Busting Blocks: Revising 47 U.S.C. §230 To Address The Effective Lack Of Legal Recourse For Wrongful Inclusion In Spam Filters Under U.S. Law, Jonathan I. Ezor 2010 Touro Law Center

Busting Blocks: Revising 47 U.S.C. §230 To Address The Effective Lack Of Legal Recourse For Wrongful Inclusion In Spam Filters Under U.S. Law, Jonathan I. Ezor

Jonathan I. Ezor

This paper discusses the growth and increasing significance of e-mail in the business and personal environment, and how unsolicited bulk commercial e-mail, also known as spam, has become a significant drain on technical and economic resources. It analyzes the statutory and self-help efforts to combat spam, with a specific focus on block lists and automated spam filters, and describes how alleged spammers have brought lawsuits in U.S. courts claiming they had been wrongfully included within block lists and filters. Finally, it describes some possible claims under U.S. law, then argues for a revision to current statutes to mandate ...


The Problem With Intellectual Property Rights: Subject Matter Expansion, Andrew Beckerman Rodau 2010 Suffolk University Law School

The Problem With Intellectual Property Rights: Subject Matter Expansion, Andrew Beckerman Rodau

Andrew Beckerman Rodau

This article examines the expansion of the subject matter that can be protected under intellectual property law. Intellectual property law has developed legal rules that carefully balance competing interests. The goal has long been to provide enough legal protection to maximize incentives to engage in creative and innovative activities while also providing rules and doctrines that minimize the effect on the commercial marketplace and minimize interference with the free flow of ideas generally. The expansive view of subject matter protectable via intellectual property law has erased the clear delineation between patent, copyright, and trademark law. This has led to overprotection ...


Bringing John Doe To Court: Procedural Issues In Unmasking Anonymous Internet Defendants, Robert G. Larson III, Paul Godfread 2010 William Mitchell College of Law

Bringing John Doe To Court: Procedural Issues In Unmasking Anonymous Internet Defendants, Robert G. Larson Iii, Paul Godfread

Robert G. Larson III

"Bringing John Doe to Court: Procedural Issues in Unmasking Anonymous Internet Defendants" explores the legal problems facing those wishing to maintain anonymity on the Internet. As the authors describe, many procedural tools are available for those who wish to pierce anonymity online. Some of these tools abuse legal process to the detriment of anonymous speakers. The authors suggest that both the judiciary and the legislature have failed to confront these sorts of abuses, and they offer four suggestions to courts wishing to curb inequitable litigation tactics in this arena.


Water, Climate, And Energy Security, Prof. Elizabeth Burleson 2010 Selected Works

Water, Climate, And Energy Security, Prof. Elizabeth Burleson

Prof. Elizabeth Burleson

Civil society participation can facilitate sound energy, climate, and water governance. This article analyzes the dynamics of transnational decision-making. Part II discusses sound energy strategy in light of a shrinking water-resources base due to climate change. Part III considers how public participation in international decision-making can sustain trust in governments and strengthen the legitimacy of legal decisions. Part IV concludes that process and outcome are both integral to addressing water, climate, and energy challenges.


The Pros And Cons Of Gene Patents, Chester S. Chuang, Denys T. Lau 2010 Golden Gate University School of Law

The Pros And Cons Of Gene Patents, Chester S. Chuang, Denys T. Lau

Publications

The debate over human gene patents was recently reignited by New York federal Judge Robert Sweet, when he found isolated human gene sequences unpatentable in Association for Molecular Pathology v. U.S. Patent and Trademark Office , 702 F.Supp.2d 181 (S.D.N.Y. 2010). An appeal of the decision is pending, and in October, the U.S. Department of Justice filed an amicus curiae brief in the case arguing that such gene sequences should not be patentable, contradicting long-standing practices of the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Given the potent impact of a possible gene patent ban ...

Providing Legal Information And Advice To Older People: As Much A Question Of Accessibility As Affordability, Subhajit Basu, Joe Duffy 2010 University of Leeds

Providing Legal Information And Advice To Older People: As Much A Question Of Accessibility As Affordability, Subhajit Basu, Joe Duffy

Subhajit Basu

No continent has as high a proportion of older people as Europe. [3] In this paper, we report the findings of an empirical project examining the legal advice needs of older people. An important element of the project also sought information about the capacity of the internet for meeting the legal advice needs of older people. Overall our findings broadly indicate considerable failings in legal information provision for older people from more traditional advice sources. Whilst we have uncovered some examples of individualised good practice,our research in the main revealed an alarming sense of fear, mistrust, uncertainty and ambivalence ...


Questioning The Frequency And Wisdom Of Compulsory Licensing For Pharmaceutical Patents, Richard Epstein 2010 NYU School of Law

Questioning The Frequency And Wisdom Of Compulsory Licensing For Pharmaceutical Patents, Richard Epstein

New York University Law and Economics Working Papers

Many advocates for using compulsory licensing (“CL”) for pharmaceutical patents in developing countries like Thailand rest their case in part on the purported use of CL in the United States. In this paper we take issue with that proposition on several grounds. As a theoretical matter, we argue that the basic presumption in favor of voluntary licenses for IP should apply in the international arena, in addition to the domestic one. In the international context, voluntary licenses are of special importance because they strengthen the supply chain for distributing pharmaceuticals and ease the government enforcement of safety standards. Next, this ...


Exhausted Or Unlicensed: Can Field-Of-Use Restrictions In Biotech License Agreements Still Prevent Off-Label Use Promotion After Quanta Computer?, Kristal M. Wicks 2010 Franklin Pierce Law Center

Exhausted Or Unlicensed: Can Field-Of-Use Restrictions In Biotech License Agreements Still Prevent Off-Label Use Promotion After Quanta Computer?, Kristal M. Wicks

University of New Hampshire Law Review

[Excerpt] “In the biotechnology (biotech) industry, companies must be increasingly aware of their intellectual property and how their licensing strategies can impact their rights. When licensing patented technology, it is common practice for biotech companies to include restricted field-of-use provisions in their license agreements. Such provisions permit a licensee to only use licensed technology in a defined field and restrict use or development in another field. This licensing strategy plays an important role within the biotech industry because it allows companies to more effectively control their intellectual property and to more efficiently research and develop pharmaceutical products.

A problem that ...

Standards × Patents ÷ Antitrust = ∞: The Inadequacy Of Antitrust To Address Patent Ambush, Jonathan Hillel 2010 Duke Law

Standards × Patents ÷ Antitrust = ∞: The Inadequacy Of Antitrust To Address Patent Ambush, Jonathan Hillel

Duke Law & Technology Review

"Patent ambush" describes certain rent-seeking behavior by the owner of patent rights to a technology that is essential to an industry standard. Two cases, Qualcomm and Rambus, represent attempts of the Third and D.C. Circuits, respectively, to address patent ambushes using federal antitrust statutes. In both cases, antitrust law proves inadequate to the task. Under Qualcomm, licensees gain too much power to extort undervalued royalty rates from patent holders who have disclosed their rights during standard-setting. Under Rambus, coupled with the dearth of other options to combat patent ambushes, non-disclosing patent holders are given free reign over standardized markets ...


Limitation Of Sales Warranties As An Alternative To Intellectual Property Rights: An Empirical Analysis Of Iphone Warranties’ Deterrent Impact On Consumers, Marc L. Roark 2010 Duke Law

Limitation Of Sales Warranties As An Alternative To Intellectual Property Rights: An Empirical Analysis Of Iphone Warranties’ Deterrent Impact On Consumers, Marc L. Roark

Duke Law & Technology Review

Apple's success with the Apple iPhone has brought with it certain problems. Its success has engendered a community that has attempted to circumvent Apple's exclusive service agreement with AT&T. Unfortunately for Apple (and similarly situated manufacturers), intellectual property law allows consumers to alter their products so as to circumvent relationships that manufacturers may have with others. The patent and copyright law first sale doctrine allows consumers to manipulate a product after it is purchased. As a result, manufacturers are increasingly turning to alternatives to intellectual property to secure control over the device after the sale. One such ...
