Introducing Guest Blogger Viva Moffat
I am thrilled to introduce Viva Moffat, who will be guest blogging with us this month. Professor Moffat is an Assistant Professor of Law at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, where she teaches Contracts and various Intellectual Property courses, including Introduction to Intellectual Property, Copyright Law, and Trademark Law. She is also Special Counsel at Kamlet Reichert LLP in Denver. Moffat received her J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law, where she was Editor-in-Chief of the Virginia Law Review. Before she started teaching, she clerked for Judge Robert Beezer on the 9th Circuit, and she practiced law with Keker & Van Nest in San Francisco, Davis, Graham & Stubbs in Denver, and at a very small firm eventually known as Mastbaum & Moffat.
Professor Moffat’s scholarship focuses on the interactions between the various methods of protecting intellectual property. Her recent work centers on search engine regulation. As the faculty advisor to the Denver University Law Review, Moffat has helped the student editors spearhead various conferences, including the recent Cyber Civil Rights symposium.
Professor Moffat’s scholarship includes:
Regulating Search, 22 Harv. J. L. & Tech. 475 (2009).
