Rank #4: New Technology and Warfare: A Conversation with John Yoo

Podcast cover
Read more
In 2005, the U.S. and Israel allegedly used a computer virus (Stuxnet) to hobble the Iranian nuclear program. The U.S. is believed to operate over 7,362 unmanned aerial systems (UAVs). Many decry Russia’s “weaponization” of the internet and social media to interfere with elections. What’s in store for the future of technology and warfare? How do these weapons change how we think about the costs and benefits of military intervention?

Professor John Yoo recently co-authored a new book: Striking Power: How Cyber, Robots, and Space Weapons Change the Rules for War. The book explores how these new weapons change the rules of warfare. Professor Yoo notes that these weapons may become a better solution than other alternatives because new weapons can be more effective and minimize harm. Professor Yoo is currently the Emanuel S. Heller Professor of Law at the University of California, Berkeley. He was also appointed as the Deputy Assistant U.S. Attorney General during the Bush Administration.

Rank #6: Digital Exhaustion

Podcast cover
Read more
When someone purchases a book they have an immediate understanding of what they can do with it. They can loan it, toss it, or resell it. When someone purchases digital media, many are surprised to find out that the same rights don’t apply. Trends in the technology and media landscape have elevated the use of licenses in lieu of outright ownership. What are courts to do when consumers and providers lock horns on this issue? Should courts endorse a concept of digital exhaustion and allow consumers to resell copies of digital works without a need for permission from the copyright owner? Or is that not what the seller bargained for? Lothar Determann, a Berkeley Law professor and Baker & McKenzie partner suggests that the old world may provide solutions. Tony Bedel and Christian Chessman sit down with Lothar to discuss his forthcoming BTLJ article, Digital Exhaustion – New Law from the Old World. We thank Chante Westmoreland and Miranda Rutherford for production help on the episode.
