Deven Desai is an associate professor of law and ethics at the Scheller College of Business, Georgia Institute of Technology. He was also the first, and to date, only Academic Research Counsel at Google, Inc., and a Visiting Fellow at Princeton University’s Center for Information Technology Policy. He is a graduate of U.C. Berkeley and the Yale Law School. Professor Desai’s scholarship examines how business interests, new technology, and economic theories shape privacy and intellectual property law and where those arguments explain productivity or where they fail to capture society’s interest in the free flow of information and development. His work has appeared in leading law reviews and journals including the Georgetown Law Journal, Minnesota Law Review, Notre Dame Law Review, Wisconsin Law Review, and U.C. Davis Law Review.

  1. As a junior scholar, I agree with everything Deven just wrote. I missed WIP IP and IPSC this year for personal reasons, and it is a real bummer on a variety of levels.

    BTW that woman on the trolley was wrong — Guillermo del Toro *did* direct the first Hellboy: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0167190/

  3. I also echo everything Deven said, especially his thanks to our hosts.

    I’d also add that, in addition to the help on your own paper, WIPIP and the other conferences like it are great ways to get a big picture of all sorts of different work by different colleagues around the country that is “in the pipeline.”

    It’s definitely great to see what other people are thinking about things. I look forward to more of these type of events.
