Online Distribution of Content in the EU (Hardcover): Taina Pihlajarinne, Juha Vesala, Olli Honkkila Online Distribution of Content in the EU (Hardcover)
Taina Pihlajarinne, Juha Vesala, Olli Honkkila
R2,760 Discovery Miles 27 600 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The legal issues surrounding the online distribution of content have recently gained prominence due to the European Commission's commitment to the Digital Single Market (DSM). This book is one of the first to provide highly topical analysis of the key legal challenges surrounding the online distribution of content, with particular focus on intellectual property rights, competition law and the regulation of new technologies. Central to the book is the question of whether the Commission's proposed legislative solutions will lead to a more coherent, or more fragmented, legal framework at both EU and member state level. Experts within the field assess how current legislation can be effectively applied and look ahead to examine how potential issues raised by emerging technologies, and the need to develop the online content market beyond the DSM proposal, can be anticipated and addressed. Providing a well-rounded view of the subject, this book will be of interest to scholars working within copyright, competition, and consumer law as well as those researching the development of the internal market more widely. Practising lawyers and in-house counsel who work on licensing and distribution agreements within Europe will also benefit from the analysis of new DSM legislation and associated case studies.

Information Sovereignty - Data Privacy, Sovereign Powers and the Rule of Law (Hardcover): Radim Polcak, Dan J B Svantesson Information Sovereignty - Data Privacy, Sovereign Powers and the Rule of Law (Hardcover)
Radim Polcak, Dan J B Svantesson
R2,619 Discovery Miles 26 190 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Data not only represent an integral part of the identity of a person, they also represent, together with other essentials, an integral part of the identity of a state. Keeping control over such data is equally important for both an individual and for a state to retain their sovereign existence. This thought-provoking book elaborates on the assumption that information privacy is, in its essence, comparable to information sovereignty. This seemingly rudimentary observation serves as the basis for an analysis of various information instruments in domestic and international law. Information Sovereignty combines a philosophical and methodological analysis of the phenomena of information, sovereignty and privacy. Providing insights into previously unexplored parallels between information privacy and information sovereignty, it examines cross-border discovery, cybersecurity and cyber-defence operations, and legal regimes for cross-border data transfers, encompassing practical discussions from a fresh perspective. In addition, it offers an accessible overview of complex theoretical matters in the domain of Internet legal theory and international law and, crucially, a method to resolve situations where informational domains of individuals and/or states collide. This pioneering state-of the-art assessment of information law and legal theory is a vital resource for students, academics, policy-makers and practitioners alike, seeking a guide to the phenomena of information, sovereignty and privacy.

Technology and the Trajectory of Myth (Hardcover): David Grant, Lyria Bennett Moses Technology and the Trajectory of Myth (Hardcover)
David Grant, Lyria Bennett Moses
R2,617 Discovery Miles 26 170 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Important and original, this book presents an entirely new way of understanding Technology - as the successor to the dominant ideologies that have underpinned the thought and practices of the West. Like Deity, State and Market, Technology displays the features of a modern myth, promising to deal with our existential concerns by creating a fully empowered sense of the individual on condition of our subjection to it. David Grant and Lyria Bennett Moses examine the dynamics of each of these ideologies, showing how Technology shares their mythological characteristics. They argue that this new myth has not only dominated science to establish its credentials but, utilising robust empirical evidence, they show how law has been imbued with mythological thinking. Demonstrating that law adopts a mythological approach in attempting to regulate technology, they argue that the pathway out of this mythological maze is to establish a new sense of political, corporate and personal self-responsibility. Students and scholars working in the field of emerging technologies and their relationship to politics, corporations, science, law, ethics, and any combination thereof, will find herein a wealth of new directions for their studies. Legal theorists and legal philosophers in particular will find much food for thought in the presentation of this new paradigm.

Rethinking Cyberlaw - A New Vision for Internet Law (Hardcover): Jacqueline Lipton Rethinking Cyberlaw - A New Vision for Internet Law (Hardcover)
Jacqueline Lipton
R2,184 Discovery Miles 21 840 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The rapid increase in Internet usage over the past several decades has led to the development of new and essential areas of legislation and legal study. Jacqueline Lipton takes on the thorny question of how to define the field that has come to be known variously as cyberlaw, cyberspace law or internet law. Unlike much of the existing literature, this book tackles the question with the benefit of hindsight and draws on several decades of legal developments in the United States and abroad that help illustrate the scope of the field. The author argues that cyberlaw might best be considered a law of the 'online intermediary,' and that by focusing on the regulation of online conduct by search engines, online retail outlets, Internet service providers and online social networks, a more cohesive and comprehensive concept of cyberlaw may be developed. Topics covered include current comparative and global strategies, suggestions for future approaches to cyberspace regulation, and the creation of a cohesive and comprehensive framework for the cyberlaw field. Providing an excellent summation of current, past and future cyberlaw, this volume will be extremely valuable to students, scholars, policy makers and legal practitioners with an interest in digital information and technology.

Data Localization Laws and Policy - The EU Data Protection International Transfers Restriction Through a Cloud Computing Lens... Data Localization Laws and Policy - The EU Data Protection International Transfers Restriction Through a Cloud Computing Lens (Hardcover)
W. Kuan Hon
R3,623 Discovery Miles 36 230 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Countries are increasingly introducing data localization laws and data export restrictions, threatening digital globalization and inhibiting cloud computing's adoption despite its acknowledged benefits. Through a cloud computing lens, this multi-disciplinary book examines the personal data transfers restriction under the EU Data Protection Directive (including the EU-US Privacy Shield and General Data Protection Regulation). It covers historical objectives and practical problems, showing why the focus should move from physical data location to effective jurisdiction over those controlling access to intelligible data and control of access to data through security measures. The book further discusses data localization laws' failure to solve concerns regarding the topical and contentious issue of mass state surveillance. Its arguments are also relevant to other data localization laws, cross-border transfers of non personal data and transfers not involving cloud computing. Comprehensive yet accessible, this book is of great value to academics in law, policy, computer science and technology. It is also highly relevant to cloud computing/technology organisations and other businesses in the EU and beyond, data privacy professionals, policymakers and regulators.

In The Future of Change, Ray Brescia identifies a series of "social innovation moments" in American history. Through these moments-during which social movements have embraced advances in communications technologies-he illuminates the complicated, dangerous, innovative, and exciting relationship between these technologies, social movements, and social change. Brescia shows that, almost without fail, developments in how we communicate shape social movements, just as those movements change the very technologies themselves. From the printing press to the television, social movements have leveraged communications technologies to advance change. In this moment of rapidly evolving communications, it's imperative to assess the role that the Internet, mobile devices, and social media can play in promoting social justice. But first we must look to the past, to examples of movements throughout American history that successfully harnessed communications technology, thus facilitating positive social change. Such movements embraced new communications technologies to help organize their communities; to form grassroots networks in order to facilitate face-to-face interactions; and to promote positive, inclusive messaging that stressed their participants' shared dignity and humanity. Using the past as prologue, The Future of Change provides effective lessons in the use of communications technology so that we can have the best communicative tools at our disposal-both now and in the future.

Framing the Net - The Internet and Human Rights (Hardcover): Rikke Frank Jorgensen Framing the Net - The Internet and Human Rights (Hardcover)
Rikke Frank Jorgensen
R2,674 Discovery Miles 26 740 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This important book examines how human rights are being applied in the digital era. The focus on 'internet freedoms' and 'internet rights' has risen considerably in recent years, and in July 2012 the first resolution on the promotion, protection and enjoyment of human rights on the internet was adopted by the U.N. Human Rights Council. This timely book suggests four framings to examine human rights challenges in an internet era: the Internet as Infrastructure, the Internet as Public Sphere, the Internet as Medium and the Internet as Culture. These propositions, and the questions that arise from them, are considered in the broad context of the way human rights are translated and applied in the information society, both in academic research and the international community's policy discourse. The author points to the role of private actors vis-a-vis human rights as one of the most crucial and cross-cutting themes that needs to be addressed in order to advance human rights protection on the internet. Combining research themes that are often dealt with separately, this book will appeal to civil society organizations, journalists, and policy makers in the field of internet and communication policy making. The book's overview of internet-related academic discourse combined with human rights-based policy analysis will be useful for scholars, students, and practitioners working within these fields.

Financial Crime and Gambling in a Virtual World - A New Frontier in Cybercrime (Hardcover): Clare Chambers-Jones Financial Crime and Gambling in a Virtual World - A New Frontier in Cybercrime (Hardcover)
Clare Chambers-Jones; As told to Henry Hillman
R2,329 Discovery Miles 23 290 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

In this unique book, the authors examine the relationship between real world legislation and new advancements in technology, showing how this can lead to loopholes in legislative protection. They draw on empirical research to highlight the jurisprudential issues relating to economic internet crime and digital currencies. Advancements in technology have seen gambling behaviour transverse a new path. The law has not kept pace with such advances, leaving grey areas of concern undiscussed and unregulated.The authors provide a critical discussion on laws relating to gambling in virtual worlds, commenting that terms such as 'virtual' or 'fantasy' are unhelpful in promoting effective legislation. The discussion reveals how virtual world gambling can lead on to other criminal acts within virtual worlds, and specifically examines the notion of cybercrime, economic internet crime and the problems associated with digital currencies. The book concludes by presenting the case for joined up national and international legislation to tackle virtual world crimes effectively. This distinctive study will appeal to researchers and advanced students with an interest in cybercrime, economic internet crime and virtual economies. Practitioners, policy-makers and law enforcement officers will find this book informative in promoting suitable legislation to encompass new technologies in economic crime.

Richard Susskind
R522 R480 Discovery Miles 4 800 Save R42 (8%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

In Online Courts and the Future of Justice, Richard Susskind, the world's most cited author on the future of legal services, shows how litigation will be transformed by technology and proposes a solution to the global access-to-justice problem. In most advanced legal systems, the resolution of civil disputes takes too long, costs too much, and the process is not just antiquated; it is unintelligible to ordinary mortals. The courts of some jurisdictions are labouring under staggering backlogs - 100 million cases in Brazil, 30 million in India. More people in the world now have internet access than access to justice. Drawing on almost 40 years in the fields of legal technology and jurisprudence, Susskind shows how we can use the remarkable reach of the internet (more than half of humanity is now online) to help people understand and enforce their legal rights. Online courts provide 'online judging' - the determination of cases by human judges but not in physical courtrooms. Instead, evidence and arguments are submitted through online platforms through which judges also deliver their decisions. Online courts also use technology to enable courts to deliver more than judicial decisions. These 'extended courts' provide tools to help users understand relevant law and available options, and to formulate arguments and assemble evidence. They offer non-judicial settlements such as negotiation and early neutral evaluation, not as an alternative to the public court system but as part of it. A pioneer of online courts, Susskind maintains that they will displace much conventional litigation. He rigorously assesses the benefits and drawbacks, and looks ahead, predicting how AI, machine learning, and virtual reality will likely come to dominate court service.

Steven Baker, Lawrence Akka, Rachel Glass
R4,392 Discovery Miles 43 920 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

IT Contracts and Dispute Management provides in-depth analysis of the legal issues that customers and suppliers involved in a technology project can face at each of its critical stages. The authors offer a practitioner's-eye view of both the impact of those issues and how to resolve them or minimise their effect. Key features include: * guidance on all stages of a technology project presented in the order in which they typically occur * discussion of the tender process, preparation of contract terms and project delivery * advice on how to manage commonly occurring issues, such as delayed delivery * insight into potential methods of project 'resuscitation' when difficulties arise * advice on 'end of project' issues, including termination options, formal resolution of disputes and quantification of losses * first-hand insights drawing on the authors' extensive personal experiences throughout. This new work is the first thorough examination of the legal framework underpinning IT contracts and technology projects. It focuses on English contract law as it applies in this specific context, but combines a detailed legal analysis of common law principles with commercial and tactical guidance, making it suitable for lawyers worldwide. It will be a valuable resource for lawyers in private practice who are advising clients on the avoidance or resolution of disputes arising from IT projects, and to in-house legal counsel who advise on the procurement, supply, or management of IT projects.

Rethinking the Jurisprudence of Cyberspace (Hardcover): Chris Reed, Andrew Murray Rethinking the Jurisprudence of Cyberspace (Hardcover)
Chris Reed, Andrew Murray
R2,333 Discovery Miles 23 330 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Cyberspace is a difficult area for lawyers and lawmakers. With no physical constraining borders, the question of who is the legitimate lawmaker for cyberspace is complex. Rethinking the Jurisprudence of Cyberspace examines how laws can gain legitimacy in cyberspace and identifies the limits of the law's authority in this space. Two key questions are central to the book: Who has authority to make laws within cyberspace and how do laws in cyberspace achieve legitimacy? Chris Reed and Andrew Murray answer these questions by examining the jurisprudential principles that explain law in the physical world and rethinking them for the cyberworld. In doing so they establish that cyberlaw is more similar to traditional law than previously thought, but that establishing legitimate authority is quite different. This book provides the first thorough examination of the jurisprudence of cyberspace law, asking why any law should be obeyed and how the rule of law is to be maintained there. Academics and researchers who are interested in the regulation of cyberspace will find this to be a compelling study. More broadly, it will appeal to those researching in the fields of transnational legal studies, jurisprudence and legal thought.

Media, Conflict, and the State in Africa (Hardcover): Nicole Stremlau Media, Conflict, and the State in Africa (Hardcover)
Nicole Stremlau
R2,083 Discovery Miles 20 830 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Countries emerging from violent conflict face difficult challenges about what the role of media should be in political transitions, particularly when attempting to build a new state and balance a difficult legacy. Media, Conflict, and the State in Africa discusses how ideas, institutions and interests have shaped media systems in some of Africa's most complex state and nation-building projects. This timely book comes at a turbulent moment in global politics as waves of populist protests gain traction, and concerns continue to grow about fake news, social media echo chambers, and the increasing role of both traditional and new media in waging wars or influencing elections. Focusing on comparative cases from a historical perspective and the choices and ideas that informed the approaches of some of Africa's leaders, including guerrilla commanders Yoweri Museveni of Uganda and Meles Zenawi of Ethiopia, Nicole Stremlau offers a unique political insight into the development of contemporary media systems in Africa.

Mateja Steinbruck Platise, Carolyn Moser, Anne Peters
R3,350 Discovery Miles 33 500 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), the world's largest regional security organisation, possesses most of the attributes traditionally ascribed to an international organisation, but lacks a constitutive treaty and an established international legal personality. Moreover, OSCE decisions are considered mere political commitments and thus not legally binding. As such, it seems to correspond to the general zeitgeist, in which new, less formal actors and forms of international cooperation gain prominence, while traditional actors and instruments of international law are in stagnation. However, an increasing number of voices - including the OSCE participating states - have been advocating for more formal and autonomous OSCE institutional structures, for international legal personality, or even for the adoption of a constitutive treaty. The book analyses why and how these demands have emerged, critically analyses the reform proposals and provides new arguments for revisiting the OSCE legal framework.

R4,472 Discovery Miles 44 720 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The generation and use of data in society has seen exponential growth in recent years. The emergent field of data science, concerned with understanding and analyzing this data, can be applied to applications spanning from healthcare and urban planning to smart household devices. The legal questions which accompany the rise of these technologies, however, remains underexplored. Breaking new ground this Research Handbook maps the legal implications of the emergence of data science. Drawing on comparative perspectives, this Research Handbook approaches the subject from different legal domains, considering the possibilities and limitations of the current legal framework. Reflecting on whether further regulation is needed to address the ethical and legal problems raised by data science, the contributors examine how the practice is, and should be, regulated and how it influences the law, judiciary, and legal research. The book makes a vital contribution to the emerging field of data science and law as a discipline, and covers data science methodologies and tools essential for both legal practice and scholarship. The Research Handbook in Data Science and Law will be an important resource for students interested in data and technology law, as well as for legal scholars and practitioners in the field. Data scientists seeking an introduction to the law surrounding the field will also find this Research Handbook invaluable.
