Featured Resource List

Lorna E. Gillies. Electronic commerce and international private law : a study of electronic consumer contracts. Ashgate, 2008.

K845.F6 G55 2008

 

This book examines the maximization of consumer protection via the consumer's jurisdiction and law. It discusses the proposition that a new connecting factor be used to improve the efficiency of juridical protection for consumers who contract with foreign sellers by electronic means and offers recommendations as to how to amend existing jurisdiction and choice of law rules to provide a basis for the consumer to sue in his own jurisdiction and for the law of the consumer's domicile to apply.

 

David L. Lange and H. Jefferson Powell. No law : intellectual property in the image of an absolute First Amendment. Stanford Law Books, c2009.

KF2979.L37 2009

 

This book argues that the First Amendment imposes absolute limits upon claims of exclusivity in intellectual property and expression, and strips Congress of the power to restrict personal thought and free expression in the name of intellectual property rights. Though the First Amendment does not repeal the Constitutional intellectual property clause in its entirety, copyright, patent, and trademark law cannot constitutionally license the private commodification of the public domain. The authors claim that the exclusive rights currently reflected in intellectual property are not in truth needed to encourage intellectual productivity, and they develop a solution for how Congress, even within the limits imposed by an absolute First Amendment, can still regulate incentives for intellectual creations.
