The period from 1865 to 1900 was characterized by an astronomical boom in industry and manufacturing, economic growth for the rich, financial turmoil for the poor, and political corruption. As a result, the era has been named “The Gilded Age.” Just as something gilded is gold on the outside but worthless metal on the inside, these years seemed prosperous from an outside perspective, when in reality, the wealth gap was increasing at an alarming rate and big business had power over government officials. As a result of this, a lot of federal legislation was influenced by monopolies and often catered to the desires of businessmen. Since regulation of certain business practices would cause these trusts to lose money, Congress shied away from regulating

In Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, the tale of a mad scientist is told who surpasses the limits of science and what is typically considered to be possible for man to achieve. One of the many underlying stories, though, can be seen in the monster who is created and then brought to life at the beginning of the novel. The monster’s development throughout the novel begins with initially being rejected and neglected by his creator Victor Frankenstein. The monster turns aggressive soon after and seeks revenge on Frankenstein’s family, killing off each one, one at a time.

Afterwards, another white man, Redrum, kicked the older man who responded by swinging his umbrella and hitting the big man in the face. Next, Sianturi saw a white woman strike the older man with something in her hand. By kicking the older man already on the sidewalk, Redrum committed aggravated battery. However, since according to Skittles’ testimony, Redrum helped Breeze take of her shoe, he can be charged with an aggravated assault charge. At the minimum, Clark faces simple battery since he intentionally caused harm to Clark. However, the charge may be raised to aggravated assault if intent to murder is supported by further evidence. An aggravated assault means assaulting someone with intent to murder, to rape, or to rob using a deadly weapon or with any object, device, or instrument which, when used offensively against a person, is likely to, or lead to, serious bodily injury or shooting a firearm from within a motor vehicle toward a person or people.

One of these weaknesses is the so called third party problem. In a contractual situation (for example NDA’s), where a third party has collected the secret information lawfully in good faith, the owner of the trade secret has no remedies against the third person. Furthermore, if the knowledge has somehow become public and common knowledge, anyone can use it, since it is not a secret anymore, even when the third party using the information knows that the information has been a secrecy protected originally between the two contracting parties. When trade secrets are protected by a contractual norm, the doctrine on the privity of the contract excludes the third party having rights of obligations arising from the contract. Consequently, the owner has limited legal powers towards the third party. Only in a situation where the third party knew or should have known that the contract in question is violated, the inventor may have remedies towards the third person, but this is merely an exception than a general rule.
