Featured Resource List

Jon L. Mills. Privacy : the lost right. Oxford University Press, c2008.

KF1262.M55 2008

 

This book evaluates the status of citizens' right to privacy in today's intrusive world. Mills reviews the history of privacy protections, the general loss of privacy, and the inadequacy of current legal remedies, especially with respect to more recent privacy concerns, such as identity theft, government surveillance, tabloid journalism, and video surveillance in public places. Mills concludes that existing regulations do not adequately protect individual privacy, and he presents options for improving privacy protections.

 

Wei Shi. Intellectual property in global trading system : EU-China perspective. Springer, 2008.

K1401.S45 2008

 

After exploring multifaceted issues of intellectual property rights (IPR) enforcement, this book demonstrates that counterfeiting and piracy are common inevitable consequences of inadequate economic development and a by-product of a unique set of socioeconomic crises deriving from the development of a dysfunctional institutional regime. By examining areas of compatibilities between European and Chinese cultures and analyzing painful lessons from the US-China negotiations over IPR protection, this book uses the prism of EU-China trade relations to suggest ways to reconcile the minimum standards of TRIPS Agreement and the specific conditions of particular states, and provide insight into the unresolved issues as to how and when China's WTO commitments will be implemented.
