6. Прочитайте текст и определите, являются правдивыми или ложными следующие
The marriage of intellectual property (IP) and life sciences creates one of those niche practices
of law that most solicitors like to avoid. But two events recently brought home the importance of
this area of law.
First, the recommendation by the UK Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority to permit
human cloning for 'spare parts' is likely to create a huge wave of research leading to a flood of
patent registrations and subsequent litigation.
Elsewhere in the market, the pharmaceutical companies Zeneca and Astra were deep in talks
about a merger. Both face the imminent end of the patent on several drugs, and need more
resources to plug the gaps. Patents are probably these companies' most important single
resource and the big pharmaceutical companies and life sciences firms jealously guard them.

Smaller research-based companies are not always so alert to the dangers and opportunities of
patent law. A recent report, commissioned by Taylor Joynsen Garrett from the London Business
School, says: 'There is evidence of a surprising lack of recognition of the importance of IP
protection.' Almost a third of companies think their investors 'understand little' or 'not at all' the
nature of their IP rights.
      Only two-thirds of companies said that when it came to IP, due diligence had been
undertaken by their investors where it was relevant before financing their most recent
The report is a wake-up call to smaller research-based companies to take the legal implications
of their work seriously. While there are bound to be ethical debates about the right to make
money out of this kind of activity, there is no question that larger companies will have little
hesitation in capitalizing on discoveries not properly protected. Experts believe that we are only
starting to scratch the surface of developments in this field. How it turns out will be shaped as
much by the application of the law as by the inventiveness of scientists. And though the
Biotechnology Directive excludes human cloning processes from patentability, commercial
companies will not stop doing the work, nor stop generating complex and puzzling legal issues.
1)    Solicitors like very technical and specialized areas of law.
2)    It is legal to clone humans for spare parts at present in the UK.
3)    Patents protect the formulae of drugs forever.
4)    Patent law is well understood by most small research companies in the UK.
5)    Big companies are likely to take advantage of poorly protected discoveries.
6)    The inventiveness of scientists will have to be matched by the changes in the law.

      New York used to be the city that never sleeps. These days it's the city that never smokes,
drinks or does anything naughty (at least, not in public). The Big Apple is quickly turning into
the Forbidden Apple.
      If you wanted a glass of wine with your picnic in Central Park, could you have one? No
chance. Drinking alcohol in public isn't allowed. If you decided to feed the birds with the last
crumbs of your sandwich, you could be arrested. It's illegal. If you went to a bar for a drink and a
cigarette, that would be OK, wouldn't it? Er ... no. You can't smoke in public in New York City.
      What's going on? Why is the city that used to be so open-minded becoming like this? The
mayor of New York is behind it all. He has brought in a whole lot of new laws to stop citizens
from doing what they want, when they want. The press are scandalised. Even the New York
police have joined the argument. They recently spent $100,000 on a “Don't blame the cop”
campaign. One New York police officer said, 'We raise money for the city by giving people fines
for breaking some very stupid laws. It's all about money.'
      The result is a lot of fines for minor offences. Yoav Kashida, an Israeli tourist, fell asleep
on the subway. When he woke up, two police officers fined him because he had fallen asleep on
two seats (you mustn't use two seats in the subway). Elle and Serge Schroitman were fined for
blocking a driveway with their car. It was their own driveway.

      The angry editor of Vanity Fair magazine, Gray don Carter, says, 'Under New York City law
it is acceptable to keep a gun in your place of work, but not an empty ashtray.' He should know.
The police came to his office and took away his ashtray.
      But not all of New York's inhabitants are complaining. Marcia Dugarry, 72, said, 'The city
has changed for the better. If more cities had these laws, America would be a better place to live.'
Nixon Patotkis, 38, a barman, said, 'I like the new laws. If people smoked in here, we'd go home
smelling of cigarettes.'
      Recent figures show that New York now has fewer crimes per 100,000 people than 193
other US cities. And it's true - it's safer, cleaner and more healthy than before. But let's be
honest - who goes to New York for its clean streets?
1.    Some activities have recently become illegal in New York.
2.    Most of the new laws were introduced by the mayor of New York.
3.    The police like the new laws.
4.    Minor offences are not fined.
5.    Still a part of New Yorkers are happy because of the new laws.
6.    Statistics show that there has been in increase in the number of crimes in New York.

    defendant's breach of 3___ cost the plaintiff $50, such court could order the defendant to pay
    that sum to the plaintiff. These damages were sufficient in many instances, but not in others,
    such as a contract for sale of a rare artwork or a specific parcel of land. During the 13th and 14th
    centuries, "courts of 4___were formed. These tribunals fashioned equitable remedies like
    specific 5___, which compelled parties to perform their obligations, rather than to merely
    forcing them to pay damages for the injury caused by their nonperformance. By the 19th
    century, most American 6___ had eliminated the distinction between law and equity. Today
    with rare exceptions, U.S. courts can award either legal or equitable remedies as the situation

          The British judicial branch is very complex and is composed of dozens of different courts
    of jurisdiction with grandiose names like the “Queen's Bench”, the “Chancery Division” and the
    “Crown Court”. Depending on which branch the judge belongs to, he could wear one of many
    different costumes. Unlike many other countries which limit their judges to wearing only red or
    black, in Britain judges wear almost every color. There are judges with blue robes, green robes,
    and even purple and pink ones.
          There are several constants, however. All upper court justices in Britain wear the famous
    “full bottomed” powered wigs while lower court judges wear the shorter "barrister" wig. This is a
    holdover from the time when judges were members of the aristocracy, and it was considered
    fashionable for important people to show off their social status by wearing long flowing wigs.
    Once a year there is a special ceremony in Westminster Abbey during which all of the nation's
Gief.ru                       Кафедра иностранных языков

judges assemble to commemorate the start of the legal year. On formal occasions such as that,
all judges wear “full bottomed” wigs.
      Most British judges also wear a special stiff white "cross" collar. The exact origins of this
collar are obscure, but some have speculated it was supposed to represent the twin tablets of the
Ten Commandments that were carried by Moses. The same collar is worn by high-ranking clergy
within the Anglican church, so it clearly has some form of religious origins.
      Britain’s highest-ranking judicial official, and de facto Chief Justice is the Lord Chancellor.
He wears a special gold and black robe, or at least he used to.
1)    In Britain judges wear formal costumes of different colors.
2)    Judges are free in their choice of wigs.
3)    Once a year all judges wear “full bottomed” wigs.
4)    The length of the wig shows how important a judge is.
5)    There are some similar traits in the judge's costume and the clergy's garment.
6)    The costume of the highest- ranking official used to differ from upper and lower courts
judges' costumes.

     State securities regulators around the US are concerned about the explosion in illicit
investment schemes now flourishing on commercial bulletin board services and the informal
web of computer networks that make up the Internet. Households that already have access to
online services are being exposed to hundreds of fraudulent and abusive investment schemes
including stock manipulations, pyramid scams and Ponzi schemes.
     Cyberspace, as the online world is known, has the potential to educate investors and help
them become better consumers. Any computer and modem is a few keystrokes away from
research data and financial news. However, State securities regulators emphasise that the
problem of illicit and abusive online investment schemes has the potential to spread like wildfire
through the Internet, using increasingly popular commercial bulletin board services, live
discussion groups (chats), e-mail, and information web pages, all of which can maintain the
Gief.ru                       Кафедра иностранных языков

anonymity of cyberspace. This is exploited to the hilt by those who promote fraudulent
investment schemes.
      New frauds are emerging, too. According to Internet Fraud Watch, complaints about fraud
on the Internet have risen 600% since 1997, and online auction complaints were the number
one fraud complaint only one year later, a dramatic rise. The majority of payments in these
fraud cases were made offline, by cheque or money order sent to the company. 'Requesting cash
is a clear sign of fraud. Pay the safest way. If possible, pay by credit card because you can dispute
the charges if there is a problem,' says the Director of Internet Fraud Watch. IFW recommends
that buyers use escrow services: they take payment from the buyers and only pass money along
to the sellers after verification that the goods or services were satisfactory. Some auction
companies have programmes to insure transactions.
1.    The number of fraud cases in the Internet has decreased over the last few years.
2.    Anonymity is important for criminals, committing cyberspace fraud.
3.    Households get exposed to fraudulent schemes if they use online services.
4.    The majority of payments in the fraud cases were made online.
5.    If you are a victim of a scam on the Internet, you can inform IFW.
6.    An escrow service is a safe way of paying for Internet transactions.
