              Intellectual property is at the centre of the new economy. New economy products are characterised by declining average costs over a range of output, high rates of innovation, and network effects. The return deriving from IPRs is directly correlated to the duration as well as the ...scope of those rights. The center of IP rights has moved further and further upstream over the past century, to the point of now protecting living organisms, basic research tools, and procedural methods as well as mathematical algorithms and databases. Globalisation and the exploitation of ICT open up opportunities for promoting democracy and wealth in poorer countries. Efficiency-seeking FDI increases competitiveness and the trademark of the competition law is the protection of those principles and practices which facilitate the efficient functioning of markets. Capital flows, in particular FDI, are one of the crucial components of globalisation and international integration. FDIs capitulate more benefits than other types of financial flows in addition to increasing domestic capital stock. This book describes in detail the law and economics of IPRs.

              Arbitration is one form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). It must be taken into account that ADR was envisioned as an alternative to litigation, with its own manifest of substantive and procedural characteristics. To that extent, arbitration enhances access to justice by p...ermitting claimants to bring claims they could not afford to bring to court. International commercial arbitration is a legally binding dispute resolution process that substitutes for domestic courts. Arbitration began as an extrajudicial mechanism for resolving disputes. Arbitration took its rise in the very infancy of Society as a private and self-contained method, distinctive from litigation and not as a postscript to the development of public courts. Has this fact been shared by state legislation and modern arbitration practice or has arbitration been developed into an appendage of the courts? Merchants established arbitration tribunals because they felt that the courts were not sufficiently knowledgeable about commercial customs and were exceptionally slow and unwieldy. National arbitration, international commercial arbitration, and investor-state arbitration have developed on parallel but separate tracks, each reacting to different political, economic, and social settings. Although arbitration is a quasi-judicial proceeding, it is not conducted with the same degree of formality as a judicial proceeding within the United States which means that the spirit of arbitration is the parties freedom from the strict structure of ordinary judicial proceedings. Arbitration has to guarantee legal certainty, predictability, and settlement being costless. The emergence of many non-independent arbitral tribunals creates a Gordian knot by merely adding more work for courts in order to deal with so many requests for intervention in arbitrations. The current perplexing between arbitration and courts causes only confusion, profit chances for many people and less quick and cheap justice. In addition, arbit

              Economics & Law on Competition in 21st Century Globalization (Paperback)

              21st century globalisation is distinguished by institutional and political reforms in many countries such as gradual trade liberalisation and international co-ordination of policies. This author considers globalisation as a non-stop process leading to the convergence of the civil...isations, lower cost of production, controlled freedom of communications, guarded advancements of technology, shrinking of distances via advanced transportation means and the economic funds utilise their powers demolishing any local lawful revolutionary efforts exploiting the globe with a fairly democratic way at present. The global economic funds should avoid a gradually undemocratic exploitation of the globe in order to bypass/avoid a global conflict looming in the end of the road of an autocratic globalisation lacking any ethical values. Moreover, globalisation has created centres of power that are alongside, even in competition, with the power of states. Innovation demands extensive up-front R&D costs and strong intellectual property protection is not disconnected from competition principles, but rather, is a vital part of antitrust policy as a whole. Sound intellectual property rights protection creates the competitive environment required to allow companies to profit from their inventions, which encourages innovation efforts.

              The regulation of insider trading prohibits insiders from using inside information in securities transactions, and the central goal of the regulator is to preclude non-public information from circulating in the stock markets. The goal of legislation against insider trading is the... same as that of legislation against market manipulation, making certain the integrity of EU financial markets and so boosting investor confidence in those markets. Market manipulation and insider trading are interrelated and based on circulation of information, and so cyberspace & e-logistics of information could be the key to neutralising people from taking advantage of their privilege to govern information within a company. Insider trading moves prices because outsiders decode information from the trade itself. Insider trading increases capital costs for the reason that insider trading raises the cost to market-makers in a companys securities relative to other companies, decreasing the anticipated return to uninformed shareholders. Corporate insiders are clearly informed about their own firms. The insiders outperformance derives from either their analytical skill or the handling of superior information about their companies when trading. Insiders benefit from unexpected losses on top of gains and so have a perverse incentive to trigger the company to under-perform if insider trading is permitted. Securities are vital, not only as investment vehicles, but also as devices for corporate control. A peaceful European Revolution should bring forward European nations and the USE/European Federation, which can deal with insider trading, criminal law, and other political/economical components in a harmonious way while avoiding any conflict among the various jurisdictions taking place in the present EU.

              Globalisation is characterised by the increase of MNEs, an increased role for international financial institutions, and/or an explosion of multilateral agreements and arrangements. Vertical integration mirrors the spatial dispersal of supplies, raw materials, crucial inputs and i...ntermediate products. MNEs reach advantages owing to both vertical and horizontal integration. Global network organisations more and more perceive the relocation of HQ activities as the next movement in the optimisation of their global networks. The EU should be transformed into a federation, the United States of Europe (USE), with a common federal economy solving current political, societal and economic problems within EU. The United States of Europe (USE) would be a much more attractive environment for the location of MNEs with all advantages for the whole EU area, such as transfer of technology. MUNUEPSILONs shift income into low-tax states through transfer pricing and debt financing. There is a swift development and emergence of e-MNEs on such things as line shops and emergence of e-logistics, but there is a long distance towards a real overwhelming spread of e-MNEs. Risk management has become more and more important in the financial industry. The business of global governance is set to become one of the key international policy issues of the twenty-first century.

              Europe is currently caught in a malfunction triangle between national politics, European policies, and global markets. Moreover, the democratic politics of the EU have remained national. Moreover, a single currency has been established without establishing a set of institutions t...o facilitate any regions of Europe to operate efficiently. The European area has been going through a lengthened period of weak economic activity and very low inflation, and there is a need to strengthen its Economic and Monetary Union, based on political stability, so as to upsurge its resilience to economic shocks. To that extent, uncertainty and political fragmentation have been amplified significantly in the aftermath of financial crises, which have been economically destructive, making crisis resolution more problematic. The crisis across Europe has led to a failure in confidence in European institutions, leading to political fragmentation of positions among Member States, and stirring up nationalistic instincts. This has impeded decision-making, averting the formation of a common growth strategy. Nevertheless, it is essential to move towards the establishment of the United States of Europe in order to avoid the collapse and disintegration of the EU.

              Globalization is the phenomenon of improved integration of the world economy as evidenced by the growth of international trade and factor mobility. Globalization involves primarily liberalization of trade in goods and services, and a free movement of direct and portfolio capital.... Nowadays, globalization is distinguished in part because of the major role of information technology and cyberspace. Cyberspace includes a range of places connected to real space in many different ways. A communications network changes the character of existing space. Thus, changes in the ways that information is experienced and the ways that economic, political, and personal dealings are structured, change the nature of real space. There is a shift from international law to law and globalization providing a new incentive for erasing the artificial boundary between public and private international law. Despite the fact that international financial institutions and MNEs are the engines of economic globalization, powerful states remain the vital drivers. Global governance is defined as the amount of laws, norms, policies, and institutions that identify, constitute, and mediate trans-border relations between states, cultures, citizens, intergovernmental and nongovernmental organizations, and the market. Corporate governance focuses wholly on protecting the interests of equity claimants in a company, expanding its focus to deal with the problems of stakeholders or non shareholder constituencies. New communication and circulation technologies together with the elimination of trade and investment barriers have shaped global markets with global competition for corporate control, commodities, services and capital. MNEs taking up a transnational strategy seek to achieve concurrently global effectiveness and local responsiveness with the assets and activities dispersed but specialized.

              Governance designates all regulations intended for organization and centralization of human societies on a global scale. The management of corporations organizes the efforts of individuals in order to achieve aims and objectives using available resources inventively and efficient...ly. Risk management is a practice of steadily choosing cost-effective tactics for diminishing the consequence of threat realization to the corporation which cannot be evaded for the reason that there are financial and practical limits, which means the acceptance of some degree of residual risks. Cyberspace strengthens national and global governance. E-business involves the total digitization of value chains and business processes, and serving traditional organizations creates new value and reach up to that time unattained heights of operational and financial excellence. E-technology and e-commerce produce new challenges for both risk management and corporate governance which could be solved by effective utilization of a continuous development of the means of risk management such as information technology, logistics, networks and a constantly improved ERM in order to comply with the new developments. A highly educated personnel controlled by an effective human resources management is a prime means for accomplishment of effective risk management and corporate governance in a 21st century digital economy.
