The protection of privacy and personality is one of the most fascinating
issues confronting any legal system. This book provides a detailed
comparative analysis of the laws relating to commercial exploitation of
personality in France, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United
States. It examines the difficulties in reconciling privacy and personality
with intellectual property rights in an individual’s identity and in balan-
cing such rights with the competing interests of freedom of expression
and freedom of competition.
Commercial appropriation of personality is not a new phenomenon,
although debate concerning its status and mode of legal regulation is
becoming increasingly topical. The practice of using celebrities and ordinary
individuals with no obvious public profile to help sell a vast range
of goods and services flourishes.
The exploitation of natural resources of the moon and other celestial bodies represents one of the most fascinating developments in the fields of space law and space related activities. The mining and use of extraterrestrial mineral resources may not only contribute to the betterment of conditions of people on earth but may also enable the realization of projects such as those envisaging a permanent human presence on the surface of the moon and other celestial bodies.
In this paper, we introduce a framework that identifies online plagiarism by exploiting lexical, syntactic and semantic features that includes duplication-gram, reordering and alignment of words, POS and phrase tags, and semantic similarity of sentences. We establish an ensemble framework to combine the predictions of each model. Results demonstrate that our system can not only find considerable amount of real-world online plagiarism cases but also outperforms several state-of-the-art algorithms and commercial software. ...

The macroeconomic performance of individual countries varied markedly during the 2007–09
global financial crisis. While China’s growth never dipped below 6% and Australia’s worst
quarter was no growth, the economies of Japan, Mexico and the United Kingdom suffered
annualised GDP contractions of 5–10% per quarter for five to seven quarters in a row. We
exploit this cross-country variation to examine whether a country’s macroeconomic
performance over this period was the result of pre-crisis policy decisions or just good luck.
The answer is a bit of both.

“Cyanide” is a chemical with a long and fascinating history of respectful and productive use by
mankind. The fundamental cyanide species, the cyanide ion CN−, is a highly versatile and strong
binder of metals in aqueous solution, a property that has been exploited in ingenious ways for
commercial processes that have benefited society. The best known and largest volume uses of cyanide
are in the gold mining and electroplating industries.
The purpose of this book is to answer those questions, from the point of view of people who want to use Java, but want to do so reliably, securely and safely. That makes this book different from much recent writing on Java, which focuses, perfectly legitimately, on how a Java system can be broken into and how to avoid those dangers. On the contrary, this book focuses on how Java can be made secure and how to exploit its strengths. The goal is to provide practical help to the various groups involved in making a Java-based application or Web site into an industrial-strength commercial proposit.
Chemical reaction engineering is concerned with the exploitation of chemical reactions on a commercial scale. It's goal is the successful design and operation of chemical reactors. This text emphasizes qualitative arguments, simple design methods, graphical procedures, and frequent comparison of capabilities of the major reactor types. Simple ideas are treated first, and are then extended to the more complex.
ntellectual property refers to products of the human intellect that have commerci
value and that receive legal protection. typically, intellectual property encom-
passes creative works, products, processes, imagery, inventions and services and is
protected by patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret law.
the commercial value of intellectual property comes from the ability of its owne
to control and exploit its use. if the owner could not legally require payment in
exchange for use, ownership of the intellectual property would have litle if any
commercial value. ...
Central to any policy discussion of regulating food advertising to children is an understanding
of the nature of children’s comprehension of advertising. Numerous studies have documented
that young children have little understanding of the persuasive intent of advertising
(Strassburger, 2001; Kunkel, 1995; John, 1999). Young children are easily exploited because
they do not understand that commercials are designed to sell products and because they do not
yet possess the cognitive ability to comprehend or evaluate advertising.
A comprehensive comparative treatment of six instances of
time-limited interests in land as encountered in fourteen
European jurisdictions. The survey explores the commercial or
social origins of each legal institution concerned and highlights
their enforceability against third parties, their content and their
role in land development.
Most observers of the economy now accept that a major shift occurred during the 1970s.
The rapid productivity growth of the postwar years came to an end—for reasons that
are still being debated among economists and historians. Wage growth lagged, and the
economy suffered multiple shocks from energy prices and rapid inflation. The surge of
births in the postwar baby boom meant that the labor force grew rapidly, while women
were entering the labor force in numbers unprecedented in peacetime.
The commercial success of independent youth-oriented
pictures such as those of AIP was matched by that of some more edgy
and disturbing independent productions in the same generic territory,
TV commercials for tobacco also came under fire. When th
were barred by Congress in 1972, cigarette makers started talkin
about how to exploit the movies in a more systematic way, usin
Hollywood to position their brands in the global marketplace.
Exploring privacy risks in information networks is analysing the dangers and
hazards that are related to personal information about users of a network. It is
about investigating the dynamics and complexities of a setting where humans are
served by technology in order to exploit the network for their own good. In the
information network, malicious activities are motivated by commercial factors in
that the attacks to privacy are happening, not in the name of national security, but
in the name of the free market together with technological advancements.
We present a set of algorithms that enable us to translate natural language sentences by exploiting both a translation memory and a statistical-based translation model. Our results show that an automatically derived translation memory can be used within a statistical framework to often ﬁnd translations of higher probability than those found using solely a statistical model.
The Experts’ Meeting was held in the Mitsubishi Research Institute and was attended by 81
people (see Appendix I for the list of participants).
Childnet International and the Internet Association, Japan have been co-operating for some
years on issues that affect child safety and participation on the Internet. The two organisations
held a joint meeting at the Second World Congress on the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of
Children in Yokohama in December 2001. At that meeting some of the challenges posed by
the new 3G mobile services in Japan were first discussed.
"Autobiography of a Pocket-Handkerchief" was James Fenimore Cooper's first serious
attempt at magazine writing, and Graham's Magazine would publish other contributions from him over the
next few years, notably a series of biographic sketches of American naval officers, and the novel "Jack Tier;
or The Florida Reef" (1846- 1848).
