  • The RIAA, the DMCA, and the Forgotten Few Webcasters: A Call for Change in Digital Copyright Royalties

    Myers, Kellen (Digital Repository @ Maurer Law, 2009-03-01)
    Emerging webcasting technology is playing an increasing role in modem society. The ease of use of webcast technology has brought about an increased user base as well as an increased viability for small webcasting businesses. However, the mix-tape genre of independent Internet radio has been financially and legislatively abused as a forerunner of rapidly advancing digital technology and concerns over protecting copyright royalties. This Note argues for a revision of the DMCA to provide a middle ground between protecting copyrighted works and allowing the continued existence of Internet radio.
  • ¿Cómo facilitar el ejercicio de los derechos de los ciudadanos en la Administración electrónica?

    Cerrillo Martínez, Agustí (IDP Revista de Internet Derecho y Política, 2019-05-15)
    Citizens have seen their rights extended in their relations with public administrations thanks to the expansion of electronic media. However, this recognition has not been accompanied with the necessary development of e-Government. In this article we analyse the different mechanisms which are envisaged by law and the means that public administrations offer to help citizens exercise their rights, giving an evaluation of their adequacy to respond to the needs which arise from citizens using electronic media in their relations with public administrations.
  • Electronic government, digital invisibility and fundamental social rights

    Reyna, Justo; Gabardo, Emerson; Santos, Fabio de Sousa (Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina, 2020-11-05)
    The article aims to analyze the impact of the digitalization of Public Administration activities, labeled Electronic Government, on the ability to fulfill fundamental social rights. It adopts as a base the concept of digital invisibility, defined as the inability to have access to the digital government, mainly based on empirical data to access the world wide web. It uses the deductive methodology from the bibliographic analysis about the matter. It verifies the hypothesis that the use of technological tools as unique mediators poses a particular risk to social rights due to digital invisibility. Taking into account the objective dimension of fundamental rights, it concludes that the State must guarantee digital access broadly, especially to vulnerable groups. State recipients should not be imposed insurmountable obstacles in the search for the fulfillment of constitutional promises.
