What I’m Working On

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND THE MYTH OF NON-RIVALRY

This paper challenges conventional assumptions about IP centered on the idea that intellectual goods are non-rivalrous by highlighting the significance of conflicts between those who want to use an intellectual good and those who object to that use.

INTELLECTUAL POSSESSION (with Dotan Oliar)

This paper looks at the use of first possession concepts in intellectual property law by drawing on insights from the treatment of first possession rules in traditional property settings.

HOHFELD AND THE PROBLEM OF THE THIRD PERSON

This paper argues that Wesley Hohfeld’s influential rights classification scheme fails to account for ways in which certain legal relationships affect more than two people and that this blindspot can distort understandings of property.
