            The arrival of the Internet was revolutionary, and one of the most tumultuous developments that flowed from it--the upending of the relatively settled world of copyright law--has forced us to rethink how rights to a work are allocated and how delivery formats affect an originator...'s claims to the work.

            Family Trusts - Revised and Updated: The Must-Have New Zealand Guide (Trade Paperback / Paperback, Revised and Updated)

            In 2021, The Trusts Act 2019 comes into force. This is the first major trust law reform in New Zealand in 70 years. Many of the key changes are aimed at making trust law more accessible to both lawyers and the public, strengthening the ability of beneficiaries to hold trustees to... account. Anyone involved in a family trust will need to find out about the changes introduced by this new Act. Many will choose to wind up the trust, and those that keep them will need to change how they manage them, so this book is an essential tool. A family trust offers you the benefits, use and control of your assets. Clear and straight-forward, and aimed at the layperson, Family Trusts includes up-to-date advice by New Zealand's leading financial writer, with real-life examples and answers to commonly asked questions throughout. This book has sold well over 120,000 copies since it was first published and is an essential book for anyone curious about family trusts or involved with a trust. 'In my experience, 75 per cent of family trusts in New Zealand are so badly arranged or managed that they could easily be attacked and overturned in court... managing a trust badly is a bit like insuring the contents of your house but then going on holiday and leaving the doors wide open,' says Martin Hawes. This is the one book anyone involved with a family trust should own.

            The 1877 legal case Wi Parata v Bishop of Wellington centred on the ownership and use of the Whitireia Block, near Porirua. In refusing to inquire into ownership of the block, the Supreme Court judges dismissed the relevance of the Treaty of Waitangi: So far indeed as that instru...ment purported to cede the sovereignty - a matter with which we are not directly concerned - it must be regarded as a simple nullity. Over the past 25 years, this simple nullity view of the Treaty has been castigated and the infamous case seen as symbolic of the neglect of Maori rights. Now, David V Williams takes a fresh look at the case, affording new insights into both Maori-Pakeha relations in the nineteenth century and the legal position of the Treaty. Behind the apparent dismissal of the Treaty as a simple nullity lay deep arguments about the place of Maori and Pakeha in Aotearoa New Zealand, which are as relevant now as they were then.

Written by OHS legal expert Michael Tooma, the second edition ofDue Diligence: Duty of Officers is an officeras answer to any of their duty questions.KEY FEATURESChapter 1 provides an overview of the duty.Chapter 2 explores the question of aoewho is an officera.Chapters 3a"8 deal with each element of the due diligence definition.Chapter 9 deals with the liabilities arising from breaches of the due diligence duty and explores practical recommendations for compliance by categories of officers such as directors, company secretaries, chief financial officers, human resources directors, general counsel and operations management.Oxford University Press Australia & New Zealand is the non-exclusive distributor of this title.
