Separate sections cover topics such as territoriality, national treatment and choice of law, as well as the treaty and trade arrangements that underlie substantive copyright norms.

This book deals with a highly topical area: the protection of broadcasters' rights. It is an area in which the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) has been working to draft a new treaty and has now reached the final stage for conclusion of the treaty. The author analyses the formation and subsequent development of the legislation for protecting broadcasters' rights, and discusses the current legal issues arising out of current proposals at the international and domestic levels to upgrade that protection. The focus of the work is the international protection of broadcasters' rights as well as in the two jurisdictions which are representative of the two-different approaches to protection: Australia and Japan. This volume provides a detailed account of the relevant international treaties and conventions as well as domestic legislation, and provides insightful arguments that present the optimal approach of the future protection of broadcasters' rights. "'This book is an invaluable contribution to our understanding of the issues relating to the protection of broadcasters' rights. The book provides a comprehensive analysis of the protection of broadcasters' rights based on the differing approaches adopted by the common law and civil law systems'." From the foreword by The Honourable Sir Anthony Mason AC KBE CBE.

Does a right to property exist under international law? The traditional answer to this question is no: a right to property can only arise under the domestic law of a particular nation. But the view that property rights are exclusively governed by national law is obsolete. Identifiable areas of property law have emerged at the international level, and the foundation is now arguably being laid for a comprehensive international regime. This book provides a detailed investigation into this developing international property law. It demonstrates how the evolution of international property law has been influenced by major economic, political, and technological changes: the embrace of private property by former socialist states after the end of the Cold War; the globalization of trade; the birth of new technologies capable of exploiting the global commons; the rise of digital property; and the increasing recognition of the human right to property. The first part of the book analyzes how international law impacts rights in specific types of property. In some situations, international law creates property rights, such as rights in aboriginal lands, deep seabed minerals, and satellite orbits. In other areas, it harmonizes property rights that arise at the national level, such as rights in intellectual property, rights in foreign investments, and security interests in personal property. Finally, it restricts property rights that may be recognized at the national level, such as rights in celestial bodies, contraband, and slaves. The second part of the book explores the thesis that a global right to property should be recognized as a general matter, not merely as a moral precept but rather as an entitlement that all nations must honour. It establishes the components of such a right, arguing that the right to property at the international level should be seen in the context of five key components of ownership: acquisition, use, destruction, exclusion, and transfer. This highly innovative book makes an important contribution to how we conceptualize the protection of property and to the understanding that much of this protection now takes place at the international level.

Criminal law can no longer be neatly categorised as the product and responsibility of domestic law. That this is true is emphasised by the ever-increasing amount of legislation stemming from the European Union (EU) which impacts, both directly and indirectly, on the criminal law. The involvement of the EU institutions in the substantive criminal laws of its Member States is of considerable legal and political significance. This book deals with the emerging EU framework for creating, harmonising and ensuring the application of EU criminal law. This book aims to highlight some of the consequences of EU involvement in the criminal law by examining the provisions which have been adopted in the field of information and communications technology. It provides an overview of the criminal law competence of the EU and evaluates the impact of these developments on the criminal laws of the Member States. It then goes on to consider the EU legislation which requires Member States to regulate matters such as data protection, e-security, intellectual property and various types of illegal content through the criminal law is analysed. In the course of this evaluation, particular consideration is given to issues such as the basis on which the EU institutions establish the need for criminal sanctions, the liability of service providers and the extent to which the Member States have adhered to, or departed from, the legislation in the course of implementation.

Sources of State Practice in International Law is the true heir to Myers' 1922 classic Manual of Collections of Treaties. It is the only work that carries the thoroughness and scholarship of Myers into the United Nations era and on to today's new world order. The work is organized by country, with a lengthy additional chapter covering multi-jurisdictional sources. Each chapter describes relevant web sites as well as traditional bibliographic materials. The first release includes fully up-to-date documentation of state practice in international law in the following fourteen countries; Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Norway, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, U.K., United States... as well as an annotated list of multi-jurisdictional collections arranged by subject. The authors provide references not only to treaty collections but also to sources of diplomatic documentation and other materials that shed light on customary state practice in international law. References to Yearbooks and Digests are also included. Every listing offers essential details of publication and/or online accessibility, as well as a brief note elucidating important considerations in the item's practical application. These descriptions, even for items catalogued in Myers or the UN List, are in most cases the most detailed bibliographic descriptions available in any legal source. Each chapter, compiled by an expert in the particular country's practice in international law, opens with a detailed introduction that locates the regime in question in the past and present context of international relations and international law, discusses issues of treaty succession, and describes the process of treaty ratification and implementation.
