Abstract

"Comparative law and the history of law are traditionally devoted to expanding the context of legal rules and legal institutions. Comparison involves history, as the well-known motto proclaims, but history also involves comparison. Both disciplines are in fact interested in deepening the space-time coordinates of law as a social phenomenon, which means that they take up a critical approach to their object of study.
In recent years, this trait is increasingly coming into conflict with the tendency to present law as a mere technocratic instrument for organizing societies. As a result of the »end of history« discourse, the Western economic and political order has become a definitive point of reference worldwide, with law scholars charged with identifying best practices to enhance their efficiency.
A group of comparative lawyers and legal historians critically discuss this assumption from a theoretical point of view as well as from the perspective of their respective fields of research. The result is a multifaceted range of ideas on the significance and possible future of two disciplines that share, in addition to their traditional approach, a crisis of identity."

Abstract

Erstmalig thematisiert das Buch das in China weit verbreitete Phänomen Ren-rou-sou-suo (Menschenfleischsuche) auch in Deutschland. Als Hexenjagd im Internet ist dieses weltweite Phänomen auch in Deutschland in den nächsten Jahren zu erwarten. Aufgrund potenzieller Persönlichkeitsrechtsverletzungen und Datenschutzprobleme ist es hoch regulierungsbedürftig. Der Autor analysiert die Hintergründe der Suche in beiden Ländern unter technischen, kulturellen, sozialen, politischen und psychologischen Aspekten. Er untersucht und beantwortet rechtsvergleichend und detailliert alle diesbezüglichen Rechtsfragen einschließlich Providerhaftung, Anonymität und Pseudonymität, Auskunftsanspruch auf Anmeldedaten von Nutzern, Notice and take down sowie Störerhaftung.

Abstract

Raymond Saleilles (Gigny-par-Beaune, Borgoña, 1855-París 1912) está considerado como uno de los máximos representantes de la Escuela antiformalista francesa, como uno de los profesores que reaccionaron a finales del siglo XIX contra el Absolutismo jurídico. Al autor se le presenta también como católico implicado en los problemas sociales de la época2, pero sin duda destaca en la literatura científica posterior a 1912 el papel de Saleilles como uno de los creadores del derecho comparado moderno. Pese a que no fue el único comparatista de su época ni tampoco el más prolífico ni el que estableciese un método elaborado de esta disciplina, los comparatistas posteriores a Saleilles le han considerado siempre como precursor de la comparatística en Francia, llegando a calificársele en ocasiones como “padre” del derecho comparado. Si duda esto se debe, al menos en parte, al importante papel de Raymond Saleilles en la organización del primer congreso internacional de derecho comparado, celebrado en París entre el 29 de julio y el 1 de agosto de 1900. Ciertamentehay un antes y un después de 1900 para la mayoría de comparatistas. El libro, en primer lugar, presenta una biografía del jurista que nos acerca a su contexto y a sus motivaciones científicas, políticas y religiosas. A continuación analiza el contexto de la aparición de este modernismo jurídico para desgranar después los diferentes elementos del método y objeto del derecho comparado saleilliano, ambos elaborados de manera vaga e imprecisa por el propio Saleilles. La última parte se dedico al análisis de la aplicación de esta doctrina a los diferentes temas que abordó el jurista francés.

Abstract

Giulia Parola’s Environmental Democracy at the Global Level: Rights and Duties for a New Citizenship can be seen as a manifesto that is both traditional and revolutionary at the same time. It calls for the construction of a new civilisation centred on the environment, while drawing on the traditional notions of democratic government. It adopts an approach that is focused on the power of individuals rather than governments, as ways to protect and improve the environment. It proposes that environmental rights and ecological duties are self-evident and inalienable, and should be treated as the cornerstones of a new democracy. Parola’s book is a thought provoking and intriguing work that will be of interest to scholars of environmental studies as well as to legal practitioners and non-specialists.Giulia Parola has studied Environmental Law at the University of Torino, at the University of René Descartes in Paris, (where she obtained PhD in Public Law) and at the University of Iceland ( LLM in Natural Resources Law and International Environmental Law).In 2011, she was appointed by the University of Laval (Canada, Quebec) as a researcher and a lecturer in Environmental Law.

Abstract

Remixers recombine copyright-protected audiovisual material and distribute it via hosting platforms. To what extent does copyright law allow remixing and what is the impact of platforms' policies and filtering mechanisms for user uploads? Henrike Maier employs a comparative legal approach and focuses on the role of creative users' fundamental rights to investigate these questions.

Abstract

Julian Staben examines chilling effects, framed as deterrence-based lines of argument, in the jurisprudence of the Bundesverfassungsgericht (German Federal Constitutional Court) and compares them with the jurisprudence of the US Supreme Court. Chilling effects follow distinct patterns when it comes to online behaviour and emerging digital practices and therefore call for their constitutional reassessment. Julian Staben's work enables a more methodologically reflective use of these arguments in the judicial discourse.
