The Lawyer As Public Figure For First Amendment Purposes, Alex B. Long 2016 University of Tennessee College of Law

The Lawyer As Public Figure For First Amendment Purposes, Alex B. Long

Boston College Law Review

Should lawyers be treated as public figures for purposes of defamation claims and, therefore, be subjected to a higher evidentiary standard of actual malice under the Supreme Court’s decision in New York Times Co. v. Sullivan? The question of whether lawyers should be treated as public figures raises broad questions about the nature of defamation law and the legal profession. By examining the Supreme Court’s defamation jurisprudence through the lens of cases involving lawyers as plaintiffs, one can see the deficiencies and inconsistencies in the Court’s opinions more clearly. And by examining the Court’s defamation cases ...


“Time Works Changes”: Modernizing Fourth Amendment Law To Protect Cell Site Location Information, Alexander Porter 2016 Boston College Law School

“Time Works Changes”: Modernizing Fourth Amendment Law To Protect Cell Site Location Information, Alexander Porter

Boston College Law Review

In 2012, federal juries convicted two men of armed robbery based in part on historical cell site location information (“CSLI”) evidence. Historical CSLI can reproduce a person’s location with great specificity. Cell phone users generate CSLI automatically by operating their cellular phones. These facts raise serious privacy concerns. This Note argues that Congress must take action to ensure that law enforcement agents can access a suspect’s historical CSLI only after a neutral magistrate finds probable cause that a crime has been committed. Further, this Note argues that because cell phone users do not voluntarily convey CSLI to their ...


Can I Skype My Doctor? Limited Medicare Coverage Hinders Telemedicine’S Potential To Improve Health Care Access, Hana Sahdev 2016 Boston College Law School

Can I Skype My Doctor? Limited Medicare Coverage Hinders Telemedicine’S Potential To Improve Health Care Access, Hana Sahdev

Boston College Law Review

Telemedicine services, such as virtual consultations and remote patient monitoring, are revolutionizing health care delivery. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (“ACA”) promotes the use of technology in health care reform as a means to increase quality and access while reducing costs. Despite the excitement around telemedicine, the lack of Medicare reimbursement hinders access and innovation. This Note analyzes the utilization of telemedicine to promote health care access for Medicare beneficiaries, and argues that legislative and regulatory changes are needed to reconcile current Medicare policies with the ACA’s encouragement of using telemedicine services. Specifically, this Note ...


Should Youtube’S Content Id Be Liable For Misrepresentation Under The Digital Millennium Copyright Act?, Laura Zapata-Kim 2016 Boston College Law School

Should Youtube’S Content Id Be Liable For Misrepresentation Under The Digital Millennium Copyright Act?, Laura Zapata-Kim

Boston College Law Review

YouTube has quickly become the dominant player in the Internet video sharing platform market. To keep its leading position, it created an internal automated system to police potential copyright infringements known as Content ID. Generally, that system functions similarly to third-party computer automated systems that send takedown requests, yet it is exempt from liability for removing lawful videos under a safe harbor provided by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (“DMCA”). Although some industry experts first championed Content ID, many now question whether it unfairly favors copyright holders and YouTube itself at the expense of content creators and the ...

Pactes D'Actionnaires Et Prévention Des Conflits Dans La Société Anonyme De L'Espace Ohada., Julien Coomlan Hounkpe 2016 University of Abomey Calavi, Benin

Pactes D'Actionnaires Et Prévention Des Conflits Dans La Société Anonyme De L'Espace Ohada., Julien Coomlan Hounkpe

Julien C. Hounkpe

L’expérience enseigne que les pactes d’actionnaires sont le plus souvent méconnus ou insuffisamment utilisés dans les sociétés anonymes en Afrique. Or ces instruments conventionnels permettent de mettre en place un certain nombre de mécanismes qui s’avéreraient efficaces dans la prévention des conflits entre actionnaires dans l’espace OHADA.


The Silence After The Beep: Envisioning An Emergency Information System To Serve The Visually Impaired, Elana Reman 2016 Duke Law

The Silence After The Beep: Envisioning An Emergency Information System To Serve The Visually Impaired, Elana Reman

Duke Law & Technology Review

Due to a series of legal and regulatory setbacks, media accessibility regulations for consumers who are blind and visually impaired have lagged significantly behind those for deaf individuals. Until April 2014, when the Federal Communications Commission’s Emergency Information Order took effect, blind consumers were left “in the dark” when their safety mattered most—during weather emergencies—because visual emergency information displayed in the on-screen crawl during television programming was not accessible in an aural format. The Commission now mandates that this information be provided in an aural form through the secondary audio stream for linear programming viewed on televisions ...

Aproximación A Los Delitos Relacionados Con Material Pornográfico En El Código Penal Alemán (§184 Stgb), Dario Nicolas Rolon

Dario Nicolas Rolon

Numerosos interrogantes se plantean en la jurisprudencia frente a viejos problemas que surjen con motivo de las nuevas tecnologías y que, como paso previo, ameritan una serie de trabajos previos, entre ellos, un planteo de las cuestiones relevantes que surgen de la lectura del nuevo §184 StGB. No se hará un examen exhaustivo de todas las cuestiones inherentes a estos delitos, sino que únicamente se indicarán las cuestiones más relevantes que surgen de una primera aproximación al tema, y, que, por lo tanto, preparan el terreno para un estudio posterior de mayor profundidad, de manera que los elementos relativos a ...


The Fcc And The “Pre-Internet”, John Blevins 2016 Loyola University School of Law - New Orleans

The Fcc And The “Pre-Internet”, John Blevins

Indiana Law Journal

Network neutrality has dominated broadband policy debates for the past decade. While important, network neutrality overshadows other policy levers that are equally important to the goals of better, cheaper, and more open broadband service. This lack of perspective has historical precedent—and understanding this history can help refocus today’s policy debate. In the 1960s and 1970s, telephone companies threatened the growth of the nascent data industry. The FCC responded with a series of rulemakings known as the “Computer Inquiries” proceedings. In the literature, Computer Inquiries enjoys hallowed status as a key foundation of the Internet’s rise.

Bringing Full Disclosure Back: A Call For Dismantling Foia, Daxton R. Stewart, Charles N. Davis 2016 University of Georgia

Bringing Full Disclosure Back: A Call For Dismantling Foia, Daxton R. Stewart, Charles N. Davis

Daxton R Stewart

Fifty years of experience have taught us that the federal Freedom of Information Act is in desperate need of an overhaul, one that goes beyond tinkering with exemptions and updating wording in the presumption of openness, if it is going to live up to Congress' intent of providing "full disclosure" of federal agencies. With an eye toward maximizing the benefits of electronic record-keeping and proactive disclosure, we propose dismantling FOIA and replacing it with a law guided by the following three principles: (1) Government records should be open and accessible by the public from the moment of creation, using ...

The Nlrb's Purple Communications Decision: Email, Property, And The Changing Patterns Of Industrial Life, Josh Carroll 2016 Duke Law

The Nlrb's Purple Communications Decision: Email, Property, And The Changing Patterns Of Industrial Life, Josh Carroll

Duke Law & Technology Review

On December 11th, 2014, in a much-anticipated case, the National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”) held in a 3-2 decision that employees with access to an employer’s email system had a presumptive right to use that email system during non-working time under Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act (“NLRA”). In an attempt to adapt to the “changing patterns of industrial life,” the NLRB reversed a seven-year precedent by overturning In re Guard Publ'g Co., 351 N.L.R.B. 1110 (2007), and thereby gave employees the statutory right to use employer email systems for non-business purposes. This ...


The Freedom Of Speech In Public Forums On College Campuses: A Single-Site Case Study On Pushing The Boundaries Of The Freedom Of Speech, Alexander Davidson 2016 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

The Freedom Of Speech In Public Forums On College Campuses: A Single-Site Case Study On Pushing The Boundaries Of The Freedom Of Speech, Alexander Davidson

Journalism

The purpose of this single-site study is to test how far speech can be pushed before it is no longer protected at the California Polytechnic State University. The purpose isn’t merely to push limitations for the sake of testing boundaries, but it is to see what types of speech truly add to the marketplace of ideas and what types simply do not. The main points of the study are to understand what speech is protected and what speech is not protected on California Polytechnic State University’s campus and to understand how the provocation that comes along with “negative ...
