Demanding Supply: The Bioenergy Farm Lease’S Critical Role In Biomass Supply Chain Optimization, A. Bryan Endres, Elise C. Scott 2014 SelectedWorks

Demanding Supply: The Bioenergy Farm Lease’S Critical Role In Biomass Supply Chain Optimization, A. Bryan Endres, Elise C. Scott

A. Bryan Endres

As the bioenergy industry in the U.S. expands to meet increased demands for transportation fuel under the Renewable Fuel Standard and electrical power under state Renewable Portfolio Standards, farmers will seek the ability to grow dedicated, high-yielding energy crops of a perennial nature on leased property. Given the large amount of farmland in the U.S. that is leased, such contributions will represent a significant, though currently not well understood, portion of the biofuel industry supply chain. Through the use of contracts as governance schemes, the parties to a bioenergy farm lease can navigate three key areas of such ...


Facilitating The Commons Inside Out, Hanoch Dagan, Tsilly Dagan 2014 BLR

Facilitating The Commons Inside Out, Hanoch Dagan, Tsilly Dagan

Tel Aviv University Law Faculty Papers

Commons property is a true challenge to the law, especially in a legal context that respects individual mobility, which is key to freedom and autonomy. While a tragedy of the commons is not inevitable, the sustainability – let alone flourishing – of the commons is far from obvious either. But the rewards of the latter trajectory are critical: a successful commons property can generate significant economic benefits, due to its intrinsic advantages of economies of scale, risk-spreading, specialization, and synergy. These benefits multiply in the context of social commons property regimes that function as the loci and engines of meaningful interpersonal relationships ...


Hiding The Ball: The Sidestepping Of National Pollution Discharge Elimination System Permitting Requirements By Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations, Adam S. Carlesco 2014 SelectedWorks

Hiding The Ball: The Sidestepping Of National Pollution Discharge Elimination System Permitting Requirements By Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations, Adam S. Carlesco

Adam S Carlesco

Concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) are one of the few point sources under Clean Water Act jurisdiction that are not required to meet more stringent NPDES permitting requirements. After a series of court cases, the EPA proposed rulemaking requiring the submission of information by CAFO operators to create a national database of CAFO locations and operation information, yet that rulemaking was subsequently abandoned. This paper proposes that EPA implement the proposedreporting requirements put forth in their 2010 settlement agreement with environmental petitioners.


Pride And Profit: Geographical Indications As Regional Development Tools In Australia, William Van Caenegem, Jen A. Cleary, Peter Drahos 2014 Southern Cross University

Pride And Profit: Geographical Indications As Regional Development Tools In Australia, William Van Caenegem, Jen A. Cleary, Peter Drahos

Journal of Economic and Social Policy

Geographical Indications (GIs) are intellectual property rights in placenames that evoke the typical qualities of agricultural products and foodstuffs that originate in particular districts. Presently, the EU is the dominant holder of protected GIs and the EU asserts that they are used extensively and effectively in EU countries as a rural and regional development tool. To date, Australia's response to GIs has largely been driven by perceptions of their impact upon trade gains and losses. Currently, Australia only has legal protection for wine-related GI's because of an agreement with the EU.

Given an increased focus on GIs internationally ...

International Economic Law And The Right To Food, Carmen G. Gonzalez

Carmen G. Gonzalez

This chapter examines the historic and current policies and practices that have contributed to food insecurity in the global South.

Part I provides a short introduction to the right to food framework and its implications for international trade, investment, and finance. Part II places the current food crisis in historical perspective by discussing the trade and aid policies that ...


Food For Thought: Genetically Modified Seeds As De Facto Standard Essential Patents, Benjamin M. Cole, Brent J. Horton, Ryan G. Vacca 2014 The University of Akron School of Law

Food For Thought: Genetically Modified Seeds As De Facto Standard Essential Patents, Benjamin M. Cole, Brent J. Horton, Ryan G. Vacca

Ryan G. Vacca

For several years, courts have been improperly calculating damages in cases involving the unlicensed use of genetically-modified (GM) seed technology. In particular, when courts determine patent damages based on the hypothetical negotiation method, they err in exaggerating these damages to a point where no rational negotiator would agree. In response, we propose a limited affirmative defense of an implied license due to the patent’s status as a de facto standard essential patent. To be classified as a de facto standard essential patent, the farmer must prove three elements that reflect the peculiarities of GM seeds used in farming: (1 ...


Environmental Sustainability Criteria In The Coffee Sector – Lessons That Can Be Learnt, Evgenia Pavlovskaia 2014 Lund University, Faculty of Law

Environmental Sustainability Criteria In The Coffee Sector – Lessons That Can Be Learnt, Evgenia Pavlovskaia

Evgenia Pavlovskaia

In the article, the issue of environmental sustainability criteria in the coffee sector is researched. Such important aspects in this topic are highlighted and discussed as reasons for the emergence of sustainability criteria for coffee and factors that make the production of coffee sustainable. Two widely used sustainability standards for coffee, the Fair Trade Coffee sustainability standard and the Utz Certified Coffee sustainability standard, are investigated more precisely. The environmental requirements of these standards in the form of environmental sustainability criteria, and mechanisms to control their fulfilment are outlined. The issue of control is separately highlighted, because it is considered ...
