NAFTA at 20 : the North American Free Trade Agreement's achievements and challenges / edited by Michael J. Boskin.

Location: lax
Call #: KDZ944 .N34 2014
Publisher:


The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was bold and controversial from the start. When first conceived, it was far from obvious that it would be possible given the circumstances of the times. Drawing from a December 2013 Hoover Institution conference on "NAFTA at 20," this book brings together distinguished academics who have studied the effects of NAFTA with high-level policy makers to present a comprehensive view of the North American Free Trade Agreement. It looks at the conception, creation, outcomes so far, and the future of NAFTA from the perspective of economists, historians, and the aforementioned policy makers in the words of those who actually participated in the negotiations and research.

Eureka myth : creators, innovators, and everyday intellectual property / Jessica Silbey.

Location: lax
Call #: KF2979 .S59 2015
Publisher:


In 1789, the Constitution enshrined protections for authors and inventors. Yet we still debate the merits of intellectual property laws and whether they work as intended. What facilitates innovation and creativity in our digital age? What role does IP play in promoting innovation and creativity in the United States? Silbey cuts through the current debates and goes straight to the source: the artists and innovators themselves. By centering on accounts of creative and innovative work provided by artists, scientists, their employers, managers, and lawyers, The Eureka Myth breaks new ground. In doing so, it draws out new and surprising conclusions about the sometimes misinterpreted relationships between creativity, innovation, and IP. Find out more (catalog link)

Abraham Drassinower presents a new way to balance the needs of creators and users of authored works.

Legal environment of translation / Guillermo Cabanellas.

Location: lax
Call #: K1488 .C33 2014
Publisher: Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group,


Translation is subject to a complex and unique set of legal rules that govern its various practical and intellectual aspects. These rules derive from very different legal areas, such as intellectual property and labour law. While useful from a strictly legal point of view, the heterogeneity of sources operates as a major hurdle in terms of understanding the overall legal framework within which translation operates. This book offers a general overview of the legal rules applicable to different aspects of translation, allowing translators and other interested parties to form a broad and coherent picture of the rules applicable in this area.

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)

Limits of legitimacy : dissenting opinions, media coverage, and public responses to Supreme Court decisions / Michael A. Zilis.

Location: lax
Call #: KF8748 .Z55 2015
Publisher: University of Michigan Press,


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)
