Access to Justice in Transnational B2c E-Commerce

In Access to Justice in Transnational B2c E-Commerce: A Multidimensional Analyze, Yuthayrin Sutatiprakarn, concludes that increasing the access to justice in transnational markets through legal instruments such as patents can increase the efficiency of trade and create competitive advantages. Specifically, this B2c book reviews the current legal landscape in Thailand and concludes that the judicial system needs to be more transparent to facilitate economic activity. Specifically, this includes the issues surrounding access to justice as it relates to workers’ compensation, patents, and licensing.

This is a B2c book as it highlights the importance of the granting of patents to encourage innovation and increase economic growth. However, some parts of the B2c book are highly technical, which makes it less suitable for a general audience. That said, it is definitely an interesting and thought provoking read. Sutatiprakarn refers to previous work in this area which is also well documented. For instance, Associate Professoressors Arun Sundaram of the Indian Institute of Technology, Mumbai and Professor Subir Chowdhry of the Indian Institute of Management, Hyderabad state, India, have jointly published a study on the impact of patents on innovation. The study was published in the Journal of Legal Studies.

Access to Justice in Transnational B2c E-Commerce: A Multidimensional Analyze provides useful suggestions to ensure the proper protection and enforcement of intellectual property rights. The chapter focuses on the deficiencies in Thailand’s patent system, which deter businesses and investors from investing in the country. The book’s overall conclusion is that access to justice requires that companies respect and protect the interests of other nations’ governments and the interests of their domestic consumers. This requires companies to invest in research and development to protect their innovations. Finally, patents should not be limited to protecting core products or technology. Still, broader patenting should include innovation as a process that creates value, promotes growth, and creates competitive advantages for all stakeholders.

In Access to Justice in Transnational B2c Economic, Saleh takes us through Amra Habib’s experiences, who are an illiterate schoolgirl from Yemen, and her quest to build a school that will use only girls’ education. She also goes on to describe the different obstacles that women face when trying to access justice. By looking closely at the different institutions contributing to the inadequate distribution of justice, Saleh shows how these institutions can be challenged through a collective effort. Through her research, she also provides a vivid account of how the conflicts that break out in conflicts zones are not isolated incidents but are symptomatic of the failures of the current justice system and the failures of various parties in talks to settle the conflicts.

Access to Justice in Transnational B2c Economic identifies four different forms of injustice that the global market provides to developing countries. The first one is discrimination based on gender, ethnicity or tribe. The second is expropriation, meaning the taking away of private property. The third is access to justice, meaning the promotion of the rule of law. The fourth is state-based policies that deny the right to access markets.

This is an excellent book and one that many people will benefit from. As part of a larger effort to improve access to justice for those deprived of it, the United Nations World Human Rights Commission has called on all countries to undertake reforms to their justice systems. Access to Justice in Transnational B2c Economic is a refreshing look at how we can better ensure justice for those who suffer at the hands of unjustly enjoying power. It is a book that one must read, and re-read, and share with others. It will make you think about how we can best ensure justice for those who need it the most, and at the bottom of every society is the lack of access to justice.
