Copyright And Freedom Of Expression In Europe, Pankaj Singh 2010 United Nations

Copyright And Freedom Of Expression In Europe, Pankaj Singh

Pankaj Singh

This article will describe the state of European law concerning the conflict between copyright and freedom of expression. To set the stage, I will first set out the constitutional basis of copyright (or the absence thereof) in various countries in Europe. Next, I shall describe the law governing free speech, and in particular the workings of Article 10 ECHR. The analysis will thereafter focus on copyright v. free speech case law that has recently emerged from a number of continental European countries (especially Germany, France and The Netherlands), and from the former ‘gate-keeper’ to the European Court, the European Commission ...


Regulatory Failures In The Design Of Securities Settlement Infrastructure, David C. Donald 2010 The Chinese University of Hong Kong

Regulatory Failures In The Design Of Securities Settlement Infrastructure, David C. Donald

David C. Donald

Nearly all transactions in listed securities on the US capital markets are settled through a securities settlement infrastructure that generates extensive negative externalities for issuers and securityholders. This model is still advocated by regulators and market structure experts; it is an intermediated structure originally designed for depositing paper certificates in the accounts of a depository to allow book entry transfers of claims on the deposited certificates. The structure dates back at least to 1873. It accelerates transfer by short circuiting "endorsement", "delivery" and "cancellation" of certificates, as all securities are and remain registered in the name of a single entity ...


The Need For Better Analysis Of High Capacity Services, GEORGE S. FORD, LAWRENCE J. SPIWAK 2010 Phoenix Center for Advanced Legal & Economic Public Policy Studies

The Need For Better Analysis Of High Capacity Services, George S. Ford, Lawrence J. Spiwak

GEORGE S FORD

In 1999, the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) began to grant incumbent local exchange carriers (“LECs”) pricing flexibility on special access services in some Metropolitan Statistical Areas (“MSAs”) when specific evidence of competitive alternatives is present. The propriety of that deregulatory move by the FCC has been criticized by the purchasers of such services ever since. Proponents of special access price regulation rely on three central arguments to support a retreat to strict price regulation: (1) the market(s) for special access and similar services is unduly concentrated; (2) rates of return on special access services, computed using FCC ARMIS data ...


Iqbal, Twombly, And The Expected Cost Of False Positive Error, Max Huffman 2010 Indiana University School of Law -- Indianapolis

Iqbal, Twombly, And The Expected Cost Of False Positive Error, Max Huffman

Max Huffman

Iqbal and Twombly introduced a new standard for pleading federal claims, overruling the five-decades old language from Conley v. Gibson. Instead of plaintiffs being entitled to discovery unless the complaint affirmatively forecloses the possibility of recovery, Iqbal and Twombly require a more searching evaluation of the complaint under an ambiguous “plausibility” standard. The policy behind this increased burden on plaintiffs is to prevent the false positive error that burdensome discovery creates. How the plausibility standard from Iqbal and Twombly should operate in the real world is poorly understood. There is general acknowledgement that no clear guidance exists about how to ...

Online Fantasy Sports Litigation And The Need For A Federal Right Of Publicity Statute, Risa J. Weaver 2010 Duke Law

Online Fantasy Sports Litigation And The Need For A Federal Right Of Publicity Statute, Risa J. Weaver

Duke Law & Technology Review

The right of publicity is currently a jumble of state common law and state statutes, but the online fantasy sports industry crosses state lines with ease. Having witnessed the great revenue potential of online fantasy sports, professional sports leagues are trying to strong-arm independent fantasy sports providers out of the business by using the right of publicity to assert property interests in the statistics generated by professional players, and used by fantasy sports providers to run their online games. The first such attempt--by Major League Baseball--failed. However, the state law nature of the right of publicity prevents any single court ...


Comparative Studies Of Law, Slavery And Race In The Americas, Alejandro de la Fuente, Ariela J. Gross 2010 University of Pittsburgh History Department

Comparative Studies Of Law, Slavery And Race In The Americas, Alejandro De La Fuente, Ariela J. Gross

University of Southern California Legal Studies Working Paper Series

This critical essay surveys the historical research comparing U.S. and Latin American law and slavery. An earlier generation of comparative work on race and slavery, by Frank Tannenbaum and others, drew heavily on law to draw sharp contrasts between U.S. and Latin American slavery, emphasizing the relative harshness of U.S. slave law. Revisionist social historians criticized Tannenbaum for providing a misleading top-down history based on metropolitan codes, and pointed to demographic and economic factors to explain variations in slavery regimes. More recently, legal historians have begun to explore law “from the bottom up” -- slaves’ claims in court ...


Glamis Gold Ltd. Vs United States Of America Award And Its Implication On The Scope Of Article 1105 Minimum Standard Of Treatment., Pravesh M. Gungah 2010 Quebec Bar

Glamis Gold Ltd. Vs United States Of America Award And Its Implication On The Scope Of Article 1105 Minimum Standard Of Treatment., Pravesh M. Gungah

Pravesh M. Gungah

The note is a guide to understand the latest NAFTA Chapter 11 award- the Glamis Gold award. The award rendered in June 2009 is made up of 360 pages, probably the thickest Chapter 11 award. The facts, points of law, and special emphasis on the fair and equitable treatment claim are covered in 13 pages. The note ends with a critical analysis of the Tribunal’s stance on fair and equitable treatment, and places it in the jurisprudential context.

Departmentalism, Constitutional Resistance, And The Separation Of Powers, Luis M. Dickson 2010 Georgetown University

Departmentalism, Constitutional Resistance, And The Separation Of Powers, Luis M. Dickson

Luis M. Dickson

This article has two distinct aims. The first is to offer a new and comprehensive analytic account of departmentalism. I suggest that recognizable forms of ‘departmentalism’ can be seen from adopting any of four distinct theses of constitutional practice. These theses are, in increasing order of controversy, internal legal review, coordinate legal review, independent constitutional judgment, and constitutional resistance. I hope to show that these theses are logically independent, and moreover, that three of them – all except constitutional resistance – have significant doctrinal and theoretical support. I conclude by examining the legal-theoretic assumptions of constitutional resistance, and why constitutional resistance is ...
