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)

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.

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.

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)

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)
