  • Propertization, Contract, Competition, and Communication: Law's Struggle to Adapt to the Transformative Powers of the Internet

    Barnhizer, David (EngagedScholarship@CSU, 2006-01-01)
    This Symposium focuses in part on the ideas of Margaret Jane Radin as a point of departure for the various contributions. A key part of the analysis includes the process she calls propertization in the context of intellectual property rules and the Internet. The approach taken in this introductory essay is twofold. The first part presents some key points raised by the Symposium contributors. Of course, that overview is necessarily incomplete, because the contributions represent a rich group of analyses about vital concerns relating to how our legal system should respond to the challenge of the Internet and information systems through the application and development of doctrines relating to areas of property and contract.
  • Globalization of Labor Markets and the Growth Prospects of Nations

    Basu, Kaushik (World Bank, Washington, DC, 2016-03-10)
    The many and varied crises in the world
 economy since 2007 seem to have different origins and
 diverse manifestations. This paper contends that there is
 however a structural shift beneath the global economy that
 is now reaching a critical mass, and that accounts for many
 of these crises, despite the diversity of manifestations.
 This shift is occasioned by two kinds of technological
 changes--the familiar labor-saving and what is here called
 "labor-linking." The paper argues that these
 changes (1) create a short-term window of opportunity for
 developing and emerging economies, but (2) in the long run
 constitute a major, multilateral policy challenge for all.
 To meet this challenge, we have to think outside the box and
 conceive of innovative policies. The paper briefly
 speculates on what those policies might be.
  • Money for nothing and content for free? Willingness to pay for digital journalism

    Landesanstalt für Medien NRW; Buschow, Christopher; Wellbrock, Christian-Mathias (DEUDüsseldorf, 2019-11-08)
    True to the motto “Money for nothing and content for free”, both up-to-date information and thoroughly researched reporting are principally used free of charge in their digital forms. Considering this, how can journalism be funded sustainably? This study focuses on users and investigates the reasons for their lack of willingness to pay for content, as well as what they do pay for, and why.
  • E-recepta : element cyfryzacji publicznego systemu zdrowia

    Flis, Marcin (2020)
    E-recepty są kluczowym elementem systemu informatycznego dla cyfrowego rozwoju publicznego systemu opieki zdrowotnej w Polsce. Proces powstania tego systemu informatycznego był długi. Z dniem 8 stycznia 2020 roku obieg recept w formie elektronicznej stał się obowiązkowy. Pandemia, wywołana koronawirusem SARS-CoV-2, zmusiła placówki medyczne do zdalnego realizowania części swoich zadań. Stan pandemii to także test na działanie systemu e-recept. Na przykładzie tego systemu informatycznego zostanie przedstawiony proces cyfryzacji publicznego systemu ochrony zdrowia w Polsce. Czym jest e-recepta i w jaki sposób działa? Jak e-recepta powiązana jest z innymi systemami informatycznymi w ramach administracji państwowej? Jaka jest rola poszczególnych aktorów ochrony zdrowia wykorzystujących ten system? Jak ten system informatyczny wspiera realizacje zadań polityki zdrowotnej w czasie pandemii? Dzięki odpowiedzi na te pytania możliwe będzie wskazanie znaczenia e-recepty w funkcjonowaniu publicznego systemu ochrony zdrowia w Polsce.
