Property: Cases and Materials features sweeping coverage in a single volume, from "old property" (such as the basics of real estate law) to "new property" including the latest developments in intellectual property law. The text provokes debate on fundamental questions such as the creation of property, information as property, collective v. individual rights, and property as related to other bodies of law. Its coverage of intellectual property shows how the law grows and responds to social and technological change. Designed for flexibility, stand-alone chapters can be omitted if time constraints require. Property: Cases and Materials includes appellate decisions, statutes, regulations, administrative decisions, law review articles, and non-legal materials as well as principal cases--Elvis Presley International Memorial Foundation v. Crowell; Panavision International, L.P. v. Toeppen; Dred Scott v. Sandford; and Popov v. Hayashi on the dispute over the Barry Bonds home run ball.
The Third Edition has been heavily updated with recent cases, including more cases from the 21st century than any other major property casebook. A thorough update of all existing materials includes improved coverage of natural resources law and intellectual property.
Thoroughly updated, the revised Third Edition presents:
The discipline of law and economics has earned a reputation for developing plausible and empirically testable theories on the social functions and the impact of legal institutions. Property rights are a field in which this has been very successful. In this book, economic property rights theories are applied to case law in order to examine the practice and solution of real life conflicts. The authors examine the economic problems which are dealt with in these cases and evaluate the courts' decisions from an economic angle.
Cases are examined from across Europe, the UK and the US to allow international comparisons to be made. These comparisons reveal that, regardless of the legal system, many legal issues have similar economic roots and therefore similar models of economic analysis can be applied. But the analysis of these cases shows that the discipline of law and economics is not only successful in developing explanatory models but is also a useful approach for solving legal conflicts in individual cases. This book aims to bridge the gap between the academic and professional literature and demonstrate the benefits of the economic analysis of individual property rights cases to all those who are interested in law and economics.
This book constitutes volume two of a two volume examination of development community land issues in Southern Africa. Following from volume one Southern African Development Community Land Issues, this book considers the possibility of a new, sustainable land relations policy for Southern African Development Community States (SADC) that are currently mired up in land disputes that have become subject of domestic, regional and international tribunals. Chigara demonstrates that land relations in the SADC have always been, and will perhaps remain, a matter for constitutional regulation. Because constitutional laws are distinctive from other laws only by constitutional design, legal contests appear to be the least likely means for settlement in the sub-region. Only human rights inspired policies, that respond to the call for social justice by acknowledging both the current and the underlying contexts to the disputes, hold the most potential to resolve these disputes.
The book recommends efficient pedagogical counter-apartheid-rule psychological distortions regarding the significance of human dignity (PECAPDISH) as a pre-requisite and corollary to the dismantling of the salient physical legacy of apartheid-rule in affected SADC States. The book shows that PECAPDISH's potential and benefits would be enormous.
The book will be of interest to students and researchers of Property and Conveyancing Law, Human Rights Law, and Land Law.
In the twentieth century the application of national taxes to income from international business has created complex yet fascinating issues. The co-ordination of national jurisdiction to tax international income has rested formally on a network of bilateral treaties, but its practical administration has relied on a community of specialists; business advisers on the one hand and national officials on the other. The rapid growth of transnational corporations has put great pressure on the international tax system, especially due to the increasing difficulty of ensuring that the internal transfer prices between related firms in different countries reflect a fair and acceptable allocation of costs and profits. Furthermore, the widespread use of intermediary companies formed in tax havens has led to complex counter-measures and a constant process of treaty renegotiation and interaction with national law. The increasingly close administrative co-operation of tax authorities has been criticized as secretive and often arbitrary. Yet proposals for a more comprehensive framework and clearer legitimizing principles and procedures have conflicted with both the vested interests of international firms and with sensitivities about national sovereignity. But major reforms are necessary, even if implemented piecemeal. Using perspectives from law, economics and social science, this book provides a systematic introduction to the major problems of international taxation of business income. In doing so, it retrieves important policy issues that have become buried in technical intricacies of the international taxation system.
