            The decisions courts make in constitutional rights cases pervade our political life and touch on our most basic interests and values. The spread of judicial review of legislation around the world means that courts are increasingly called on to settle matters of moral and politica...l controversy, including assisted suicide, data privacy, anti-terrorism measures, marriage, and abortion. But doubts regarding the institutional capacities of courts for deciding such questions are growing. Judges now regularly review social science research to assess whether a law will effectively achieve its aim, and at what cost to other interests. They cite studies and statistical information from psychology, sociology, medicine, and other disciplines in which they are rarely trained. This empirical reasoning proceeds alongside open-ended moral reasoning, with judges employing terms such as equality, liberty, and autonomy, then determining what these require in concrete circumstances. This book shows that courts were not designed for this kind of moral and empirical reasoning. It argues that in comparison to legislatures, the institutional capacities of courts are deficient. Legislatures are better equipped than courts for deliberating and decision-making in regard to the kinds of factual and moral issues that arise in constitutional rights cases. The book concludes by considering the implications of comparative institutional capacity for constitutional design. Is a system of judicial review of legislation something that constitutional framers should choose to adopt? If so, in what form? For countries with systems of judicial review, practical proposals are made to remedy deficiencies in the institutional capacities of courts.

            • Pre Release International

            This updated edition of a well-known comprehensive analysis of the criminalization of cyberattacks adds important new guidance to the legal framework on cybercrime, reflecting new legislation, technological developments, and the changing nature of cybercrime itself. The focus is ...not only on criminal law aspects but also on issues of data protection, jurisdiction, electronic evidence, enforcement, and digital forensics. It provides a thorough analysis of the legal regulation of attacks against information systems in the European, international, and comparative law contexts. Among the new and continuing aspects of cybersecurity covered are the following: the conflict of cybercrime investigation and prosecution with fundamental rights to privacy and freedom of expression; the 2016 Directive on security of network and information systems (NIS Directive); the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR); the role of national computer security incident response teams (CSIRTs); the European Union (EU) response to new technologies involving payment instruments, including virtual currencies and digital wallets; the EU Commission's legislative proposals to enhance cross-border gathering of electronic evidence; internet service providers' role in fighting cybercrime; measures combatting identity theft, spyware, and malware; states and legal persons as perpetrators of cybercrime; and the security and data breach notification as a compliance and transparency tool. Technical definitions, case laws, and analysis of both substantive law and procedural law contribute to a comprehensive understanding of cybercrime regulation and its current evolution in practice. Addressing a topic of growing importance in unprecedented detail, this new edition of a much-relied-upon resource will be welcomed by professionals and authorities dealing with cybercrime, including lawyers, judges, academics, security professionals, information technology experts, and law enforcement agencies.

            From Babylon to the Silicon Valley: The Origins and Evolution of Intellectual Property: A Sourcebook POD (Hardback)

            • Pre Release International

            From Babylon to the Silicon Valley-The Origins and Evolution of Intellectual Property A Sourcebook Nuno Pires de Carvalho At its core, intellectual property today is the same as it was six thousand years ago: an instrument for the assertion of the identities of merchants and manu...facturers in their struggle to lure customers with honesty and fairness. It arises spontaneously whenever and wherever entrepreneurs carry out their professions in an environment of competition. This masterful book, the first of its kind, presents more than two hundred sources going back to ancient Egypt, sharply detailing the evolution of intellectual property right up to its current prominence in global trade and international law. Highlighting important moments in the evolution of the intellectual property, the author-one of the world's best known authorities in the field-assembles his chosen sources in a way that sheds definitive light on such aspects as the following: early origins in the appropriation of differentiating assets by merchants and manufacturers; evolution of trademark law up to the adoption of the TRIPS Agreement; evolution of patent law, demonstrating in detail how English and U.S. courts moulded its modern interpretation; differentiation of industrial designs; the comparatively modern development of trade secrets law; origins and evolution of international protection through treaties and free trade agreements; and the prodigious expansion of intellectual property law in the past few decades to previously unprotected areas of business and professional activity. The sources-many translated into English for the first time-are preceded when appropriate by brief notes explaining their context and relevance. The book closes with a chapter on contemporary debates, such as new areas of protection and new social controversies. As a compilation of sources that would be otherwise unavailable to most readers, this factual and impartial account of why and how intellectual property ha

            This ground-breaking book offers an extensive legal analysis-grounded in public law, EU, and international law-of arms trade regulation, integrated with insights drawn from international relations. The sale of weapons and related technologies is, globally, one of the most politic...ally controversial and ethically contentious forms of commerce. Intimately connected with sustaining repressive governments and violations of international human rights and humanitarian law, arms exports are also a central element in the economic and strategic policies of the governments of all large industrial states. They have also been the source of abundant corruption, and of serious challenges to the norms and effectiveness of constitutional accountability in democratic states. On paper, the arms trade is heavily regulated: national legislation and international treaties are in place which purport to prohibit certain transactions and limit others. Yet despite its importance, legal and international relations scholarship on the subject has been surprisingly limited. This book fills this gap in the literature by examining and comparing the export control regimes of eight leading nations - the USA, Russia, the UK, France, Germany, Sweden, China, and India - with chapters contributed by leading experts in the field of law and international relations.

            This book examines the outcomes of a five-year ethnographic study of two North of England police forces; the prism through which to revisit the question of the regulation and legitimacy of police powers. Central to this study is the degree to which discretion still plays a centra...l role in the exercise of these powers. It shows how this reliance on discretionary powers is fraught with difficulty. The authors demonstrate that in order to effectively reform the exercise of these powers, the police service should be regarded as having a unique culture, where change and uncertainly are commonplace. It is only by recognising the unusual working practises of policing, can meaningful reform be achieved; making this book required reading for policy makers in the field of criminal justice.
