Abstract

Very often the process of globalization is referred the word economy evolution. Often we measure and study globalization in the economic relevance. The economy is possibly the most recognized dimension of globalization. That is why we see many new phenomena and processes on economic macro levels and economic sectoral horizons as well as on specific ""geography of globalization"". The book The Economic Geography of Globalization consists of 13 chapters divided into two sections: Globalization and Macro Process and Globalization and Sectoral Process. The Authors of respective chapters represent the great diversity of disciplines and methodological approaches as well as a variety of academic culture. This book is a valuable contribution and it will certainly be appreciated by a global community of scholars.

Abstract

This is the first full-length study of digital identity in a transactional context, from a legal perspective. Clare Sullivan's analysis reveals the emergence of a distinct, new legal concept of identity. This concept is particularly clear under a national identity scheme such as the United Kingdom and Indian schemes. However, its emergence is evident even in jurisdictions, like Australia, which do not have a formal national identity scheme. Much of the analysis can also be extrapolated to proprietary schemes such as those run by banks and other businesses.

An individual’s digital identity which is used for transactional purposes has crucial functions which give it legal personality. The author argues that an individual’s digital identity also has the characteristics of property which can, and should, be legally protected. Identity theft is defined using the emergent concept and the study shows that digital identity is property which capable of actually being stolen and criminally damaged.

The study examines the emergence of attendant legal rights and duties including a new right to digital identity and its legal protection. Dr Sullivan argues that an individual has the right to an accurate, functional digital identity and shows that this right exists in addition to the right to privacy.

Dr Sullivan maintains that, considering the essentially public nature of identity, the right to identity provides better, and more appropriate, protection than is afforded by the right to privacy. She asserts that the importance of the right to identity in this context has been obscured by the focus on privacy in international legal scholarship and jurisprudence.

The functions and legal nature of digital identity are analysed using real examples which highlight the implications for individuals, businesses and government. The findings have the potential to fundamentally change the way digital identity is legally and commercially regarded.

Abstract

Das Recht der Unternehmensorganisation hat sich als eine der zentralen Anknüpfungspunkte im modernen Wirtschaftsrecht erwiesen. Nach zaghaften Anfängen in den achtziger Jahren werden heute Unternehmen mit zahlreichen Organisationspflichten aus den verschiedensten Rechtsbereichen konfrontiert. Prominentes Beispiel ist der Finanzbereich, der bis weit ins Detail reichende Vorgaben zur Einrichtung von Risikomanagementsystemen umzusetzen hat. Aber auch viele andere Bereiche des öffentlichen Rechts kennen derartige Organisationspflichten. Im Zivilrecht und auch im Strafrecht ist die Figur der Organisationspflicht ebenfalls seit langem bekannt, aber kaum in seine übergreifenden Zusammenhänge gestellt worden. Das Werk beleuchtet die verschiedenen Rechtsgrundlagen für die Organisationspflichten, ihre verfasssungsrechtlichen Grundlagen, die betriebswirtschaftlichen Konkretisierungsversuche einschließlich der Qualitätsmanagement- und Standardisierungsbewegungen auf der Ebene der ISO, die zivil- und strafrechtlichen Auswirkungen bis hin zur Haftung im Konzern und der persönlichen Verantwortlichkeit der Organvertreter. Die Arbeit stellt die diversen Pflichten und ihre Ausprägungen in einem rechtsgebietsübergreifenden und auch interdisziplinären Ansatz vor, wobei für eine stärkere Zurückhaltung und eine Hinwendung zu Zielvorgaben plädiert wird.

Abstract

The book describes the main directions for the development of the digital society. The author angles its book to those who are interested to know what would replace search engines, and how social networks would evolve; what profit can be made of different forms of informational collaboration (crowdsourcing, collaborative filtering). And, the main thing, how it will influence the structure of the society and human pursuit for happiness. The author does not confine himself to a theory, he sets and solves practical questions: How talent, success and “stardom” are interconnected, how to make money in social networks, what is the business model for the development of entertainment and media, how to measure cultural values, and what is the subjective time of the individual and how to make it qualitative? There have been no answers to these questions before. Internet and social networks have provided tools and data that Alexander Dolgin was the first to use in economics.
