  • Intellectual Property - Brookfield Communications, Inc. v. West Coast Entertainment Corp.

    Caldwell, Patricia Elizabeth (GGU Law Digital Commons, 2010-09-23)
    In Brookfield Communications, Inc. v. West Coast Entertainment Corp., the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit discusses whether trademark or unfair competition laws prohibit the use of another's trademark in its web site's domain name and metatag. The court concluded there was a likelihood of confusion between the marks. Therefore, using the mark in the web site's domain name constitutes trademark infringement. In addition, using the mark in the site's metatag created initial interest confusion.
  • Digital Accessibility in the Hospitality and Tourism Industry: Legal and Ethical Considerations

    Burke, Debra D.; Sanney, Kenneth J.; Clapper, Dan (William & Mary Law School Scholarship Repository, 2020-05-15)
    Federal law requires accessibility for public sector websites. What about the web pages and apps of hotels, restaurants, and tourism providers? The Americans with Disabilities Act may cover private sector websites if they are considered a place of public accommodation, but the law is unclear. This Article will provide an overview of the legal responsibilities of operators to provide accessibility to persons with disabilities, discuss the World Wide Web Consortium’s guidelines for web accessibility, and argue that the hospitality and tourism industry has a unique ethical obligation to fill in the gap where the legal system has failed this population.

  • On the formation of degree and cluster-degree correlations in scale-free networks

    The cluster-degree of a vertex is the number of connections among the neighbors of this vertex. In this paper we study the cluster-degree of the generalized Barabasi Albert model (GBA model) whose exponent of degree distribution ranges from 2 to infinity. We present the mean-field rate equation for clustering and obtain analytically the degree-dependence of the cluster-degree. We study the distribution of the cluster-degree, which is size dependent but the tail is kept invariant for different degree exponents in the GBA model. In addition, for the degree dependence of the clustering coefficient, very different behaviors arise for different cases of the GBA model. The physical sense of the invariance property of cluster-degree is explained and more general cases are discussed. All the above theoretical results are verified by simulation. (c) 2005 Elsevier B.V.
