Mayer Brown Legal Update
Providing another reminder of the US federal government’s ongoing scrutiny of high-frequency trading (“HFT”) firms and manipulative trading practices involving HFT, the Securities and Exchange Commission recently settled its first market-manipulation case against a HFT firm under Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”) and Rule 10b-5, which prohibit fraudulent conduct in connection with the purchase or sale of securities.

Mayer Brown Legal Update
A World Trade Organization (“WTO”) panel has ruled that the United States’ amended country-of-origin labeling (“COOL”) requirements for beef and pork products not only fell short of bringing it into compliance with prior rulings but, in fact, worsened the United States’ treaty violations. This is the third adverse WTO ruling since 2011 against the United States in the ongoing dispute over its COOL measure.

Mayer Brown JSM Legal Update

Social media, mobile computing, “big data” analysis and cloud computing (“SMAC”) are fundamentally changing the way in which HR professionals can now operate.

In many ways, SMAC can help increase efficiency and improve outcome, particularly with HR processes such as talent acquisition, performance management and employee engagement.

However, using these technologies without understanding the legal risks and compliance issues could be dangerous and costly.

This legal update is part of our series of updates to discuss the excitement and pitfalls in using SMAC. In this update, we look at issues from a Hong Kong data privacy law angle, and discuss terms you may consider negotiating with your SMAC provider.

SEPTEMBER 2014

Today, perhaps more than ever, institutions and corporations operate in an environment where they are required and expected to critically assess their own operations and conduct. Those same organisations are working against a backdrop of an increased, and increasing, weight of regulatory standards. Those regulations apply across the spectrum of industry and throughout the breadth of an organisation’s global operations.

This is especially true in Asia, particularly in the past decade. As foreign investment into the region has increased, so have enforcement efforts from both within and outside of Asia.

The Administrative Council for Economic Defense (“CADE”) has enacted two new Resolutions, which were published on October 7th, 2014, in the Federal Official Gazette. They are minor, yet significant, changes to CADE’s Internal Regulations as well as to Resolution No. 02/2012. The changes proposed therein resulted from suggestions received from Public Hearings No. 01/2014 and No. 02/2014, carried out in February 2014.

Companies use these clauses to create penalties for consumers who leave negative feedback on platforms such as Yelp, Twitter, Facebook and Amazon.

In Germany, a large number of transactions – in recent times, more than 1,000 each year – have to be reported to the national antitrust authority (the Bundeskartellamt) for merger control clearance. The merger clearance obligation exists if the companies concerned meet certain turnover thresholds and the transaction produces “appreciable effects” in Germany.
