Decentralized Public Ledger Systems And Securities Law: New Applications Of Blockchain Technology And The Revitalization Of Sections 11 And 12(A)(2) Of The Securities Act Of 1933, Kelsey Bolin 2018 Washington University School of Law

Decentralized Public Ledger Systems And Securities Law: New Applications Of Blockchain Technology And The Revitalization Of Sections 11 And 12(A)(2) Of The Securities Act Of 1933, Kelsey Bolin

Washington University Law Review

When Bitcoin launched in 2009, it was the first virtual cryptocurrency to gain popularity and attain widespread use. Much attention has been paid to Bitcoin’s well-publicized advances and setbacks as the world’s foremost virtual currency. Less attention has been paid, however, to the decentralized public ledger technology that enables Bitcoin to function. That technology is just as innovative as Bitcoin itself. Decentralized public ledgers are a revolution in digital data storage and have the “potential to fundamentally shift the way in which society operates.”

This Note will examine one such societal shift—a change in how shareholders access ...


Understanding The Human Element In Search Algorithms And Discovering How It Affects Search Results, Susan Nevelow Mart 2018 University of Colorado Law School

Understanding The Human Element In Search Algorithms And Discovering How It Affects Search Results, Susan Nevelow Mart

Articles

When legal researchers search in online databases for the information they need to solve a legal problem, they need to remember that the algorithms that are returning results to them were designed by humans. The world of legal research is a human-constructed world, and the biases and assumptions the teams of humans that construct the online world bring to the task are imported into the systems we use for research. This article takes a look at what happens when six different teams of humans set out to solve the same problem: how to return results relevant to a searcher’s ...


Regulating Robo Advice Across The Financial Services Industry, Tom Baker, Benedict G. C. Dellaert 2018 University of Pennsylvania Law School

Regulating Robo Advice Across The Financial Services Industry, Tom Baker, Benedict G. C. Dellaert

Faculty Scholarship

Automated financial product advisors – “robo advisors” – are emerging across the financial services industry, helping consumers choose investments, banking products, and insurance policies. Robo advisors have the potential to lower the cost and increase the quality and transparency of financial advice for consumers. But they also pose significant new challenges for regulators who are accustomed to assessing human intermediaries. A well-designed robo advisor will be honest and competent, and it will recommend only suitable products. Because humans design and implement robo advisors, however, honesty, competence, and suitability cannot simply be assumed. Moreover, robo advisors pose new scale risks that are different ...

Market Transparency: How Congress Can Reform Post-Secondary Student Data To Expand Consumer Choice, Benefit Institutions, And Make Higher Education More Transparent, William Holloway 2018 Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law

Market Transparency: How Congress Can Reform Post-Secondary Student Data To Expand Consumer Choice, Benefit Institutions, And Make Higher Education More Transparent, William Holloway

Catholic University Journal of Law and Technology

The federal higher education data system is broken and in need of reform. The Office of Federal Student Aid at the Department of Education has over $1.136 trillion in net liabilities on its balance sheets, most of which consist of federal loans which enable students to access higher education. Despite this large investment, the federal government does not have a coherent way to provide students, parents, institutions, or policy makers with transparent data on student completion, retention, loan repayment, and post-college success, due to federal policies that prevent data from being collected at the student-level. The resulting system is ...

Law, Brands, And Innovation: How Trademark Law Helps To Create Fashion Innovation, 17 J. Marshall Rev. Intell. Prop. L. 492 (2018), Dayoung Chung 2018 John Marshall Law School

Law, Brands, And Innovation: How Trademark Law Helps To Create Fashion Innovation, 17 J. Marshall Rev. Intell. Prop. L. 492 (2018), Dayoung Chung

The John Marshall Review of Intellectual Property Law

This Article explores the role of trademark law in the fashion industry. For years, the fashion industry has drawn legal scholars’ attention for its maintenance of creative endeavors within a legal environment that offers limited protection against design copying. Some influential legal studies argued that copying paradoxically helps the fashion industry as unregulated copying stimulates the creation of new designs. Yet, this Article observes that the driver for new design creation is already built into the contemporary fashion industry. The question should rather be directed at who creates fashion and how the role of the law, if any, aids the ...
