Scholarly Articles about the Law written by Terik Hashmi

These are some of the legal commentaries written and published by lawyer Terik Hashmi. 


AVIATION


U.S. and Japan conclude civil aviation agreement to open Japanese market to U.S. carriers 


On January 31, 1998, the U.S. and Japan concluded an aviation agreement which provides a new frame for the 1952 Civil Air Transport Agreement between the two countries.


The carriers of "incumbent" Japan routes and all-cargo carriers (deriving their rights from the 1952 Agreement, here: United, Northwest, Federal Express) may operate from any point in the U.S. to any point in Japan. For example, more flights can therefore originate in Chicago/Midwest region. 

The number of flights to Japan will become unlimited, and more cities will have direct flights to Japan.


The Agreement provides new opportunities for so-called "non-incumbent" carriers in the passenger & cargo and all-cargo area by adding new flights to Japan. The total number of weekly flights will increase from currently 46 to 136 in the year 2001. 

This will favor, for example, American, Delta and Continental.


Also, U.S. and Japanese carriers may engage in "code sharing" (putting the 2-letter code of one airline on another's flight to expand networks and save costs).


The U.S. and Japan will continue negotiations no later than January 1, 2001, to establish a fully liberal aviation relationship.


[Japan is a very important market for U.S. airlines, generating more than $10 billion in revenue annually (1995 estimate). Also, Japanese tourists spent more than $19 billion in the U.S. in 1996. The U.S. has fully liberal aviation agreements with several Asian nations, including Brunei, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore and Taiwan.]

The Agreement is available from the U.S. Department of State, Aviation Office, Phone: (202) 647-5843 or 647-8001; a statement of Japanese Foreign Minister Obuchi is available on the website of the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, at www.mofa.go.jp/cs/civil.htm.


BIOETHICS


Nineteen Council of Europe members sign Protocol to Oviedo Convention on bio-ethics that would add ban on cloning of human genes set except as to isolated cells or tissue 


On January 12, 1998, 19 of the 40 Member States of the Council of Europe (Strasbourg) signed a Protocol on the prohibition of human "cloning." Several non-Members of the Council, including the U.S. and Canada, have taken part in the drafting. The signatories agree to incorporate that ban into their national laws. 


The Protocol supplements the Bio-Ethics Convention (The Oviedo Convention) that 22 Member States have already signed. The Protocol bars any human intervention that is intended to create a human being genetically identical to another. The Protocol defines "genetically identical" as "sharing with another the same nuclear gene set." (Article 1). It does, however, allow for the cloning of isolated cells or tissue. 


The signatories must now implement the Protocol into national law by imposing sanctions for violations of the cloning ban. This may include fines, as well as the revocation of licenses for medical practitioners and laboratories. Notably, Germany and the UK did not sign the Protocol. Germany claims that its existing prohibition on such genetic experiments is more strict. The Council of Europe is next planning to add a protocol specifically to prohibit the misuse of human embryos. 


Citation: Additional Protocol to the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Dignity of the Human Being with regard to the Application of Biology and Medicine, on the Prohibition of Cloning Human Beings (Paris, January 12, 1998), ETS No. 168), available at the website of the Council of Europe www.coe.fr.

Other Posts by Terik Hashmi

Miami-based business consultant Terik Hashmi announced the completion of his study & book on Online Reputation Management (ORM), specifically for lawyers. 


At the pre-publication reception at an art Galleria in the chic Garment District of Miami, Mr. Hashmi announced that the book will be available soon on Amazon and other outlets.

“I noticed a particular need for more information about Online Reputation Management for Lawyers,” explained Mr. Hashmi at the event. “Being an attorney by training myself, I have seen first-hand what the internet has done to the entire profession. First of all, even while the economy was under pressure to cut costs in the 1990s, law schools continued to mint new lawyers. Then the internet took flight, creating lawyer-substitutes such as Legalzoom that increase the pressure on the profession. And as if that was not enough, now everybody can post negative opinions about attorneys anywhere on the internet, from Yelp to setting up a hate blog about lawyers. If you are a lawyer, how do you deal with that?”


Mr. Hashmi has spent months researching this book and conducting countless interviews with practicing attorneys and professionals in the area of Online Reputation Management (ORM). Among his findings were, as to Online Reputation Management, that most attorneys focus on comments posted about them rather than positive information in general. The result is that an attorney about whom a negative comment has been published attempts to rectify the situation, rather than publicizing positive information that will have a tendency to supersede any negative comment. The conclusion is that it is difficult to improve one’s reputation with online comments. There as to be substance that is recognized by search engines such as Google as "valuable" to other users. “Content is more important than Comment,” quipped Mr. Hashmi.

Another conclusion is that no practicing attorney can neglect his or her online reputation. Explains Mr. Hashmi: “Just one look at job ads on Craigslist shows you the economic pressure on the legal profession. You’ll see attorney jobs advertised at $22 or $25 per hour. It is hard to make a living at such rates with a $100,000 in student loans. If you add bad online reputation to the mix, the result is that you cannot make money in law. Thus, you must address your online reputation unless you chose to wear a scarlet letter in public and be broke.”


Mr. Hashmi thanked in particular his editor, Timeless Words. The book is expected to be available on www.amazon.com shortly.
