IP Colloquium: Tim Wu and The Master Switch

By Doug Lichtman

Posted on January 4, 2011


Columbia Law Professor Tim Wu has been one of the leading voices in the debate over network neutrality.  He is a scholar of both copyright and telecommunications law; and, over the years, he has developed some pretty influential views about how legal rules impact innovation. Tim just wrote a summary of his views in the form of pop-press book entitled, The Master Switch: The Rise and Fall of Information Empires. On this edition of the IP Colloquium, he joins UCLA Law Professor Doug Lichtman to talk about that book, and the ideas it articulates about innovation and competition.

Tim Wu and The Master Switch is available online at IP Colloquium's Web site, or you can begin listening to it from the download link (below). And, as per usual, lawyers who listen can earn free CLE credit in California, New York, Texas, Illinois and several other states.
