Le principe de territorialité de la propreté intellectuelle by Nicolas Bouche

| February 24, 2017 | admin | 0

By Nicolas Bouche

L'importance croissante de los angeles propriété intellectuelle va de pair avec celle de l'immatériel dans nos sociétés et nos économies. los angeles richesse des international locations, aujourd'hui, se trouve toujours davantage dans l. a. création, l'innovation et le advertising. Les uvres littéraires et artistiques, les innovations, les obtentions végétales, le " layout ", les marques, les appellations d'origine, etc.... tous ces objets immatériels de los angeles propriété intellectuelle contribuent au développement économique, social, culturel et technologique. Or, le principe de territorialité est, depuis longtemps, une concept clé de l. a. propriété intellectuelle, tant dans le droit français que dans les droits étrangers. C'est également une proposal dont l'ambiguïté est restée massive, qu'il s'agisse de son sens, de son fondement ou de ses conséquences. C'est donc l'objet de cet ouvrage que de cerner cet " illustre inconnu " et ce, à travers ses deux acceptions les plus importantes : le " principe de territorialité de difficulty " selon lequel un droit subjectif n'a d'existence et d'effet géographiquement que sur le territoire couvert par l'ordre juridique qui l'a créé, et le " principe de territorialité de conflit de lois " selon lequel le droit foreign de los angeles propriété intellectuelle est régi par le droit du will pay pour le territoire duquel sont revendiqués l'existence et l'effet d'un droit subjectif de propriété intellectuelle.

Histoire des littératures scandinaves (Littérature by Régis Boyer

| February 24, 2017 | admin | 0

By Régis Boyer

En dépit de remarquables efforts effectués depuis quelques décennies, les littératures scandinaves continuent de faire partie de " nos belles étrangères ". Pourtant, de l'extraordinaire Moyen Age islandais (eddas, poésie scaldique, sagas) à los angeles foisonnante construction actuelle, le Nord soutient aisément los angeles comparaison avec les plus grandes littératures occidentales et s'inscrit résolument dans notre patrimoine intellectuel et artistique: Holberg, Andersen, Kierkegaard, et aussi Ibsen, Strindberg, Jacobsen, toute une floraison de Prix Nobel (Knut Hamsun, Selma Lagerlöf, Johannes V. Jensen, Pär Lagerkvist, Sigrid Undset) ou d'écrivains de most well known ordre comme Karen Blixen, Gunnar Ekelöf, Tarjei Vesaas, William Heinesen, Stig Dagerman témoignent de l'importance et de los angeles qualité de ces cultures. C'est ce que souhaite montrer le présent ouvrage qui, précisément en raison de l'incroyable richesse de l. a. matière, constitue une initiation, une ouverture, plus qu'un véritable manuel.

Partant du principe que le Nord forme un tout relativement homogène et que chaque nouveau grand écrivain, chaque courant inédit, chaque école y provoque une sorte de réaction en chaîne, l'auteur distingue de grands courants pan-scandinaves. Une chronologie, en fin de quantity, permet de situer les littératures scandinaves dans leurs grandes lignes, mais aussi dans une optique " comparatiste ".

Ouvrage de vulgarisation, de démystification, l'Histoire des littératures scandinaves n'a d'équivalent ni en Scandinavie ni en France.

Régis Boyer est professeur de langues, littératures et civilisation scandinaves à l'université de Paris-Sorbonne (Paris-IV). Il est l'auteur de nombreux ouvrages et traductions, dont, chez Fayard, L'Edda poétique (1992).
