Not long ago, I blogged about the concept of predatory marriage. This phrase refers to a marriage in which a vulnerable person is being taken advantage of, usually for his or her money. It happens more than people perhaps realize, given that there are a lot of seniors out there who are alone and vulnerable to this kind of scam. Also recently, www.thestar.com carried a story about a predatory [read post]

A 42-year-old man has been arrested after being identified as the possible perpetrator of stealing personal property from inside of classrooms at three different Orange County schools. On January 11, a teacher at Irvine Baptist Church noticed that her wallet was missing from her purse, which she had left inside of an unoccupied classroom. She reported that her wallet contained money, her driver’s license, and a bank card.

On Friday the U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals heard oral arguments (audio of full arguments) in Adorers of the Blood of  Christ v. FERC.  In the case, a Pennsylvania federal district court dismissed for lack of jurisdiction a RFRA challenge by a Catholic order of nuns to the construction and operation of the Atlantic Sunrise gas pipeline through land owned by the order. (See prior posting.)  At issue is whether the nuns should have used procedures set out in the Natural Gas Act to raise their objections. NPR reports on the oral arguments. [read post]

In my previous article, I argued that existing (and foreseeable) artificial intelligence (AI) or machine learning (ML) systems do not exhibit creativity or inventiveness, and are incapable of anything that could reasonably be described as ‘invention’.  I acknowledged, however, that some such systems have generated results that may qualify as patentable inventions.  I therefore concluded with a question: if computers cannot invent, and yet the outcome of running a computer program can be an invention, then who – if anyone – is the inventor? In… [read post]

Vassilis P. Tzevelekos (Univ. of Liverpool - Law) & Elena Katselli (Newcastle Univ. - Law) have posted Migrants at Sea: A Duty of Plural States to Protect (Extraterritorially)? (Nordic Journal of International Law, Vol. 86, pp. 427-469, 2017). Here's the abstract: Although migration is a transnational phenomenon involving a plurality of states, the state of departure is often unwilling/unable to offer protection. Receiving/transit states can refrain from engaging with the problem until migrants have already entered their territory. With high seas, this can result in the deaths of… [read post]
