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.

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)

It also discusses the role of players' associations, the power of sports commissioners, sports betting regulations, and more.

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.

Laws of image : privacy and publicity in America / Samantha Barbas.

Location: lax
Call #: KF1262 .B37 2015
Publisher: Stanford Law Books, an imprint of Stanford University Press,


Americans have long been obsessed with their images - their looks, public personas, and the impressions they make. This preoccupation has left its mark on the law. The 20th century saw the creation of laws that protect your right to control your public image, to defend your image, and to feel good about your image and public presentation of self. These include the legal actions against invasion of privacy, libel, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. With these laws came the phenomenon of 'personal image litigation' - individuals suing to vindicate their image rights. This book tells the story of how Americans came to use the law to protect and manage their images, feelings, and reputations. Find out more (catalog link)

When the U.S. Supreme Court announces a decision, reporters simplify and dramatize the complex legal issues by highlighting dissenting opinions and thus emphasizing conflict among the justices themselves. This sometimes sensationalistic coverage fosters public controversy over specific rulings despite polls that show that Americans strongly believe in the Court's legitimacy as an institution. In The Limits of Legitimacy, Michael A. Zilis illuminates this link between case law and public opinion. Find out more (catalog link)
