The Rise Of The Global South, The Imf And The Future Of Law And Development, Gabriel Garcia 2016 University of Wollongong

The Rise Of The Global South, The Imf And The Future Of Law And Development, Gabriel Garcia

Dr Gabriel Garcia

After the onset of the Asian Financial Crisis, the world has witnessed a re-accommodation of the global financial system. In the particular case of middle-income countries, they have disentangled themselves from the conditionality of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and grown into more assertive actors in international forums, proposing new alternative mechanisms to become more financially independent and for the provision of development assistance. The article critically reviews the new reality by assessing the strategies deployed by developing countries to reduce the IMF’s influence and explores the potential consequences of the rise of middle-income nations for Law and Development.

Twenty Years Of Trips, Twenty Years Of Debate: The Extension Of High Level Protection Of Geographical Indications – Arguments, State Of Negotiations And Prospects, Friederike Frantz

Annual Survey of International & Comparative Law

This paper illustrates the current protection of Geographical Indications (GIs) in TRIPS, the arguments of the parties for and against the high level protection extension and the state of negotiations, with a focus on the European Union (EU) and the U.S. as major advocates for each side of the discussion. The paper examines the prospects of a potential agreement in the extension debate within the WTO and looks at the influence of free trade agreements on the GI extension issue.

Post-Kirtsaeng, 'Material Differences' Between Copyright And Trademark Law's Treatment Of Gray Goods Persist, Charles E. Colman 2016 NYU School of Law

Post-Kirtsaeng, 'Material Differences' Between Copyright And Trademark Law's Treatment Of Gray Goods Persist, Charles E. Colman

Charles Colman

The U.S. Supreme Court’s recent ruling in Kirtsaeng v. John Wiley & Sons would seem no trivial event for stakeholders in content-reliant industries. The upshot of the Court’s decision — that the Copyright Act cannot be used to prevent the unauthorized importation of copies of works, even if manufactured abroad, whose “first sale” has already occurred — will, at least initially, throw a wrench into many companies’ existing business models.

As one would expect, commentary on the decision has been extensive. With few exceptions, however, commentators attempting to predict the impact of Kirtsaeng have not looked beyond copyright law to ...

Controversy Over Information Privacy Arising From The Taiwan National Health Insurance Database Examining The Taiwan Taipei High Administrative Court Judgement No. 102-Su-36 (Tsai V. Nhia), Chen-Hung Chang 2016 American University Washington College of Law

Controversy Over Information Privacy Arising From The Taiwan National Health Insurance Database Examining The Taiwan Taipei High Administrative Court Judgement No. 102-Su-36 (Tsai V. Nhia), Chen-Hung Chang

Pace International Law Review

This article examines the limitations of the application of traditional information privacy theory to disputes relating to modern technologies. If information privacy is understood as an individual’s right to full control over his information, activities involving the collection, process and use of personal data cannot be conducted without the data subject’s consent because his privacy rights would be affected as a result of such activities. Instead of the privacy interest approach, this article introduces a privacy harm approach to reconcile the defects of traditional privacy theory. The privacy interest approach helps identify situations in which an individual’s ...


Good Faith – The Gordian Knot Of International Commerce, Bruno Zeller, Camilla Baasch Andersen 2016 University of Western Australia

Good Faith – The Gordian Knot Of International Commerce, Bruno Zeller, Camilla Baasch Andersen

Pace International Law Review

This paper argues that good faith cannot be defined and furthermore that there is no need to define good faith as it takes on meaning when applied to facts. Hence an explanation or application of good faith is defined by its function namely to enforce the expected performance of both parties. It is further argued that the function of good faith will determine which fact pattern has to be found by a court in order to determine the expected performance of the contractual parties. It follows that good faith is the legal concept which allows courts to do justice and ...

International Economic Law And Governance-- Essays In Honour Of Mitsuo Matsushita, Julien Chaisse 2016 Chinese University of Hong Kong

International Economic Law And Governance-- Essays In Honour Of Mitsuo Matsushita, Julien Chaisse

Julien Chaisse

Nation states have long and successfully claimed to be the proper and sovereign forum for determining a country's international economic policies. Increasingly, however, supranational and non-governmental actors are moving to the front of the stage. New forms of multilateral and global policy-making have emerged, including states and national administrations, key international organizations, international conferences, multinational enterprises, and a wide range of transnational pressure groups and NGOs that all claim their share in exercising power and influence on international and domestic policy-making.

In honour of Professor Mitsuo Matsushita's intellectual contributions to the field of international economic law, this volume ...
