New Developments In Developmental Research On Social Information Processing And Antisocial Behavior, Reid Fontaine

Reid G. Fontaine

The Special Section on developmental research on social information processing (SIP) and antisocial behavior is here introduced.

Notable contributions of these studies are highlighted.

Da Ilicitude Como Uma Das Belas Artes, Victor Calvete 2009 Universidade de Coimbra

Da Ilicitude Como Uma Das Belas Artes, Victor Calvete

Victor J. Calvete

Main Points: - Economic law is prone to change: as Bernard Mandeville put it in 1705, "Their laws and cloths were equally/ Objects of mutability;/ for what was well done for a time,/ in half a year became a crime;" - If that is broadly so, it is even more so in what concerns a number of economic actions that fall under the antitrust laws, namely, Resale Price Maintenance (RPM); - The story of RPM in the USA is so full of U-turns that leaves your head spinning; and even if you cut that long story short, its "legal technicality" used to read ...


The Impact Of The Volume Contract Concept On The Global Community Of Shippers: The Rotterdam Rules In Perspective, Abhinayan Basu Bal 2009 Lund University

The Impact Of The Volume Contract Concept On The Global Community Of Shippers: The Rotterdam Rules In Perspective, Abhinayan Basu Bal

Abhinayan Basu Bal

The volume contract regime is probably the most revolutionary and undoubtedly the most controversial feature of the Rotterdam Rules. Much has been said about its legal characteristics, and the focus has been on those provisions which allow derogation from the Rules. It has even caused the Rules to be described as taking world shipping back to the chaos that prevailed before the Hague Rules. However, the concept of the volume contract albeit in another incarnation, generally referred to as the service contract, and regarded mainly as an American phenomenon ^ has already proved to be of considerable benefit to the global ...

The Amended Google Books Settlement Is Still Exclusive, James Grimmelmann 2009 New York Law School

The Amended Google Books Settlement Is Still Exclusive, James Grimmelmann

James Grimmelmann

This brief essay argues that the proposed settlement in the Google Books case, although formally non-exclusive, would have the practical effect of giving Google an exclusive license to a large number of books. The settlement itself does not create mechanisms for Google's competitors to obtain licenses to orphan books and competitors are unlikely to be able to obtain similar settlements of their own. Recent amendments to the settlement do not change this conclusion.


Toward A Theory Of Precedent In Arbitration, W. Mark Weidemaier 2009 University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

Toward A Theory Of Precedent In Arbitration, W. Mark Weidemaier

W. Mark C. Weidemaier

The claim that arbitrators do not create precedent recurs throughout the arbitration literature. As an empirical matter, however, it is increasingly clear that, in some arbitration systems, arbitrators often cite to other arbitrators, claim to rely on past awards, and promote adjudicatory consistency as an important system norm. Much like courts, then, arbitrators can (but do not always) create precedent that guides future behavior and provides a language in which disputants, lawyers, and adjudicators can express and resolve grievances. This Article provides a theoretical foundation for understanding the conditions under which such precedent will (or will not) arise. It identifies ...


Just Kids: Baltimore’S Youth In The Adult Criminal Justice System, Wendy Hess 2009 University of South Dakota School of Law

Just Kids: Baltimore’S Youth In The Adult Criminal Justice System, Wendy Hess

Wendy Hess

Maryland’s 20 year experiment with the “tough on crime” approach of automatically sending youth into adult criminal courts, jails and prisons for certain offenses has failed. National studies show that youth who are sent to adult facilities go on to commit more—and more violent—crimes than those who received rehabilitative services in the juvenile system. This costs taxpayers much more in the long run. Automatically charging youth as adults has been politically popular. But the data shows that when their cases are individually considered, most cases in Baltimore are dismissed or sent back to the juvenile system, raising ...


The Cfi Microsoft Judgment And Trips Competition Flexibilities, Hans Henrik Lidgard, Tu Nguyen 2009 University of Lund, Sweden

The Cfi Microsoft Judgment And Trips Competition Flexibilities, Hans Henrik Lidgard, Tu Nguyen

Hans Henrik Lidgard

The CFI Microsoft judgment is a first by any court of a WTO Member, disregarding the competition rules in the TRIPS Agreement to justify the application of domestic competition law to the exercise of IPRs. TRIPS allow WTO Members to enact and apply national competition law to IPR-related anti-competitive practices. The position of the CFI finds support in this fact. Still, it is regretted that the CFI did not invoke the TRIPS competition rules in justifying the Commission’s decision to force Microsoft to supply interoperability information. The article considers the consequences of the European position and the effects of ...

The Law And Regulation Of Otc Derivatives: An Anglo-American Comparison And Lessons For Developing Countries, Ahmad Ghouri 2009 University of Sussex at Brighton

The Law And Regulation Of Otc Derivatives: An Anglo-American Comparison And Lessons For Developing Countries, Ahmad Ghouri

Ahmad Ali Ghouri

The aim of this article is to examine the threat of systemic risk posed by speculative OTC derivative financing to financial institutions and the efforts made by the regulators to reduce such risk. A critical and comparative analysis of the Anglo-American approach to regulate OTC derivatives is endeavoured, in order to evaluate whether these advanced economies have proven effective in achieving the ultimate objectives of financial stability, certainty and predictability. The Article examines how the financial regulators of these advanced economies have responded to the threats that OTC derivative financing may have on the overall stability of contemporary financial systems ...


More Different Than Life, Less Different Than Death, William Berry 2009 University of Mississippi Main Campus

More Different Than Life, Less Different Than Death, William Berry

William W Berry III

The Supreme Court has traditionally divided its application of the Eighth Amendment into two categories, capital and non-capital cases, based on the longstanding notion that “death- is-different.” In the recent case of Graham v. Florida, however, the Supreme Court applied its “evolving standards of decency” standard, heretofore reserved for capital cases, to a non-capital case in holding that the Eighth Amendment prohibited states from sentencing juvenile offenders to life without parole for non-homicide crimes. The dissenting justices argued that this decision marked the end of the Court’s “death-is-different” jurisprudence. This article argues, however, that the decision instead creates the ...
