The present thesis discusses the implications of the enforcement of standard-essential patents (SEPs) for competition law. Formal standard setting has the potential to result in near-optimal investment in research and development and at the same time in rapid implementation of innovative standards.

Abstract

This unique and timely book follows the experiences of four Arabic teenagers, their families and their community, focusing on the role of literacy in their daily lives and the differences between home and school. The author looks at the conflict between expectations and practices at school and in the home, arguing that problems are inevitable where class and cultural differences exist. Emerging themes include: how literacy practices in the community are undergoing rapid change due to global developments in technology how the patterns of written and spoken language in Eng and Arabic in the home are linked with social practices in logical and coherent ways how many of the family practices that differ from school culture and language become marginalised. Built around these insightful case studies yet grounded in theory, this book is of immediate relevance to teachers working in multicultural contexts and students and lecturers in language/literacy or on TESOL courses.

Abstract

What are the macroeconomic prospects for South Africa until the new millennium? Two methods of macroeconomic modelling, associated with the World Bank and IMF, are used here to generate three scenarios, based on moderately optimistic projections. The methodology used can be applied to other developing countries.

Abstract

Education in Scotland is markedly different from what happens in the rest of the UK - with a different National Curriculum, school boards to oversee school management and a General Teaching Council which has been in existence since 1965. Whilst there are many examples of successful and innovative practice in Scotland, the system is quite often not recognised as different by writers who talk about the UK education system as if it were one smooth whole. This book describes recent developments in both legislation and practice in Scotland, drawing comparisons with the Eng system. Chapters cover: * administration and management * the professional competence of teachers * early years education provision * the 'National Curriculum' in Scotland * Secondary Education * Special Educational Needs

Abstract

The Internet and the proceeding digitalisation of content - such as music, videos and written texts - have led to profound and complex challenges in the field of Copyright Law, especially with regard to questions of enforcement as well as adequate compensation of right holders. In recent years, several alternative compensation schemes have been proposed, seeking to solve these issues. In Germany, the discussion still focuses on the so-called "cultural flatrate", that is, in a nutshell, a limitation to copyrights which would legalize sharing of content online. Every holder of a broadband connection to the Internet would have to pay a monthly fee which would be used to remunerate the right holders. This advisory opinion was compiled on behalf of the parliamentary group of the German political party "Bündnis 90/DIE GRÜNEN". The author comprehensively analyses the feasibility of the described alternative compensation scheme under German and European law, discussing both legal and economic obstacles and possible impacts based on a variety of different economic prerequisites.

Abstract

Verantwoording is een maatschappelijk vraagstuk van de eerste orde, maar ook een bron van groeiende zorg en irritatie voor veel organisaties. In 2004 startten het ministerie van Financiën en het ministerie van Justitie een onderzoek naar de mogelijke toepassing van eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) als uniforme gegevensstandaard voor verantwoording. In 2006 lag er een architectuur voor Standard Business Reporting. In 2007 werden de eerste berichten in XBRL via een generieke voorziening succesvol bij de Belastingdienst en de Kamer van Koophandel afgeleverd. Eind 2009 werd er serieus ingezet op de grootschalige transitie van informatieketens. Sinds 2013 biedt Logius met Standard Business Reporting een werkende en efficiënte standaardoplossing voor massale verantwoording.De keten uitgedaagd - Besturen en verantwoorden in een wereld vol ICT beschrijft de weg die Standard Business Reporting heeft afgelegd van opgave tot oplossing. Specialisten uit de praktijk én wetenschappers geven een gefundeerd en gedetailleerd inzicht in de uitdagingen die komen kijken bij de transitie van informatieketens. In haar veelzijdigheid is het boek exemplarisch voor de benodigde paradigmaverschuivingen binnen het veranderdomein. Het boek biedt bovendien alle praktische informatie die partijen nodig hebben om de SBR-oplossingen toe te passen in het eigen domein.Het is inmiddels algemeen bekend dat het bij grootschalige ICT-programma’s om veel meer draait dan techniek alleen. Met Standard Business Reporting als toonbeeld van een domein waarin informatieketens grondig werden aangepakt, is De keten uitgedaagd een niet te missen handboek voor bestuurders en programmamanagers die willen besturen en verantwoorden in een wereld vol ICT.

Abstract

Standard-setting is an essential tool for promoting innovation, competition and resulting in benefits to consumers and businesses. However, due to the fact, that standards are usually protected by standard-essential patents (SEPs), standard-setting may obstruct the access to the standardized technology and create entry barriers into the market for those, who do not own SEPs. The afore-described events cause tension between the owners and the users of SEPs. In order to keep the balance between the afore-specified parties, standard-setting organizations (SSPs) come into play by requiring SEPs owners to license these patents on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory (FRAND) terms. Nevertheless, the latter attempt quite often results in costly and time-consuming litigation, because the parties are not able to agree what kind of terms are FRAND. Such situation inevitably impedes the implementation of the standardized technology into industries and calls for a re-consideration of the role of SSOs during the process of standardization and after the standard is set. In this work, the possible role of SSOs while improving the access for the users to the standardized technology will be discussed.
