  • The papers in this collection were presented at a conference held in Saskatoon, Canada, on 17-19 October 1996 under the auspices of the College of Law, University of Saskatchewan. There are many people and several institutions to thank for making that conference, and this collection of essays, possible. The organisation of the conference was one of the pleasurable duties I undertook in 1996 as the Law Foundation of Saskatchewan Visiting Professor at the College of Law, University of Saskatchewan.

  • Although open content licenses only account for a fraction of all copyright licenses currently enforced in the world, their introduction has had profound effects on the use and dissemination of information. This book explores the theoretical underpinnings of these licenses and offers insight on the practical advantages and inconveniences of their use.

  • The spirit of the DIT community of academic and non-academic members of staff is something which defines the Institute and has been key to its successful development throughout its history. Circa 2,500 people are employed in DIT in many different roles. Although currently dispersed across so many locations around the city, there has been a concerted effort to develop a ‘One DIT’ approach to delivery of teaching and support to students.

  • Previous World’s Worst Pollution reports have ranked pollution sources by the potential number of people at risk (2010) and created disease burden estimates for location-specific case studies (2011). This year’s report is the first attempt at creating a widespread estimate of disease burden attributable to toxic pollution from industrial sources. Previous estimates from these reports indicated that the at-risk population was in the range of 100 million people.

  • Freshness and update consistency: There are many possible ways of propagating updates from the data origins to intermediate nodes that have materialized views of this data. Some possible solutions would be invalidation messages pushed by the server or client-initiated validation messages; however, both of these incur overhead that limits scala- bility. Another approach is a timeout/expiration-based protocol, as employed by DNS and web caches. This approach has lower overhead, at the cost of providing much looser guarantees about freshness and consistency.

  • The intuition underpinning these results is straightforward. In a highly connected system, the counterparty losses of a failing institution can be more widely dispersed to, and absorbed by, other entities. So increased connectivity and risk sharing may lower the probability of contagious default. But, conditional on the failure of one institution triggering contagious defaults, a high number of nancial linkages also increases the potential for contagion to spread more widely.
