Adopting open source software : a practical guide / Brian Fitzgerald ... [et al.].

Location: lax
Call #: QA76.76.C69 A35 2011
Publisher: MIT Press,


Government agencies and public organizations often consider adopting open source software (OSS) for reasons of transparency, cost, citizen access, and greater efficiency in communication and delivering services. Adopting Open Source Software offers five richly detailed real-world case studies of OSS adoption by public organizations. The authors analyze the cases and develop an overarching, conceptual framework to clarify the various enablers and inhibitors of OSS adoption in the public sector. The book provides a useful resource for policymakers, practitioners, and academics.The five cases of OSS adoption include a hospital in Ireland; an IT consortium serving all the municipalities of the province of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy; schools and public offices in the Extremadura region of Spain; the Massachusetts state government's open standards policy in the United States; and the ICT department of the Italian Chamber of Deputies. The book provides a comparative analysis of these cases around the issues of motivation, strategies, technologies, economic and social aspects, and the implications for theory and practice.

Copyright and the challenge of the new / editors, Brad Sherman, Leanne Wiseman.

Location: lax
Call #: K1420.5 .C672 2012
Publisher: Kluwer Law International ; Sold and distributed in North, Central and South America by Aspen Publishers,


Copyright is not, as is often thought, something that is periodically extended to cover a new field or medium; rather, copyright redefines itself whenever its efficacy is challenged. While many factors have contributed to this process, the most consistent has been the challenges created by new technologies. The contributing authors build upon this insight to show that copyright law is, and has always been, a creature of technology. Each chapter focuses on a specific technology or group of technologies photography, telegraphy, the phonogram, radio, film, the photocopier, the tape player, television, and computer programs emphasizing the changes that each technology instigated and the challenges and opportunities it created. Perhaps the most profound insight of this extraordinary book is the authors claim ably supported in a series of intriguing chapters that the way the law responds and reacts to new technologies is always mediated by the political, social, economic, and cultural environment in which the interaction occurs.

Cultural heritage in transit : intangible rights as human rights / edited by Deborah Kapchan.

Location: lax
Call #: K487.C8 C86 2014
Publisher:


This title examines the intangibilities of human rights in the realm of heritage production, focusing not only on the ephemeral culture of those who perform it but also on the ambiguities present in the idea of cultural property in general - who claims it? Who may use it? Who should not, but does? In this volume, folklorists, ethnologists, and anthropologists analyze the practice and performance of culture in particular contexts - including Roma wedding music, Trinidadian wining, Moroccan verbal art, and Neopagan rituals - in order to draw apart the social, political, and aesthetic materialities of heritage production, including inequities and hierarchies that did not exist before.

Exclusions from patentability : how far has the European Patent Office eroded boundaries? / Sigrid Sterckx and Julian Cockbain.

Location: lax
Call #: KJC2725 .S74 2012
Publisher:


Exclusions from Patentability reviews the history of the adoption of exclusions from patentability under the European Patent Convention since its first conception in 1949 through to its most recent revision. The analysis shows how other intellectual property treaties, such as UPOV, the Strasbourg Patent Convention, PCT, the EU Biotech Directive and TRIPS have affected the framing of the exclusions. Particular attention is given to those exclusions considered the most contentious (computer programmes, discoveries, medical treatments, life forms and agriculture) and those decisions which have been most influential in shaping the approaches by which the exclusions have been interpreted. The 'morality' exclusion and the interpretation of the exclusions are discussed critically and suggestions for coherent interpretation are made. Find out more (catalog link)

Fight over digital rights : the politics of copyright and technology / Bill D. Herman.

Location: lax
Call #: KF3024.E44 H47 2013
Publisher: Cambridge University Press,


In the political fight over copyright, Internet advocacy has reshaped the playing field. This was shown most dramatically in the 2012 "SOPA blackout," when the largest online protest in history stopped two copyright bills in their tracks. For those not already familiar with the debate, this protest seemingly came out of nowhere yet was the culmination of an intellectual and political evolution more than a decade in the making. This book examines the debate over digital copyright, from the late 1980s through early 2012, and the new tools of political communication involved in the advocacy around the issue. Drawing on methods from legal studies, political science, and communications, it explores the rise of a coalition seeking more limited copyright, as well as how these early-adopting, technology-savvy policy advocates used online communication to shock the world. It compares key bills, congressional debates, and offline and online media coverage using quantitative and qualitative methods to create a rigorous study for researchers that is also accessible to a general audience.

Whether you choose to call it file sharing, copyright infringement, or digital piracy, downloading non-licensed music, movies, software, and other forms of digital content is common worldwide. Despite the widespread nature of this phenomenon, much remains unknown about it. Is "digital piracy" truly having a negative impact on society? Does enforcement actually deter would-be downloaders? Gunter examines these issues, providing both an analysis of the historical aspects of copyright and of newly collected data on downloaders. His findings lead into a critique of the pros and cons of the current state of copyright law and enforcement. Find out more (catalog link)

Intellectual liberty : natural rights and intellectual property / Hugh Breakey.

Location: lax
Call #: K1401 .B735 2012
Publisher: Ashgate,


This book develops an in-depth philosophical justification for 'user's rights' in the context of Intellectual Property (IP). User's rights are the rights of ordinary people, within bounds, to be able to use works created and written by others; they are the rights that constrain the strength and ambit of IP rights like copyright. The book uses a natural/human rights framework to argue for the cogency and plausibility of user's rights, and advances a novel interpretation of those rights - namely, user's rights as intellectual liberty: the right to inform one's choices by learning about the world.

Intellectual property rights : protections and enforcement / Harold E. Price and Linda S. Cox, editors.

Location: lax
Call #: KF2979 .I584 2012
Publisher: Nova Science,


Intellectual property rights (IPR) traditionally have been matters of national concern. Individual nation states have developed IPR regimes reflecting their domestic needs and priorities. Over time, intellectual property protection and enforcement have come to the forefront as a key international trade issue for the United States, figuring prominently in the multilateral trade policy arena and in regional and bilateral U.S. free trade agreements (FTAs). This book reflects the Administration's resolve to encourage and maintain adequate and effective IPR protection and enforcement world-wide. It identifies a wide range of concerns, including troubling "indigenous innovation" policies that may unfairly disadvantage U.S. rights holders in China, the continuing challenges of copyright piracy over the Internet in countries such as Canada, Italy, and Russia, and other ongoing, systemic IPR enforcement issues presented in many trading partners around the world.

Internet privacy rights : rights to protect autonomy / Paul Bernal.

Location: lax
Call #: K3264.C65 B49 2014
Publisher: Cambridge University Press,


Internet Privacy Rights analyses the current threats to our online autonomy and privacy and proposes a new model for the gathering, retention and use of personal data. Key to the model is the development of specific privacy rights: a right to roam the internet with privacy, a right to monitor the monitors, a right to delete personal data and a right to create, assert and protect an online identity. These rights could help in the formulation of more effective and appropriate legislation, and shape more privacy-friendly business models. The conclusion examines how the internet might look with these rights in place and whether such an internet could be sustainable from both a governmental and a business perspective.

Maritime piracy and the construction of global governance / edited by Michael J. Struett, Jon D. Carlson, and Mark T. Nance.

Location: lax
Call #: KZ7212 .M37 2013
Publisher: Routledge,


In this book, a handpicked group of leading experts in the field of International Relations use maritime piracy as a means to expose the incongruities in our understanding of global governance. Using broadly constructivist approaches to understand international actors’ responses to the challenges created by maritime piracy, the contributors question a number of myths and misconceptions around piracy uncover and analyze the various ways that international law and organizations channel actors’ understandings of maritime piracy and their efforts to respond to it. In doing so, they expose some shaky foundations for IR theorists: how do we conceive of sovereignty and legitimacy when they are delinked from the territorial aspect of the modern nation-state? What happens to prospects for cooperation when we get to the nitty-gritty questions of practice related to paying for trials, imprisoning and maintaining captured pirates, bearing the burden of policing sea-lanes, or even determining what constitutes a pirate? Does anyone have a monopoly on the legitimate use of force at sea, and how is that legitimacy constructed? Find out more (catalog link)

Written with an interdisciplinary audience in mind, these essays introduce readers to the latest debates in the philosophy of intellectual property, whether their interests are in the restrictions that copyright places on the reproduction of music and printed words or in the morality and legality of patenting human genes, essential medicines or traditional knowledge.

Nonprofit organizations and the intellectual commons / Jyh-An Lee.

Location: lax
Call #: K1401 .L44 2012
Publisher: Edward Elgar,


Over the past twenty years, a number of nonprofit organizations (NPOs), such as Creative Commons, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and the Free Software Foundation have laid essential building blocks for intellectual-commons as a social movement. Through a detailed description of these NPOs and a series of in-depth interviews with their officials, this book demonstrates that NPOs have provided the social structures that are necessary to support the production of intellectual commons. By illustrating NPOs' role in shaping the commons realm, this book provides a new lens through which to understand the intellectual-commons environment. Protecting intellectual commons has been one of the most important goals of recent innovation and information policies. This book focuses on the NPOs that occupy an increasingly critical and visible position in the intellectual-commons environment in recent years. This detailed study will appeal to academics in intellectual property and internet law, nonprofit organizations, academics and professionals, and those involved in the Free Culture and Open Source Software Movement.

Pharmaceutical patents : issues and considerations / Florian Aerts, editor.

Location: lax
Call #: KF3133.D78 P53 2013
Publisher:


Although brand-name pharmaceutical companies routinely procure patents on their innovative medications, such rights are not self-enforcing. Brand-name firms that wish to enforce their patents against generic competitors must therefore commence litigation in the federal courts. Such litigation ordinarily terminates in either a judgement of infringement, which typically blocks generic competition until such time as the patent expires, or a judgement that the patent is invalid or not infringed, which typically opens the market to generic entry. This book introduces and analyses innovation and competition policy issues associated with pharmaceutical patent litigation settlements. It begins with a review of pharmaceutical patent litigation procedures under the Hatch-Waxman Act, then introduces the concept of reverse payment settlements, and analyses the status of reverse payment settlements under antitrust laws, and discusses congressional issues and possible alternatives.

Three and a half minute transaction : boilerplate and the limits of contract design / Mitu Gulati and Robert E. Scott.

Location: lax

Publisher: University of Chicago Press,


Drawing on over two hundred interviews, Mitu Gulati and Robert E. Scott provide an eye-opening account of the institutional pressures on attorneys who prepare contracts that undergird huge financial deals. A contract of this sort consists mostly of boilerplate terms, that is, clauses copied from prior deals. The authors insightfully explore why most lawyers engage in this sort of herd behavior, but also why they respect the few who stray from the herd. A landmark study of the folkways of high-powered transactional lawyers. Find out more (catalog link)

Trade secret law in a nutshell / by Sharon K. Sandeen, Professor of Law, Hamline University, Elizabeth A. Rowe, UF Research Foundation Professor of Law, University of Florida.

Location: lapsc
Call #: KF3197 .S26 2013

Trade Secret Law is the first and only book in the Nutshell series to cover trade secret law in depth. It was written as a companion to Cases and Materials on Trade Secret Law by Rowe and Sandeen (the first casebook on trade secret law), but adds more practical advice. Thus, it is a useful resource for attorneys and law students alike. It could be a supplement to a course on trade secret law or an IP survey course that covers trade secret law, as most now do. Like the casebook, it focuses on the predominate law governing trade secrets in the U.S.: The Uniform Trade Secrets Act (now applicable in 47 of 50 states). The Trade Secret Law in a Nutshell addresses both international and criminal enforcement of trade secret rights. Find out more (catalog link)

Transnational culture in the Internet age / edited by Sean A. Pager, Adam Candeub.

Location: lax
Call #: K564.C6 T73 2012
Publisher: Edward Elgar,


Digital technology has transformed global culture, connecting and empowering users on a hitherto unknown scale. Existing paradigms from intellectual property rights to cultural diversity and telecommunications regulation seem increasingly obsolete, confounding policymakers and provoking wide-ranging debate. Transnational Culture in the Internet Age draws on a range of disciplines to examine new approaches to regulating communications and cultural production. The insightful contributions shed new light on insufficiently examined issues and highlight connections that cut across the many different domains in which such regulations operate. Building upon the framework presented by David Post – one of the first and most prominent scholars of cyber law and a contributor to this volume – the authors address the implications and economics of the Internet's astronomical scale, jurisdiction and enforcement of the web as it relates to topics including libel tourism and threats to free speech, and the power of global communication to dissolve and recreate identities.

Unfair to genius : the strange and litigious career of Ira B. Arnstein / Gary A. Rosen.

Location: lax
Call #: KF228.A76 R67 2012
Publisher: Oxford University Press,


The long and tortured career of Ira B. Arnstein, "the unrivaled king of copyright infringement plaintiffs," opens a curious window into the evolution of copyright law in the United States. As Gary A. Rosen shows in this frequently funny and always entertaining history, the litigious Arnstein was a trenchant observer and most improbable participant in the transformation of not just copyright, but of American popular music itself. A musical prodigy in the late nineteenth century, Arnstein performed as a boy soprano at the famous 1893 "White City" exhibition in Chicago. He grew up to be a composer of moderate accomplishment, but by the mid-1920s his fortunes had reversed in the face of changing tastes and times. Embittered and confused, he became convinced that he was the victim of a conspiracy to steal his music and set out on a three-decade-long campaign to prove it, suing most of the major players in the popular music industry of his day. Although Arnstein never won a case, Rosen shows that the decisions rendered ultimately defined some of the basic parameters of copyright law. Find out more (catalog link)

The long and tortured career of Ira B. Arnstein, the unrivaled "king of copyright infringement plaintiffs," opens a curious window into the evolution of copyright law in the United States. As Gary A. Rosen shows in this frequently funny and always entertaining history, the litigious Arnstein unwittingly transformed not just copyright, but American popular music itself. A youthful prodigy in the late nineteenth century, Arnstein performed at the famous 1893 "White City" exhibition in Chicago. By the 1920s, he was a moderately successful songwriter and performer in New York, but beginning in 1928, his career entered a steep descent, and he was reduced to near-penury. Embittered, he became convinced that other artists were making fortunes off of his material, and so began a quixotic two-decade campaign to sue each and every one of them. While Arnstein failed in every case, Rosen shows that the decisions rendered--often by the famous jurist Learned B. Hand--ultimately defined some of the basic parameters of modern copyright law.

Warnings and product liability : lessons learned from cognitive psychology and ergonomics / Sanne Pape.

Location: lax
Call #: KJE1630 .P37 2012
Publisher:


European Union citizens are injured each year while using products. Product liability law can contribute to preventing such damage by the way in which liability requirements in the context of warnings are framed and applied. Underlying these warning issues are a number of legal presumptions about how humans behave and interact with products and with their warnings. Primarily, liability law presumes that warnings can be effective in modifying user behavior. Relative to this is the manner in which courts or litigants evaluate product warnings in European product liability law. To rule more consistently and effectively in warning issues, a solution resides in the use of guidelines in European product liability laws that are based on empirical evidence on how humans interact with warnings. This book undertakes a behavioral approach towards the topic of warnings and product liability. Find out more (catalog link)
