An Unsealed Package: The Ninth Circuit Creates A Circuit Split When Interpreting Fda Regulations On Food Label Nutrient Content Claims In Reid V. Johnson & Johnson, Danielle M. Haikal 2016 Boston College Law School

An Unsealed Package: The Ninth Circuit Creates A Circuit Split When Interpreting Fda Regulations On Food Label Nutrient Content Claims In Reid V. Johnson & Johnson, Danielle M. Haikal

Boston College Law Review

On March 13, 2015, in Reid v. Johnson & Johnson, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit held that the statement “No Trans Fat” on the label of Benecol, a food that contains between 0 and 0.5 grams of trans fat, was not a permitted nutrient content claim. The court held that such a statement made on the label was false or misleading and was therefore not authorized by Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) regulations. The court came to this conclusion despite the Third Circuit reaching the opposite conclusion in 2013, in Young v. Johnson & Johnson, regarding ...

Understanding Privacy Policies: Content, Self-Regulation, And Markets, Florencia Marotta-Wurgler 2016 NYU School of Law

Understanding Privacy Policies: Content, Self-Regulation, And Markets, Florencia Marotta-Wurgler

New York University Law and Economics Working Papers

The current regulatory approach to consumer information privacy is based on a “notice and choice” self-regulation model, but commentators disagree on its impact. I conduct a comprehensive empirical analysis of 261 privacy policies across seven markets and measure the extent to which they comply with the self-regulatory guidelines of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), US-EU Safe Harbor Agreement, and others. I track terms involving notice, data collection, sharing, enforcement, security, and other practices, and create a measure of substantive protections. The average policy complies with 39% of the FTC guidelines issued in 2012, and there is no evidence that firms ...


Mobile Banking: The Answer For The Unbanked In America?, Catherine Martin Christopher 2016 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law

Mobile Banking: The Answer For The Unbanked In America?, Catherine Martin Christopher

Catholic University Law Review

In the United States, the poor often lack access to mainstream banking services. Instead, they rely on expensive, poorly regulated alternatives like check cashers, payday lenders, pawnshops, and auto title lenders. These financial products jeopardize poor people’s financial and physical security. In pushing adoption of traditional banking products, both government officials and private enterprise have attempted to craft solutions to the banking access problem, but so far these attempts have fallen short. This Article asserts that mobile banking may be a transformative technology that can significantly increase financial inclusion in the United States.

The Article discusses current statistics and ...

El Impacto De La Implantación De Una “Economía Circular” Para La Industria Alimentaria En La Unión Europea, Luis Vaqué 2016 Asociación Iberoamericana para el Dereho Alimentario

El Impacto De La Implantación De Una “Economía Circular” Para La Industria Alimentaria En La Unión Europea, Luis Vaqué

Luis González Vaqué

Cabe preguntarse cuál será el seguimiento ‘real’ de la Comunicación de la Comisión al Parlamento Europeo, al Consejo, al Comité Económico y Social Europeo y al Comité de las Regiones titulada “Cerrar el círculo: un plan de acción de la UE para la economía circular”. De su lectura se deduce que la Comisión está dispuesta a llevar a cabo una «… transición a una economía más circular, en la cual el valor de los productos, los materiales y los recursos se mantenga en la economía durante el mayor tiempo posible, y en la que se reduzca al mínimo la generación de ...
