In road traffic law, for example, a statute may require large vehicles to be taken into account separately from other vehicles. The word “big” is inherently ambiguous, but can be considered difficult. Thus, the relevant legislation (in Australian law) contains a section entitled Terms or definitions used, which breaks down all words considered ambiguous and gives specific interpretations that correspond to natural language. This list tells us that the heavy vehicle means a vehicle with a GVM of more than 4.5 tons, and GMM means the gross weight of the vehicle, the maximum weight charged the vehicle. Other explanations refer to different contingencies. Thus, large is synonymous with heavy and is (for this unique case) clearly defined sui generis. Sui generis (/ˌsuːi) is a Latin term meaning “of its species, in a class for oneself,” meaning “unique.”  However, in many countries, there are sui generis statutes that extend the protection of intellectual property to a subject that does not correspond to the characteristic definitions: integrated circuit settings, hull designs, fashion designs in France, databases or varieties of plants require sui generis statuses because of their unique characteristics. The United States, Japan, Australia and many EU countries protect the topography of semiconductor chips and integrated circuits, in accordance with sui generis laws, which borrow certain aspects of patent or copyright law. In the United States, this sui generis act is known as the Semiconductor Chip Protection Act of 1984. A similar case that led to the use of the sui generis label is the relationship between New Caledonia and France, because the legal status of New Caledonia may lie somewhere between an overseas French community and a sovereign nation. Although there may be other examples of such status for other dependent or controversial areas, this regime is unique within French space. This case leads the court to a sui generis interpretation of the law In the taxonomic structure “species → species,” a species is described as sui generis when its geni genus was created to classify it (i.e., their uniqueness at the time of classification deserved the creation of a new genus whose only member was originally sui generis). A species that is the only preserved member of its genus (for example.
B the genus Homo) is not necessarily sui generis; Extinction has eliminated other ingenious species. You can use the term sui generis as an alternative to the term “single.” A court may indicate that a case is sui generis, where its unique justification should not apply to the principles of stare decisis. In political philosophy, the unprecedented development of the European Union in relation to other international organisations has led to its characterization as a sui generis geopolitical entity. The legal nature of the EU is the subject of a wide debate, as its mixture of intergovernmental and supranational elements allows it to share characteristics with Confederate and federated entities.
