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'.

Environmental Law for Biologists

Environmental law has an unquestionable effect on the species, ecosystems, and landscapes that biologists study—and vice-versa, as the research of these biologists frequently informs policy. But because many scientists receive little or no legal training, we know relatively little about the precise ways that laws affect biological systems—and, consequently, about how best to improve these laws and better protect our natural resources. With Environmental Law for Biologists, ecologist and lawyer Tristan Kimbrell bridges this gap in legal knowledge. Complete with a concise introduction to environmental law and an appendix describing the most important federal and international statutes and treaties discussed, the book is divided into four broad parts: laws that focus on individual species, like invasive species policies, the Endangered Species Act, and international treaties such as CITES; laws that focus on land, from federal public lands to agricultural regulations and urban planning; laws that focus on water, such as the Clean Water Act; and laws that focus on air, such as the Clean Air Act and international measures meant to mitigate global climate change. Written for working biologists and students alike, this book will be a catalyst for both more effective policy and enhanced research, offering hope for the manifold frictions between science and the law.
