Jonathan Band, Masanobu Katoh. Interfaces on trial 2.0. MIT Press, c2011.

K1443.C6B359 2011


We live in an interoperable world. Computer hardware and software products from different manufacturers can exchange data within local networks and around the world using the Internet.  This book investigates an often overlooked factor in the development of today’s interoperability: the evolution of copyright law. Because software is copyrightable, copyright law determines the rules for competition in the information technology industry. The authors examine the debates surrounding the use of copyright law to prevent competition and interoperability in the global software industry in the last fifteen years.







Michael A. Genovese. Presidential prerogative : imperial power in an age of terrorism. Stanford University Press, c2011.

JK516.G47 2011


This work examines the evolution of claims of independent executive power by exploring the roots and development of executive prerogative in America. The author traces the concept back to its British use and the theories that animated prerogative in England, as well as whether prerogative was "Americanized" by the founders. He further explores where one might find constitutional or legal support for prerogative, how the concept and practice of prerogative has evolved over time, the extent to which the Bush presidency mirrors or departs from previous examples of presidential prerogative, and finally, whether "necessity" is a legitimate reason to adopt prerogative.
