption, and privacy, to name a few. The experiences of Netscape show how technology is once again forcing our leaders to deal with many complex issues that make us turn yet again to examine the first principles that have been debated since the founding of our country.


Lecture: Legal Alchemy: The Use And Misuse Of Science In The Law, David L. Faigman Jan 2000

Lecture: Legal Alchemy: The Use And Misuse Of Science In The Law, David L. Faigman

Yale Journal of Law and Technology

Whenever I tell people that I am involved in the area of law and science, they become perplexed. They ask, “What does science have to do with law? Where is there any science in the legal field?” I want to emphasize the fact that science is everywhere. There is no aspect of the law today, whether civil or criminal law, where an education in basic scientific methods would not greatly improve the effectiveness of legal advocacy and policymaking.

I have three objectives for my talk today. First, I will outline the various uses of science in the law. Second, I ...
