Позитивное право авторов и информационный капитал
The article analyzes the infl uence of the regulation on the non-repayable transfer of a work to the general public at the author’s will. This regulation is being proposed as an amendment to Russian intellectual property law. The author of the article believes that this legal rule will enrich Russian law with positive author’s rights in addition to negative prohibitive powers. The next step proposed is to legalize the author’s right to transfer works to the public domain. Positive author’s rights are considered in the context of accumulating information capital in order to develop Russia’s post-industrial economy.
This paper is dedicated to the establishment of inclusive legal method in the system of intellectual property rights in terms of information economy.
The subject of this monograph is intellectual property law in Russia. This study focuses on legal mechanisms of protection of intellectual property rights since, in Russia, legislation is the main source of such rights. Though neither judicial practice nor theses propounded in legal literature are formally considered sources of intellectual property law in Russia, they at times seriously affect court rulings, and so much attention is paid to them in this study in dealing with key issues and points of dispute.
All references to legislation in this monograph are valid as of August 2014, but account is taken of amendments to Part Four of the Civil Code that are due to enter into force on 1 October 2014.
In this article are discussed the limits of application of general theory of systems in legal science. The author criticizes utilization of the notion «systemacity» for description of how legal norms are organized and how legal phenomena are structured. In author’s opinion, the term «system» is charged with a multiplicity of meanings, so that in social sciences this term is sometimes applied for characterization of the fundamentally different phenomena and realities. That is why legal scientists shall be especially careful in using this term. In the Russian jurisprudence the term «system» is applied for both «social reality of law» and for a set of the norms belonging to the positive law of the country. This use is tautological and has no conceptual justification. The author proposes to use the term «legal order» only for description of a structured set of legal rules, reserving the use of «system» for characterization of law from the point of view of comparative jurisprudence, legal sociology and other sciences which examine the relations between the law and other sectors of social reality. Argumentation in favor of «systemacity» of law is theoretically based on philosophy of objectivism. It results in vain illusions about a capacity of norms to produce themselves a legal order which emerges automatically insomuch as law is a functional entity. But this «systemacity» is not given in (the) law a priori. Logical coherence and consistence of norms always remain relative, being the outcome of the purposeful activity of lawmakers, judges, legal scholars. It is naïve to suppose that rules can enter into the law and find their adequate position there without human intervention. Such understanding can lead to apology of irresponsibility of those who create redundant and inconsistent norms in the false hope that these norms will anyways find their place in the law grace to «systemacity» of this latter.
The article is devoted to a particular form of freedom of assembly — the right to counter-demonstrate. The author underlines the value of this right as an element of democratic society, but also acknowledges the risk of violent actions among participants of opposing demonstrations. Due to this risk, the government may adopt adequate measures restricting the right to counter-demonstrate, certain types of which are analyzed in this paper.
