What Contracts Can't Do: The Limits of Private Ordering in Facilitating a Creative Commons
Today I attended the latest Colloquium on Information Technology & Society hosted by the Information Law Institute (of which I'm a Student Fellow), at New York University School of Law. Professor Niva Elkin-Koren of Haifa University Law School gave an excellent talk entitled "What Contracts Can't Do: The Limits of Private Ordering in Facilitating a Creative Commons," in which she outlined many of the legal challenges related to Creative Commons licenses and the existing intellectual property & copyright regime.
Others in attendance included Joseph Reagle and Benjamin Mako Hill.
