    Abstract : This thesis contributes to the knowledge of how computer-mediated communication and information sharing works in large groups and networks. In more detail, the research question put forward is: in large sharing networks, what concerns do end-users have regarding to whom to provide material? A theoretical framework of gift-giving was applied to identify, label and classify qualitative end-user concerns with provision. READ MORE

  2. 2. Metaphors and Norms - Understanding Copyright Law in a Digital Society

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Stefan Larsson; [2011]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; IPRED; copyright; file sharing; conceptual metaphor theory; path dependence; skeumorphs; conceptions; Norms; metaphors; InfoSoc; online anonymity; digital society.;

    Abstract : This is a compilation thesis in the sociology of law, which analyses copyright law in three steps; the legal norms, the social norms and the underlying conceptions in their metaphorical representation. These three steps assist in answering the overarching question: "How do legal and social norms relate to each other in terms of the conceptions from which they emanate or by which they are constructed, and what is the role played by the explicit metaphors that express these norms?" The thesis shows how the development of copyright in Europe, when faced with the digital challenge, has been resiliently path dependent (Infosoc, IPRED and more). READ MORE

  3. 3. Essays on the Transmission of Human Capital and the Impact of Technological Change

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Uppsala universitet

    Author : Adrian Adermon; Mikael Lindahl; Magnus Gustavsson; Markus Jäntti; [2013]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; education; intergenerational mobility; sibling correlations; natural experiment; copyright; music; movies; file sharing; piracy; inequality; job polarization; task-biased technological change; Economics; Nationalekonomi;

    Abstract : Essay 1: If grandparents have an independent impact on their grandchildren's schooling, intergenerational correlations estimated using two generations will underestimate the true level of intergenerational persistence in education. Recent research has found such multi-generational effects, but there is still no consensus on whether these estimates are due to a direct impact of grandparents on their grandchildren, or if they arise because of measurement error or model misspecification.

    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; differential privacy; function secret sharing; homomorphic secret sharing; verifiable computation; privacy-preservation; public verifiability;

    Abstract : In many application scenarios, data need to be collected, stored and processed. Often sensitive data are collected from IoT devices, which are constrained regarding their resources, and, thus, remote, untrusted cloud servers are required to perform the computations. READ MORE
