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 ...


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.

Revisiting Labor Mobility In Innovation Markets, Jonathan M. Barnett, Ted M. Sichelman 2016 University of Southern California

Revisiting Labor Mobility In Innovation Markets, Jonathan M. Barnett, Ted M. Sichelman

University of Southern California Legal Studies Working Paper Series

It is now widely asserted that legal regimes that enforce contractual and other limitations on labor mobility deter technological innovation. First, recent empirical studies purport to show relationships between bans on enforcing noncompete agreements, increased employee movement, and increased innovation. We find that these studies misconstrue legal differences across states and otherwise are flawed, incomplete, or limited in applicability. Second, scholars have largely adopted the view that California’s policy against noncompetes promoted Silicon Valley as the world’s leading technology center. By contrast, Massachusetts’ enforcement of noncompetes purportedly stunted innovation in the Route 128 region near Boston. We show ...

Economías Colaborativas Regulación Y Competencia, Camilo Ossa 2016 camilo.ossa@uexternado.edu.co

Economías Colaborativas Regulación Y Competencia, Camilo Ossa

Camilo Ossa

¿Puede la tecnología transformar drásticamente los mercados?La respuesta parece obvia, sin embargo, el problema no basta solo con señalarlo, sino, hay que decirlo, hoy día lo estamos viviendo y, considero yo, padeciendo, tal vez por la forma como tradicionalmente vemos, en este caso, los mercados, la competencia y la regulación.El artículo adelanta una investigación centrada en intentar entender de donde surgen estas nuevas formas de asociación en la producción, distribución, prestación y consumo de bienes y servicios, así como su impacto en la economía y, como consecuencia, la respuesta regulatoria que debería adoptarse. Son nuevos modelos que para ...

Anarchy: The Lesser Of Two Evils, Daniel Rothschild 2016 George Mason University

Anarchy: The Lesser Of Two Evils, Daniel Rothschild

Daniel Rothschild

Is the existence of the nation-state responsible for freer societies and a decrease in violence? By looking at Somalia pre-anarchy and Somalia post-anarchy allows one to do a compare and contrast to see if things improved in the state’s absence. Failures of exporting democracy and imposing law from above reveals how culture and social norms are a greater influence on people’s behavior and the type of society one lives under than government legislation. The law in the West, often considered a paragon of justice and freedom was not a creation of the state, but arose spontaneously. Commercial, merchant ...


The Shochu Conundrum: Economics And Gatt Article Iii, Alex Davis 2016 George Washington University

The Shochu Conundrum: Economics And Gatt Article Iii, Alex Davis

Undergraduate Economic Review

This paper will discuss the National Treatment (NT) obligation contained in Article III of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) 1994 as applied in precedential tax discrimination cases. Case law has not taken a firm stance on the economic versus legal interpretation of the likeness/directly competitive or substitutable (DCS) criterion or the principle of “so as to afford protection” (SATAP) captured in Article III.2. After examining the case law on discriminatory taxation, I conclude that the NT obligation in trade agreements is imperfect. Nonetheless, NT is a critical component of these agreements, and the international trade ...


Considering Consequences: Autonomy’S Missing Half, Catherine A. Hardee 2016 Pepperdine University

Considering Consequences: Autonomy’S Missing Half, Catherine A. Hardee

Pepperdine Law Review

In a subtle but discernible trend, courts, commentators, and policymakers increasingly use autonomy-based justifications to support expanding economic rights. Their use of autonomy, however, is inconsistent with the concept of traditional liberal autonomy that proponents of economic rights embrace. This is because many, if not most, economic choices have some measure of consequences ameliorated by state action. This Article exposes the conceptual incoherence of this approach and argues that these autonomy-based arguments are invalid when they fail to acknowledge the vital role consequences play in constituting liberal autonomy. It also demonstrates that the failure to account for consequences in determining ...

The Anti-Commons Revisited, Jonathan M. Barnett 2016 University of Southern California

The Anti-Commons Revisited, Jonathan M. Barnett

University of Southern California Legal Studies Working Paper Series

Intellectual property scholars and policymakers often assert that technology and creative markets suffer from “anti-commons” (“AC”) effects that restrain innovation within a web of conflicting intellectual property claims. A minority view asserts that market players have incentives and capacities to correct for AC effects through transactional solutions. To assess the relative merits of each side of this debate, I review a large and diverse body of empirical evidence relating to AC effects in contemporary and historical markets. I independently replicate the most controversial empirical findings, supplement additional research on selected markets, and provide a survey of all documented IP-pooling arrangements ...


Three Quasi-Fallacies In The Conventional Understanding Of Intellectual Property, Jonathan M. Barnett 2016 University of Southern California

Three Quasi-Fallacies In The Conventional Understanding Of Intellectual Property, Jonathan M. Barnett

University of Southern California Legal Studies Working Paper Series

In recent years the Supreme Court, Congress and the White House have taken actions designed to weaken patent rights. These actions track widely expressed views among legal and some economics scholars that cast doubt on the social value of robust intellectual property rights. These views rely on some combination of three core propositions: (i) IP rights raise entry barriers and increase costs to users; (ii) innovation often proceeds without IP rights; and (iii) IP rights usually or often entrench large incumbent firms. Using theoretical argument and empirical evidence, I show that each of these propositions is unlikely to be true ...


Foreword: Innocent Until Proven Poor, Sara Zampierin 2016 Southern Poverty Law Center

Foreword: Innocent Until Proven Poor, Sara Zampierin

Michigan Journal of Race and Law

One of the core tenets of our criminal justice system is the presumption of innocence until proven guilty. As the title of the Symposium recognizes, we have allowed our justice system to ignore that presumption for people living in poverty in a variety of ways. Instead, it often inflicts additional and harsher punishment on individuals because of their poverty.

Legal Aid's Once And Future Role For Impacting The Criminalization Of Poverty And The War On The Poor, Aneel L. Chablani

Michigan Journal of Race and Law

Recent media coverage and advocacy efforts on behalf of individuals subjected to criminal sanctions as a result of their poverty status has resulted in increased attention on this nation’s troubled history of oppression and control of the poor and people of color. At the federal, state, and local levels, a growing number of policies create criminal sanctions for poverty-related circumstances. These, in turn, result in collateral consequences that unfairly affect those who lack the means to afford their criminal justice experience (i.e., processing costs, fees, and fines), or affect their ability to access employment, housing, or other basic ...


Online Case Resolution Systems: Enhancing Access, Fairness, Accuracy, And Efficiency, Maximilian A. Bulinski, J.J. Prescott 2016 University of Michigan Law School

Online Case Resolution Systems: Enhancing Access, Fairness, Accuracy, And Efficiency, Maximilian A. Bulinski, J.J. Prescott

Michigan Journal of Race and Law

Online case resolution (OCR) systems have the potential to dramatically increase access to our justice system. Part I introduces the concept of an OCR system, how it might work in practice, and its likely impact on courts and citizens. Part II argues that OCR systems can lower many of the barriers to going to court by reducing the need for face-to-face resolution of disputes; cutting the amount of time needed for hearings; mitigating litigant confusion and fear; allowing asynchronous scheduling that can accommodate work and child-care schedules; and offering a more reliable and easier-to-use means for litigants to voice their ...


Cybersecurity, Data Breaches, And The Economic Loss Doctrine In The Payment Card Industry, David W. Opderbeck 2016 University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law

Cybersecurity, Data Breaches, And The Economic Loss Doctrine In The Payment Card Industry, David W. Opderbeck

Maryland Law Review

Data breaches are pervasive and costly. Recent civil data breach cases have centered on the consumer credit card payment chain in the retail industry. An important issue in such cases is whether the economic loss doctrine should bar negligence claims for purely pecuniary losses suffered by a non-negligent party, such as an issuing bank or a federal credit union that must incur costs to reimburse cardholders for the fraudulent use of stolen card numbers.

The economic loss doctrine should not bar these claims. Large-scale data networks, such as consumer credit card networks, often entail significant network externalities. These include externalities ...


How The Internet, The Sharing Economy, And Reputational Feedback Mechanisms Solve The “Lemons Problem”, Adam Thierer, Christopher Koopman, Anne Hobson, Chris Kuiper 2016 University of Miami Law School

How The Internet, The Sharing Economy, And Reputational Feedback Mechanisms Solve The “Lemons Problem”, Adam Thierer, Christopher Koopman, Anne Hobson, Chris Kuiper

University of Miami Law Review

This paper argues that the sharing economy—through the use of the Internet and real time reputational feedback mechanisms—is providing a solution to the lemons problem that many regulators have spent decades attempting to overcome. Section I provides an overview of the sharing economy and traces its rapid growth. Section II revisits the lemons theory as well as the various regulatory solutions proposed to deal with the problem of asymmetric information. Section III discusses the relationship between reputation and trust and analyzes how reputational incentives affect commercial interactions. Section IV discusses how information asymmetries were addressed in the pre-Internet ...
