As a result of the digital revolution and the ever-increasing use of the internet, discussions around the conflict between copyright and the public domain are more prevalent than ever before. While these discussions have been hotly debated by legal scholars and in blogs and online forums, Terms of Use is one of the first books to concentrate on the conceptual foundations of the public domain. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, Eva Hemmungs Wirtén reveals the nineteenth-century origins of contemporary phenomena such as blogs, wikis, the "Creative Commons," as well as the "Open Source" and "Open Access" movements. Hemmungs Wirtén examines topics as diverse as the pharmaceutical uses of plants, the patenting of DNA sequences, and Disney's reworking of Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Books in order to provide a frank theoretical discussion of how nature and culture have been transformed into intellectual property. Timely and provocative, Terms of Use will challenge and inspire readers by providing an original and innovative approach to the understanding of the public domain and its origins.

The Rhetoric of Religious Cults takes as its departure point the notion that 'cults' have a distinctive language and way of recruiting members. First outlining a rhetorical framework, which encompasses contemporary discourse analysis, the persuasive texts of three movements - Scientology, Jehovah's Witnesses and Children of God - are analysed in detail and their discourse compared with other kinds of recruitment literature. Cults' distinctive negative profile in society is not matched by a linguistic typology. Indeed, this negative profile seems to rest on the semantics and application of the term 'cult' itself.

Der Erstling von Matthew FitzSimmons wurde in den USA ein riesiger Bestseller. Vor zehn Jahren verschwand die damals 14-jährige Suzanne Lombard. Spurlos. Wurde Suzanne ermordet? Oder von einem Pädophilen gekidnappt? Hält man sie seit Jahren gefangen? Als Suzannes Vater für das Amt des US-Präsidenten kandidiert, tauchen plötzlich neue rätselhafte Hinweise auf ihren Verbleib auf. Diese Spuren kann womöglich nur ein Mensch entschlüsseln: Gibson Vaughn, der mit Suzanne aufwuchs und die für ihn wie eine kleine Schwester war. Für Vaughn, Ex-Marine, Computerfreak, arbeitslos, wird die Suche nach Suzanne zu einer gefahrvollen Reise in die Vergangenheit. Stück für Stück setzt er das Puzzle zusammen, bis die entsetzliche Wahrheit am Ende sein eigenes Leben bedroht. Falls Sie ein Fan von harten Thrillern mit tiefen Emotionen in der Art von Lee Child, Dennis Lehane oder Harlan Coben sind: Zugreifen! The Washington Post: »FitzSimmons hat einen Soziopathen geschaffen, der es in sich hat.« Crimespree Magazine: »Ein höllisches Debüt ...« Matthew FitzSimmons aus Illinois, USA, wuchs in London auf. Seine idyllische Kindheit wurde 1977 erschüttert, als er die traumatische Erfahrung machte, dass sein Vater während der Vorführung von Star Wars schnarchte und er deshalb befürchtete, adoptiert worden zu sein. Matthew schloss ein Studium der Psychologie ab, obwohl seine ganze Leidenschaft dem Theater galt. Nach einigen Jahren in New York zog es ihn nach China. Dort schrieb er seinen ersten Roman (über den besser geschwiegen wird). Jetzt lebt er in Washington, D. C., und lehrt an einer privaten High School englische Literatur und Theater.

Days before expanding into China, Circles suffers a devastating cyberattack--and a key executive is brutally murdered. As he fights to save the company he helped build, top engineer Sergio Mansour uncovers evidence of a massive conspiracy that turns the power of Circles against its users.

Desperate to clear his name, Sergio turns to Malina Olson, a beautiful and headstrong doctor who has an agenda of her own. Now, he and Malina must survive long enough to expose the truth in a world without hiding places, where a single keystroke can shift the global balance of power.

Masterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Jura - Andere Rechtssysteme, Rechtsvergleichung, Note: B, University of Auckland, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: This paper deals with the non-use of registered trade marks. It mainly focuses on the trade mark system of New Zealand; however it compares this with selected issues of foreign trade mark systems. Unexpectedly, the non-use of registered trade marks is a topic which closely relates to the vivid field of promotion, competition, and globalization, although it is embedded in the rather static system of registration and administration. The non-use of a registered trade mark enables the opposition to initiate a procedure of revocation from the trade mark register against the respective trade mark. With removal from the trade mark register the trade mark rights of the owner hereby granted cease. Therefore, the application of revocation from the trade mark register in terms of non-use is, beside other grounds for removal, a common tactic of competitors to shed blocking trade marks. This paper shall give an overview of the formal procedure of application, including the legal aspects of the requisite standing, the competent forum and the burden of proof. However, the main focus of this analysis encompasses the legal term and definition of the use (“genuine use”) of a trade mark. Unfortunately, New Zealand legislation as well as other Common Law and Civil Law jurisdictions gives minimal guidance on the interpretation of the term “genuine use”. Although, European jurisdiction created and confirmed a common understanding by pointing out some main criteria, this definition only constitutes a framework. Subsequently, the term has been formed through case-by-case decisions of national and overseas courts and the Intellectual Property Office. Therefore, this paper will provide different case examples of the jurisdiction of New Zealand and other jurisdictions. However, the line of cases will show the variety regarding the determination of “genuine use”. A comprehensive and universal definition of the term cannot be established. Actions made in respect of a trade mark can only be evaluated as “genuine use” in regard to the specific circumstances.

How are users influenced by social media platforms when they generate content, and does this influence affect users’ compliance with copyright laws? These are pressing questions in today’s internet age, and Regulating Content on Social Media answers them by analysing how the behaviours of social media users are regulated from a copyright perspective. Corinne Tan, an internet governance specialist, compares copyright laws on selected social media platforms, namely Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, Twitter and Wikipedia, with other regulatory factors such as the terms of service and the technological features of each platform. This comparison enables her to explore how each platform affects the role copyright laws play in securing compliance from their users. Through a case study detailing the content generative activities undertaken by a hypothetical user named Jane Doe, as well as drawing from empirical studies, the book argues that – in spite of copyright’s purported regulation of certain behaviours – users are 'nudged' by the social media platforms themselves to behave in ways that may be inconsistent with copyright laws. Praise for Regulating Content on Social Media 'This book makes an important contribution to the field of social media and copyright. It tackles the real issue of how social media is designed to encourage users to engage in generative practices, in a sense effectively “seducing” users into practices that involve misuse or infringement of copyright, whilst simultaneously normalising such practices.’ Melissa de Zwart, Dean of Law, Adelaide Law School, Australia "This timely and accessible book examines the regulation of content generative activities across five popular social media platforms – Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, Twitter and Wikipedia. Its in-depth, critical and comparative analysis of the platforms' growing efforts to align terms of service and technological features with copyright law should be of great interest to anyone studying the interplay of law and new media." Peter K. Yu, Director of the Center for Law and Intellectual Property, Texas A&M University
