Abstract

The „as efficient competitor“-standard has gained great practical significance when assessing exclusionary conduct – not least because of the „more economic approach“. The thesis investigates the standard’s historical and economic backgrounds, analyses its history of application and undertakes a critical assessment based on the aforementioned factors. The thesis follows a comparative law approach and is highly interdisciplinary. Thereby it majorly contributes to the controversial topic of how industrial organisation’s findings can be made viable for the application of law in light of versatile shortcomings. It adds to a clarification of the demanding prohibition rules on exclusionary conduct by providing important insights into the application of the „as efficient competitor“ test. By doing so, it aims at attracting the interest of academic scholars as well as professionals.

Abstract

Modern medical technologies, especially the pre-implantation and prenatal diagnosis, have given the possibility of preventive dealing with the risks of physical or mental disabilities. On the other side there is the call for support and “inclusion” of people with disabilities. These opposing trends are critically analyzed and discussed in depth from a legally, genetic, as well as from a medical, social and ethical point of view.

Abstract

Endanger law ('Gefährdungsrecht') is a criminal law which is seeking security – and thereafter fighting ‘risks’ and ‘dangers’ – as its main objective and which is acting on the basis of risk patterns developed by this law itself. Individuals who fit these characteristics are being fought against as endangerers, that means, as high risky figures – and not as offenders. In this work it is presented this figure which has been constructed by the criminal policies and system in Germany during recent years, and has been co-constructed by the Constitutional Court in at least two cases: in the case of the acoustic home surveillance and in the case of the subsequent incapacitation order. Here is (critically) explained the internal logic and rationality which is leading this endanger law.

Abstract

The evolution of activism against the expansion of copyright in the digital domain, with case studies of resistance including eBook and iTunes hacks.The movement against restrictive digital copyright protection arose largely in response to the excesses of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) of 1998. In The Digital Rights Movement, Hector Postigo shows that what began as an assertion of consumer rights to digital content has become something broader: a movement concerned not just with consumers and gadgets but with cultural ownership. Increasingly stringent laws and technological measures are more than incoveniences; they lock up access to our “cultural commons.”Postigo describes the legislative history of the DMCA and how policy “blind spots” produced a law at odds with existing and emerging consumer practices. Yet the DMCA established a political and legal rationale brought to bear on digital media, the Internet, and other new technologies. Drawing on social movement theory and science and technology studies, Postigo presents case studies of resistance to increased control over digital media, describing a host of tactics that range from hacking to lobbying.Postigo discusses the movement's new, user-centered conception of “fair use” that seeks to legitimize noncommercial personal and creative uses such as copying legitimately purchased content and remixing music and video tracks. He introduces the concept of technological resistance—when hackers and users design and deploy technologies that allows access to digital content despite technological protection mechanisms—as the flip side to the technological enforcement represented by digital copy protection and a crucial tactic for the movement.

Abstract

This chapter reflects on what materiality-inflected methodologies1 can bring to an anthropology of law, and to legal studies more generally. Its starting point is an increasing attention across the social sciences and humanities for objects, and thinking beyond the human. These have often, but not only, emerged from science and technology studies (STS), to which we pay particular attention. However, approaches to materiality have themselves become diversified, and their implications for law can similarly be read in multiple ways. At the same time, legal anthropology has helped to re-characterise the complexity of law as a field of social activity by paying attention to its meanings, for actors within as well as outside its own institutions; to its modes of action in practice, again within its explicitly designated spaces as well as its everyday; to its unexpected forms, patterns and directions; to its multiplicity and uncertainty. Approaches within a broadly defined ‘legal anthropology’ agenda have provided tools to move away from grand and removed theorisation of the law, or an exclusive attention to its own claims, and towards a subtler understanding of law as a relatively fluid, changing and uncertain set of practices. While doing so, legal anthropology has also reminded us of the significance of empirical research to identify and theorise the complex existences of law, a contribution which echoes some of the implications of materiality-oriented theories.

Abstract

Der EuGH hat mit seiner Rechtsprechung die soziale Dimension der europäischen Integration wesentlich beeinflusst - durch viele Entscheidungen zur Freizügigkeit und zur Dienstleistungsfreiheit, zum koordinierenden Sozialrecht, zum Arbeitsrecht, Arbeitsschutz und zur Gleichstellung. Er hat soziale Rechte entfaltet, sie zum Teil ausgeweitet, ihre Eingebundenheit in wirtschaftliche Freiheiten betont. Damit ist er auf Zustimmung, aber auch auf teilweise sehr deutliche Kritik gestoßen.Der vorliegende Tagungsband soll die Entwicklung des europäischen Arbeits- und Sozialrechts nachzeichnen, kritisch untersuchen und einem möglichst großen Kreis von Interessierten zugänglich machen. Zugleich soll er die weitere Diskussion über die Zukunft des Sozialen Europa im Wechselspiel zwischen Politik und Rechtsprechung anstoßen. Er enthält Beiträge von Ulrich Becker, Brian Bercusson, Niklas Bruun, Thomas von Danwitz, Marko Ilesic, Juliane Kokott, Pauliine Koskelo, Karl-Dieter Möller, Franz Müntefering, Ingrid Schmidt, Ulrike Wendeling-Schröder, Barbara Kresal, Bernd von Maydell, Hans-Jürgen Papier, Sebastião Nóbrega Pizzaro, Vassilios Skouris, Hellmut Wißmann, Matthias von Wulffen.

Abstract

In this chapter, I explore the regulation of alternative and traditional medicine, in order to reflect on how particular temporalities shape, and are shaped by, the interface between law and medicine. This chapter makes two key points: first, it argues that both biomedicine and law have relied on a particular sense of ‘modernity’ as a linear temporal process; in turn, this has been key in developing both crude, and more subtle, social patterns of power, dominance, and exclusion that continue to impact on contemporary societies. Second, it argues that as law increasingly engages in the regulation of other types of medicine, it continues to emulate biomedical models and assumptions as to what ‘modern medicine’ should look like, including its temporal features. This chapter is written as I am starting a large investigation of the multiple ways in which traditional and alternative medicines apprehend and are apprehended by law in several states in Europe and Africa.2 Although the project has several aims, my interest in the field came, in part, from the ambivalent and complex ways in which the idea of ‘modernity’ seemed to be shaping the field and, in turn, how law and medicine as institutions were involved in this ambivalence. It is useful, to ‘set the scene’ of this chapter, to return to this briefly.

Abstract

Die Arbeit befasst sich mit Abweichungen vom Deutschen Corporate Governance Kodex und von § 161 AktG als Pflichtverletzung im Sinne der Untreue und soll insbesondere zur Klärung der Rechtsnatur dieses aktiengesellschaftsrechtlichen Regulierungsinstruments, welches in unserer Rechtsordnung seinesgleichen sucht, beitragen. Aus strafrechtlicher Perspektive ganz in den Mittelpunkt gerückt wird hierbei das Pflichtverletzungsmerkmal des § 266 StGB im Kontext der Organuntreue, welche Rechtsprechung und Wissenschaft zunehmend beschäftigt. Vertieft nachgegangen wird dabei der Frage, inwieweit der Untreuetatbestand zivilrechtsakzessorisch ist. Außerdem wird untersucht, ob jeder Verstoß gegen die aus §§ 93 Abs. 1 S. 1, 116 S. 1 AktG folgende Legalitätspflicht der Organmitglieder von Aktiengesellschaften auch eine Pflichtverletzung im Sinne der Untreue darstellt.

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.
