Frank Pasquale Joins Our Team

pasquale.jpgWe are delighted that Frank Pasquale will be joining us on a permanent basis. Frank guested with us a while ago, and now he’s back for good.

Frank is a professor of law at Seton Hall Law School. He holds a BA from Harvard, an M.Phil. in Politics from Oxford University (as a Marshall Scholar), and a JD from Yale Law School. Prior to joining the Seton Hall faculty, Frank clerked for the Honorable Judge Kermit Lipez of the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, served as a fellow at the Institute for the Defense of Competition and Protection of Intellectual Property in Lima, Peru, and was an attorney at Arnold & Porter in Washington, DC. Frank focuses his scholarship on intellectual property and health law, and he has a broad-ranging interdisciplinary approach that draws from economics, philosophy, and social science.

His recent scholarship includes, The Law and Economics of Information Overload Externalities, Vanderbilt L. Rev. (forthcoming 2006); Toward an Ecology of Intellectual Property, forthcoming in the Yale J. Law & Tech. (forthcoming 2006); Breaking the Vicious Circularity: Sony’s Contribution to the Fair Use Doctrine, 55 Case W. Res. L. Rev. 777 (2005); Beyond Napster: Using Antitrust Law to Advance and Enhance Online Music Distribution, 8 B.U. J. Sci. & Tech. L. 451 (2002) (with Kimberlee Weatherall and Matthew Fagin); and Two Concepts of Immortality: Reframing Public Debate on Stem Cell Research, 14 Yale J.L. & Human. 73 (2002). His recent works-in-progress include Rankings, Reductionism, and Responsibility (about search engine regulation) and The Law and Economics of Information Overload Externalities.

Frank will begin posting next week. Welcome, Frank!

    Thanks, Greg! Yes, I’ll still be doing IP posts at Madisonian. And my colleague Gaia and I will be coordinating (and posting) at the Tech Theory blog/symposium at Jurisdynamics.

    Frank’s instincts strike me as impeccable. In addition to his legal acumen, he possesses a finely honed ethical sense and an intriguing breadth and depth of cultivated interests (evidenced in part above with reference to his ‘broad-ranging interdisciplinary approach’), suffused throughout by an expansive and generous humane sensibility we would do well to emulate.
