An Illustration Of Hashing And Its Effect On Illegal File Content In The Digital Age, Stephen Hoffman 2010 University of Minnesota - Twin Cities

An Illustration Of Hashing And Its Effect On Illegal File Content In The Digital Age, Stephen Hoffman

Stephen P. Hoffman

I aim to show, through practical examples, that computer forensics techniques such as the use of hash values are inherently flawed in tracking illegal computer files. First, I describe the underlying theory of hashing algorithms and hash values, as well as explain that several U.S. government agencies keep detailed file databases in order to track or detect illegal files, e.g. pirated media or child pornography. These databases include the file’s unique hash values. Then, I provide real examples of hash values using MD5 and SHA-1 hashing algorithms to show how extremely minor alterations to a computer file ...


From Isolation To Inclusion: An Exploratory Study In Providing Online Legal Advice For Older People, Subhajit Basu, Joe Duffy 2010 University of Leeds

From Isolation To Inclusion: An Exploratory Study In Providing Online Legal Advice For Older People, Subhajit Basu, Joe Duffy

Subhajit Basu

We report the findings of an empirical project on access to legal advice for older people in Northern Ireland, the findings from which have wider applicability. In this research, we found that there are a range of issues preventing older people from accessing proper legal advice. These include a general reluctance to engage with the legal system as a way to enforce their rights through legal processes. The project also sought information on usage of new technologies among older people as a way of addressing their legal advice needs. Whilst our study has uncovered some examples of individualised good practice ...

Moral And Legal Issues Concerning Contemporary Human Cloning Technology : Quest For Regulatory Consensus In The International Community To Safeguard Rights And Liberties Essential To The Future Of Humanity, Ching-Pou Shih

Theses and Dissertations

The research topic for this dissertation would focus its efforts on resolving at least two questions as follows: First, what are the major moral and legal problems in current human cloning technology and what are the intelligent choices of public policy? Second, how could respective nations, regions, and the international community corporately clarify those problems in the realm of contemporary human dignity imperative and human rights jurisprudence.


Undermined Norms: The Corrosive Effect Of Information Processing Technology On Informational Privacy, Richard Warner 2010 IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law

Undermined Norms: The Corrosive Effect Of Information Processing Technology On Informational Privacy, Richard Warner

All Faculty Scholarship

Informational privacy is a matter of control; it consists in the ability to control when one’s personal information is collected, how it is used, and to whom it is distributed. The degree of control we once enjoyed has vanished. Advances in information processing technology now give others considerable power to determine when personal information is collected, how it is used, and to it is whom distributed. Privacy advocates sound the alarm in regard to both the governmental and private sectors. I focus exclusively on the later. Relying on the extensive privacy advocate literature, I assume we should try to ...


Patent Busting With Prior Art?, Brendan Baggot 2010 University of Notre Dame

Patent Busting With Prior Art?, Brendan Baggot

Brendan O. Baggot

Although there are many routes to invalidating a patent, what are the chances of finding prior art missed during U .S. prosecution? What are some of the factors that influence the outcome of a patent search? How can one assess a priori the likelihood of uncovering “new” prior art? How does the specific technology affect the outcome? These and other

A Law-Policy Proposal To Promote The Public Nature Of Science In An Era Of Academia-Industry Integration, Michael J. Malinowski

Michael J. Malinowski

This article addresses the impact of integration of academia, industry, and government on the public nature of research. The article concludes that, while the integration has benefited science immensely, regulatory measures should be taken to restore the public nature of research in an age of integration.

Agenda: The Promise And Peril Of Oil Shale Development, University of Colorado Boulder. Natural Resources Law Center 2010 University of Colorado Law School

Agenda: The Promise And Peril Of Oil Shale Development, University Of Colorado Boulder. Natural Resources Law Center

The Promise and Peril of Oil Shale Development (February 5)

The largest known oil shale deposits in the world are in the Green River Formation, which covers portions of Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming. Fully one-half of the world’s oil shale lies within 150 miles of Grand Junction, Colorado, and about 80% of these reserves are on federal land. Estimates of recoverable reserves in the Green River Formation range from 500 billion to 1.53 trillion barrels. At present consumption rates, this is enough oil to satisfy 100% of U.S. demand for well over 100 years.

Development of oil shale could cause significant impacts on the Colorado Plateau. It ...
