I’m delighted to welcome aboard as a guest blogger Brad A. Greenberg who is the Intellectual Property Fellow at Columbia Law School’s Kernochan Center for Law, Media and the Arts and a Visiting Fellow at the Yale Information Society Project. He writes primarily about intellectual property and media law, with an emphasis on legal questions raised by new technologies; his scholarship draws on a previous career as a newspaper reporter. His current project, which recasts technology neutrality as an at times undesirable, and often unachievable, feature of legislative drafting, explores why the 1976 Copyright Act has adapted so poorly to technological development.
His recent publications include
Copyright Trolls and Presumptively Fair Uses, 85 U. Colo. L. Rev. 53 (2014)
DOMA’s Ghost and Copyright Reversionary Interests, 108 Nw. U. L. Rev. 391 (2013)
