Taxing Robots

Helping the Economy to Adapt to the Use of Artificial Intelligence

Xavier Oberson

The increasing use of artificial intelligence within the workplace is likely to cause significant disruption to the labour market and in turn, to the economy, due to a reduction in the number of taxable workers. In this innovative book, Xavier Oberson proposes taxing robots as a possible solution to the anticipated problem of declining tax revenues.

This is the beginning, rather than the end. The addition of new generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs) to the Internet Domain Name System (DNS) has significantly increased the number of existing TLDs available to registrants. Although there is no prospect that new gTLDs will significantly affect the dominance of <.com>, they provide an additional supply of available names for registrants. These new names will remain with the Internet for as long as domain names are relevant. In this sense, the programme has changed the DNS. The programme has also contributed significantly to changes in the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), and it has led to the creation of a rather extensive framework of transnational private regulation, which is applied in a quasi-judicial system. In my view, it would be useful to develop ICANN’s many dispute-resolution policies and independent review into a more elaborate arbitration system that can fulfil the need for a quasi-judicial system, to support the fair and consistent adjudication of cases under ICANN’s transnational private regulation.

Generic Top-Level Domains

A Study of Transnational Private Regulation

Tobias Mahler

This topical book examines the regulatory framework for introducing generic Top-Level Domains on the Internet. Drawn up by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), these rules form part of a growing body of transnational private regulation, complementing national and international law. The book elucidates and discusses how ICANN has tackled a diverse set of economic and regulatory issues, including competition, consumer protection, property rights, procedural fairness, and the resolution of disputes.

This book explores the challenges that emerging technologies and technology driven practices pose for traditional notions of intellectual property (IP) law and policy. Chapters offer perspectives from across the IP law spectrum and address questions such as; is the law evolving in the right direction and is the regulation of emerging technology supported by sound policy objectives? Covering a diverse range of topics, this book exposes the intimate relationship between IP and technology.

The emergence of China’s indigenous standards has raised concerns within the trade community. Focusing on the compatibility of such Chinese-made standards with the WTO laws, existing legal literature seem to see China’s indigenous standards as being oriented towards ‘techno-nationalism’, thereby posing a credible threat to international economic order. By revisiting the case of the WAPI, one of the most (in)famous Chinese indigenous standards in the information and communication technology (ICT) industry, this chapter contends that the threat of China’s indigenous standards policy to the global trading system may be less serious than some had thought because of the contextual factors and new rules introduced through trade and investment laws in the era of megaregionalism.
