Introducing Guest Blogger William McGeveran
I’m pleased to announce that Professor William McGeveran will be doing a reprise guest visit with us for the next month. Bill is an associate professor at the University of Minnesota Law School. He is teaching civil procedure and data privacy. His current research focuses on trademark law and data privacy. He blogs at Info/Law.
Before joining the Minnesota Law School faculty, Bill was a fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard Law School. While there, he studied the impact of the copyright regime on educational uses of digital content. That work culminated in a white paper (coauthored with Professor William W. Fisher III at Harvard) entitled The Digital Learning Challenge: Obstacles to Educational Uses of Copyrighted Material in the Digital Age.
Earlier in his career, Bill practiced at Foley Hoag LLP in Boston; clerked for Judge Sandra Lynch on the First Circuit; and, before law school, served as a legislative aide in the House of Representatives for six years. He has a J.D. magna cum laude from NYU Law School and a B.A. magna cum laude from Carleton College.
Some of his publications include:
* Rethinking Trademark Fair Use, 94 Iowa L. Rev. (forthcoming 2008).
* Four Free Speech Goals for Trademark Law, 18 Fordham Intell. Prop., Media & Ent’mt L.J. (2008) (forthcoming)
* Mrs. McIntyre’s Checkbook: Privacy Costs of Political Contribution Disclosure, 6 U. Pa. J. Const. L. 1 (2003)
