I’m Professor of Law at the University of Maryland, where I direct the Intellectual Property Program, and a Visiting Professor at the University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies.
I study how laws regulating software affect freedom, wealth, and power. I try to help lawyers and technologists understand each other.
