Lawyers convinced of Michael's innocence sought appeal after appeal and were blocked repeatedly by a court system reluctant to admit their errors. Michael meanwhile dealt with the torments of prison, matched only by the torment of slowly losing hope of ever reconciling with his son.What began with the tragedy of losing his wife and what could have led to bitter vindication became the story of man seeking nothing more than the truth and a chance to start over. 1.

In partnership with Texas Monthly, Michael Hall's "The Trouble with Innocence" is now available as an audio download, where the length and timeliness of a podcast meets the high-quality production of a full-length audio program. In 1978, a Texas jury found Kerry Max Cook guilty of the state's most brutal murder on record and sentenced him to death row. Cook swore that, no matter how long it took, he would prove his innocence, unearth the truth, and free himself from this sentence. Spanning decades, numerous lawyers, and meanwhile the physical and psychological abuse of prison, Cook would be prosecuted four times, only to have the veil of innocence narrowly evade him in the end. "The Trouble with Innocence" opens with the hearing that would exonerate Cook nearly 40 years after his original sentence. Exoneration, after all he had been through, was not enough for Cook, who then asked for his wrongful conviction back rather than live with this injustice. Michael Hall lays out Cook's grueling journey through the Texas justice and prison system in an attempt to answer: how could someone sabotage their own exoneration? 1. Language: English.

China's protection of intellectual property is one of the key concerns of foreign companies doing business in the Chinese media industry. This Intellectual Property guide analyzes the recent development of China's young, but increasingly comprehensive, intellectual property regime, with a focus on copyright protection for various types of media works. Key issues addressed include registration procedures, types of works that can be protected, scope of rights, enforcement of rights and infringement penalties. This guide includes the full text of key regulations in English, as translated by TransAsia Lawyers. Written by experienced lawyers with over two decades of experience and endorsed by Chinese government officials, this guide is a vital-source for firms and individuals interested in the development of intellectual property in China. The international media and entertainment industry has been able to flourish under the legal protections conferred by copyright and other intellectual property rights. In contrast, the concept of intellectual property was foreign to China's domestic industries until the 1990s. China's intellectual property protection regime is modeled in part on international treaties and foreign legislation, and yet is tailored to address China's unique culture and political structure. With the rapid development of domestic creative industries, the logical and ideal expectation is that the degree of copyright law enforcement will increase in order to safeguard the interests of copyright owners in China, both foreign and Chinese alike. However, the piracy rate for DVDs, CDs and other audiovisual products in China remains high; and pirated music and movies are endemic on the Internet. While the Chinese government has done a commendable job putting the foundations for a robust intellectual property regime in place, the actual enforcement of intellectual property legislation remains a concern. This guide provides analysis on the copyright legislations and the types of rights protected (such as authors, broadcasters, performers, producers, collective rights management and the internet), the exceptions to those rights, copyright ownership and transfer, and unprotected subject matters. Intellectual Property is part of the China's Media & Entertainment Law series, the first and only authoritative guide on the media and entertainment industry in China. The series is endorsed by China's State Administration of Radio, Film & Television, and supported by the State Administration for Industry & Commerce, the General Administration of Press & Publication and the PRC Ministry of Culture. This guide includes an online access to download the original Chinese texts of key regulations, along with additional content such as updated regulations, TransAsia news flashes and translations of PRC government policies.
