Intellectual property law's influence extends to every aspect of human life. The markings on a can of Coca-cola, the rights in the books, music, pictures, drama, films and electronic information sources we all use, even the shape of our pen, architecture and the science behind the latest attempt on space exploration all form its subject matter. This popular text explains and examines the often complicated law which protects and preserves new ideas and outlines how intellectual property rights allow right owners to stop others taking their creations. The changes in the new edition reflect this rapidly expanding field. This textbook includes: amendments to major decisions from the House of Lords and the European Court of Justice recent legislation such as the Patents Act 2004 the effect of developments in information technology on copyright and patent principles recent case law including Kirin-Amgen Inc v Hoechst Marion Roussel Ltdand British Horseracing Board Ltd v William Hill Organization the impact of UK, EC and EU competition laws on intellectual property rights a new chapter devoted to protection for image new coverage relating to domain names an examination of the increasing attention to human rights in intellectual property law. This thoughtful and thought-provoking text is essential reading for any student of intellectual property law. With further reading at the end of each chapter, it is the ideal introduction to a thorough understanding of intellectual property law.

The Business Innovation and Skills Committee publishes a report - "The Hargreaves Review of Intellectual Property: where next?" - as part of its inquiry into the Hargreaves Review of Intellectual Property and Growth. The Committee believes further work remains to be done in analysing whether the economic benefits of a parody exception would be as extensive as claimed. However, other grounds may yet support a change to the law by extending what is legally permissible. which would probably help improve public respect for copyright law in general. On content mining, the Committee agrees that the ability to read published scientific data automatically is useful and needs to be opened up. On the the issue of Digital Copyright Exchange, the Committee encourages the Government to push forward with this idea provided that the system is kept simple and there is a proper cost/benefit analysis. On the Government's approach to negotiations on the Unified Patents Court, the Committee is concerned about the Government's approach on this. A unified patent and litigation system could bring many benefits, particularly if the central court were situated in London, but the current proposals have not been welcomed by practitioners or industry.

Eigentum im internationalen Vergleich

18.–20. Jahrhundert

Author: Hannes Siegrist,David Sugarman

Publisher: Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht

ISBN: 3647357936

Category: History

Page: 294

View: 2627

Das Eigentum spielt in der modernen Gesellschafts- und Kulturgeschichte eine zentrale Rolle. Die Transformationsprozesse in Mittel- und Osteuropa führen das besonders deutlich vor Augen, doch auch in Westeuropa geraten gängige Vorstellungen über das Eigentum angesichts von Deregulierung und Umverteilung, von neuen Informationstechnologien und neuen Knappheiten unter Druck. Das Eigentumsrecht, zu dem auch Konventionen, Doktrinen und kulturelle Praktiken gehören, prägt Wahrnehmungen, Erfahrungen, Handlungen, gesellschaftliche Strukturen und Vorstellungen. Es kodiert die politische und kulturelle Ordnung, es legt fest, was richtig ist, wer und was anerkannt, geschützt und ausgeschlossen wird. Die Diskurse über Eigentum kreisen daher um prinzipielle Probleme der modernen Gesellschaft, etwa um Fragen nach Freiheit, Verantwortung und Gerechtigkeit.Die Bedeutung des Eigentums wird in diesem Band für verschiedene Entwicklungsperioden vom 18. Jahrhundert bis heute untersucht. Daneben werden Vergleiche zwischen verschiedenen sozialen Gruppen, Gesellschaften und Kulturen auf regionaler, nationaler und systematischer Ebene durchgeführt. Es zeigt sich, daß der individualistische, liberale Eigentumsbegriff in den letzten zwei Jahrhunderten in weiten Gebieten der Welt den Umgang mit Gütern, die sozialen Beziehungen und die wirtschaftlichen, sozialen und kulturellen Verhältnisse geprägt hat, wenn auch mit nationalen und regionalen Unterschieden. Die Autoren verbinden Gesellschafts- und Kulturgeschichte mit Rechtsgeschichte und machen Eigentum zum Ausgangspunkt für die historische Analyse von Gesellschaften und Kulturen.

Die kraftvolle und inspirierende Autobiografie der ehemaligen First Lady der USA Michelle Obama ist eine der überzeugendsten und beeindruckendsten Frauen der Gegenwart. Als erste afro-amerikanische First Lady der USA trug sie maßgeblich dazu bei, das gastfreundlichste und offenste Weiße Haus zu schaffen, das es je gab. Sie wurde zu einer energischen Fürsprecherin für die Rechte von Frauen und Mädchen in der ganzen Welt, setzte sich für einen dringend notwendigen gesellschaftlichen Wandel hin zu einem gesünderen und aktiveren Leben ein und stärkte außerdem ihrem Ehemann den Rücken, während dieser die USA durch einige der schmerzlichsten Momente des Landes führte. Ganz nebenbei zeigte sie uns noch ein paar lässige Dance-Moves, glänzte beim „Carpool Karaoke“ und schaffte es obendrein auch, zwei bodenständige Töchter zu erziehen – mitten im gnadenlosen Blitzlichtgewitter der Medien. In diesem Buch erzählt sie nun erstmals ihre Geschichte – in ihren eigenen Worten und auf ihre ganz eigene Art. Sie nimmt uns mit in ihre Welt und berichtet von all den Erfahrungen, die sie zu der starken Frau gemacht haben, die sie heute ist. Warmherzig, weise und unverblümt erzählt sie von ihrer Kindheit an der Chicagoer South Side, von den Jahren als Anwältin und leitende Angestellte, von der nicht immer einfachen Zeit als berufstätige Mutter sowie von ihrem Leben an Baracks Seite und dem Leben ihrer Familie im Weißen Haus. Gnadenlos ehrlich und voller Esprit schreibt sie sowohl über große Erfolge als auch über bittere Enttäuschungen, den privaten wie den öffentlichen. Dieses Buch ist mehr als eine Autobiografie. Es enthält die ungewöhnlich intimen Erinnerungen einer Frau mit Herz und Substanz, deren Geschichte uns zeigt, wie wichtig es ist, seiner eigenen Stimme zu folgen.
