Brexit and Financial Services: Law and Policy
This timely book examines the legal and regulatory implications of Brexit for financial services. The UK's withdrawal from the EU is likely to have significant market, political, and policy consequences for the UK financial system, for the single market and the euro area, and for the international financial system. As the UK disentangles its financial system from the EU, law will matter to a profound extent. Treaties, legislation, and regulation, at UK, EU, and international levels, and the many dynamics and interests which drive them, will frame and shape the ultimate settlement between the UK and the EU. Law will also shape how the EU financial system develops post-Brexit and how the international financial system responds. Written by leading authorities in the field, this book addresses and contextualises the legal, regulatory, and policy issues across five dimensions, which correspond to the major legal spheres engaged: financial regulation implications and market access consequences for the UK financial system; labour law and free movement consequences for the UK financial system; the implications internally for EU financial governance and the euro area; the implications and relevance of the EEA/EFTA financial services market; and the trade law and World Trade Organization law implications.

Ethical Business Practice and Regulation: A Behavioural and Values-Based Approach to Compliance and Enforcement
This book explains the concepts of Ethical Business Practice (EBP) and Ethical Business Regulation (EBR), a new paradigm in compliance and enforcement based on behavioural science and ethics. EBR provides the basis for an effective relationship between a business and its regulators, resulting in better outcomes for both. EBR is attracting extensive attention from regulators and businesses around the world. The UK Government's 2017 Regulatory Futures Review draws on EBR as the foundation for its policy of `regulatory self-assurance'. EBR draws on findings from behavioural science, responsive regulation, safety and business and integrity management to create a practical and holistic approach. Examples include the open culture that is essential for civil aviation safety, the Primary Authority agreements between regulators and national businesses, and feedback mechanisms provided by market vigilance systems and sectoral consumer ombudsmen. This book provides an essential blueprint for sustainable business and effective future regulation.

The Writing on the Wall: On the Decomposition of Capitalism and its Critics
The 2008 global financial crisis has led to the re-emergence in public discourse of the idea that capitalism could end. For many, it was proof of the notion that capitalist civilisation has an endemic tendency towards crisis that will ultimately bring about its demise. Must we assume, however, that such an eventuality would inevitably result in the liberation of humanity, as many orthodox Marxists claim? Through a collection of specially revised essays, first published in France between 2007 and 2010, Anselm Jappe draws on the radical new perspective of the critique of value as a critical tool with which to understand today's world and to re-examine the question of human emancipation. The Writing on the Wall offers a powerful new analysis of the decomposition of capitalism and its critics.

Value Making in International Economic Law and Regulation: Alternative Possibilities
This book examines the contemporary production of economic value in today's financial economies. Much of the regulatory response to the global financial crisis has been based on the assumption that curbing the speculative `excesses' of the financial sphere is a necessary and sufficient condition for restoring a healthy economic system, endowed with real values, as distinct from those produced by financial markets. How, though, can the `intrinsic' value of goods and services produced in the sphere of the so-called real economy be disentangled from the `artificial' value engineered within the financial sphere? Examining current projects of international legal regulation, this book questions the regulation of the financial sphere insofar as its excesses are juxtaposed to some notion of economic normality. Given the problem of neatly distinguishing these domains - and so, more generally, between economy and society, and production and social reproduction - it considers the limits of our current conceptualization of value production and measurement, with specific reference toã arrangementsã in the areas of finance, trade and labour. Drawing on a range of innovative work in the social sciences, andã attentive to the spatial and temporal connections that make the global economy, as well as the racial, gender and class articulations of the social reproductive field within it, it further asks: what alternative arrangements might be able to affect, and indeed alter, the value-making processes that underlie our current international regulatory framework?ã

Transfer Pricing and the Arm's Length Principle After BEPS
This is the first book to present a sustained analysis and critique of arm's length based transfer pricing rules following the G20 / OECD Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) project. The book considers the nature and scope of transfer pricing rules based on the arm's length principle starting with an explanation of how the rules were created and and how they evolved over time. It provides how internationally accepted transfer pricing rules were applied immediately prior to the BEPS project, and describes the principal problems that had arisen with those rules. The issues highlighted include problems relating to the complexity of the rules, the use and availability of comparables, and, in particular, problems permitting avoidance and income shifting, including problems related to low tax entities with 'excessive capital'. Having described the pre-BEPS rules and inherent problems, the book goes on to examine the extent to which the work undertaken by the BEPs project provides a solid foundation for future transfer pricing determinations and the problems that remain after BEPS. It identifies those issues on which the BEPS output has been positive, and also those issues which BEPS has not successfully addressed and which remain problematic. This book is the most detailed and up-to-date publication on this highly topical and often controversial topic.

Art and Business: Transactions in Art and Cultural Property
This book discusses how art can affect the world of business. As art has gained greater acceptance as an investment, it is appearing in a variety of transactions that expand the traditional dealer-gallery-auction house sale form. Art transactions increasingly include many art-secured lending, securitization, and commercial transactions. The presence of art in these transactions is frequently novel to the parties involved, who may be unfamiliar with the unique issues and challenges of the art world. Insurance plays a more significant role in art transactions than it has in the past, including title insurance. Some of the topics include: *Culture (such as the Elgin Marbles) *Fakes and forgeries*Questions of titles (such as Nazi-looted art) *Restrictions on materials (such as the ban on ivory) *Forms of art-secured transactions (such as consignments and secured loans) *Express and implied warranties on art*Copyright

Real Estate Ventures addresses the difference between IRRs and preferred returns in real estate ventures. Author Stevens A. Carey explains, compares and quantifies different approaches commonly taken when formulating and interpreting how distributions are shared by a financial partner and an operating partner (when the operating partner is entitled to a promote or carried interest after a certain level of distributions) including: * The differences between IRRs and preferred returns * Allowing the promote hurdle balance to go negative when there is a surplus vs. not doing so* In effect, using continuous compounding vs. discrete compounding with simple returns between compounding* When discrete compounding is used, employing separate compounding periods for each cash flow vs. using fixed compounding periods for all cash flows * Using timing conventions, such as, assuming all cash flows occur at the beginning or end of a period Presented in a straightforward format, the book begins with background on the topic and summarizes the basic issues and concepts related to promote hurdles in four parts: * Part A: Accessible, question-and-answer presentation of the basic issues and highlights about the topic, including the differences between preferred returns and IRRs * Part B: Summary of the basic issues and concepts relating to promote hurdles, as well as a more detailed treatment of the differences between preferred returns and IRRs, a discussion of soft hurdles, and of recycling profits, one of the key potential differences between IRR and preferred return/return of capital hurdles * Part C: General background and analysis of the differences between preferred returns and IRRs * Part D: In-depth chapters address issues related to multiple IRRs and effective rates, and a practical solution to avoid multiple IRRs in the context of multiple promote hurdles

Death of a Law Firm: Staying Strong in the Global Legal Market
For decades, law firms have had one of the most successful business models around. Having weathered many storms, threats, and changes, law firms have managed to increase their profits almost without interruption over the years. As a sector, they have succeeded in growing at a faster pace than the economy in which they operate. Most partners are confident that, one way or another, this will also be the case in the future. Death of a Law Firm argues that now, for the first time in history, law firms are at an existential crossroads. Taking the wrong direction might very well lead to collapse: the death of a law firm. Dark clouds are building heavily in the sky. When the right measures are taken, it is perfectly possible not only to survive the coming storm but to come out even stronger than before. To compensate for the eroding effect of commoditization, law firms have to change their business model. However simple it might seem, changing a business model might be one bridge too far for most firms. As this book argues, the inner workings of law firm partnerships are rigged against change. In reading this book, you will gain an unprecedented insight into the psychology of the partner group--or maybe even a confronting look in the mirror. The good news is that the global legal market will continue to grow. We are not in a shrinking market. The players in the market, however, will be significantly reshuffled in the next five years, leading to the rise of some and to the death of others. Read the book and make sure your firm ends up in the right category.

Regulation and Supervision of the OTC Derivatives Market
The over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives market has captured the attention of regulators after the Global Financial Crisis due to the risk it poses to financial stability. Under the post-crisis regulatory reform the concentration of business, and risks, among a few major players is changed by the concentration of a large portion of transactions in the new market infrastructures, the Central Counterparties (CCPs). ã This book, for the first time, analyses the regulatory response of the United Kingdom and the United States, the twoã largest centres of OTC derivatives transactions, and highlights their shortcomings. The book uses a normative risk-based approach to regulation as a methodological lens to analyse the UK regime of CCPs in the OTC derivatives market. It specifically focuses on prudential supervision and conduct of business rules governing OTC derivatives transactions and the move towards enhancing the use of central clearing. The resulting analysis, from a normative risk based approach, suggests that the UK regime for CCPs does not fulfil what would be expected if a coherent risk based approach was taken. ã Our comments on the Dodd-Frank Act highlight that the incoherent adoption of risk-based approach to regulation affects the effectiveness of the US regime for CCPs. Such a regime does not follow the pace of events of `innovation risk'; in particular, the foreseeable changes FinTech will bring to the OTCDM and central clearing services. The second inadequacy of the US regime concerns the dual regulatory structure of the CFTC and the SEC, and the inadequate adoption of different and not well-coordinated regulatory strategies. We also analyse the cross-border implications of the US regime for non-US CCPs that provide clearing services to US market participants. Finally, we study the negative effects of the absence of a clearly defined resolution regime for CCPs.

Microfinance and Financial Inclusion: The Challenge of Regulating Alternative Forms of Finance
Following the recent global financial crisis there is a growing interest in alternative finance - and microfinance in particular - as new instruments for providing financial services in a socially responsible way or as an alternative to traditional banking. Nonetheless, correspondingly there is also a lack of clarity about how to regulate alternative financial methods particularly in light of the financial crisis' lessons on regulatory failure and shadow banking's risks. This book considers microfinance from a legal and regulatory perspective. Microfinance is the provision of a wide range of financial services, particularly credit but also remittances, savings, to low-income people or financially excluded. It combines a business structure with social inspiration, often resorts to technological innovations to lower costs (Fintech: e.g. crowdfunding and mobile banking) and merges with traditional local experiences (e.g. financial cooperatives and Islamic finance), this further complicating the regulatory picture. The book describes some of the unique dimensions of microfinance and the difficulties which this can cause for regulators, also through a comparative analysis of selected EU countries' regimes. The focus is in fact on the European Union legal framework, with some references to certain developing world experiences where relevant. The book assesses the impact and validity of current financial regulation principles and rules, in light of the most recent developments and trends in financial regulation in the wake of the financial crisis and compares microfinance with traditional banking. The book puts forward policy recommendations for regulators and policy makers to help address the challenges and opportunities offered by microfinance.

The Last Resort: The Financial Crisis and the Future of Bailouts
The bailouts during the recent financial crisis enraged the public. They felt unfair--and counterproductive: people who take risks must be allowed to fail. If we reward firms that make irresponsible investments, costing taxpayers billions of dollars, aren't we encouraging them to continue to act irresponsibly, setting the stage for future crises? And beyond the ethics of it was the question of whether the government even had the authority to bail out failing firms like Bear Stearns and AIG. The answer, according to Eric A. Posner, is no. The federal government freely and frequently violated the law with the bailouts--but it did so in the public interest. An understandable lack of sympathy toward Wall Street has obscured the fact that bailouts have happened throughout economic history and are unavoidable in any modern, market-based economy. And they're actually good. Contrary to popular belief, the financial system cannot operate properly unless the government stands ready to bail out banks and other firms. During the recent crisis, Posner agues, the law didn't give federal agencies sufficient power to rescue the financial system. The legal constraints were damaging, but harm was limited because the agencies--with a few exceptions--violated or improvised elaborate evasions of the law. Yet the agencies also abused their power. If illegal actions were what it took to advance the public interest, Posner argues, we ought to change the law, but we need to do so in a way that also prevents agencies from misusing their authority. In the aftermath of the crisis, confusion about what agencies did do, should have done, and were allowed to do, has prevented a clear and realistic assessment and may hamper our response to future crises. Taking up the common objections raised by both right and left, Posner argues that future bailouts will occur. Acknowledging that inevitability, we can and must look ahead and carefully assess our policy options before we need them.

This is the first comprehensive review of the Intergovernmental Committee (IGC) of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) established in 2000. It provides an in-depth consideration of the key thematic areas within WIPO discussions - genetic resources (GRs), traditional knowledge (TK) and traditional cultural expressions (TCEs) through the perspectives of a broad range of experts and stakeholders, including indigenous peoples and local communities. It also looks at how these areas have been treated in a number of forums and settings (including national systems and experiences, and also in trade agreements) and the interface with WIPO discussions. Furthermore, the book analyses the process and the negotiation dynamics since the IGC received a mandate from WIPO members, in 2009, to undertake formal text-based negotiations towards legal instruments for the protection of GR, TK and TCEs. While there has been some progress in these negotiations, important disagreements persist. If these are to be resolved, the adoption of these legal instruments would be a significant development towards resolving key gaps in the modern intellectual property system. In this regard, the book considers the future of the IGC and suggests options which could contribute towards achieving a consensual outcome.

A Practical Guide to Software Licensing for Licensees and Licensors
With intellectual property rights assuming greater importance in today's world and licensing issues and developments constantly evolving, this book is an essential resource for lawyers who need to understand software licensing. The sixth edition examines the fundamental issues that both licensors and licensees confront in the negotiation of a software license and, where appropriate, looks at relevant ancillary issues such as software development, cloud computing, professional services, and maintenance and support. It primarily focuses on non-mass market agreements, since most retail or mass market off-the-shelf software is governed by non-negotiable shrink-wrap, browse-wrap, and click-wrap licenses. Nonetheless, the principles of software licensing are the same for shrink-wrap, browse-wrap, click-wrap, and custom-developed software. Written in practical, easy-to-understand language, this book is cross-referenced to a model agreement. It is written from the perspective of both the licensor and the licensee and includes model forms with alternative clauses to fit many perspectives. New to this edition, an online website will accompany the book that includes customizable and easy-to-use forms and agreements. The sixth edition includes new chapters on: * Types of Licenses (New Chapter)* Software Development Agreements (New Chapter)* Software Development Kits and Application Program Interfaces (New Chapter)*16 New Forms* Accompanying Online Website with Model Forms and Agreements

Grain Subsidies in Ukraine: The Role of WTO Law and the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement
Grain Subsidies in Ukraine is the first attempt to examine impact of international trade law on Ukrainian policies in the cereals sector. The author focuses on instruments of state support for agricultural producers. Those are examined in their compliance with Ukraine's WTO commitments. The other central component of the book is the effect of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement on the the country's policy space. The treaty contains legal approximation provisions, which may have a farreaching impact on Ukrainian agricultural regulation. In this regard, the agreement is compared to other free trade agreements signed by Ukraine. Another focal point is the question to what extent Ukraine could make use of the EU agricultural aid practice. Although certain EU experience is found to be useful, the book generally advocates reducing distortive policies in Ukraine by substituting subsidies with market-based instruments.
