Intellectual Property Rights in a Networked World is a collection of recent essays offering some fresh perspectives on the scope and future of intellectual property rights. The tripartite division of the book is designed to make this interdisciplinary topic more accessible and intelligible to readers of diverse backgrounds. Part I consists of a single essay that provides a broad overview of the main themes in intellectual property scholarship, such as normative intellectual property theory and the legal infrastructure for property protection. The second section of the book presents several essays that are intended to deepen the reader's understanding of intellectual property theory and show how it can help us to grapple with the proper allocation of property rights in cyberspace. And the final section further develops the themes in Part II but in greater detail and with a more practical orientation. For the most part, the essays in this section illustrate the costs and benefits of applying property rights to cyberspace. While intellectual property rights create dynamic incentive effects, they also entail social costs, and they are sometimes in tension with the development of a robust public domain.
Here the authors formulate and explore a new axiom of set theory, CPA, the Covering Property Axiom. CPA is consistent with the usual ZFC axioms, indeed it is true in the iterated Sacks model and actually captures the combinatorial core of this model. A plethora of results known to be true in the Sacks model easily follow from CPA. Replacing iterated forcing arguments with deductions from CPA simplifies proofs, provides deeper insight, and leads to new results. One may say that CPA is similar in nature to Martin's axiom, as both capture the essence of the models of ZFC in which they hold. The exposition is self contained and there are natural applications to real analysis and topology. Researchers who use set theory in their work will find much of interest in this book.
During the past 56 years Mary has either witnessed, been part of, or has been on the receiving end of abuse. Many of us experience abuse at one way or another in their lifetime. In fact, some have become co-dependent during the abuse period for fear of their life. Others have died and left this type of environment and are still is the process of healing. Abuse happens at various levels. The key is to recognize it and act on it no matter what happens.
As many of us were growing up we have learned through the test of time that abuse of any kind is wrong and should not be tolerated. "No Man or Woman should be a victim or an abuser." "Everyone should be treated equally." The Bible teaches that; "We should treat others as we would want to be treated."
What you are about to read talks about psychical, psychological, verbal, and emotional abuse at various levels. Some of the stories discussed are long term, experienced, and others were witnessed. There even are times when the parties involved became active participants and become abusers themselves.
Many of us grew up believing that woman should be subordinate to men. The Bible also teaches this idea. The difference is there are no teachings that teach about it being okay to abuse one another.
The Bible does teach us to; "Love our neighbor as ourselves."
