The United States, Developing Countries And The Issue Of Intra-Enterprise Agreements, Joel Davidow 2016 University of Georgia School of Law

The United States, Developing Countries And The Issue Of Intra-Enterprise Agreements, Joel Davidow

Georgia Journal of International & Comparative Law

Antitrust issues have become one of the main concern of the world economy community and the United Nations. For many years, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development has multiplied the meetings to discuss the relationship between transnational enterprises and international investment and has engaged in reflections on methods to avoid a decline in international investment. However, these meetings failed to resolve the fundamental issue of the impact of international antitrust principles on restrictive arrangements between a foreign parent corporation and its local subsidiary, particularly where that subsidiary is in a developing country. If applied, multinational enterprises would be ...


Impacto De Las Prácticas Comerciales Desleales Entre Empresas En La Cadena De Suministro Alimentario En La Unión Europea, Luis González Vaqué 2016 Asociación Iberoamericana para el Dereho Alimentario

Impacto De Las Prácticas Comerciales Desleales Entre Empresas En La Cadena De Suministro Alimentario En La Unión Europea, Luis González Vaqué

Luis González Vaqué

Como se señala en la “Introducción” de la Comunicación de la Comisión de 2014, la cadena de suministro alimentario garantiza la transmisión de productos alimenticios y bebidas al público en general para consumo personal o familiar: «afecta a todos los consumidores de la UE de manera cotidianay representa una parte significativa del presupuesto medio de los hogares». En el documento en cuestión se explica el motivo por el cual la estructura de mercado de la cadena de suministro alimentario hace que esta sea especialmente vulnerable a las prácticas comerciales desleales, y, en este sentido, la Comisión describió el perjuicio ...


L'Indicazione Dell'origine Dei Prodotti Agroalimentari Secondo Il Recente Decreto Francese Sul Latte E Sulla Carne: Quali Sviluppi Si Prevedono Nell'unione Europea?, Luis González Vaqué 2016 Asociación Iberoamericana para el Dereho Alimentario

L'Indicazione Dell'origine Dei Prodotti Agroalimentari Secondo Il Recente Decreto Francese Sul Latte E Sulla Carne: Quali Sviluppi Si Prevedono Nell'unione Europea?, Luis González Vaqué

Luis González Vaqué

Non ci stancheremo di ripeterlo: imporre l'obbligo dell'indicazione d'origine appare giuridicamente infondato, dato che nulla impedisce ai produttori di ricorrere a tale indicazione su base volontaria (e, naturalmente, veritiera) nell'intento di soddisfare quei consumatori presumibilmente preoccupati di conoscere la provenienza (nazionale o estera) degli alimenti acquistati. Infine, sembra utile un avvertimento: la menzione dell'origine, quando viene obbligatoriamente imposta, a torto o a ragione, finisce irrimediabilmente per creare una frammentazione del Mercato interno europeo.


The Politics Of Electoral Systems In The Former Yugoslav Republic Of Macedonia, Dardan Berisha 2016 Indiana University Maurer School of Law

The Politics Of Electoral Systems In The Former Yugoslav Republic Of Macedonia, Dardan Berisha

Indiana Journal of Constitutional Design

The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (“FYROM”) experienced four major changes to its electoral system in the eight parliamentary elections held between 1990 and 2014. The Macedonian 1990 and 1994 parliamentary elections were held under a majority system, in which 120 members of the Parliament were elected from 120 constituencies, one member per constituency. A mixed-majority/proportional representation (“PR”) system was adopted for the 1998 elections, in which eighty-five seats were elected under the majority system from the constituencies, and thirty-five seats were elected proportionally from a nation-wide electoral district. Yet another system was adopted for the 2002 elections, in ...


Intellectual Property Rights For Geographical Indications: What Is At Stake In The Ttip?, Luis González Vaqué, Mario Veneziani, Filippo Arfini, Maria Cecilia Mancini, Michele Donati 2016 Asociación Iberoamericana para el Dereho Alimentario

Intellectual Property Rights For Geographical Indications: What Is At Stake In The Ttip?, Luis González Vaqué, Mario Veneziani, Filippo Arfini, Maria Cecilia Mancini, Michele Donati

Luis González Vaqué

Regulations on Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) and Geographical Indications (GIs) have a long history, leading back to two separate organizations devoted to dealing with them: the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The WTO, through its 1994 TRIPS Agreement, gives wines a high level of protection, but leaves individual countries to draw up national GIs legislation for other agri-food products. On the other hand, the WIPO implemented the Lisbon Agreement of 1958 and gives GIs a high level of protection, but involves a lower number of countries. The US approach follows the WTO and is ...

¿El Decreto Francés Sobre La Obligatoriedad De Indicar El Origen De Algunos Ingredientes, Pone En Peligro El Mercado Único Alimentario?, Luis González Vaqué 2016 Asociación Iberoamericana para el Dereho Alimentario

¿El Decreto Francés Sobre La Obligatoriedad De Indicar El Origen De Algunos Ingredientes, Pone En Peligro El Mercado Único Alimentario?, Luis González Vaqué

Luis González Vaqué

En mi opinión la autorización por parte de la Comisión Europea del Decreto n° 2016-1137 es un grave error que pone efectivamente en peligro el Mercado único alimentario.
Dicha autorización ha sido otorgada por una endeble Comisión, ahora aún más debilitada por el Brexit. Además, es la consecuencia de las veleidades oportunistas relativas a la eventual indicación del origen de ciertos ingredientes incluidas en el desafortunado Reglamento (UE) n° 1169/2011 (véanse los artículos 26, y el considerando nº 59 de dicha normativa comunitaria).

Shareholder Wealth Maximization As Means To An End, Robert P. Bartlett, III 2016 Selected Works

Shareholder Wealth Maximization As Means To An End, Robert P. Bartlett, Iii

Robert Bartlett

In several recent cases, the Delaware Chancery Court has emphasized that where a conflict of interest exists between holders of a company’s common stock and holders of its preferred stock, the standard of conduct for directors requires that they strive to maximize the value of the corporation for the benefit of its common stockholders rather than for its preferred stockholders. This article interrogates this view of directors’ fiduciary duties from the perspective of incomplete contracting theory. Building on the seminal work of Sanford Grossman and Oliver Hart, incomplete contracting theory examines the critical role of corporate control rights for ...

Begging For Due Process: Defending The Rights Of Urban Outcasts In An Italian Town, Giacomo Pailli, Alessandro Simoni 2016 Seattle University School of Law

Begging For Due Process: Defending The Rights Of Urban Outcasts In An Italian Town, Giacomo Pailli, Alessandro Simoni

Seattle University Law Review

Adult begging in Italy has been decriminalized since a Constitutional Court decision in 1995 and an ensuing law, no. 205, in 1999. Nonetheless, beggars, particularly Roma ones, are still perceived by the public as a nuisance, like an issue that should be dealt with. Sensible to the pressure of its constituency, even Florence—a city with a tradition of openness and inclusion—has taken measures against begging and other similar street-level economic activities. Between 2007 and 2008, the first wave of city action in Florence was directed at windshield cleaners at traffic lights. Even though the policy was challenged, it ...


Key Flaws In The European Commission’S Proposals For Foreign Investor Protection In Ttip, Gus Van Harten 2016 Osgoode Hall Law School of York University

Key Flaws In The European Commission’S Proposals For Foreign Investor Protection In Ttip, Gus Van Harten

Gus Van Harten

In November 2015, the European Commission released a proposed text on foreign investor protection in the EU-US Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). In this paper, I outline key flaws in this proposal, including language buried in the text that significantly undermines the EC's proposed provisions on the investment court system (ICS) and on the right to regulate.


Diversity In The Boardroom: A Content Analysis Of Corporate Proxy Disclosures, Aaron A. Dhir 2016 Osgoode Hall Law School

Diversity In The Boardroom: A Content Analysis Of Corporate Proxy Disclosures, Aaron A. Dhir

Aaron A. Dhir

My work in this field has focused on regulation by quota and regulation by disclosure. With regard to quotas, strikingly, the Norwegian law is not located in regulation that explicitly deals with human rights or equality issues; rather, it is found in the heart of the legal regime that gives life and personality to corporations – in Norwegian corporate law. I have conducted qualitative, interview-based research with Norwegian corporate directors, both men and women. It is only through understanding how the goals of the law have translated into the day-to-day existence of these individuals that we can begin to consider the ...
