Abstract

The German Copyright Law grants an absolute right to authors, i.e., any use of protected works requires the author's prior consent. This concept is known as opt-in. In this doctoral thesis the author examines five models which turn this concept upside down as they provide for the permission for certain beneficiaries to use protected works without the author's prior consent until the author objects to such use. This concept is known as opt-out. Also, the examined models contain elements of collectivization and, in particular, involve collecting societies. The author examines and compares these models and answers the question whether the underlying opt-out concept together with collectivization may be generalized so that it could replace opt-in.

Abstract

Können traditionelle kulturelle Ausdrucksweisen, wie Tänze, Rituale, Geschichten oder Legenden, durch eigens geschaffene immaterielle Eigentumsrechte, den sogenannten sui generis Rechten, geschützt werden? Um die vielschichtigen Auswirkungen der sui generis Rechte sowie die Einflüsse auf deren Entstehung ganzheitlich zu beleuchten, vereint der Sammelband Sichtweisen aus den Disziplinen des Völkerrechts, des Zivilrechts, der Ethnologie und der Ökonomie. Den Schwerpunkt bilden hierbei sowohl die Wechselwirkungen der sui generis Rechte mit dem Öffentlichen und dem gängigen Immaterialgüterrecht als auch ihre volkswirtschaftlichen Effekte. Darüber hinaus wird der internationale Entstehungsprozess der sui generis Rechte in der Weltorganisation für Geistiges Eigentum zusammen mit den Einflüssen eines solchen internationalen Diskurses auf die vor Ort gelebte Kultur beleuchtet.

Abstract

The emergence of the Internet and the digital world has changed the way people access, produce and share information and knowledge. Yet people in Africa face challenges in accessing scholarly publications, journals and learning materials in general. At the heart of these challenges, and solutions to them, is copyright, the branch of intellectual property rights that covers written and related works. This book offers an understanding of the legal and practical issues posed by copyright for access to learning materials in Africa, and identifies the relevant lessons, best policies and best practices that would broaden and deepen this access. This book is based on the work of the African Copyright and Access to Knowledge (ACA2K) research network, launched in late 2007 as a network of researchers committed to probing the relationship between copyright and learning materials access in eight African countries: Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, Mozambique, Senegal, South Africa and Uganda.

Abstract

This book looks at how modern philosophers pass on myths about prehistory.Why do political philosophers talk so much about the Stone Age? The state of nature, the origin of property, the origin of government, and the primordial nature of inequality and war are popular topics in political philosophy, but are they being used as more than just illustrative examples? Does the best available evidence from archaeology and anthropology support or conflict with the stories being passed on by political philosophers?This book presents a philosophical look at the origin of civilization, examining political theories to show how claims about prehistory are used and presents evidence that much of what we think we know about human origins comes not from scientific investigation but from the imagination of philosophers.

Abstract

This open access book utilizes new data to thoroughly analyze the main factors currently shaping the African housing market. Some of these factors include the supply and demand for housing finance, land tenure security issues, construction cost conundrum, infrastructure provision, and low-cost housing alternatives. Through detailed analysis, the authors investigate the political economy surrounding the continent’s housing market and the constraints that behind-the-scenes policy makers need to address in their attempts to provide affordable housing for the majority in need. With Africa’s urban population growing rapidly, this study highlights how broad demographic shifts and rapid urbanization are placing enormous pressure on the limited infrastructure in many cities and stretching the economic and social fabric of municipalities to their breaking point. But beyond providing a snapshot of the present conditions of the African housing market, the book offers recommendations and actionable measures for policy makers and other stakeholders on how best to provide affordable housing and alleviate Africa’s housing deficit. This work will be of particular interest to practitioners, non-governmental organizations, private sector actors, students and researchers of economic policy, international development, and urban development.

Abstract

Die Arbeit untersucht die Herausforderungen für das Urheberrecht infolge informationstechnologischer Entwicklungen. Auf der Grundlage der Property-Rights-Theorie werden die ökonomische Rechtfertigung für das Urheberrecht und die Anforderungen für dessen Ausgestaltung analysiert. Die Richtlinie 2001/29/EG soll das Urheberrecht an die Informationsgesellschaft anpassen. In einem rechtsökonomischen Ansatz werden Zielsetzung und Wirkungen der Richtlinie untersucht. Im Mittelpunkt der weiteren Analyse stehen anschließend Interdependenzen zwischen Urheberrecht und Wettbewerb. Behandelt werden dabei unter anderem die für viele Informationsgüter typischen Netzwerkeffekte und Standards sowie wettbewerbsrelevante Fragen hinsichtlich Zugang und Nutzung von urheberrechtlich geschützten Gütern.

Abstract

In 2011, Professor Adrian J Bradbrook retired from a distinguished scholarly career spanning over forty years. During this time, he made a significant contribution to teaching and scholarship not only in property law — specifically to leasehold tenancies law and easements and restrictive covenants — but also to energy law, especially the emerging and growing field of solar energy. This book brings together those people who worked closely with Bradbrook, each an expert in their own right, to honour a career by critically engaging with the contributions Bradbrook made to property and energy law. Each author has chosen a topic that both fits with their own cutting-edge research and explores the related contributions made by Bradbrook. Most unusually, this collection ranges widely across property law, energy law and human rights.
