The doctrine of moral rights is based on the idea that authors have a special bond with their own creative work. At present, the legal status of moral rights demands clarification and assessment as never before, as the international expansion of moral rights occurs in the new environment of digital technology. Just as the survival of copyright law depends on its capacity to adapt effectively to the new technological environment, a new approach to moral rights is also necessary. Moral Rights: Principles Practice and New Technology is the first work to comprehensively address the role of moral rights in an environment of digital technology, identifying the challenges and confronting moral rights in a digital environment. The challenges are addressed in both practical and theoretical terms, and examples drawn from the legislation and practice of key jurisdictions around the world. Moral Rights concludes with a consideration of how the concept of moral rights can contribute to the re-shaping of copyright law in a digital context.
International Copyright: Principles, Law, and Practice surveys and analyzes the legal doctrines affecting copyright practice around the world, in both transactional and litigation settings. It provides a step-by-step methodology for advising clients involved in exploiting creative works in or from foreign countries. Written by two of the most esteemed experts of copyright law in the United States and Europe, this volume is a unique synthesis of copyright law and practice, taking into account the Berne Convention, the TRIPs Agreement, the ongoing harmonization of copyright in the European Union, and the impact of the Internet. National copyright rules on protectible subject matter, ownership, term, and rights are covered in detail and compared from country to country, as are topics on moral rights and neighboring rights. Separate sections cover such important topics as territoriality, national treatment and choice of law, as well as the treaty and trade arrangements that underlie substantive copyright norms. International Copyright is an indispensable reference work for professionals involved with international copyright transactions or litigation, and is essential reading for copyright scholars.

Compiled specifically with students and newcomers in mind, this book explores the various ways in which societies, technologies, and environments shape one another. Readers will learn to appreciate the ways that philosophy informs our understanding of technology, and to see how technology relates to ethics, politics, nature, human nature, computers, science, food, and animals.
The first edition of Food Processing Technology was quickly adopted as the standard text by many food science and technology courses. While keeping with the practice of covering the wide range of food processing techniques, this new edition has been substantially expanded to take account of the advances in technology that have taken place since the publication of the first edition. The Second Edition includes new chapters on computer control of processing, novel 'minimal' technologies, and Ohmic heating, and an extended chapter on modified atmosphere packaging. It is a comprehensive - yet basic - text that offers an overview of most unit operations, while at the same time providing details of the processing equipment, operating conditions and the effects of processing on the biochemistry of foods. The book is divided into five parts, in which unit operations are grouped according to the nature of the heat transfer that takes place. Each chapter describes the formulae required for calculation of processing parameters, sample problems, and the effects on sensory characteristics and nutritional properties of selected foods. By combining food processing theory and calculations with descriptions of commercial practice and results of scientific studies, Food Processing Technology: Principles and Practice, Second Edition helps readers make attractive saleable products and extend the shelf-life of foods.
"The development of Artificial Intelligence has brought with it many new questions, not least the legal, moral and ethical implications of the technology. This book not only looks at present-day answers to questions but offers much original material." "Some of the material may seem controversial at present. Nevertheless, as the questions posed are tested in real life, the author believes many of the ideas may soon become the accepted wisdom." "This book will interest those studying Information Technology, Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Science, as well as Philosophy and Jurisprudence. In addition, the ideas are highly relevant to legal professionals who are likely to be involved in the implications of computer technology, now and in the future."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Over the years, photographs have enjoyed a variety of forms of protection, but traditionally the protection of photographs has been placed within the law of copyright. While photography as a technique has been around for 150 years, protection issues in photography, as in copyright in general, have been complicated in recent years by the advent of new technology, enabling the digital storage, alteration, and reproduction of images and facilitating their global dissemination via the Internet. Until now, very little has been written in English about the protection of photographs. This work provides an overview of the law and history of photograph protection in 16 jurisdictions. Each country chapter provides a survey of the major issues of photographic protection, broken down for easy reference into eight sections: definition originality authorship and ownership term of protection economic rights moral rights contracts the relationship of copyright with privacy and publicity rights. This book will be of great interest to anyone concerned about the discrepancies within the copyright protection scheme in an age of increasing globalisation. In particular, it will be useful for copyright lawyers, collecting societies, photographers, photograph agencies and publishers seeking clear information about the copyright implications of photographs.INFORMATION LAW SERIES 7
