Extractions: Trade Secrets ... Law and Intellectual Property Why care about intellectual property rights? Why care about intellectual property rights? Isn't it something of interest to the birds... or maybe the attorneys? If you said 'Yes', think again!! Consider the internet provider in Lithuania or the one person startup in Canada who download the contents of your site onto their servers, change the headers, and are deriving commercial benefits from that content. Consider the professor in California or the faculty staff member in the UK who believe that they have all the justifications for copying your publication without attribution or authorization since they are using it only for non-commercial teaching purposes. How about the research lab director at a large northeastern United States university who firmly believes that he is right in making physical copies of your online content on their server for their testing purposes?
Extractions: Financial Services in an Electronic Age: Some Emerging Legal Issues By Alan Gahtan and Jeff Graham - June 1997 Technology is facilitating the creation of new approaches to service delivery and permitting the introduction of new electronic products. For example, a number of major Canadian financial institutions are now offering financial products and services through the Internet. In many cases, their competitors are scrambling to catch up. Some financial institutions view the Internet as an alternative product delivery channel. For others, including the new Citizens Bank of Canada, a subsidiary of Vancouver Savings Credit Union and ING Direct, the trust company subsidiary of ING Bank (Netherlands), the Internet is a primary delivery channel. No proprietary software or private communication network is necessary. Customers can use industry standard Web browser software and must arrange their own access to the Internet through an Internet service provider. The conduct of financial transactions through the Internet is not likely to displace other more traditional channels anytime soon. However, financial institutions appear to be drawn by two factors. The first is the lower transaction costs associated with transactions conducted electronically as opposed to their branch networks. The second attraction is the demographics of customers who are interested in using the Internet to access financial services. One American study projected that with respect to the banking industry, each Internet customer is likely to be 50-250% more profitable than the average banking customer.

Excerpt: "Some enlightened sysops will create mechanisms by means of which users can participate in making rules and overseeing their enforcement.

Extractions: By M aureen M inehan Too old. Too slow. Too stodgy. Too stubborn. Do any of these phrases apply to you? If you're over the age of 45, your employer may think they do, even if you don't. Throughout Europe, negative stereotypes of workers in their mid-40s and beyond affect the ability of a significant portion of the population to find and keep work. "Older people's skills and experience are going to waste because many employers discriminate against them," says Gordon Lishman, director general of Age Concern England, a London-based nonprofit organization representing the interests of older Britons. Could this happen to you? Unfortunately, the answer may be yes. Joan Fyfe says she never imagined that her age would prevent her from working, but that's just what happened. Ms. Fyfe, a former quality manager for a British manufacturing company in her fifties, says she was one of eight employees terminated when the company needed to cut costs in 2000. Of the eight, two were 49 years old and six were over 50, she says. When they questioned why they were selected for redundancy over employees with less experience or skill, the group was told they were "too old," Ms. Fyfe says. Ms. Fyfe says she's still astounded by her situation. "Age discrimination is a common phrase, but when it happens to you, it becomes much more real," she says.

Extractions: The popularity of the Internet, along with advances in digital imaging and desktop publishing, has raised many issues among writers, artists and photographers. Appropriation of intellectual property by pirates can now be accomplished with ease and anonymity. A wealth of information and images abound on the Internet that can be copied with a keystroke onto a hard drive. From there, the use of purloined property is limited only by the imagination. Image manipulation software makes it easy to modify an image obtained from another's website. And desktop publishing software makes it possible to take the product of another's research and use it in a newsletter, magazine article or website in a matter of seconds. Nonetheless, knowledge of the law can protect you and your work to some extent. It can also help keep you out of legal trouble by updating you about the rights artists and writers have over the use of their materialsif and when you are tempted to use something you did not create.

Memory is therefore a key to responsible action....Romanticism is a fantasized version of the past. Unpleasant events and personal or national failures are erased, while comforts and successes are exaggerated. Or wrongs may be exaggerated and comforts and successes erased. On either side romanticism is intended to energize false hopes. In its most exaggerated form it denies the relevance of memory and constructs free-standing abstract ideologies. - John Ralston Saul what's new at this archive, the last modification having been made on 27 November, 2001 (always check what's new first!!), or go to the top of the archive These documents are provided as a service to Canadians and others interested in Canada, who regularly travel the net and who are curious in regards to, "what the fuss is all about."

Extractions: September, 2003 Important Notice Please note that this is only an introduction to age discrimination law. If you believe yourself to be a victim of age discrimination, please consult with an attorney to have your claim fully evaluated. If you believe you have been subjected to discrimination due to your age, you may be able to secure relief under state or federal law. Please note, however, that age discrimination protections are based upon allegations that an employee or applicant suffered discrimination for being "too old for the job". It is ordinarily legal to discriminate on the basis that somebody is "too young for the job". The ADEA also extends protections to employees, against retaliation for filing age discrimination charges, for participating in an investigation or litigation under the ADEA, or for testifying in related proceedings.
