In the latest episode of the Counsel to Counsel Podcast, I speak with Professor Jessica Silbey of Northeastern University School of Law. Professor Silbey discusses how digital media have given rise to changes in IP regulation and data privacy. She provides great insight into how technological innovation has created a significant increase in demand for lawyers who understand these issues.
Professor Silbey is Director of the Center for Law, Innovation and Creativity at Northeastern University School of Law (also known as CLIC). She is a leading scholar and nationally recognized expert on intellectual property and the use of film to communicate about law. Professor Silbey is the author of several books on intellectual property, creativity and invention. She studies the role that intellectual property plays to sustain and frustrate creative and innovative communities. She is a frequent presenter at national and international conferences, and a Guggenheim fellow.
