Ross G. Anderson (University of Glasgow) has posted The Offside Goals Rule in Practice. I must admit that the paper title caught my eye primarly because we've been watching a lot of World Cup soccer around here [for evidence, see this local news video from Rice Soccer Camp with my daughter giving her pre-game analysis of the U.S.-Algeria game (and showing off some footwork) from last week!].
But it turns out that Anderson's paper is actually about property law--Scottish property law to be exact. The abstract:
The author discusses the rule which penalises purchaser's of property who have private knowledge of the rights of a prior purchaser. In particular, he focusses on the practical implications of the rule for transactional lawyers.
From skimming the paper it looks like the "offside goals rule" is somewhat analagous to the American concept of race-notice recording of land conveyances. But I like the soccer metaphor.
