Joseph A. Conti. Between law and diplomacy : the social contexts of disputing at the World Trade Organization. Stanford University Press, 2010.

K4610.C66 2010

 

This book details how trade has become increasingly legalized and the implications of that for power relations between rich and poor countries. The author looks closely at who uses the system to initiate and pursue disputes, who settles and on what terms, and the relative disconnect between pursuing a dispute and what a country gains through efforts to gain compliance with WTO dictates.

This book illustrates the real legal dilemmas posed by virtual worlds. Presenting the most recent lawsuits and controversies, it explains how governments are responding to the chaos on the cyberspace frontier. After an engaging overview of the history and business models of today's virtual worlds, the author explores how laws of property, jurisdiction, crime, and copyright are being adapted to pave the path of virtual law.
