The Northeast Asian Seas: The Regional Legal Instruments Of Cooperation For Marine Environment And Sustainable Development, Young K. Kim Dec 2000

The Northeast Asian Seas: The Regional Legal Instruments Of Cooperation For Marine Environment And Sustainable Development, Young K. Kim

Young K Kim

The Asia Pacific region is characterized by a number of features which give prominence and unique significance in relation with the marine environment issues. As a result of rapid growth in population, economy, and political maturity, marine environment protection and resource management have emerged as a vital task for the individual nations, as well as the Asia Pacific region as a whole. The concerned riparian States of the Northeast Asian Seas have been fully aware of the immediate relevance of the target conception, "the sustainable development" for their economic development and environment policy. Since 1992 Rio UNCED, they have endeavored ...


The Owned Public Domain: The Constitutional Right Not To Be Excluded – Or The Supreme Court Chose The Right Breakfast Cereal In Kellogg V. National Biscuit Co., Malla Pollack Oct 2000

The Owned Public Domain: The Constitutional Right Not To Be Excluded – Or The Supreme Court Chose The Right Breakfast Cereal In Kellogg V. National Biscuit Co., Malla Pollack

Malla Pollack

Before the rise of law and economics, the Supreme Court decided several cases involving patent holders' attempts to use trademark doctrines to slow down competitors after the expiration of their utility patents; in each of these cases, the Court enforced a public right to use material in the public domain. To give one famous example, Kellogg Co. v. National Biscuit Co., the "shredded wheat case," came to the Court after the expiration of a product and process utility patent on that once-innovative breakfast cereal. The Court held that a competitor could freely copy the product's name and its well ...

Rights And Obligations Of Third Parties, Aristides N. Hatzis Sep 2000

Rights And Obligations Of Third Parties, Aristides N. Hatzis

Aristides N. Hatzis

Three different issues, related to third party involvement in a contractual relationship, are examined. The first two (assignment of contractual rights/delegation of contractual duties and third-party beneficiary contracts) are examined in a unified way. After pointing to the striking similarity between beneficiary and assignment contracts, we discuss the non-simultaneous assent argument, the danger of creating open classes of beneficiaries without the intention of the contracting parties, and other problems. In a second part, we deal with the controversial issue of efficient breach due to inducement by a third party. After reviewing the literature, we briefly consider the use of ...


The Demidenko Affair: Copyright Law, Plagiarism, And Ridicule, Matthew Rimmer Sep 2000

The Demidenko Affair: Copyright Law, Plagiarism, And Ridicule, Matthew Rimmer

Matthew Rimmer

This article provides an account of one of Australia's great literary hoaxes - the Demidenko affair. In particular, it focuses upon the accusations that Helen Darville plagiarised a number of historical and literary texts in her novel, The Hand That Signed The Paper. This article considers how the dispute was interpreted in three different contexts - the literary community, the legal system, and the media. Part 1 examines how writers, publishers, and editors understood the controversy in terms of the aesthetics and ethics of plagiarism. Part 2 details how lawyers framed the discussion in light of economic rights and moral rights ...

The Constitutional Implications Of Race-Neutral Affirmative Action, Kim Forde-Mazrui Aug 2000

The Constitutional Implications Of Race-Neutral Affirmative Action, Kim Forde-Mazrui

Kim Forde-Mazrui

This paper explores the constitutional implications of race-neutral affirmative action, i.e., governmental efforts to pursue affirmative action goals, such as remedying discrimination and promoting diversity, through non-racial means. For example, to increase minority enrollment, some public universities give weight in the admission process to economic background. This paper suggests that such "race-neutral" policies may be just as unconstitutional as racial preferences if they are motivated by arguably discriminatory (against whites) purposes. I then present two doctrinal defenses of race-neutral affirmative action. First, assuming that strict scrutiny would apply to such policies, I argue that remedying discrimination, even so-called "societal ...

Access To Justice In India: Exploring Grassroots Perspectives, Maurya Vijay Chandra Jun 2000

Access To Justice In India: Exploring Grassroots Perspectives, Maurya Vijay Chandra

Maurya Vijay Chandra

Measurement of access to justice has acquired increased significance in South Asia, especially as many national initiatives on access to justice are being funded by international agencies. However, the perspectives of the people at the grassroots nave not sufficiently been explored in either conceptualising access to justice or developing indicators for measuring it. It was with the hope that discussion of these issues mignt provide a fresh insight into measuring access to justice that I conducted 18 focus-group discussions in six towns and cities in India.

What Happened And What To Do? (Concerning The Cyanide Pollution Of Szamos And Tisza Rivers), Milan Meszaros May 2000

What Happened And What To Do? (Concerning The Cyanide Pollution Of Szamos And Tisza Rivers), Milan Meszaros

Milan Meszaros physicist

Joining the EU demands rapid changes and revolutionary transformation in Hungary. We have to mention a Theorem :(Alvin Toffler): Rapid changes and revolutionary transformations are accompanied by crises and instability.

Because crises and instability is no one's interest, it is necessary to think and act efficiently together in order to minimise the (economic) burdens on the country. Joining the EU and innovation are two sides of a coin, international and national projections of the same process. On the national side innovation minimises the burdens. The innovation means that the environment protection must be moved from cost/expenditure side to ...

Avoiding Malpractice Traps In Noncash Charitable Contributions, Francine J. Lipman Jan 2000

Avoiding Malpractice Traps In Noncash Charitable Contributions, Francine J. Lipman

Francine J. Lipman

Substance usually rules over form, but form is a very necessary and critical component of any tax practice. This maxim is especially true when taxpayers claim tax deductions for the FMV of their noncash charitable contributions. As the recent Tax Court decision in Hewitt v. Commissioner, 109 T.C. 258 (1997), and that decision's subsequent affirmation, 166 F.3d 332, 98-2 U.S.T.C. (CCH) P50,880 (4th Cir. 1998), demonstrate, taxpayers must follow very detailed and technical rules to substantiate deductions for charitable contributions of property. The Internal Revenue Service and the courts have confirmed that unless ...
