Information Law Series Volume 39
The European Harmonisation of Intermediary Accessory Liability in Copyright provides a clarification on the substantive rules of European intermediary accessory liability in copyright and formulates harmonised European norms to govern this complicated topic. In step with the rapid progress to the centre of modern social, political, and economic life, the internet has proven a convenient vehicle for the commission of unprecedented levels of copyright infringement. Given the formidable practical obstacles to the successful pursuit of actual perpetrators, it has become common for intermediaries - providers of internet-related infrastructure and services - to face liability as accessories. Despite advances in policy at the European level, the law in this area remains far from consistently applicable. This is the first book to take a law-based approach towards exploring a possible introduction of a substantive European intermediary liability.
What's in this book:
With a detailed comparative analysis of relevant regimes in three major Member State jurisdictions - England, France, and Germany - the author elucidates the relationship between these rules and the demands of EU law on fundamental rights and the principles of European tort law. On this basis, she clearly presents the interrelations between such areas as the following:
The strong points of each national system are highlighted, as are the commonalities between them, and the author uses these to build a proposed harmonised European framework for intermediary liability for copyright infringement. The author concludes with suggestions for the future possible integration of the proposed framework into EU law.
How this will help you:
This book discusses the issue of the liability of internet intermediaries for third-party copyright infringement that has entered into the political agenda across the globe, giving rise to one of the most complex, contentious, and fascinating debates in modern copyright law. This book offers an opportunity for a re-conceptualisation and rationalisation of the applicable law, in a way which better accounts for the cross-border nature of the internet. The proposed reintegration of intermediary accessory copyright liability into underlying national tort norms, common principles of European tort law, and the European law of fundamental rights will prove to be of inestimable value to many interested parties - lawyers, internet intermediaries, NGOs, policymakers, universities, libraries, researchers, lobbyists - in matters regarding the information society.
This new study reconciles cognitive metaphor theory with Critical Discourse Analysis to offer a fresh approach to the study of metaphor. In applying this framework to a substantial corpus of texts from business magazines, the author shows how metaphors of war, sports and evolutionary struggle are used to construct business as a masculinized social domain. In view of the subtle but pervasive socio-cognitive impact of these metaphors, the study raises the question of possible alternatives and the scope for change in business media discourse.
As social media use explodes in popularity, teachers can now share resources and interact with a broad international audience of colleagues, scholars, students, and the general public. Teachers use sites such as Twitter to develop and hone their professional identities and manage others' impressions of them and their work. This text draws on extensive research to provide guidance about teachers' use of social media for professional development and identity formation. A conceptual framework drawing on Goffman's Theory of the Presentation of Self in Everyday Life and research into how users interact online informed the case studies of preservice teachers' experiences with social media. A secondary function of the book is to guide teachers through the process of conducting action research projects in their own classrooms. Use of social media involves more than just sharing links or scattered thoughts; savvy users consider a wide variety of methods and forms of interaction. This text shares research-based best practices for these forms of information sharing, including the effects of these practices on different audiences. Twitter and other forms of social media offer an easily accessible, free mode of communication; however, while asking a question and obtaining answers from people all over the globe is exciting, and while this process can be empowering for both the questioner and the responder, it can also be problematic as viewed from a quality control perspective. Is the information accurate? Does it reflect research-based best practices? What are some of the ways that teachers can and should form personae and identities on social media? What are the risks? This text chips away at these crucial questions.
