Internet Law: Cases and Problems | Patterns of Information Law | Open Source Property

I’m a law professor at Cornell Tech and Cornell Law School. I study how laws regulating software affect freedom, wealth, and power. I try to help lawyers and technologists understand each other by writing about digital copyright, search engines, privacy on social networks, online governance, and other topics in computer and Internet law.
