Wendy Seltzer founded and leads the Chilling Effects clearinghouse, a project to study and combat the ungrounded legal threats that chill activity on the Internet. She also helped start and now leads
the Openlaw project, an experiment bringing
the methods of open source and Free Software development to legal
argument in the public interest.
Ms. Seltzer is currently visiting assistant professor at Brooklyn Law School, where she will be teaching Internet Law and Privacy. She was previously a staff attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation, focused on intellectual property and free speech issues. She is also a fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard Law School.
I spoke to Wendy Seltzer about some of the key issues in digital rights law, and what the cause of "corrupt" intellectual property might be.
