But when does concealment constitute as deception? Withholding information intentionally in order to mislead the other party is unethical because they might have chosen differently if they knew all the information (Provis, 2000). Along with withholding information, being vague with information can have a negative impact on the possible alliance and could increase conflict with misunderstanding. Often one’s vagueness fosters growth that are good for their self-interests, but could be harmful when used to promote products or achieve a goal. On the other hand, using vague language can enhance flexibility during negotiations.
Gun Control War We are no stranger to gun control debate and controversy here in the U.S. We hear of gun deaths, mass and school shootings on the news on a daily basis. Is it safe to say that the U.S. needs permanent gun control laws to protect its citizens or would it be in violation the constitution? The second amendment was written by our founding fathers back in 1791 in a day where it was common for any citizen to own a weapon. Many times we tend to misinterpret our rights as well as we do with gun control laws. As George Washington once said “A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined”.
Legislative Proposal for New Indecency Language in Telecom Bill I. Summary Although the October 16, 1995 legislative proposal purports to regulate “ computer pornography”, the proposal contains fatal flaws which render the proposal at best counterproductive and at worst devastating to on-line communications. First, it prohibits, but fails to define, “indecent” speech to minors -- a dangerously vague, medium-specific, and, after decades of litigation, still undefined concept, which may include mere profanity. This may tie up successful prosecution of the law in courts for years to come, while courts wrestle to divine a constitutional definition of “indecent” -- and while companies are left with uncertain liability. Second, the October 16 proposal may actually hold systems liable for communications over which they have no specific knowledge or control.
When you anticipate the failure of one of your projects, do you start telling people why it will fail? You are setting up your defenses in advance so you will not have to create them after the fact. Advance defensiveness can even facilitate failure. Some people will even sabotage their own projects, when they start to think they will fail, if they can do so in a way that ensures their getting off the hook. Recognizing and avoiding your own excessive defensiveness is not easy if you have developed a pattern of protecting a fragile self esteem in this way.
While the DVRs may not seem much different from VCRs, they are causing lawmakers to look at past copyright cases all over again in a new light and also are managing to wreak havoc on past fair-use and privacy precedents. This paper explores the ethical and privacy considerations with regard to DVRs and how small increments in technology can generate a large amount of controversy. In the late 1970s, Sony introduced a technology called a videocassette recorder (VCR) to the American public. The product was revolutionary because before its introduction, recording television programs for the average consumer was impossible. The new device created a large amount of controversy.
In some instances, witnesses are believed despite their little mistakes about the same facts. Jury decisions turn on an obscure point either overlooked or understated in the case all because of an insufficient or incomplete understanding of non-verbal communication. In the diverse world of lawyers, the unreliability of the spoken word plays out in cases that are won and lost, which ultimately has an effect on the decision making to the trial judge or jury. Second, the non-verbal language would greatly benefit international lawyers. Understanding the non-verbal language prepares international lawyers who have to litigate in other countries.
Although these concepts were good America made some changes. Lawyers only worked for the government,but America changed it for the people to have some type of representation in court. In the past hundred years law has advanced in many different areas.Law has innovated in areas such as,technology,new practices of law,and collaboration. One innovation that created success for attorneys was technology. The first technological advance was online documentation.
Philosophy 324 Case 9 Is a good lawyer just considered good if they keep their confidences with their clients and win their cases? Or is their more to a good lawyer? I think there should be much more. Lawyers should be obligated to doing the morally right action even if it means losing the case. This is what the moral agent concept suggests.
The decision in Lipkin Gorman simply provides a general explanation and principle of the defen... ... middle of paper ... ...traordinary , but the vagueness of the term can lead to confusion. All the defendant needs to show that the expenses are extraordinary to him is that he would not have otherwise have incurred those expenses. In this sense, the defence seems very effectual in protecting defendants from hardship. In conclusion, it is fair to say that the defence of change of position is effective in protecting defendant from hardship especially in comparison with other defences such as common law estoppel. And the disqualifications for the defence, like bad faith, illegality and civil wrongdoing, are also reasonable and just.
Technological revolutions are the process of one technology being replaced by another. For those in power that rely heavily on technology (as historically an increasing number have), the only available options are to adapt to the new technology, or lose their power. This can be seen in many places and in many times, ranging from mid-14th century Europe to modern day America. Technological changes are directly responsible for changes of power and often come in the form of two revolutions: a technological change and the public acceptance of it. An exemplar of these changes was when firearms first made... ... middle of paper ... ...e likely their technology, and power, would remain intact.
