Evaluation of Human Resources Director

A reader writes: I have a second-round interview coming up for an in-house legal position. This round of interviews is with senior management and will include the chief legal officer. My contact person is the HR manager in charge of legal recruiting. I am wondering what type of information I can request of her about the folks with whom I will interview. In other words, may I ask for bios of these people? Or LinkedIn profiles? May I ask whether she has any advice for the interviews? Or whether there are particular topics I should be prepared to address? Those last two feel unprofessional…

Hoffmann Eitle For some years the European Commission has been drafting a new “Regulation Concerning Customs Enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights” replacing present Regulation EC/1383/2003. It now appears that legislative procedure is almost complete. The Internal Market Committee of the European Parliament and the Permanent Representatives Committee of the Council have recently adopted a compromise text. After the Council of Ministers adopts the text, the European Parliament will most likely also adopt it in March without amendments and the new Regulation can then come…

Bowman v. Monsanto Co., scheduled for oral argument Tuesday, presents a high-stakes question about biotech products: how tightly can Monsanto control what users do with the Roundup-resistant soybean seeds that Monsanto has patented? Although the practical ramifications are substantial, the doctrinal question is quite elegant.  Like Kirtsaeng v. John Wiley & Sons, argued during the November sitting, the case involves the “exhaustion” of intellectual property.  Generally speaking, it is usually the case that when an owner of intellectual property sells a specific tangible…

Definition of Human Capital Services

I consider myself, for better or worse, a man who values words and their meaning…so, as a former HR executive I take a certain umbrage vs. the term “Human Capital.”  The origins of the term go back to the 1950′s, and has been alternately praised and criticized, yet we are seeing the term enjoy a re-birth in the 21st Century.  The term was meant to encourage an investment into the growth of individuals to build their respective value rather than continued investment into materials/goods/brick & mortar.  Ask 10 people on the street about the definition of “Human Capital”…

The problem noted in the previous post on how to measure productivity in the internet age is just one example of the problems with measuring most aspects of the economy in the, so-called, knowledge economy. This is a problem that I have written a little on. There is a section on this problem, called Mr Bean(counter) measures the economy , in Oxley, Walker, Thorns and Wang (2008). It is written, Much time and effort is expended by many national and international organisations in an attempt to measure the economy or economies of the world.

Definition of Goodwill Financial

When meeting business owners, evaluating their financial statements and suggesting an asking prices for their companies, I am frequently faced with a big astonishment appearing on the owners’ faces. For some companies, the asking price I suggest is very close to the net book value of  the assets. Business owners are understandably surprised to hear that all the hard work they have put on their businesses for so many years has no value at all. What about the reputation, the customer lists, the relationships,  the employees, the know-how, the brand name, the experience and all…

If not, why not? You could save yourself a shed load of hassle down the line if you do. If you’re an artist, web designer, writer, or blogger (or pretty much anyone else working in the creative field), you’re likely to be fully aware of the benefits of copyright. Generally it protects what is termed as an “original work of authorship” – roughly translated as including books, poems, songs, web pages, and other original works. Copyright protection is considered to be automatic in that the author creates the copyright in the act of creating the work. As such, copyright does not…
