Abstract

This book explores the manner in which a variety of public benefits such as environmental protection and consumer safety have been accommodated through the authorisation process within competition law and policy in Australia. While the regulator’s use of its discretion can be explained as a triumph of practice over theory, this book explores the potential for competition principles to be imbued by the wider discourses of democratic participation and human rights. In doing so it makes a significant contribution to the Australian competition policy as well as reconceptualising the way in which discretion is used by regulators. … a very important and creative contribution to the literatures on both business regulation in general and Australian competition and consumer protection law in particular. It pays special attention to an everyday regulatory function that is often ignored in scholarship. And it is very important in challenging—on both empirical and normative policy oriented grounds—a narrowly economic approach to competition law, and proposing an alternative understanding and practice for the public benefit test in ACCC authorisations.&#xD;&#xD;Professor Christine Parker&#xD;&#xD;The data Vij Nagarajan has analysed is quite unique in its focus. It is a kind of data and analysis that has not been completed before in the international literature. It is well written, theoretically sophisticated and incisive in its policy analysis.&#xD;&#xD;John Braithwaite

Abstract

With technology standards becoming increasingly common, particularly in the information and communications technology (ICT) sector, the complexities and contradictions at the interface of intellectual property law and competition law have emerged strongly. This book talks about how the regulatory agencies and courts in the United States, European Union and India are dealing with the rising allegations of anti-competitive behaviour by standard essential patent (SEP) holders. It also discusses the role of standards setting organizations / standards developing organizations (SSO/SDO) and the various players involved in implementing the standards that influence practices and internal dynamics in the ICT sector. This book includes discussions on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory (FRAND) licensing terms and the complexities that arise when both licensors and licensees of SEPs differ on what they mean by “fair”, “reasonable” and “non-discriminatory” terms. It also addresses topics such as the appropriate royalty base, calculation of FRAND rates and concerns related to FRAND commitments and the role of Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in collaborative standard setting process. This book provides a wide range of valuable information and is a useful tool for graduate students, academics and researchers.

Abstract

Maritime trade is the backbone of the world’s economy. Around ninety percent of all goods are transported by ship, and since World War II, shipbuilding has undergone major changes in response to new commercial pressures and opportunities. Early British dominance, for example, was later undermined in the 1950s by competition from the Japanese, who have since been overtaken by South Korea and, most recently, China. The case studies in this volume trace these and other important developments in the shipbuilding and ship repair industries, as well as workers’ responses to these historic transformations.

Abstract

The strategic management of training and competition in tennis is a highly complex process that convenes transdisciplinary knowledge, including, in particular, the technique and biomechanics, the tactic, the psychology, but also the physiology, nutrition, auxology or immunology. Without the pretension of analyzing all of the determinants of the process, this book aims to introduce the tennis from a complex approach regarding the conceptualization and operationalization of the process, and also in relation to the understanding of the phenomenon and the prediction of profiles that give more guarantees of positive results. Over the eleven chapters, various national and foreign researchers develop themes including strategy, philosophy and model of game, pedagogy and didactics, learning and motor control, psychology, tactics, and health. It is a book that is directed to students, researchers, coaches and managers, as well as other people connected to tennis.

Abstract

Waves of military technological changes have swept through the Eurasian land mass since the dawn of civilization. Military technological changes decisively shaped geopolitics and the fortunes of states, empires and civilizations. In his book Jimmy Teng claims that to understand the impacts of these military technological changes is in fact to understand the causes behind the following major historical puzzles or important facts: the leading position of the Near East during the dawn of civilization; the splendid achievements of Greece, India and China during the axial era; the classical golden age of India under the Gupta Empire; the Abbasid Golden Age of the Islamic world and the Sung Puzzle of China during the medieval era; and the rise of the West during the early modern and modern era.

Abstract

À l’évidence, les sportifs sont aujourd’hui de plus en plus nombreux à pratiquer en dehors des clubs. Cette forme d’organisation caractéristique qu’est le club, inventée à la fin du xixe siècle, perfectionnée et diffusée tout au long du xxe siècle, est-elle vouée à disparaître progressivement ? Critiqué par tous ceux et celles qui n’ont pas pu - ou pas su - trouver leur place en son sein, le club sportif est-il encore une solution d’avenir pour le développement de l’activité sportive ? Traduit-il les aspirations d’une majorité de pratiquants sportifs ? Reste-t-il un lieu privilégié pour accéder au plus haut niveau de compétition ? Les responsables de l’Université Sportive d’Eté entendaient relever le défi. Un autre club sportif pour le xxie siècle ? Telle est l’interrogation générale à laquelle les participants de FUSE 1997, qui s’est tenue à Nîmes du 29 août au 2 septembre 1997, avec le soutien du Sport Université Nîmois, se sont efforcés d'apporter des éléments de réponse sans pour autant ni éluder, ni mésestimer les contradictions qui caractérisent actuellement le sport. Sans doute n’est-elle pas aisée la tâche qui consiste pour les acteurs des clubs à dégager pour les années à venir une ligne de conduite à la fois cohérente et efficace. Faire cohabiter pratique traditionnelle et formes d’activités nouvelles... Favoriser l’accueil et la cohabitation de pratiquants aux attentes variées... Concilier un individualisme croissant et un besoin retrouvé de sociabilité, la gratuité de l’effort et le mercenariat, la fidélité à des valeurs anciennes et l’adaptation à de nouvelles normes de pratique... Ou bien le club sportif des prochaines décennies saura recomposer une synthèse cohérente entre les valeurs, des missions et la sollicitation des publics ou il ne sera pas !

Abstract

L'actualité du sport, à ses différents niveaux d'engagement et de pratique, suscite bien des interrogations. Les dirigeants des clubs, des comités et des ligues, des fédérations également sont souvent confrontés à des situations qui les font douter de l'efficacité de leur action. Selon certains, la répartition inégale du pouvoir et la faible reconnaissance qui leur est octroyée, au sein même du Mouvement sportif organisé, sont un manquement aux principes démocratiques. La diversité grandissante des activités physiques et sportives et la complexité des dispositifs mis en place pour le sport de compétition échappent en principe à toute prétention hégémonique. Jadis omniprésent dans la modernisation du sport en France, l'État était devenu un État animateur et partenaire du mouvement sportif et des collectivités territoriales avant de donner l'impression, récemment, de recentrer encore ses prérogatives, les ramenant à quelques missions prioritaires. L'horizon semble s'être peu à peu rétréci, au fur et à mesure que le sport le cédait aux lois du marché, du spectacle, avec la complicité des grands médias, des sponsors et de la consommation. Au terme de cette USE, il est apparu nécessaire d'en appeler à une refondation du modèle sportif français.

Abstract

Le débat sur la justice et l'injustice est central et urgent dans les sociétés démocratiques, et la justice sociale est l'horizon de la plupart des politiques d'action sur les territoires. Mais le doute sur les grands récits explicatifs du monde a conduit souvent à relativiser tout discours sur la justice. Ce processus est renforcé par l'émergence de mouvements sociaux divers (féministes, écologistes, anti-racistes...) et par le développement du multiculturalisme : en un même lieu et au même ...
