Julie E. Cohen. Configuring the networked self: law, code, and the play of everyday practice. Yale University Press, 2012.

K564.C6C635 2012

 

The legal and technical rules governing flows of information are out of balance, argues Julie E. Cohen in Configuring the Networked Self: law, code and the play of everyday practice. Flows of cultural and technical information are overly restricted, while flows of personal information often are not restricted at all. The author investigates the institutional forces shaping the emerging information society and the contradictions between those forces and the ways that people use information and information technologies in their everyday lives.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

James G. McEwen et al. Intellectual property in government contracts: protecting and enforcing IP at the state and federal level. 2d ed. Oxford University Press, 2012.

KF2979.M345 2012

 

State and national governments often meet their technologically-intensive needs by entering into contracts and financing deals with private companies. These contracts have elevated the risk of intellectual property loss for private-sector contractors. Intellectual Property in Government Contracts, Second Edition,  provides a comprehensive appraisal of United States federal procurement laws relating to intellectual property, plus a detailed survey of state procurement rules and a comparison of the approaches adopted by the European Union and other industrialized countries.
