II. Books

International Harmonization of Economic Regulation

(Oxford University Press, October 2011)

Junji Nakagawa

International harmonization is discussed in a wide range of cases including trade-related regulations, technical standards and food safety standards, intellectual property rights, labour standards, competition law and policy, financial regulations, and regulations concerning transnational economic crime.

……

On the Brink of European Patent Law

(Eleven International Publishing, 2011)

Dick van Engelen

This publication contains conference papers written by leading patent judges, academics, and practicing lawyers from Germany, England, and The Netherlands, as well as by members of the Boards of Appeal of the European Patent Office. The book’s topics – such as scope of protection, partial revocation, inventive step, prosecution history, and contributory infringement – are to a large extent harmonized and unified law.

……

Biotech Innovations and Fundamental Rights

(Springer, 2011)

Roberto Bin; Sara Lorenzon and Nicola Lucchi (Eds)

The revolutionary speed of biotech innovations has had a significant impact on the protection of the rights of the individual. Fundamental rights provide a framework within which the justification of limitations and restrictions to biotechnology innovations and research results have to be assessed.

……

Deficits in EU and US Mandatory Environmental Information Disclosure

(Springer, 2011)

Dirk Bünger

It is the publicity about the Pollutant Release Inventory’s data which creates an incentive for firms to achieve emission reductions, however two facets arise. First, with regard to the collection, it is disputed whether such information, which may comprise confidential commercial and industrial information in the EU as well as trade secrets in the US, can be protected under fundamental and constitutional property rights respectively. Second, in the context of dissemination and utilisation, it is arguable whether the information indeed impacts polluters and produces an outcome that secures a certain level of environmental protection.

……

Information Security Law in the EU and the U.S.

(Springer, 2011)

Lukas Feiler

This book provides a comprehensive assessment of EU and U.S. information security law, covering laws and regulations that require the implementation of security measures, laws that impose or limit liability for security breaches, laws that mandate the disclosure of vulnerabilities or security breaches, and laws that deter malicious actors by providing criminal sanctions. To facilitate this comparative assessment, a risk-based assessment methodology is used and a concluding comparative assessment that summarizes the current state of information security law is given.

……

The European Union after Lisbon

(Springer, 2011)

Hermann-Josef Blanke and Stelio Mangiameli (Eds)

The book contains 24 contributions from European law scholars and practitioners analysing the constitutional basis of the European Union and the normative orientation of the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) as well as the central economic and monetary provisions (TFEU) after the Reform Treaty of Lisbon.

……

Food Systems Failure

(Earthscan, October 2011)

Christopher Rosin, Paul Stock and Hugh Campbell (eds)

This book provides a critical assessment of the contemporary global food system in light of the heightening food crisis, as evidence of its failure to achieve food security for the world’s population. A key aspect of this failure is identified in the neoliberal strategies which emphasise industrial efficiencies, commodity production and free trade-ideologies that underlie agricultural and food policies in what are frequently referred to as “developed countries”. The book examines both the contradictions in the global food system as well as the implications of existing ideologies of production associated with commodity industrial agriculture using evidence from relevant international case studies.
