The Public Perception Of The #Geneeditedbabies Event Across Multiple Social Media Platforms: Observational Study, Ellen W. Clayton, Congning Ni, et al. 2022 Vanderbilt University Law School

The Public Perception Of The #Geneeditedbabies Event Across Multiple Social Media Platforms: Observational Study, Ellen W. Clayton, Congning Ni, Et Al.

Vanderbilt Law School Faculty Publications

In November 2018, a Chinese researcher reported that his team had applied clustered regularly interspaced palindromic repeats or associated protein 9 to delete the gene C-C chemokine receptor type 5 from embryos and claimed that the 2 newborns would have lifetime immunity from HIV infection, an event referred to as #GeneEditedBabies on social media platforms. Although this event stirred a worldwide debate on ethical and legal issues regarding clinical trials with embryonic gene sequences, the focus has mainly been on academics and professionals. However, how the public, especially stratified by geographic region and culture, reacted to these issues is not ...

Indiana Law Fertility Expert A Resource On Fraud Legislation, James Owsley Boyd

Keep Up With the Latest News from the Law School (blog)

A piece of new, bipartisan legislation that would make knowingly misrepresenting the nature or source of DNA used in assisted reproductive procedures or other fertility treatments a federal crime has a tie to the Maurer School of Law.

Jody Madeira, a nationally recognized expert on fertility fraud, bioethics, and law and medicine, worked with victims of fertility fraud as they sought ways to develop legislation making the act a crime.


A Qualitative Look Into Repair Practices, Jumana Labib 2022 Western University

A Qualitative Look Into Repair Practices, Jumana Labib

Undergraduate Student Research Internships Conference

This research poster is based on a working research paper which moves beyond the traditional scope of repair and examines the Right to Repair movement from a smaller, more personal lens by detailing the 6 categorical impediments as dubbed by Dr. Alissa Centivany (design, law, economic/business strategy, material asymmetry, informational asymmetry, and social impediments) have continuously inhibited repair and affected repair practices, which has consequently had larger implications (environmental, economic, social, etc.) on ourselves, our objects, and our world. The poster builds upon my research from last year (see "The Right to Repair: (Re)building a better future"), this ...

A Proposed Analytical Framework For Resolving An Intra-Court Split On Claim Construction Ambiguity, Perez, Erik I. 2022 Santa Clara Law

A Proposed Analytical Framework For Resolving An Intra-Court Split On Claim Construction Ambiguity, Perez, Erik I.

Santa Clara High Technology Law Journal

The Federal Circuit was created to ensure patent law consistency by reducing inter-circuit splits.1 For decades, the Federal Circuit has oscillated between two standards associated with claim construction. This Article attempts to explain, analyze, and propose a solution to the intra-court split on claim construction. Part I examines the historical overview of patent litigation. This section briefly describes patent document sections, protectable patent rights, and patent interpretation shifts, from relying on the patent’s specification, to the patent’s claim. Part II examines current patent law. This section briefly describes how patent claims are interpreted and what role the ...


A Reconceptualization Of Website Accessibility Under The Ada: Resolving The Inter-Circuit Conflict Post-Pandemic, Lazar, Jonathan, Ferleger, David 2022 Santa Clara Law

A Reconceptualization Of Website Accessibility Under The Ada: Resolving The Inter-Circuit Conflict Post-Pandemic, Lazar, Jonathan, Ferleger, David

Santa Clara High Technology Law Journal

The federal circuit courts of appeals are in conflict over whether Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act requires public accommodations’ websites to be accessible to people with disabilities. Some courts consider websites themselves to be a covered “place of public accommodation.” Others conclude that websites are not covered at all. The predominant view is that a website must be accessible if it has a “nexus” to a physical public location. However, the “nexus” requirement has been problematic from the start and its weaknesses have been particularly exposed during the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic exposes a deep mismatch between ...


Cyborgs And The Americans With Disabilities Act, Lou Colasanti 2022 Mitchell Hamline School of Law

Cyborgs And The Americans With Disabilities Act, Lou Colasanti

Student Scholarship

Medical technology is advancing at lightning speed with the potential to drastically benefit the disabled. These new technologies will result in humans who will use a wide array of assistive technologies and will likely be labelled as Cyborgs. Assistive technologies such as self-driving cars, robots, computer chip implants, insertable medical hardware, and exoskeletons are already well developed. The day is rapidly approaching when Cyborgs as a class will be large and influential. Critically, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the judges tasked with enforcing this legislation, and the legislature itself are all ill equipped to handle the speed of this ...

Dark Systems: Reprogramming Artificial Intelligence Regulations To Promote Fairness And Employment Nondiscrimination, Wennagel, Robert 2022 Santa Clara Law

Dark Systems: Reprogramming Artificial Intelligence Regulations To Promote Fairness And Employment Nondiscrimination, Wennagel, Robert

Santa Clara High Technology Law Journal

Automated decision-making (“ADM”) systems, whether deploying artificial intelligence, machine learning, or other algorithmic processes, have become ubiquitous in modern life, but their use is often unnoticed or invisible to society at large. Currently no federal laws require notice or disclosure to individuals when an ADM is used to collect their data, evaluate them, or make determinations about their lives. This is particularly concerning for the employment relationship because notice and transparency are essential for personal privacy, and the surreptitious use of ADM systems deprives applicants and employees of the ability to understand employers’ decision-making processes and to seek redress under ...


Competition And Innovation: The Breakup Of Ig Farben, Felix Poege 2022 Boston University School of Law

Competition And Innovation: The Breakup Of Ig Farben, Felix Poege

Faculty Scholarship

The relationship between competition and innovation is difficult to disentangle, as exogenous variation in market structure is rare. The 1952 breakup of Germany’s leading chemical company, IG Farben, represents such a disruption. After the Second World War, the Allies occupying Germany imposed the breakup because of IG Farben’s importance for the German war economy instead of standard antitrust concerns. In technology areas where the breakup reduced concentration, patenting increased strongly, driven by domestic firms unrelated to IG Farben. An analysis of patent texts shows that an increased propensity to patent does not drive the effect. Descriptively, IG Farben ...

"Dharmasisya” Jurnal Program Magister Hukum FHUI

A healthy society will improve the quality of a nation. Therefore, an integrated and integrated national health system to optimize public health is necessary to keep the community productive and healthy. One of the functions of a health information system is to collect data from health and other related sectors, analyse the data and ensure its overall quality, relevance and timeliness, and transform the data into information for health-related decision making. Health data will not only contain public health conditions but will also contain a person's personal data. Data leaks that occur are mostly due to an inadequate electronic ...


Too Much Of A Good Thing? A Governing Knowledge Commons Review Of Abundance In Context, Michael J. Madison, Brett M. Frischmann, Madelyn Sanfilippo, Katherine J. Strandburg 2022 University of PIttsburgh School of Law

Too Much Of A Good Thing? A Governing Knowledge Commons Review Of Abundance In Context, Michael J. Madison, Brett M. Frischmann, Madelyn Sanfilippo, Katherine J. Strandburg

Articles

The economics of abundance, along with the sociology of abundance, the law of abundance, and so forth, should be re-framed, linked, and situated in a common context for empirical rather than conceptual research. Abundance may seem to be a new, big thing, between anxiety over information overload, Big Data, and related technological disruptions. But scholars know that abundance is an ancient phenomenon, which only seemed to disappear as twentieth century social science focused on scarcity instead. Restoring the study of abundance, and figuring out how to solve the problems that abundance might create, means shedding disciplinary blinders and going back ...

Blockchain Land Transfers: Technology, Promises, And Perils, Vincent OOI, Kian Peng SOH, Jerrold SOH 2022 Singapore Management University

Blockchain Land Transfers: Technology, Promises, And Perils, Vincent Ooi, Kian Peng Soh, Jerrold Soh

Research Collection Yong Pung How School Of Law

The blockchain’s apparent immutability has attracted significant interest on whether it may be relied on for registering and transferring land. Proponents of blockchain-based land systems point toward data security, automated transacting, and improved accessibility as key benefits; critics raise concerns over structural vulnerabilities, such as majority attacks, and inconsistencies with existing legal frameworks. The literature, however, tends to conceptualise blockchain as one monolithic data structure invariably built on the same mechanisms powering Bitcoin. This paper seeks to situate the debate on a closer understanding of the range of blockchain implementations possible. To this end, we provide a detailed technological ...

Have Disclosures Kept Up With The Big Data Revolution? An Empirical Test, Uri Benoliel 2022 College of Law & Business

Have Disclosures Kept Up With The Big Data Revolution? An Empirical Test, Uri Benoliel

Boston College Law Review

Given the significant social benefits of the big data revolution, an important empirical legal question arises: are government-mandated disclosures designed in a way that allows society to harness the power of the big data that they include? Mandated disclosures normally include an overwhelming volume of data that can be difficult to read and understand for the average individual consumer. If, however, the voluminous data included in the disclosures is machine-readable, such that it can be automatically extracted and processed by computers, disclosures might actually assist consumers in making better-informed buying decisions. Although legal scholars have extensively studied the level of ...
