James A. Hammerton in the “ A Critique of Libertarianism” said that not all voluntary exchanges are just as the exchanges can have consequence on third parties, who might not have consented to the exchange. It contradicts the theory from Nozick that the just transfer of goods is a voluntary transfer from the rightful owner to another person, and without mention about the third parties. In additon, as Nozick said that property right is inviolable, it means that any violations should be compensated for. But in real world that may not be the case as it will be impossible for everyone who get benefits from the government compensate to those to contribute the fund. James also believe that the operation of the free market should be come along with some social rules.
Reynolds,1711+ LANDMARK DECISION IN THE HISTORY OF LAW RESTRAINT OF TRADE: MITCHEL V. REYNOLDS In the history of law of restraint of trade, the case Mitchel V. Reynolds has been a landmark decision. Mitchel V. Reynolds is a very famous case and is a landmark decision in the history of the law of restraint of trade. This case has generally been cited in support of the principle that reasonable restraints of trade are permissible and enforceable and are not a basis for civil or criminal liability. The apparent shift began from here. The Court restated that restraints on trade were illegal, but recognized that partial restraints on trade under certain circumstances might be enforceable.
Arbitration is the leading form of international commercial dispute resolution. However, public policy may be invoked to make certain subject matter inarbitrable. This article deals with one of these putatively inarbitrable areas: intellectual property. It examines from the point of view of general policy the question of whether, and if so, to what extent, there are limits on the subject matter of intellectual property disputes that may be regulated by arbitration. In addition, it surveys the current state of the law on the arbitrability of international intellectual property disputes in a selection of countries.
Both the harm principle and legal paternalism are aimed at upholding an individual’s liberties within the law. However, they argue different view points and restrictions. The harm principle is chiefly concerned with upholding an individual’s right to somehow harm oneself, while legal paternalism says the law can interfere to prevent an individual from harming oneself. This is the most obvious distinction between the two philosophies. Dworkin’s argument for legal paternalism, however, uses Mill’s argument against him, and ultimately proves to be the stronger principle to justify law.
Legal rules allow the holders of legal right and powers to exercise them in the confidence that they are entitled to do so.

Even if the statement (2012) of Joaquin Almunia, EC Vice President and Commissioner for Competition, is trustworthy, and this investigation is not for political reasons, proving EC’s preliminary views economically is quite controversial itself. This paper, however, aims to examine the economic background of the Gazprom-case and provide with potential evidence of the company’s responsibility of anticompetitive behavior. After briefly describing the context, this study firstly explains the role of barriers to entry. Secondly, it focuses on definitions such as elasticity, market efficiency and welfare and relates them to the claimed to be “unfair” pricing. Finally, the paper introduces to the
The doctrine of Equity in English law is a mechanism implemented by the legislature to shield the weaker party in contractual relations. Nevertheless, the term good faith is enshrined in other certain types of fiduciary contracts like in Trust law, the Marine Insurance Act of 1906 and the Unfair Contract Terms Act of 1977, employment law.

Introduction The term of remoteness refers to legal test of causation that is used to determining the types of loss caused by a breach of contract or duty which may be compensated by a damages award. In another word, remoteness is a set of rules in both tort and contract, which limits the amount of compensatory damages for a wrong. We can refer to the case of Hadley v. Baxendale where Baron Sir Edward Hall Alderson had declined in allowing Hadley to recover his lost profits in this case, holding that Baxendale could only be held liable for losses that were generally foreseeable, or if Hadley had mentioned his special circumstances in advance. The application of this test: Contract v. Tort In Contract law, the test of remoteness can be
