If people work hard and create or buy physical property such as houses, jewelry, cars or acquire money, they own that property in perpetuity, and can bequeath it to their. We would be outraged if someone said that other people could have "fair use" of our homes or that our right to bequeath our family heirlooms would expire 70 years after our death. Yet, for the owners and creators of intellectual property, the notions of "fair use" and copyright expiration both limit the rights of creators to dispose of their own intellectual creations as they wish.

Imagine the situation of a novelist who spends three to five years writing a book. This is a huge investment of time and labor, equivalent to the labor of someone who spends the same number of years working in a corporate job. The value of the novel, like the value of anything else, is a function of the amount of labor going into it. Audience members have only the rights to a novel or movie or music that they specifically purchase. The idea that it is "fair" to make copies without the permission of the creator of the work is the same as saying that I should have "fair" use of someone else's house or money.

The negative side of weakening of copyright and advocacy of "fair use" is that it reduces the incentives of people to invest time in creating high quality work that audiences can enjoy. The less creators earn from their work, the faster they must produce it to earn a living, meaning the lower the quality. It is in everyone's interest to protect the rights of creators so that they can earn an adequate living from their work and continue to produce the works we all enjoy.

Socialization is an important solution as police officers tend to become the police officers they are socialized to be. The two most important components of the socialization process are formal training and informal “peer group” instruction of young officers. It is the role of leadership to refine this socialization. The preface to this is a vigorous selection of recruits. What is also required is that there is a clear indication of a positive shift from the old attitude, beliefs and processes within the JCF to a new organization, with new management and leadership. This can be achieved via a name change from JCF to the “Jamaican law Enforcers.”...

...The law Overview of Australian contract law Formation A contract is a promise or a set of promises that is legally binding. In this context a promise is an undertaking by one person to do something or refrain from doing something if another person does something or refrains from doing something or makes a promise in return. A promise or set of promises will be legally binding if certain criteria are met. In Australia this requires that there be an agreement (comprising an offer and acceptance), consideration, intention to create legal relations, compliance with any legal formalities and that the parties have the legal capacity to contract. Agreement Consideration Intention Capacity Formalities Scope and Content A contract is generally only enforceable by and against parties to the contract. This section considers the issue of privity of contract. This section also considers the content of a contract; once formed, how do you determine what the terms of the contract are? How should the various terms by classified and how should they be interpreted in cases of ambiguity? Exclusion clauses are given special attention here. Privity of contract Terms Construction Classification Exclusion clauses Avoidance / Vitiating Factors A contract validly formed may nevertheless be avoided as a result of a number of possible 'vitiating factors'. Most of these involve some form of unfair or unconscionable dealing by one of the parties.......

Facing giants like Wal-mart, BP, Circle-K, and Exxon Mobil, Phillips 66 and many other retail chains like yours often results in competition operating across the street from one another. So in this type of industry that has a saturated market of convenience, how do you make profit and retain customer loyalty through business strategies that differentiate you from the competition? Does it begin in the gas price? Perhaps it begins with the sale of milk with cookies? No, I think it begins with business intelligence that tells you the customer sees the lower gas price, stops in to pay for and sees the coffee and donut deal that further lowers his cost of gas. How does all that happen? According to an Oracle White paper “Daily Business Intelligence requires an information delivery environment that offers advanced analytics that are easy to use.”(Mirani, Jagdish) This business intelligence often filters through many departments before it ever reaches the executive decision makers, which ultimately leads......

Applied Legal Concepts in Healthcare Law

...Applied Legal Concepts in Healthcare Law Brewster v. University Hospital This paragraph will include a summary from the case which was obtained from the Healthcare Law Writing Assignment. In December 31, 1987 the Brewster’s had a daughter Emma that was born a week premature. Emma was transported to Children’s Hospital Medical Center the next day when she began showing signs of respiratory distress. She was treated by Dr. Craig Jackson, a neonatologist employed by the University of Washington. Emma suffered from hyperbilirubinemia, or jaundice, caused by elevated levels of bilirubin, a substance that is released into the bloodstream. Jaundice is not uncommon among infants as approximately a third or more of all newborns at the intensive care unit at Children’s hospital have jaundice. Greatly elevated bilirubin levels can result in permanent in brain damage. When Emma was admitted to Children’s Hospital, her serum bilirubin level was 4.2 micrograms per deciliter. It gradually increased to as high as 22.0 mcg/dl on January 7, 1988, then decreased to 5.7 mcg/dl on January 18, 1988. The type of jaundice Emma experience is generally treated with phototherapy. More serious cases are treated with a transfusion of all the blood in the infant’s body, a treatment entailing greater risks including cardiac arrhythmia, bleeding, bacterial infection and the development of air bubbles in the circulatory system. Dr. Martin prescribed phototherapy for Emma, which was unsuccessful, and......

...CAN FIND THE ANSWERS TO THE EVEN-NUMBERED FOR REVIEW QUESTIONS ON THIS TEXT’S WEB SITE AT WWW.CENGAGE.COM/BLAW/BLT. WE REPEAT THESE ANSWERS HERE AS A CONVENIENCE TO YOU. 1A Sources of Law Primary sources of law are sources that establish the law. In the United States, these include the U.S. Constitution and the state constitutions, statues passed by Congress and the state legislatures, regulations created by administrative agencies, and court decisions, or case law. 2A COMMON LAW TRADITION Because of our colonial heritage, much of American law is based on the English legal system. In that system, after the Norman conquest, the king’s courts sought to establish a uniform set of rules for the entire country. What evolved in these courts was the common law—a body of general legal principles that applied throughout the entire English realm. Courts developed the common law rules from the principles underlying judges’ decisions in actual legal controversies. 3A Precedent Judges attempt to be consistent, and when possible, they base their decisions on the principles suggested by earlier cases. They seek to decide similar cases in a similar way and consider new cases with care, because they know that their conflicting decisions make new law. Each interpretation becomes part of the law on the subject and serves as a legal precedent—a decision that furnishes an example or authority for deciding subsequent cases involving similar legal principles or facts. A court will......
