"The U.S. Proposal for an Intellectual Property Chapter in the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement"

Posted in Copyright, Digital Copyright Wars, Legislation and Government Regulation on December 12th, 2012 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Sean M. Flynn et al. have self-archived "The U.S. Proposal for an Intellectual Property Chapter in the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement" in SSRN.

Here's an excerpt:

Our ultimate conclusion is that the U.S. proposal, if adopted, would upset the current international framework balancing the interests of rights holders and the public. It would heighten standards of protection for rights holders well beyond that which the best available evidence or inclusive democratic processes support. It contains insufficient balancing provisions for users, consumers, and the public interest.

Supporting the Changing Research Practices of Historians

Posted in Digital Humanities, Electronic Resources, Reports and White Papers, Scholarly Communication on December 11th, 2012 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Ithaka S+R has released Supporting the Changing Research Practices of Historians .

Here's an excerpt:

In History, the Ithaka S+R project team found a discipline in transition. An expansion in the nature of the field over the past 50 years has introduced new sources, both in terms of subject coverage and international scope. However, only a comparatively small share of the primary sources required by historians has been made available digitally, tempering the opportunity for new methods to take hold.

Even if the impact of computational analysis and other types of new research methods remains limited to a subset of historians, new research practices and communications mechanisms are being adopted widely, bringing with them both opportunities and challenges.

The Right to Be Forgotten—Between Expectations and Practice

Posted in Privacy, Reports and White Papers on December 10th, 2012 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

The European Network and Information Security Agency has released The Right to Be Forgotten—Between Expectations and Practice.

Here's an excerpt:

The right to be forgotten is included in the proposed regulation on data protection published by the European Commission in January 20121. The regulation is still to be adopted by the European Parliament for entering into force. The different legal aspects of the right to be forgotten (i.e. right to erasure or right to oblivion) have been debated in different contexts and are beyond the scope of this paper. With this paper we aim to cover other facets of the right to be forgotten. We focus on the technical means to enforce or support the right in information systems; as can be seen from this paper, there are technical limitations and there is a further need for clear definitions and legal clarifications.
