Worldwide, anti-money laundering regulations and legislation have become one of the weapons of choice of governments that are fighting global terrorism and criminality. In this updated edition of Money Laundering, Doug Hopton explains how The Money Laundering Regulations 2007 have extended even further the range of UK businesses covered by the Proceeds of Crime Act to include solicitors, lawyers, accountants, estate agents, high value dealers, trust or company service providers and, in effect, many other companies involved in consultancy or business services. The complexity of the new laws and the limited amount of any case law asks more questions about the responsibilities of these companies and their liabilities. Doug Hopton's highly practical guide explains the basis of international law, regulations and standards in this area and how they affect businesses; and provides down-to-earth advice on the basic rules of good business management: customer due diligence, know your business (and your client's business), which will help companies understand what procedures to establish, and how and when to report suspicious activity. The author explains the basis of money laundering and how it works, along with the development of the law and regulations around the world, and how other countries' laws can affect UK companies.

Concise IP Series Volume 5 Concise European Trade Mark and Design Law aims to offer a rapid understanding of the provisions of trademark and design law in force in the European Union (EU). In an increasingly globalized and diversified marketplace, the importance of brands and their effective legal protection across country borders and regions is ever growing. In the past twenty years, trademarks and designs have become truly European. The expansion of the EU, from fifteen Member States in 1996 to twenty-eight at present, has triggered further discussion of pan-European trademark and design protection, its requirements and limitations, and even twenty years of case law of the Court of Justice of the EU have left - or in fact opened - many questions on the interpretation of the law. This book, one of the series of volumes of commentaries on European intellectual property legislation, provides information on the judgments of the relevant case law of the EU and also incorporates new case law since the publication of its first edition. What's in this book: This book presents topics on important legislations such as: Council Regulation (EC) No. 207/2009 as amended by Regulation (EU) 2015/2424 (EU Trade Mark Regulation); Directive (EU) 2015/2436 of the European Parliament and of the Council (Trade Mark Directive); Council Regulation (EC) No. 6/2002 (Community Design Regulation); and Directive 98/71/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (Design Directive). This book takes the form of an article-by-article commentary on the relevant regulations and other legal instruments. In order to keep the commentaries clear, they are in a form that is as brief as the subject matter allows, and the citations presented include only the relevant point of law. The editors and authors are prominent specialists (academics and practitioners) in European and international trademark and design law. How this will help you: As a short and straightforward explanation of the principles of law drawn from each legislation, this book enables the reader to gain a rapid appreciation of the meaning and effect of the provision of law of interest and thereafter and be in a position to look in the right direction for further information needed. The case laws covered in this volume prove to be of great practical value to lawyers, practitioners and academicians, who are involved in enacting laws, for future references. Concise European Trade Mark and Design Law is one of a series of volumes of commentaries on European intellectual property legislation edited by Thomas Dreier, Charles Gielen and Richard Hacon, based on the respected German and Dutch series 'Kurzkommentar' and 'Tekst en Commentaar'.

Der preisgekrönte Autor und passionierte Angler Paul Greenberg nimmt uns mit auf eine Reise über die Flüsse und Meere dieser Welt und erzählt die Geschichte jener vier Fischarten, die mittlerweile überall die Speisekarten beherrschen: Lachs, Barsch, Kabeljau und Thunfisch. Er besucht norwegische Großfarmen, die jährlich 500 000 Tonnen Lachs produzieren - mit Hilfe genetischer Techniken, die ursprünglich bei der Schafzucht zum Einsatz kamen. In Alaska besichtigt er die einzige Fair-Trade-Fischerei der Welt. Er erklärt, warum die Meerestiere zunehmend mit Quecksilber und anderen Schadstoffen belastet sind, und schildert, wie der Mittelmeerbarsch zu einer global nachgefragten Ware werden konnte. Greenberg stellt viele der Fragen, die immer mehr Menschen beim Anblick einer Speisekarte oder der Tiefkühltruhe unseres Supermarkts beschäftigen: Was ist der Unterschied zwischen Wild-, Zucht- und Biofisch? Welchen Fisch können wir bedenkenlos essen? Was bedeutet Überfischung eigentlich? Lassen sich Fische wirklich domestizieren wie andere Tiere auch, oder sollten wir generell aufhören, Fisch zu essen? Fische, so Greenbergs Fazit, sind unser letztes wirklich ?wildes Nahrungsmittel. Womöglich nicht mehr lange. Nur wenn wir besser verstehen, unter welchen Bedingungen und um welchen Preis Fisch auf unseren Tellern landet, werden wir dem Lebensraum - und der Nahrungsquelle - Meer mit neuer, dringend gebotener Achtung begegnen.

Whether you are a supervisor, a business owner, or an HR professional, it is essential that you understand the laws and rules governing how one treats employees and interacts with unions. In a comprehensive and accessible format, Labor Law: A Basic Guide to the National Labor Relations Act provides a practice-oriented foundation on labor law. The book sheds light on one of America's most important laws and one which is also, perhaps, the most misunderstood. This book presents an overview of labor and employment laws such that managers may understand their rights as employers as well and their employees' rights. It covers an introduction to the topic of labor and employment law as well as a brief history within the United States. Other chapters deal with unions and union relations, collective bargaining agreements, grievances, labor arbitration, unfair labor practice proceedings, and strikes and lockouts. The author does not focus on complex regulations and convoluted case law, but distills them to reveal the essence of the NLRA and how it works. As important as it is, at times labor law can seem counter-intuitive. Written by a highly experienced labor lawyer, this book contains concise explanations in an easy-to-use format. Clearly delineating a process that can be fraught with traps for the unwary, it supplies a quick reference that can be used in a crisis situation to understand the parameters of what you can and cannot do.
