Abstract:

The Chrysler and General Motors bankruptcy reorganizations represent the culmination of a sea-change in corporate restructuring practice that has occurred largely over the course of just the past decade. A bankruptcy reorganization has traditionally been effectuated though a chapter 11 plan of reorganization, with elaborate requirements for disclosure, creditor voting, and allocation of stakes in the reorganized debtor entity’s new capital structure among creditors and owners. Such an internal boot-strap reorganization ...

Comparative Law And Economics: Algunos Apuntes Preliminares, Renzo Saavedra Velazco

Renzo E. Saavedra Velazco

El analisis economico del derecho se ha erigido como una herramienta para que el jurista prevea o explique el efecto de una regla en el comportamiento de los agentes economicos. Sin embargo, y pese a la utilidad de saber si la regla asumida en cierto sistema juridico ha sido eficiente, nada nos dice sobre si la circulacion o trasplante de tal regla en otro sistema generara el mismo efecto. Es a preguntas de este tipo, entre otras muchas, a las que pretende dar respuesta el comparative law and economics.

Ip Misuse As Foreclosure, Christina Bohannan 2010 University of Iowa College of Law

Ip Misuse As Foreclosure, Christina Bohannan

Christina Bohannan

In an age of IP expansionism, the doctrine most explicitly concerned with limiting IP overreaching has no defensible basis in IP policy. “Misuse” relates to the IP holder’s use of licenses and other arrangements to obtain rights “beyond the scope” of a statutory IP grant, but the doctrine has not established adequate principles for identifying the practices that should be condemned. The misuse doctrine evolved in patent law and concerned the tying of patented and unpatented goods. Courts held that such tying violated federal patent policy by expanding the statutory monopoly to include a second product not covered by ...


Indianizing Hollywood: The Debate Over Bollywood's Copyright Infringement, Hariqbal Basi 2010 University of California - Los Angeles

Indianizing Hollywood: The Debate Over Bollywood's Copyright Infringement, Hariqbal Basi

Hariqbal Basi

For decades, the mainstream Indian film industry, known as Bollywood, has remade copyrighted Hollywood films for the Indian audience without legal repercussions. This practice has gone unnoticed by Hollywood until recently, and accusations have since been brought against Indian filmmakers for copyright infringement. This note provides an in depth analysis of why these potentially infringing films have only become the subject of litigation over the last two years, cultural arguments advanced by Indian filmmakers for why their remakes should constitute original, and not infringing, works, and what the effects of litigation have been. As the two industries become increasingly intertwined ...


Copyright And Democratization In Africa, JOHN MUKUM MBAKU 2010 University of Utah

Copyright And Democratization In Africa, John Mukum Mbaku

JOHN MUKUM MBAKU

Since the 1960s, Africans have been struggling to deepen and institutionalize democracy. The two most important factors that can help African countries democratize their politics are a robust civil society and a democratic culture. This paper argues that an effective copyright law can be used to bring about these two factors, which are critical to democracy and democratization in the continent.

Coase, Institutionalism, And The Origins Of Law And Economics, Herbert Hovenkamp 2010 University of Iowa

Coase, Institutionalism, And The Origins Of Law And Economics, Herbert Hovenkamp

Herbert Hovenkamp

ABSTRACT

Ronald Coase merged two traditions in economics, marginalism and institutionalism. Neoclassical economics in the 1930s was characterized by an abstract conception of marginalism and frictionless resource movement. Marginal analysis did not seek to uncover the source of individual human preference, but accepted preference as given. It treated the business firm in the same way, focusing on how firms make market choices, but saying little about their internal workings.

“Institutionalism” historically refers to a group of economists who wrote mainly in the 1920s and 1930s. Their place in economic theory is outside the mainstream, but they have found new energy ...

Defining The "Business Of Baseball": A Proposed Framework For Determining The Scope Of Professional Baseball's Antitrust Exemption, Nathaniel Grow 2010 University of Georgia

Defining The "Business Of Baseball": A Proposed Framework For Determining The Scope Of Professional Baseball's Antitrust Exemption, Nathaniel Grow

Nathaniel Grow

This article proposes a new analytical framework for determining the proper scope of professional baseball’s antitrust exemption, an issue that has generated surprisingly little scholarly analysis to date. Specifically, the article finds that lower courts have applied the exemption in widely divergent ways, due to a misunderstanding, and in some cases a misinterpretation, of the underlying focus of the United States Supreme Court’s opinions first creating and affirming the exemption. The article argues that future courts should reject the existing lower court precedent, and instead, consistent with the often overlooked focus of the Supreme Court’s decisions, hold ...

When It Reins It Pours, Noah M. Sachs 2010 University of Richmond

When It Reins It Pours, Noah M. Sachs

Law Faculty Publications

Imagine if the board of a Fortune 500 company required the company’s vice presidents to obtain board approval before implementing any decision. Now imagine that the board is highly polarized and its members are at each other’s throats. A recipe for corporate gridlock, right?

Amazingly, House Speaker John Boehner, Senator Jim DeMint, and other prominent Republicans are embracing this dubious chain-of-command for the federal government. They are promoting a bill called the REINS Act (Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny), which would stop any major regulation issued by any federal agency from taking effect until it ...

The Aftermath Of Ruiz V. Mero: Why The New Jersey Legislature Must Rekindle The Firefighters’ Rule, Nicholas Mangold 2010 Vermont Law School

The Aftermath Of Ruiz V. Mero: Why The New Jersey Legislature Must Rekindle The Firefighters’ Rule, Nicholas Mangold

Nicholas Mangold

This Note explores the history, common law expansion, and statutory abrogation of the firefighters’ rule in New Jersey tort law. For decades, the rule protected Garden State homeowners from civil liability for injuries to first responders. In its original form, the rule barred tort claims based only on the very negligence that necessitated the first responders’ presence on scene. However, the courts slowly expanded the reach of the rule until it eventually was used to bar recovery for injuries caused by acts of negligence completely separate from that which prompted the emergency response. In response, the state legislature sweepingly abrogated ...


Trade Practises And Fairness In The University Research Business Administration In Australia, CHUEN-TAT KANG 2010 GJS Intellectual Company Australia

Trade Practises And Fairness In The University Research Business Administration In Australia, Chuen-Tat Kang

Chuen-Tat Kang (江俊达)

Universities in Australia are abide to various rules and regulations that guard the administration of the varsities as educational and business institutions. Argument sometimes arises on whether the state statutory organizations could be under jurisdictions of trade practises law in various Australian states. In certain disputable situations, contractual inconsistencies in the interpretation could arises especially among the research staffs and students due to various different interpretation of rights and conditions of awards during the recruitment processes. In order to prevent breaches of contracts in any parties then the research teams, whether of law professions or otherwise, should be cautious about ...
