Oreste Pollicino, Giovanni M. Riccio, Marco Bassini
R2,760 Discovery Miles 27 600 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This timely and thought-provoking book explores how the protection of copyright in the digital age requires a reconsideration of how this is balanced with other fundamental rights and freedoms. Analysing the impact of the rise of digital technologies and the internet on copyright regimes, it particularly focuses on the effects of recent reforms to the EU's legal framework for the protection and enforcement of copyright. Taking a comparative approach, contributions from both leading and emerging scholars offer a variety of perspectives and methodologies through which to examine copyright law in the context of the digital economy. They investigate issues such as the relationship between private and public enforcement mechanisms, the parallels and divergences between US and European approaches, and the influence of the Court of Justice of the EU and the European Court of Human Rights on national courts and the European legal regime. Scholars of comparative and European law, as well as those with a particular interest in copyright in the context of digital technologies will find this an essential read. It will also prove useful to practitioners looking to understand recent trends in the interpretation of the EU legal framework around copyright.

Research Handbook on the Law of Virtual and Augmented Reality (Paperback): Woodrow Barfield, Marc J. Blitz Research Handbook on the Law of Virtual and Augmented Reality (Paperback)
Woodrow Barfield, Marc J. Blitz
R1,225 Discovery Miles 12 250 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The proliferation of virtual and augmented reality technologies into society raise significant questions for judges, legal institutions, and policy makers. For example, when should activities that occur in virtual worlds, or virtual images that are projected into real space (that is, augmented reality), count as protected First Amendment 'speech'? When should they instead count as a nuisance or trespass? Under what circumstances would the copying of virtual images infringe intellectual property laws, or the output of intelligent virtual avatars be patentable inventions or works of authorship eligible for copyright? And when should a person (or computer) face legal consequences for allegedly harmful virtual acts? The Research Handbook on the Law of Virtual and Augmented Reality addresses these questions and others, drawing upon free speech doctrine, criminal law, the law of data protection and privacy, and of jurisdiction, as well as upon potential legal rights for increasingly intelligent virtual avatars in VR worlds. The Research Handbook offers a comprehensive look at challenges to various legal doctrines raised by the emergence - and increasing use - of virtual and augmented reality worlds, and at how existing law in the USA, Europe, and other jurisdictions might apply to these emerging technologies, or evolve to address them. It also considers what legal questions about virtual and augmented reality are likely to be important, not just for judges and legal scholars, but also for the established businesses and start-ups that wish to make use of, and help shape, these important new technologies. This comprehensive Research Handbook will be an invaluable reference to those looking to keep pace with the dynamic field of virtual and augmented reality, including students and researchers studying intellectual property law as well as legal practitioners, computer scientists, engineers, game designers, and business owners.

Biotechnology is a field that inspires complex legal and ethical debates on an international scale.

The State of Creativity - The Future of 3D Printing, 4D Printing and Augmented Reality (Hardcover): James Griffin The State of Creativity - The Future of 3D Printing, 4D Printing and Augmented Reality (Hardcover)
James Griffin
R2,620 Discovery Miles 26 200 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Creativity has been integral to the development of the modern State, and yet it is becoming increasingly sidelined, especially as a result of the development of new machinic technologies including 3D printing. Arguing that inner creativity has been endangered by the rise of administrative regulation, James Griffin explores a number of reforms to ensure that upcoming regulations do take creativity into account. The State of Creativity examines how the State has become distanced from individual processes of creativity. This book investigates how the failure to incorporate creativity into administrative regulation is, in fact, adversely impacting the regulation of new technologies such as 3D and 4D printing and augmented reality, by focusing on issues concerning copyright and patents. This is an important read for intellectual property law scholars, as well as those studying computer science who wish to gain a more in-depth understanding of the current laws surrounding digital technologies such as 3D printing in our modern world. Legal practitioners wanting to remain abreast of developments surrounding 3D printing will also benefit from this book.

Margaret Chon, Pedro Roffe, Ahmed Abdellatif 1
R3,133 Discovery Miles 31 330 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Public-private partnerships (PPPs) play an increasingly prominent role in addressing global development challenges. United Nations agencies and other organizations are relying on PPPs to improve global health, facilitate access to scientific information, and encourage the diffusion of climate change technologies. For this reason, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development highlights their centrality in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). At the same time, the intellectual property dimensions and implications of these efforts remain under-examined. Through selective case studies, this illuminating work contributes to a better understanding of the relationships between PPPs and intellectual property considered within a global knowledge governance framework, that includes innovation, capacity-building, technological learning, and diffusion. Linking global governance of knowledge via intellectual property to the SDGs, this is the first book to chart the activities of PPPs at this important nexus.
