Featured Resource List

Mark A. Pollack, Gregory C. Shaffer. When cooperation fails : the international law and politics of genetically modified foods. Oxford University Press, 2009.

K3927.P65 2009

 

This book discusses the transatlantic dispute over genetically modified organisms (GMOs) between the United States and the European Union, two long-time allies and economically interdependent democracies with a long record of successful cooperation. Yet the dispute - pitting a largely acceptant US against an EU deeply suspicious of

GMOs - has developed into one of the most bitter and intractable transatlantic and global conflicts, resisting efforts at negotiated resolution and resulting in a bitterly contested legal battle before the World Trade Organization.

 

 

 

 

 

Paolo Balboni. Trustmarks in e-commerce : the value of web seals and the liability of their providers. Cambridge University Press, 2009.

K564.C6B35 2009

 

This book discusses Trustmark Organisations (TMOs), which are independent parties providing e-merchants with trustmarks – a label or visual representation indicating that a product, process, or service conforms to specific quality characteristics. Security, privacy, and business practice are three areas in which trustmarks play an important role. TMOs will issue a trustmark to e-merchants only if they have demonstrated conformity to specific policies regarding security, privacy and business practice. E-merchants hope that, by displaying the trustmark on their websites, e-consumers will trust their certified practice and be more likely to divulge their personal data and transact with them. Past research focuses on economic aspects of trustmarks. This book is the first comprehensive study on trustmarks and related legal aspects. It describes pros and cons of trustmarks for e-economy, e-society and e-policy, assesses TMOs’ practice, and focuses on TMOs’ liability.
