Lawrence Lessig.

Remix : making art and commerce thrive in the hybrid economy. Penguin Press, 2008.

KF3020.L47 2008

 

This book shows how a restrictive copyright system driven by corporate interests harms almost anyone who creates, enjoys, or sells any art form. Lessig argues that America’s copyright laws have ceased to perform their original, beneficial role, establishing a culture war. He then suggests a solution based on a collaborative yet profitable “hybrid economy”, where commercial entities leverage value from sharing economies, which will benefit both commerce and community.

 

 

 

Henrik Ringbom.

The EU maritime safety policy and international law. Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, 2008

KJE2260.R56 2008

 

This book offers a comprehensive international law analysis of the European Union’s maritime safety legislation. This study assesses how the EU has acted as a flag State, port State and coastal State and measures the trends in this development against the international legal framework. More detailed legal analyses are offered for specific aspects of EU legislation that are considered to be particularly interesting from an international law point of view. The relationship between EU law and international law within the internal EU legal system is also analyzed from the specific perspective of maritime safety law.
