The Digital Dilemma

Imagine sending a magazine article to 10 friends - making photocopies, putting them in envelopes, adding postage, and mailing them. Now consider how much easier it is to send that article to those 10 friends as an attachment to e-mail. Or to post the article on your own site on the World Wide Web. The ease of modifying or copying digitized material and the proliferation of computer networking have raised fundamental questions about copyright and patent - intellectual property protections rooted in the U.S. Constitution. Hailed for quick and convenient access to a world of material, the Internet also poses serious economic issues for those who create and market that material. If people can so easily send music on the Internet for free, for example, who will pay for music? This book presents the multiple facets of digitized intellectual property, defining terms, identifying key issues, and exploring alternatives. It follows the complex threads of law, business, incentives to creators, the American tradition of access to information, the international context, and the nature of human behavior. Technology is explored for its ability to transfer content and its potential to protect intellectual property rights. The book proposes research and policy recommendations as well as principles for policymaking.

Argumentation Methods for Artificial Intelligence in Law

Use of argumentation methods applied to legal reasoning is a relatively new field of study. Many vitally important problems of legal reasoning can be profitably studied in light of these new methods, even if they cannot all be solved in any single monograph. This book provides a survey of the leading problems, and outlines how future research using argumentation-based methods show great promise of leading to useful solutions. The problems studied include not only these of argument evaluation and argument invention, but also analysis of specific kinds of evidence commonly used in law, like witness testimony, circumstantial evidence, forensic evidence and character evidence. New tools for analyzing these kinds of evidence are introduced, like argument diagramming, abductive reasoning, an analysis of conditional relevance and a new dialectical model of explanation.

United States Water Law

Determining U.S. Water Rights: Different Systems for Different Needs United States Water Law: An Introduction is a concise overview of law and policy related to U.S. water rights and regulation of water quantity and quality. This wide-ranging book reviews the two major systems used to determine rights in the western and eastern states. It explores these different systems, which are based on the divergent factors affecting the two regions a " the immense amount of government-owned property and arid conditions in the west, and ownership of riparian land in the east. The author also covers western states that adhere to the "hybrid" system, which recognizes early riparian rights predating adoption of later appropriation systems, and he explains that most states recognize at least some riparian rights to the use of surface water. Special sections detail regulatory considerations such as Native American rights, environmental regulation, nuisance and tort law, and social theory.

Forensic Science

Forensic science (often Known as forensics) is the application of a broad spectrum of sciences and technologies to investigate and establish facts of interest in relation to criminal or civil law. There is little rigorous research to support its accuracy and reliability.The word forensic comes from the Latin forensis, meaning "of or before the forum."In Roman times, a criminal charge meant presenting the case before a group of public individuals in the forum. Both the person accused of the crime and the accuser would give speeches based on their sides of the story. The individual with the best argument and delivery would determine the outcome of the case. This origin is the source of the two modern usages of the word forensic as a form of legal evidence and as a category of public presentation.

The Logic of Liberal Rights

The Logic of Liberal Rights uses basic logic to develop a model of argument presupposed in all disputes about civil rights and liberties. No prior training in logic is required, as each step is explained. This analysis does not merely apply general logic to legal arguments but is also specifically tailored to the issues of civil rights and liberties. It shows that all arguments about civil rights and liberties presuppose one fixed structure and that there can be no original argument in rights disputes, except within the confines of that structure.

Economics Ethics And The Environment

The UK Environmental Law Association (UKELA) holds a conference each year to bring together academics and practitioners,lawyers and environmental experts from other disciplines - within both science and social science. It is a unique event providing a forum for discussion of the most pressing issues of environmental regulation, and provides a unique combination of analysis and practical application.

Maritime Security International Law and Policy Perspectives from Australia and New Zealand

This volume reflects the work of the Trans-Tasman Maritime Security Project, which comprises a group of Australian and New Zealand scholars with back- grounds in international law, international relations and maritime security. Our aim has been to identify the issues that particularly affect Australia and New Zealands maritime security and to undertake research that evaluates those issues from legal and political perspectives, and propose methods for improving mari- time security in the two countries. While the focus of the work is Australia and New Zealand, the scope extends to regional considerations (addressing matters related to Pacific island states, South East Asia and the Antarctic and sub- Antarctic region), strategic partnerships (in examining the influence of the United States) and analyses issues within the broad framework of international law and politics (as opposed to a purely domestic focus).

Serial Killers: The Method and Madness of Monsters

Serial Killers: The Method and Madness of Monsters is a non-fiction true crime history by Peter Vronsky, a criminal justice historian. It surveys the history of serial homicide, its culture, psychopathology and its investigation from the Roman Empire to the early 2000s. The book explores the rise of serial murder from its first early recorded instances in ancient Rome to medieval and Renaissance Europe, Victorian Britain and its rise and escalation in the United States and the world in the postmodern era. The book surveys a range of theoretical approaches to serial killers interspersed with dozens of detailed case studies of both notorious and less know serial murderers illustrating the theory. Considered by some a definitive history of serial homicide, it was the book that serial killer Dennis Rader, the BTK Killer, was reading when he was arrested in 2005.

Law, Love and Language

What is ethics all about? In this book Herbert McCabe suggests that it is about loving, obeying laws, and talking to people. In doing so, he offers an introduction to ethical thinking for anyone with a serious interest in moral philosophy. He does so as someone who writes with a Christian audience in mind. Most of his arguments, however, do not presuppose a believing Christian readership. McCabe, who died in 2001, was no ivory tower theologian. As a Christian thinker of astonishing originality, he was fully engaged with the world and its political and social realities and was able to comment on what it is for Christians to try to live ethically. He was also a gifted philosopher, as this book clearly indicates. So he was able to comment on human action and the difference between 'good' and 'bad' without seeming to 'preach to the choir'.

The Judicial Assessment of Expert Evidence

Justice systems increasingly rely on expert evidence. We are therefore obliged to justify the courts' ability to assess this evidence, especially when the courts must resolve disagreements between experts or address possible bias. By reintegrating contemporary evidence theory with applied philosophy, Deirdre Dwyer analyses the epistemological basis for the judicial assessment of expert evidence. Reintegrating evidence with procedure, she also examines how we might arrange our legal processes in order to support our epistemological and non-epistemological expectations. Including analysis of the judicial assessment of expert evidence in civil litigation (comparing practice in England and Wales with that in the United States, France, Germany and Italy), the book also provides the first detailed account of the historical development of English civil expert evidence and the first analysis of the use of party experts, single joint experts and assessors under the Civil Procedure Rules.

Secession

The end of the Cold War brought about new secessionist aspirations and the strengthening and re-awakening of existing or dormant separatist claims everywhere. The creation of a new independent entity through the separation of part of the territory and population of an existing State raises serious difficulties as to the role of international law. This book offers a comprehensive study of secession from an international law perspective, focusing on recent practice and applicable rules of contemporary international law. It includes theoretical analyses and a scrutiny of practice throughout the world by eighteen distinguished authors from Western and Eastern Europe, North and Sub-Saharan Africa, North and Latin America, and Asia. Core questions are addressed from different perspectives, and in some cases with divergent views. The reader is also exposed to a far-reaching picture of State practice, including some cases which are rarely mentioned and often neglected in scholarly analysis of secession.
