Future of Ideas: The Fate of the Commons in a Connected World
Lawrence Lessig
0375726446
October 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Review's Best of 2001
If The Future of Ideas is bleak, we have nobody to blame but ourselves. Author Lawrence Lessig, a Stanford law professor and keen observer of emerging technologies, makes a strong case that large corporations are staging an innovation-stifling power grab while we watch idly. The changes in copyright and other forms of intellectual property protection demanded by the media and software industries have the potential to choke off publicly held material, which Lessig sees as a kind of intellectual commons. He eloquently and persuasively decries this lopsided control of ideas and suggests practical solutions that consider the rights of both creators and consumers, while acknowledging the serious impact of new technologies on old ways of doing business. His proposals would let existing companies make money...

Law in a Digital World

May 1995
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The world of law is a world of information. Rules, judgments, decisions, interpretations, and agreements all involve using and communicating information. Today, we are experiencing a significant transition, from letters fixed on paper to information stored electronically. The digital era,
where information is created, stored, and communicated electronically, is quickly approaching, if not already here. The future of law will no longer be found in impressive buildings and leather-bound books, but in small pieces of silicon, in streams of light, and in millions of miles of wires and
cable. It will be a world of new relationships and greater possibilities for individual and group communication, an environment where the value of information increases as it is shared.

From Library Journal
Litman (law, Wayne State Univ.) offers a surprisingly readable, even entertaining dissection of 1998's Digital Millennium laws passed throughout the 20th century. Central to her exegesis is a critique of the method of drafting legislation, begun just about 100 years ago, that lets the interested parties negotiate among themselves and submit to legislators proposed amendments and revisions. She includes libraries as parties with special interests in this system and notes that the most important group consumers is inevitably not represented. And she has special disdain for her fellow Chapters jump from a historical investigation of legislative practice, to comparison of several recent technological challenges to copyright, to an explanation of how shifts in the understanding of underlying principle have...

The Digital Person: Technology And Privacy In The Information Age
Daniel J. Solove
0814798462
November 2004
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
When one surveys the myriad ways that personal information can be snatched from individuals through electronic means, it’s easy to feel gloomy about the prospects for privacy in the Information Age—which is why this book is so refreshing. Although it sometimes reads like a legal brief—author Solove (Information Privacy Law) is an associate law professor at George Washington University Law School—it offers insights into the current state of privacy in America and some intriguing prescriptions for altering that state of affairs. Contrary to popular notions that "Big Brother" is destroying privacy, Solove argues that the withering of privacy can, in large measure, be attributed to indifference. "The privacy problem created by the use of databases stems from an often careless and unconcerned...

June 2003
Textbook Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Few could have envisioned just a few years ago how ingrained the subject of forensic science would become in our television culture. Perhaps we can attribute our obsession with forensic science to the yearnings of a society bent on apprehending criminals but desirous of a system of justice that ensures the correctness of its verdicts. The level of sophistication that forensic science has brought to criminal investigations is awesome. This eighth edition of Criminalistics and its predecessors have aimed to make the subject comprehensible to a wide variety of readers who are or plan to be aligned with the forensic science profession, as well as to those who have a curiosity about the subject's underpinnings. One of the constants of forensic science is how frequently its applications become front-page news....

Hedge Fund Disclosure Documents Line by Line: A User's Guide to Private Placement Memoranda for Funds Formed as Limited Liability Companies [DOWNLOAD: ADOBE READER]
Gregory, J. Nowak
B0007UVTGW
December 2004
Digital
·
 


Book Description
In the ever-expanding world of hedge funds, one constant remains: managers and sponsors commission the creation of disclosure documents to explain their products and minimize their personal risk exposure. These disclosure documents can be as descriptive – or as opaque – as the manager wants, subject to industry convention and the anti-fraud provisions of the securities laws. Of course, the more opaque the disclosure document is, the less likely the disclosure document will adequately describe the plan, the purposes, and the risks of investment, and accomplish the legal objective of true, complete, and accurate disclosure. The document analyzed in this publication, the confidential Private Placement Memorandum of the ABC Fund, LLC, is one of the more expansive documents presently in the marketplace. While not as...

Book Description
Pirates of the Digital Millennium: Preface PREFACE It was a quintessential New England fall morning-crisp, sunny, cold-that day in November 2002. We were two old friends and colleagues, getting together for breakfast to catch up, talk about our work, our children, our lives. John, the researcher, was just finishing up a massive project at IDC on the economic impact of worldwide software piracy. Jack, the writer, smelled an important story in the making. We were both amazed at the extent of worldwide copyright violation, astounded at how fast Napster had grown, sad at its demise and the loss of one of the easiest to use software programs we d ever seen, and amused at how quickly KaZaA had filled its shoes. Little did we know that the casual activity known as file-sharing, or downloading MP3s, would explode in...
