For one- or two-semester courses in Calculus for students majoring in business, social sciences, and life sciences. Intuition before Formality Calculus & Its Applications builds intuition with key concepts of calculus before the analytical material. For example, the authors explain the derivative geometrically before they present limits, and they introduce the definite integral intuitively via the notion of net change before they discuss Riemann sums. The strategic organization of topics makes it easy to adjust the level of theoretical material covered. The significant applications introduced early in the course serve to motivate students and make the mathematics more accessible. Another unique aspect of the text is its intuitive use of differential equations to model a variety of phenomena in Chapter 5, which addresses applications of exponential and logarithmic functions. Time-tested, comprehensive exercise sets are flexible enough to align with each instructor's needs, and new exercises and resources in MyLab(TM) Math help develop not only skills, but also conceptual understanding, visualization, and applications.

"Ethnobotany: A Phytochemical Perspective explores the chemistry behind hundreds of plant medicines, dyes, fibers, flavors, poisons, insect repellants, and many other uses of botanicals. Bridging the gap between ethnobotany and chemistry, this book presents an introduction to botany, ethnobotany, and phytochemistry to clearly join these fields of study and highlight their importance in the discovery of botanical uses in modern industry and research. Part I. Ethnobotany, explores the history of plant exploration, current issues such as conservation and intellectual property rights, and a review of plant anatomy. An extensive section on plant taxonomy highlights particularly influential and economically important plants from across the plant kingdom. Part II. Phytochemistry, provides fundamentals of secondary metabolism, includes line drawings of biosynthetic pathways and chemical structures, and describes traditional and modern methods of plant extraction and analysis. The last section is devoted to the history of native plants and people and case studies on plants that changed the course of human history from five geographical regions: Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, and Ocean. Throughout the entire book, vivid color photographs bring science to life, capturing the essence of human botanical knowledge and the beauty of the plant kingdom"--Provided by publisher.

This publication provides an unparalleled comparative analysis of two "hot topics" in the field of antitrust and unfair competition law with regard to a number of key countries. The first part of the book examines the prohibition of abuse of a dominant position and globalization in relation to two broad questions: first, whether there is consistency between the approaches of different jurisdictions to the notion of abuse, and, second, whether there are too many restrictions on legal rights and business opportunities resulting from the prohibition of abuse of dominance. The international report drafted by Professor Pinar Akman reveals that there are as many similarities as differences between the approaches of the twenty-one jurisdictions studied and presented in this book. This is an invitation to read the excellent international report as well as the reports on specific jurisdictions in order to grasp the variety of arguments and approaches of this antitrust area, which may, on the surface, appear alike. The second part gathers contributions on the question of protection and disclosure of trade secrets and know-how from various jurisdictions. The need for adequate protection of trade secrets has increased due to digitalization and the ease with which large volumes of misappropriated information can be reproduced. The comprehensive international report, prepared by Henrik Bengtsson, brings together these reflections by comparing various national positions. The book also discusses the resolutions passed by the General Assembly of the International League of Competition Law (LIDC) following a debate on each of these topics, and includes proposed solutions and recommendations.

  • Contents and AbstractsIntroduction chapter abstractThe United States' system for regulating advertising is outdated, leaving consumers at the mercy of new invasive marketing techniques. The introduction catalogs some of these techniques, including biometric data collection, online tracking, neuromarketing, and celebrity selling on social media, and indicates where they will be explored in greater detail. In his 1999 thriller Minority Report, director Steven Spielberg offered a dystopic vision of the future where advertising had become more personalized, more insistent, and more effective. The introduction maintains that Spielberg's vision has become dangerously close to reality thanks to lawmakers' unwillingness to address modern marketing's technological advances. 1Advertising on Trial chapter abstractThis chapter explores the relationship between advertising and the law. After a brief description of the different regulatory entities responsible for policing advertisers (e.g., courts, government agencies, private litigants), it illuminates the central themes embedded in advertising law. Unresolved debates over consumer rationalism, government paternalism, and the professional status of advertisers all played a part and continue to play a part in assessing the need for regulatory intervention. 2Colonizing New Advertising Spaces chapter abstractThis chapter details advertising's colonization of once adfree spaces through "guerilla marketing." Some spaces have become new targets of opportunity thanks to government willingness to allow advertising into civic territories like schools and national parks. Others are only now becoming commercial targets as technology makes new forms of advertising feasible. The chapter uses Michel Foucault's writings on normalization to show how advertisers exercise power over consumers in these spaces. Commercial annexation of these geographic arenas is not inevitable. The chapter describes how municipalities enacted zoning ordinances to block the spread of billboards on newly built roadways in the early 1900s. Today, however, First Amendment decisions evince great hostility to any government restrictions on advertising. The Supreme Court's increasing solicitude for the rights of corporate speakers gives advertisers more opportunities to turn regulable "public" spaces into unregulable "private" ones. 3The New Market Research chapter abstractThis chapter examines the social consequences of the technologies advertisers use to study potential customers. After discussing the sheer comprehensiveness of the growing commercial spying apparatus, the chapter turns to an analysis of potential harms from this surveillance. Life in a commercial Panopticon threatens intellectual privacy and opens up consumers to discriminatory treatment. In the late nineteenth century, Samuel Warren and Louis Brandeis famously theorized a new "right to privacy" as a response to technologies that allowed for the mass circulation of individuals' names and photographs without their permission. Today's technologies for commercial spying also implicate privacy interests. The problem is contract law: advertisers and media providers can secure permission in the form of online boilerplate before most data collection begins. The chapter concludes by arguing that any form of contractual private ordering will insufficiently safeguard consumer privacy. 4From Market Share to Mindshare chapter abstractThis chapter discusses how the new discipline of neuromarketing combines emerging insights from neuroscience with the study of consumer behavior. By allowing purchasing motivations to be probed without conscious participation, neuromarketing threatens to reveal and activate inner prejudices that consumers might prefer to keep from view. After describing neuromarketing and its social consequences, the chapter provides a historical source of comparison: the scandal over subliminal advertising in the mid-1950s. Both government and private regulators reacted swiftly to the prospect of subliminal ads. Yet neuromarketing techniques are completely unregulated, with the Federal Trade Commission and institutional review boards abdicating their supervisory role. Meanwhile, the law has changed to privilege the tactics of psychological persuasion employed by advertisers. This is most evident in the way trademark law has expanded to protect the emotional hold of a brand over consumers, particularly through suits for trademark dilution. 5Sellebrity chapter abstractThis chapter explores the way in which celebrities sell products and themselves in the age of social media. A vibrant marketplace exists that ties evidence of online visibility to lucrative endorsement deals. The chapter also describes how consumers adopt their own techniques of "micro-celebrity, " gaming their revelations to accumulate followers. Conveniently for advertisers, these revelations can be quantified in the form of "likes, " "shares, " and "retweets" and used to find individuals to champion their products. The problem is not so much with celebrities or digital communication per se, but with a system that goads users into personal disclosures, then strips them of control over those disclosures after they take place. The chapter ends by focusing on one particular legal construct-the right of publicity-that reinforces the importance of high visibility as a measure of status, even deeming it to be "property" that can be legally protected beyond death. 6Stopping Adcreep chapter abstractThis chapter offers a strategy for alerting the public to the dangers of adcreep. Utilizing the sociological study of social movement framing processes, the chapter proposes three potential narratives designed to organize a new wave of consumer activism. Reformers must stress modern advertising's complexity, the paternalism motivating some market research methods, and the anti-democratic implications of personalized advertising. The chapter also suggests corresponding legal reforms, including supervision of commercial data collection by the Federal Trade Commission and corporate research boards, greater leeway for outside speakers to use corporate trademarks and celebrity images, and a more nuanced understanding of First Amendment protection for commercial speech.

Advertising is everywhere. By some estimates, the average American is exposed to over 3,000 advertisements each day. Whether we realize it or not, "adcreep"-modern marketing's march to create a world where advertising can be expected anywhere and anytime-has come, transforming not just our purchasing decisions, but our relationships, our sense of self, and the way we navigate all spaces, public and private. Adcreep journeys through the curious and sometimes troubling world of modern advertising. Mark Bartholomew exposes an array of marketing techniques that might seem like the stuff of science fiction: neuromarketing, biometric scans, automated online spies, and facial recognition technology, all enlisted to study and stimulate consumer desire. This marriage of advertising and technology has consequences. Businesses wield rich and portable records of consumer preference, delivering advertising tailored to your own idiosyncratic thought processes. They mask their role by using social media to mobilize others, from celebrities to your own relatives, to convey their messages. Guerrilla marketers turn every space into a potential site for a commercial come-on or clandestine market research. Advertisers now know you on a deeper, more intimate level, dramatically tilting the historical balance of power between advertiser and audience. In this world of ubiquitous commercial appeals, consumers and policymakers are numbed to advertising's growing presence. Drawing on a variety of sources, including psychological experiments, marketing texts, communications theory, and historical examples, Bartholomew reveals the consequences of life in a world of non-stop selling. Adcreep mounts a damning critique of the modern American legal system's failure to stem the flow of invasive advertising into our homes, parks, schools, and digital lives.

For a generation, Jerry Mashaw, the most boundary-pushing scholar in the field of administrative law, has argued that bureaucrats can and should self-generate the norms that give us a government of laws. American Administrative Law from the Inside Out brings together a collection of twenty-one essays from leading scholars that interrogate, debate, and expand on themes in Mashaw's work as well as on the fundamental premises of their field. Mashaw has illuminated new ways of seeing administrative law, composed sweeping indictments of its basic principles, and built bridges to other disciplines. The contributors to this volume provide a collective account of administrative law's commitments, possibilities, limitations, and strains as an approach to governance and as an intellectual enterprise.

In a provocative essay, philosopher Jeffrie Murphy asks: 'what would law be like if we organized it around the value of Christian love, and if we thought about and criticized law in terms of that value?'. This book brings together leading scholars from a variety of disciplines to address that question. Scholars have given surprisingly little attention to assessing how the central Christian ethical category of love - agape - might impact the way we understand law. This book aims to fill that gap by investigating the relationship between agape and law in Scripture, theology, and jurisprudence, as well as applying these insights to contemporary debates in criminal law, tort law, elder law, immigration law, corporate law, intellectual property, and international relations. At a time when the discourse between Christian and other world views is more likely to be filled with hate than love, the implications of agape for law are crucial.

  • Conclusion.
"Markets run on information. Buyers make decisions by relying on their knowledge of the products available, and sellers decide what to produce based on their understanding of what buyers want. But the distribution of market information has changed, as consumers increasingly turn to sources that act as intermediaries for information--companies like Yelp and Google. Antitrust Law in the New Economy considers a wide range of problems that arise around one aspect of information in the marketplace: its quality. Sellers now have the ability and motivation to distort the truth about their products when they make data available to intermediaries. And intermediaries, in turn, have their own incentives to skew the facts they provide to buyers, both to benefit advertisers and to gain advantages over their competition. Consumer protection law is poorly suited for these problems in the information economy. Antitrust law, designed to regulate powerful firms and prevent collusion among producers, is a better choice. But the current application of antitrust law pays little attention to information quality. Mark Patterson discusses a range of ways in which data can be manipulated for competitive advantage and exploitation of consumers (as happened in the LIBOR scandal), and he considers novel issues like "confusopoly" and sellers' use of consumers' personal information in direct selling. Antitrust law can and should be adapted for the information economy, Patterson argues, and he shows how courts can apply antitrust to address today's problems"-- Provided by publisher.

  • Introduction
  • Culture clashes
  • Ontology, copyright, and artistic practice
  • The myth of unoriginality
  • Authorship, power, and responsibility
  • Toward an ontology of authored works
  • The rights of authors
  • The rights of others
  • Appropriation and transformation
  • Afterword.
The art scene today is one of appropriation of remixing, reusing, and recombining the works of other artists. From the musical mash-ups of Girl Talk to the pop-culture borrowings of Damien Hirst and Jeff Koons, it's clear that the artistic landscape is shifting which leads to some tricky legal and philosophical questions. In this up-to-date, thorough, and accessible analysis of the right to copyright, Darren Hudson Hick works to reconcile the growing practice of artistic appropriation with innovative views of artists' rights, both legal and moral. Engaging with long-standing debates about the nature of originality, authorship, and artists' rights, Hick examines the philosophical challenges presented by the role of intellectual property in the artworld and vice versa. Using real-life examples of artists who have incorporated copyrighted works into their art, he explores issues of artistic creation and the nature of infringement as they are informed by analytical aesthetics and legal and critical theory. Ultimately, Artistic License provides a critical and systematic analysis of the key philosophical issues that underlie copyright policy, rethinking the relationship between artist, artwork, and the law.

R&D activity can play a central role in raising productivity. Australia compares well in terms of research excellence. However, there is scope for better translation of publicly funded research into commercial outcomes. Strengthening incentives for collaborative research is essential. A simpler funding system for university research that provides sharper and more transparent incentives for research partnerships is important in this regard. Research-business linkages would also be boosted by more effective programmes encouraging business to collaborate, measures promoting greater mobility of researchers between the two sectors, and steps to ensure that intellectual property arrangements are not a barrier to knowledge. In Australia financial support for encouraging business innovation relies mostly on an R&D tax incentive; raising additionality and reducing compliance costs would enhance the effectiveness of the scheme. Maximising the benefits from public investment in research further hinges upon a well-coordinated science, research and innovation system through a “whole-of-government” approach and consolidating certain programmes. Reform initiatives underway, notably those in the National Innovation and Science Agenda, are welcome.
