Stavros L. Brekoulakis. Third parties in international commercial arbitration. Oxford University Press, 2010.

K2400.B74 2010

 

This book considers the role of third parties in arbitration agreements and proceedings and in arbitral awards, and covers significant theoretical and practical questions. These questions include: which is the proper party in arbitration; whether a tribunal can assume jurisdiction over claims by or against a party that is not designated in the arbitration clause (third-party claims); whether a party can rely on the findings of a previous arbitral award in subsequent proceedings against a third party; and whether a third party to an arbitral award can rely on its findings in proceedings against a party to the award.

 

 

 

 

 

 

William Kingston. Beyond intellectual property : matching information protection to innovation. Edward Elgar, 2010.

K1401.K56 2010

This book explores the many means by which information is protected and goes far beyond the traditional realm of IP.  It also identifies the need for urgent reform of present arrangements and suggests practical ways of achieving this. The author argues that IP is increasingly proving ineffective because its laws have been progressively shaped by the interests that benefit from them, rather than by visions of the public good. He demonstrates that repair will require such visions, which would also underwrite radically new forms of information protection.
