About James Grimmelmann

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.


Present Professor of Law, University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law
