I study how the law governing the creation and use of computer software affects
individual freedom and the distribution of wealth and power in society. By giving close
attention to both technical and social details, I hope to develop better legal
conceptions of such technologies as search engines, spyware, open source, spam, and
virtual worlds -- and to help lawyers and technologists speak intelligibly to each other.
