The Alliance Of Small Island States: Intellectual Property, Cultural Heritage, And Climate Change, Matthew Rimmer 2017 Queensland University of Technology

The Alliance Of Small Island States: Intellectual Property, Cultural Heritage, And Climate Change, Matthew Rimmer

Matthew Rimmer

This article will consider the role of AOSIS in debates over intellectual property, the environment, and climate change. It will consider questions of technology transfer, climate justice, and intergenerational equity. This article will conclude that there is a need for AOSIS to bolster its position on intellectual property, technology transfer, access to genetic resources, and Indigenous Knowledge. Moreover, the group could seek to benefit from the development of international networks – such as the Technology Mechanism established under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change 1992, and the Global Indigenous Network announced by Australia at the Rio 20 discussions on ...


Are They Pirates Or Pioneers?, Ashley Song 2017 University of Pennsylvania (2012)

Are They Pirates Or Pioneers?, Ashley Song

Hyein Ashley Song Ms.

Korea has the perceptive corruption level lower than the Western countries and shares the common appetite for the cultural products with the Japanese, often regarding Japanese more noble or superior and Westerns even more. Based on this sentiment, the ‘license musicals’ which have been bilaterally purchased from the West are popularly consumed in Korea. The paper calls this is not the cultural business, but the “self-confined cripples’ money party based on the informational deceptions.” The Korean licensee who has fueled the staggering production in the US transforms to the businessmen, caster, and producer in Korea . The licensed dramatico-musical transforms to ...

Manhattan_Project.Exe: A Nuclear Option For The Digital Age, David Laton

Catholic University Journal of Law and Technology

This article explores the possible implications and consequences arising from the use of an artificial intelligence construct as a weapon of mass destruction. The digital age has ushered in many technological advances, as well as certain dangers. Chief among these pitfalls is the lack of reliable security found in critical information technology systems. These security gaps can give cybercriminals unauthorized access to highly sensitive computer networks that control the very infrastructure of the United States. Cyberattacks are rising in both frequency and severity and the response by the U.S. has been ineffective. A cyber-weapon of mass destruction (CWMD) implementing ...

How Many Likes Did It Get? Using Social Media Metrics To Establish Trademark Rights, Caroline Mrohs

Catholic University Journal of Law and Technology

This comment asserts that there is a need for an update to the multifactor test considered by courts in determining the strength of a trademark. Traditional factors include the expenses an entity can afford to pay in advertising, but do not give any weight to the presence of the entity on social media to reach its target consumer group.

Personal Jurisdiction In Hatch-Waxman Cases, Michael Marusak 2017 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law

Personal Jurisdiction In Hatch-Waxman Cases, Michael Marusak

Catholic University Law Review

The Hatch-Waxman Act drastically altered the way pioneer and generic pharmaceutical manufacturers litigate patent infringement disputes, allowing generic manufacturers to submit an abbreviated new drug application (ANDA) to the FDA, which states that it intends make a chemical equivalent of a patent owner’s drug. When the ANDA is accompanied by a Paragraph IV certification, representing that the generic intends to market the drug before the patent’s expiration because it believes the patent is invalid or will not be infringed by the generic’s drug, the ANDA submission itself creates an “artificial” act of infringement. With the Supreme Court ...

How Could An Open Access Scholarly Journal System Look? A Scenario Analysis, Maurits Van Der Graaf, Leo Waaijers

Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.

Ralf Schimmer’s blog “Making the moves for large scale transition toward Open Access” makes the case to achieve such a transition by means of offsetting deals. The urgency for such a transition is emphasized by the recently announced ambition of the EU to have “Open Access to scientific publications as the best option by default by 2020”i. This should be done “in a cost-effective way, without embargoes, or with as short as possible embargoes”. In this blog, we explore and analyse the scenario whereby this transition will be brought about by successful offsetting deals, meaning that ultimately all ...


Has The Academy Led Patent Law Astray?, Jonathan M. Barnett 2017 University of Southern California

Has The Academy Led Patent Law Astray?, Jonathan M. Barnett

University of Southern California Legal Studies Working Paper Series

Scholarly commentary widely asserts that technology markets suffer from a triplet of adverse effects arising from the strong patent regime associated with the establishment of the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in 1982: “patent thickets” that burden innovation with transaction and litigation costs; “patent holdup” resulting in excessive payouts to opportunistic patent holders; and “royalty stacking” resulting in exorbitant patent licensing fees. Together these effects purportedly depress innovation and inflate prices for end-users. These repeated assertions are inconsistent with the continuing robust output, declining prices and rapid innovation observed in the most patent-intensive technology markets during the more ...


Can Scientists And Their Institutions Become Their Own Open Access Publishers?, Karen Shashok 2017 Translator and Editorial Consultant, Granada, Spain

Can Scientists And Their Institutions Become Their Own Open Access Publishers?, Karen Shashok

Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.

This article offers a personal perspective on the current state of academic publishing, and posits that the scientific community is beset with journals that contribute little valuable knowledge, overload the community’s capacity for high-quality peer review, and waste resources. Open access publishing can offer solutions that benefit researchers and other information users, as well as institutions and funders, but commercial journal publishers have influenced open access policies and practices in ways that favor their economic interests over those of other stakeholders in knowledge creation and sharing. One way to free research from constraints on access is the diamond route ...


Down The Rabbit Hole: Who Will Stand Up For Software Patents After Alice?, Daniel Taylor 2017 University of Maine School of Law

Down The Rabbit Hole: Who Will Stand Up For Software Patents After Alice?, Daniel Taylor

Maine Law Review

In June 2014, the Supreme Court changed patent law completely when it issued a decision in Alice Corporation v. CLS Bank International. In one fell swoop, the Court cast doubt on the validity and enforceability of hundreds of thousands of issued software and technology patents. Since the Alice decision, federal district courts have applied the Alice test and have already invalidated more than one hundred software patents as a matter of law. This Comment discusses why the Alice decision expands the judicial doctrine of creating "exceptions" to the Patent Act, and shifts the statutory factual inquiry of "obviousness" into a ...


Copyright Severability: The Hurdle Between 3d-Printing And Mass Crowdsourced Innovation, Alan Fu 2017 Duke Law

Copyright Severability: The Hurdle Between 3d-Printing And Mass Crowdsourced Innovation, Alan Fu

Duke Law & Technology Review

3D-printing is gradually becoming widely accessible to the population, and with accessibility come enthusiasm, participation, and ingenuity. Its continued development reflects a potential surge in technological advancement, bestowing on any person with a computer and the right software the ability to design and create. So far, the utilitarian benefits of designs such as blueprints, schematics, and CAD files have always been safeguarded from copyright over-protection through the doctrine of copyright severability. However, the doctrine is applied inconsistently across different circuits and different factual scenarios. This inconsistency can chill innovation by making it impossible to distinguish aesthetic designs protected by copyright ...

The Market For Software Innovation Through The Lens Of Patent Licenses And Sales, Colleen V. Chien 2017 Santa Clara University School of Law

The Market For Software Innovation Through The Lens Of Patent Licenses And Sales, Colleen V. Chien

Faculty Publications

Software innovation is transforming the US economy. Yet our understanding of how patents and patent transactions support this innovation is limited, in part because of a lack of public information about patent licenses and sales. Claims about the patent marketplace, for example, extolling the virtues of intermediaries like non-practicing entities, or questioning the social utility of ex post patent licenses, tend not to be grounded in empirical evidence. This article brings much-needed data to the policy debate by analyzing transactional data from several proprietary databases of patent licenses and transfers, and reporting several novel findings. First I find that, despite ...

What We Buy When We "Buy Now", Aaron Perzanowski, Chris Jay Hoofnagle 2016 Case Western Reserve University

What We Buy When We "Buy Now", Aaron Perzanowski, Chris Jay Hoofnagle

Aaron K. Perzanowski

Retailers such as Apple and Amazon market digital media to consumers using the familiar language of product ownership, including phrases like “buy now,” “own,” and “purchase.” Consumers may understandably associate such language with strong personal property rights. But the license agreements and terms of use associated with these transactions tell a different story. They explain that ebooks, mp3 albums, digital movies, games, and software are not sold, but merely licensed. The terms limit consumers' ability to resell, lend, transfer, and even retain possession of the digital media they acquire. Moreover, unlike physical media products, access to digital media is contingent ...


Reforming And Specifying Ipr Policies Of Standard-Setting Organizations: Towards Fair And Efficient Patent Licensing And Dispute Resolution, Richard Li, Richard Li-dar Wang 2016 National Chengchi University, Taiwan

Reforming And Specifying Ipr Policies Of Standard-Setting Organizations: Towards Fair And Efficient Patent Licensing And Dispute Resolution, Richard Li, Richard Li-Dar Wang

Richard Li-dar Wang

Standard-setting organizations (SSOs) rely on commitments to license on fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory (FRAND) terms from standard-essential patent (SEP) holders to ensure access to standards and prevent potential anti-competitive conducts that unreasonably enforce SEPs against standard implementers. A substantial number of SEP disputes, however, have been raised unceasingly in recent years. In this research, a statistical analysis of the SEP litigation cases in the United States from 2000 to 2014 shows that the SEP disputes are closely related to the FRAND licensing terms that are required in the intellectual property rights (IPR) policies of the SSOs in the information and ...
