This is a realistic dissection of the current status of children's rights at multiple levels of government and private society. Each chapter focuses on one aspect of children's rights (i.e. poverty, statelessness, sexual abuse, nutrition, education, armed conflict, etc.). A dynamic mix of commonsensical reasoning, formal legal inquiry, and practical yet professional language enables readers from stratified segments of the population to engage seamlessly with the material. Rejecting the ivory tower view that real world progress can be sustained through continuance of the same regulatory and political measures that broke ground in the latter 20th century, the author delves deeper into more pragmatic elements of children's rights why they are not universal and what prevents their achievement. Detailed scrutiny of data, law, and contemporary social attitudes move the text from one paradoxical situation to the next perpetual limitation in the quest for eradication of abuse and deprivation of fundamental human rights. However, hope is not lost in the midst of these empirical findings. Instead, thorough contemplation of the failures and shortcomings of child protective systems resurrects a spirit of compassion, and a more personal challenge emerges for readers, who are urged to undertake small-scale actions. We live in a time of unparalleled communications, where virtually anybody with a mobile phone can access information about people around the globe from any place. The critical mass in the movement for human rights which start in childhood years has long been established. The word has spread across the land through varied forms of media. Children's rights today are not threatened by ignorance inasmuch as they are by disinterest, disengagement, and outright opposition to those rights in practice. In order to breathe new life into the discussion, fresh and resourceful ways of thinking about the subject are needed. For rights to grow and evolve through the 21st century, stakeholders cannot afford to alienate potential allies with the same bullish rhetoric that led to the disillusionment of millions of supporters. Today's participants are tech-savvy, independent, and not overly optimistic about accomplishing goals in the shortest of terms. Child Protection in an Interconnected World is written for those who understand that failure has occurred time and again, and that only through acceptance of the factual essence of our condition may we find a suitable path toward continued growth and achievement as individuals and collectives. The book advocates the idea that changes and improvements can and will happen, but they will be incremental, transgenerational, and built upon mutual cooperation from the bottom up.
This book is about young friends forming a detective group. They use their knowledge of smartphones and technology to help others. Sometimes they may time travel, and sometimes they help out at the zoo, but you will always find them together experiencing life with technology.
The supplementary protection certificate (SPC) prolongs the term of patents for pharmaceutical products for a maximum of five additional years, ie the certificate becomes effective at a time when the respective pharmaceutical is widely known on the market and thus generates the maximum revenue, which explains the enormous economic value of the SPC. The SPC's legal bases are two European SPC-Regulations. The SPC is based upon European or national patents. SPCs protect some of the most valuable products in the pharmaceutical industry where each day of additional protection may be worth millions of Euros. At the same time, the requirements for obtaining such protection, the scope of protection, etc are highly disputed and have been the subject of numerous decisions of the ECJ. There is only limited detailed literature on SPCs, not reflecting the economic relevance SPCs have obtained in recent years. German jurisprudence on SPCs is of special importance, as this has often been the basis for decisions of the ECJ. Further, the German market is one of the leading markets for pharmaceuticals and thus for SPCs. Thus, German case law is used to illustrate the comments. This book is addressed to patent attorneys, in particular in-house and external, working for pharmaceutical companies, and attorneys-at-law specialising in patent law, especially in Europe but essentially world wide.
