Matthew Rimmer. Intellectual property and climate change : inventing clean technologies. Edward Elgar, c2011.

K1401.R56 2011

 

There is an urgent need to consider the role of intellectual property law in encouraging research, development, and diffusion of clean technologies to mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change. This book charts the patent landscapes and legal conflicts emerging in a range of fields of innovation including renewable forms of energy, such as solar power, wind power, and geothermal energy; as well as biofuels, green chemistry, green vehicles, energy efficiency, and smart grids.  As well as reviewing key international treaties, this book provides a detailed analysis of current trends in patent policy and administration in key nation states, and offers clear recommendations for law reform.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bonnie Steinbock. Life before birth : the moral and legal status of embryos and fetuses. 2nd ed. Oxford University Press, c2011.

K642.S74 2011

 

This book provides a coherent framework for addressing bioethical issues in which the moral status of embryos and fetuses is relevant.  It is based on the "interest view" which ascribes moral standing to beings with interests, and connects the possession of interests with the capacity for conscious awareness or sentience.  The theoretical framework is applied to ethical and legal topics, including abortion, prenatal torts, wrongful life, the crime of feticide, substance abuse by pregnant women, compulsory cesareans, assisted reproduction, and stem cell research.  Along the way, difficult philosophical problems, such as identity and the non-identity problem are thoroughly explored.
