Regulating Style Intellectual Property Law and the Business of Fashion in Guatemala


Regulating Style: Intellectual Property Law and the Business of Fashion in Guatemala By Kedron Thomas
2016 | 328 Pages | ISBN: 0520290968 | PDF | 4 MB
Fashion knockoffs are everywhere. Even in the out-of-the-way markets of highland Guatemala, fake branded clothes offer a cheap, stylish alternative for people who cannot afford high-priced originals. Fashion companies have taken notice, ensuring that international trade agreements include stronger intellectual property protections to prevent brand "piracy." In Regulating Style, Kedron Thomas approaches the fashion industry from the perspective of indigenous Maya people who make and sell knockoffs, asking why they copy and wear popular brands, how they interact with legal frameworks and state institutions that criminalize their livelihood, and what is really at stake for fashion companies in the global regulation of style.

Regulating Homosexuality in Soviet Russia, 1956-91 A Different History


Regulating Homosexuality in Soviet Russia, 1956-91: A Different History by Rustam Alexander
English | May 25, 2021 | ISBN: 1526155761 | True EPUB | 256 pages | 2.3 MB
This ground-breaking book challenges the widespread view that sex and homosexuality were unmentionable in the USSR. The Khrushchev and Brezhnev eras (1956-82) have remained obscure and unexplored from this perspective. Drawing on previously undiscovered sources, Alexander fills in this critical gap. The book reveals that from 1956 to 1982, doctors, educators, jurists and police officers discussed homosexuality.

Raj Chari, "Regulating lobbying: A global comparison, 2nd edition "
English | ISBN: 1526117258 | 2019 | 256 pages | EPUB | 819 KB
Governments worldwide are developing sunshine policies that increase transparency in politics, where a key initiative is regulating lobbyists. Building on the pioneering first edition, this book updates its examination of all jurisdictions with regulations, from the Americas, Europe, Middle East, Asia, and Australia. Unlike any book, it offers unique insights into how the regulations compare and contrast against each other, offering a revamped theoretical classification of different regulatory environments and situating each political system therein. This edition innovatively considers different measurements to capture the robustness of lobbying laws in terms of promoting transparency and accountability. And, based on the authors’ experience of advising governments globally, it closes with a no-nonsense guide on how to make a lobbying law. This is of value to policymakers seeking to introduce or amend regulations, and lobbyists seeking to influence this process.

Regulating Capital Setting Standards for the International Financial System


David Andrew Singer, "Regulating Capital: Setting Standards for the International Financial System "
English | ISBN: 0801476712 | 2010 | 176 pages | EPUB | 707 KB
Financial instability threatens the global economy. The volatility of capital movements across national borders has led many observers to argue for a reformed "global financial architecture," a body of consistent rules and institutions to prevent financial crises. Yet regulators have a decidedly mixed record in their attempts to create global standards for the financial system. David Andrew Singer seeks to explain the varying pressures on regulatory agencies to negotiate internationally acceptable rules and suggests that the variation is largely traceable to the different domestic political pressures faced by regulators.
