The offensive Internet : speech, privacy, and reputation ( Book )
11 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 1,373 libraries worldwide
"The Internet has been romanticized as a zone of freedom. The alluring combination of sophisticated technology with low barriers to entry and instantaneous outreach to millions of users has mesmerized libertarians and communitarians alike. Lawmakers have joined the celebration, passing the Communications Decency Act, which enables Internet Service Providers to allow unregulated discourse without danger of liability, all in the name of enhancing freedom of speech. But an unregulated Internet is a breeding ground for offensive conduct." "At last we have a book that begins to focus on abuses made possible by anonymity, freedom from liability, and lack of oversight. The distinguished scholars assembled in this volume, drawn from law and philosophy, connect the absence of legal oversight with harassment and discrimination. Questioning the simplistic notion that abusive speech and mobocracy are the inevitable outcomes of new technology, they argue that current misuse is the outgrowth of social, technological, and legal choices. Seeing this clearly will help us to be better informed about our options." "In a field still dominated by a frontier perspective, this book has the potential to be a real game changer. Armed with example after example of harassment in Internet chat rooms, blogs, and forums, the authors detail some of the vile and hateful speech that the current combination of law and technology has bred. The facts are then treated to analysis and policy prescriptions. Read this book and you will never again see the Internet through rose-colored glasses."--Jacket

American Guy : masculinity in American law and literature ( Book )
10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 266 libraries worldwide
American Guy examines American norms of masculinity and their role in the law, bringing a range of methodological and disciplinary perspectives to the intersection of American gender, legal, and literary issues. The collection opens with a set of papers investigating "American Guys"--The heroic nonconformists and rugged individualists that populate much of American fiction. Diverse essays examine the manly men of Hemingway, Dreiser, and others, in their relation to the law, while also highlighting the underlying tensions that complicate this version of masculinity. A second set of papers examines "Outsiders"--men on the periphery of the American Guys who proclaim a different way of being male. These essays take up counter-traditions of masculinity ranging from gay male culture to Philip Roth's portrait of the Jewish lawyer. American Guy, a follow-up to Subversion and Sympathy, edited by Alison L. LaCroix and Martha C. Nussbaum, aims at reinvigorating the law-and-literature movement through original, cross-disciplinary insights. It embraces a variety of voices from both within and outside the academy, including several contributions from prominent judges. These contributions are particularly significant, not only as features unique to the field, but also for the light they throw on the federal bench. In the face of a large body of work studying judicial conduct as a function of rigid commitment to ideology, American Guy shows a side of the judiciary that is imaginatively engaged, aware of cultural trends, and reflective about the wider world and the role of the law in it. -- from dust jacket

How does law work? : Concentration and distribution strategies by Saul Levmore( visu )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"Two of the best ideas of the last half-century describe strategies for using legal remedies to solve social problems. One is the concentration of liability on a well-situated problem solver, or "least cost-avoider," who can always contract out the work to be done (thus reflecting Chicago's Very Best and Biggest Idea, the Coase Theorem). But another is the opposite of the first, for it involves the distribution, or spreading, of legal responsibility across many potential problem solvers, who might cooperate or work alone. Comparative negligence and Superfund liability for environmental harms reflect this strategy. This Chicago's Best Ideas talk explores this tug-of-war, or evolutionary pattern, involving the two opposing strategies. How does law know which to use? Most important, what is the likely evolution of law as citizens call on Big Government to solve their big problems, like climate change or access to health care, and how does technological change alter the likely balance between these two strategies?"--Soundcloud webpage for podcast
A public choice view of IP(rizes) by Saul Levmore( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Interest groups have played an important if unappreciated role in shaping intellectual property rights. As economies are driven by ideas, rather than manufactured goods, there is likely to be a reconfiguration of the incentives granted and withheld from innovators. The paper argues that prizes (rather than intellectual property rights) - including grants, subsidies, and various contractual promises - will increase in importance. The discussion includes prizes as substitutes for both patents and copyrights, and suggests that industries as diverse as pharmaceuticals and newsgathering are likely fields for an "iPrize Revolution." The change is the product of interest group forces and not necessarily efficient

Rethinking threats by Saul Levmore( file )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
"Threats are not merely the dark side of promises. They impose costs on those who receive them, and are likely to be particularly destructive when credible. This Article develops the factors that make for credibility in criminal, international, and other contexts. The credibility of a threat depends on the net cost of execution, subtleties regarding repeat play, and the calculus of secondary credibility - the likelihood that a threat will be carried out by the threatener or repeated by another party if the victim capitulates to the first. It then turns to situations in which a threatener can create credibility by dividing a threat into stages. A threat is often more credible if its execution has begun, so that the cost of completion is modest and now lower than the direct benefit expected from capitulation. Law itself, though designed to discourage threats and their execution, can perversely contribute to threatmaking by constituting just such a sunk cost, or first stage of a process. The implication is that in many situations law ought to focus its power on the final stage of a wrongdoer's plan."
