I’m a Professor of Law at New York Law School. I study how the law governing the creation and use of computer software affects individual freedom and the distribution of wealth and power in society. As a lawyer and technologist, I try to help these two groups speak intelligibly to each other. I teach intellectual property and Internet-related subjects.
In the spring semester of 2013, I am visiting at Georgetown University.
The second edition of my casebook is available from Semaphore Press.
