The book in front of you is the first international academic volume on the legal, philosophical and economic aspects of the rise of 3D printing. In recent years 3D printing has become a hot topic. Some claim that it will revolutionize production and mass consumption, enabling consumers to print anything from clothing, automobile parts and guns to various foods, medication and spare parts for their home appliances. This may significantly reduce our environmental footprint, but also offers potential for innovation and creativity. At the same time 3D printing raises social, ethical, regulatory and legal questions. If individuals can print anything they want, how does this affect existing systems of intellectual property rights? What are the societal consequences of the various types of products one can print with a 3D printer, for example weapons? Should all aspects of 3D printing be regulated, and if so, how and to what ends? How will businesses (have to) change their way of working and their revenue model in light of the shift to printing-on-demand? How will the role of product designers change in a world where everyone has the potential to design their own products? These and other questions are addressed in high quality and in-depth contributions by academics and experts, bringing together a wide variety of academic discussions on 3D printing from different disciplines as well as presenting new views, broadening the discussion beyond the merely technical dimension of 3D printing. Bibi van den Berg is Associate Professor at eLaw, the Center for Law and Digital Technologies at Leiden University, The Netherlands. Simone van der Hof is Full Professor at eLaw in Leiden and Eleni Kosta is Associate Professor at TILT, the Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology and Society at Tilburg University, The Netherlands.

  • Patent system, constitution, and the public
  • The resurgence of the public
  • Pre-grant opposition : ex ante validation of patents
  • Heightened standards of patentability : raising the bar on inventions
  • Compulsory licensing : local working in the global economy
  • The fault lines of harmonization
  • The access regime : creation, working, and pathways.
India's post-TRIPS (Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights) patent law reforms, which incorporates a remarkable array of flexibilities, is seen as a counter-harmonization measure in direct opposition to the dominant model of patent law pioneered by the United States. India's response, which represents an alternative model of confirming to the TRIPS Agreement, has seen stiff resistance in the form of counter-provisions in Free Trade Agreements entered by the United States and other countries. Historically, patent systems based on neoliberalism, like the American model, favour individual pursuits whereas patent systems based on social democracy, like the Indian model, focus on community goals. This distinction manifests in the manner in which the role of the public is defined in the patent system. India's model is characterized by the emphasis on the public elements in three significant ways. First, in redefining pre-grant opposition by allowing public participation in questioning the ex ante validity of patents. Second, in protecting the public domain by heightening the standard of patentability and requiring the patent applicant to demonstrate technical advance and greater effectiveness of the invention. Third, in providing for compulsory licensing when the public interest is affected by a patent that is not worked locally. The influence of the India's model has come from mimicry by other countries in following the Indian example. Countries like Argentina, Philippines, Brazil, China and South Africa have either emulated or strongly favour following India's path. Such state practices might occasion the re-imagination of the TRIPS Agreement as the Access Regime. This book explains why India took that unique route in patent law, details the provisions made the Indian patent law unique, and charters the course for countries awaiting to follow the Indian example.

Accessory liability is an often neglected but very important topic across all areas of private law. By providing a principled analytical framework for the law of accessories and identifying common themes and problems that arise in the law, this book provides much-needed clarity. It explains the fundamental concepts that are used to impose liability on accessories, particularly the conduct and mental elements of liability: 'involvement' in the primary wrong and (generally) knowledge. It also sets out in detail the specific rules and principles of liability as these operate in different areas of common law, equity and statute. A comparative study across common law and criminal law jurisdictions, including the United States, also sheds new light on what is and what is not accessory liability.

Beginning in 1986 with the discovery of LaBaCuO by Bednorz and Muller, the field of high temperature (high-Tc) superconductivity remains the biggest intellectual challenge in condensed matter physics, with theoretical (and sometimes experimental!) consensus being elusive for almost thirty years. The underlying problem of understanding how large numbers of interacting particles can form various ordered states is tremendously daunting. This thesis begins with a historical overview of superconductivity, beginning with experimental discoveries, followed by an introduction of some theoretical concepts. In particular we discuss some details about electron-phonon coupling. As the systems being studied become more complex, the tools needed to fabricate and study them must also increase in complexity. Pushing forward new experimental discoveries in high-Tc therefore requires advancing both materials growth and characterization. The characterization techniques we introduce in this thesis are angle resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) and resonant inelastic x-ray scattering (RIXS). We will discuss ARPES in detail, but present only a small work on RIXS in a later chapter, as a detailed treatment of the latter is beyond the scope of this thesis. Next we introduce the fabrication technique of molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), and discuss the design and implementation of an experimental chamber capable of performing in-situ ARPES studies of films grown via MBE. The capabilities of this chamber are demonstrated through growth and measurement of films from two classes of materials: topological insulators and iron-based superconductors. In topological insulators, we show the capability of using a thermal cracking chalcogenide source to grow intrinsically doped films, which may be useful for future studies and devices. Recently, it had been discovered that single-unit-cell-thick (1UC) iron selenide (FeSe) films grown on strontium titanate (STO) demonstrate a large increase in superconducting transition temperature compared to bulk iron selenide. We use our MBE-ARPES chamber to grow and study FeSe films of varying thicknesses down to 1UC. We then discuss spectroscopic signatures of cross-interfacial coupling between electrons in the 1UC iron selenide and the STO substrate. This electron-phonon coupling is unprecedented and until recently had not be resolved with such clarity in any other solid state system. It is furthermore unusual in that it can enhance superconductivity in many different channels. We calculate the enhancement of Tc in 1UC FeSe/STO due to this coupling and find good agreement with experimental results, and suggest that such coupling can be broadly used to enhance Tc in other films. The thesis concludes with some future prospects and directions for study. We make the case that MBE-ARPES, and more generally the improved fabrication and characterization allowed by it, will be important to definitively elucidate the interactions between particles that make up novel phases in the solid state. Lastly, in the appendix we discuss some properties of a new six-axis in-vacuum manipulator, as well as cover some theoretical details of the FeSe and RIXS experiments.

Alderley Park Discovered is written by former AstraZeneca chemist George Hill, whose carefully researched text is presented in a wonderfully lively and readable style. The 400-acre site is a unique and beautiful natural environment with a rich, varied history, beginning with the creation of the Park by the Stanley family from the sixteenth century. It is also home to a diverse range of wildlife, and George Hill's considerable knowledge in this area reveals its wealth in the middle section of the book. He then tells of the Park's remarkable scientific inception by ICI, moving on to its huge growth under Zeneca and AstraZeneca, revealing the inside stories of the groundbreaking heart and cancer drugs discovered on the site. Now, under the auspices of Manchester Science Partnerships, Alderley Park has become a hub for Life Sciences, and is set to be developed for new residential and leisure purposes into the future. This fascinating, lavishly illustrated and beautifully produced book will be of huge appeal to anyone with connections to the Park, including current and former employees, local people and historians.

Authors in Court charts the 300-year-long dance between authorship and copyright that has shaped each institution's response to changing social norms of identity, privacy, and celebrity. Authors' self-presentations in court are often inflected by prevailing concepts of propriety and respectability. And judges, for their part, have not been immune to the reputation and standing of the authors who have appeared before them in legal dramas. Some authors strut their roles on the public stage. For example, Napoleon Sarony-the nineteenth-century photographer whose case established that photographs might be protected as works of art-was fond of marching along Broadway dressed in a red fez and high-top campaign boots. Others, such as the reclusive J. D. Salinger, enacted their dramas precisely by shrinking from attention. Mark Rose's case studies include the flamboyant writer Daniel Defoe; the self-consciously genteel poet Alexander Pope; the abolitionist Harriet Beecher Stowe; the once-celebrated dramatist Anne Nichols; and the provocative contemporary artist Jeff Koons. These examples suggest not only how social forms such as gender and gentility have influenced the self-presentation of authors in public and in court but also how the personal styles and histories of authors have influenced the development of legal doctrine.

This volume explores a dimension of authorship not given its due in the critical discourse to this point-authorship contested. Much of the existing critical literature begins with a text and the proposition that the text has an author. The debates move from here to questions about who the author is, whether or not the author's identity is even relevant, and what relationship she or he does and does not have to the text. The authors contributing to this collection, however, ask about circumstances surrounding efforts to prevent authors from even being allowed to have these questions asked of them, from even being identified as authors. They ask about the political, cultural, economic and social circumstances that motivate a prospective audience to resist an author's efforts to have a text published, read, and discussed. Particularly noteworthy is the range of everyday rhetorical situations in which contesting authorship occurs-from the production of a corporate document to the publication of fan fiction. Each chapter also focuses on particular instances in which authorship has been contested, demonstrating how theories about various forms of contested authorship play out in a range of events, from the complex issues surrounding peer review to authorship in the age of intelligent machines.

Building a Travel Risk Management Program: Traveler Safety and Duty of Care for Any Organization helps business and security professionals effectively manage traveler risk by showing them how to build a complete travel risk program. While global corporate travel risks are increasing exponentially, many security and business managers are not well-versed in the rapidly changing global landscape of travel risk, nor do they fully realize the multitude of risks their companies face if they don't comply with their legal obligations-"duty of care"-for protecting their employees from foreseeable harm, which can cost a company in the form of extensive fines, productivity loss, business interruptions, stock price loss, litigation, and even potential bankruptcy. This book is the first to bridge the gap between the topics of travel management, security, and risk management. It serves as a reference point for working with other departments, including human resources and legal, paving the way for better internal cooperation for travel managers and security managers. In addition, it helps organizations craft a travel risk management program for their unique needs that incorporates the most important policies and procedures that help them comply with legal obligations.

  • How chinese companies innovate
  • What is different about Chinese innovation?
  • Multinational corporations' innovation in China /with Dominique Jolly
  • How multinationals can organize for innovation in China
  • Open innovation in China /with Yongqin Zeng
  • Protecting intellectual property in China : legal provisions and strategic recommendations /with Maja Schmitt
  • Leadership lessons from China /with Lin Xu and Yi Ta Chng.
The history-making development of the Chinese economy has entered a new phase. China is moving aggressively from a strategy of imitation to one of innovation. Driven both by domestic needs and by global ambition, China is establishing itself at the forefront of technological innovation. Western businesses need to prepare for a tidal wave of innovation from China that is about to hit Western markets, and Chinese businesses need to understand the critical importance of innovation in their future. Experts George Yip and Bruce McKern explain this epic transformation and propose strategies for both Western and Chinese companies. This book is for everyone who does business with China or in China, or is interested in the development of the world's fastest-growing economy. Western CEOs can learn from Chinese companies and can create an effective innovation process in China, for China and the world. Chinese CEOs can benefit from understanding the strategies of their peers as they strive to enter foreign markets. And all Western businesses should prepare for disruption from their new competitors. Yip and McKern provide case studies of successful firms, outline ten ways in which the managerial and innovative capabilities of these firms differ from those of Western firms, and describe how multinationals doing business in China can become part of the Chinese ecosystem of new knowledge and technology. Yip and McKern argue that these innovation capabilities will be the basis for creating world-class products and services to meet the challenges of a new era of global competition.
