The offensive Internet : speech, privacy, and reputation by Martha Craven Nussbaum( Book )
19 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 1,385 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 280 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

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
Fault in contract law by Fault in Contract Law (Conference)( visu )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"Fault is the central organizing principle in areas of the law that deal with liability. But surprisingly, fault is largely considered alien to contract law. Indeed, breaking a promise creates liability even in the absence of fault, and the remedies available to the victim are believed not to be dependent on the breaching party's culpability. This fundamental idea of no fault is, and has been for ages, the dominant view in American contract law. It is boldly stated in the Restatement of Contracts, emphasized in treatises and textbooks, and taught to first-year law students in their first week of law school. The role for fault in contract breach varies significantly across legal regimes and over time. The rise of a fault principle (and "good faith") is considered by some as one of the fundamental changes in 20th century contract law, even within Anglo-American Law. Yet despite the "underground" existence of fault jurisprudence in contract law and despite the powerful justifications for this jurisprudence, the role of fault in contract law has merited only little scholarly attention in the United States. While there are some theoretical writings on the topic of good faith, especially in Europe, the issue of fault is significantly different and has yet to be more fully explored in the context of American contract law and American Legal Theory. This symposium reevaluates the role of fault in contract doctrine. Is it immoral to breach a contract? Should the intent ("mens rea") of the breaching party matter? Should the courts, in general, view more harshly parties' faulty behavior? Does the idea of "efficient breach" require a no-fault regime? What is the proper role of victims' contributory fault? In exploring these and related issues, the symposium intends to bring together a variety of perspectives. While many of the contributions to the symposium are from experts in the study of law-and-markets, prominently utilizing the "law and economics" perspective, other views--some of which are strongly opposed to the economic approach--will also be included."--Conference webpage
Insuring against terrorism--and crime by Kyle D Logue( Book )
2 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"This Article argues that the particular mix responses the government has chosen with respect to 9/11, including the September 11th Victims' Compensation Fund and the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act of 2002, will significantly affect private expectations about the government's response to future terrorist attacks. One aim of this Article is to explore the relationships between promised or expected government actions (or inactions) and private decisions regarding terrorism risk. These issues lead to some novel ideas about the role of government in insuring against terrorism - and then against crime more generally. Part II provides some background on the response of the private insurance market and the federal government to the losses resulting from September 11th. Part III looks at the positive question of how government and private actors should be expected to respond to the losses of 9/11 and to the prospect of future such losses. It explores the interactions among government relief and charitable responses to 9/11 as well as the existence or absence of private insurance, and draws contrasts between terrorism disasters and natural disasters, as well as between 9/11 and prior terror attacks. Part III also analyzes the circumstances in which episodic relief of the 9/11 variety will lead to (or be replaced by) more permanent, routinized relief, as is available in some other countries. Part IV takes up the normative question of the optimal mix of government and private relief (including insurance) for terrorism-related losses. It provides a skeptical view of government intervention in property insurance markets, quite generally, and of the particular federal terrorism reinsurance regime that Congress recently adopted. Part V then broadens the inquiry by asking whether the case for government-sponsored insurance against crime, which is to say a much broader set of crimes than terrorism alone, is at least as sound as that for terrorism-related risks. Part VI concludes."
The Internet's anonymity problem by Saul Levmore( file )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"There is the well known problem, or reality, of juvenile and destructive communication on the Internet, normally engaged in behind the protective cover of anonymity. Is this somehow a different problem on the Internet than it is elsewhere and, if so, are there solutions that are effective and justifiable? This CBI affords an opportunity to think about the subject, if it is that, of "Internet Law. It introduces the idea of a hypothetical bargain among citizens or communicants, as a means of thinking about likely, or perhaps desirable, regulation and practice. It then grapples with the question of whether the interest in, or legal rule protecting, free speech trumps this bargain, or democratic solution ... This lecture was recorded November 11, 2008 as part of the Chicagos Best Ideas series."--Law School faculty podcast webpage
