David Levine selected as a Visiting Research Collaborator at Princeton 

Elon Law Professor David S. Levine, an affiliate scholar at Stanford Law School’s Center for Internet and Society, has accepted a position as a Visiting Research Collaborator at Princeton University’s Center for Information Technology Policy for 2014-15. 

The Center for Information Technology Policy (CITP) is an interdisciplinary center at Princeton University, drawing together expertise in technology, engineering, public policy and the social sciences. CITP's research, teaching and events address digital technologies as they interact with society.

Levine will be working on issues involving information systems, technology and intellectual property law making, and access to information. Continuing his efforts to improve law and policy with regard to commercial secrecy, and the impact of such law on the ability of the public and government to regulate industry, Levine will be advancing his scholarship on legislative input processes and how trade secret law should be tailored by industry. 

"CITP's unique blend of interdisciplinary advocacy and scholarship around technology, intellectual property law and government makes this position a wonderful opportunity to delve deeply into my areas of interest," said Levine. "I am delighted to be part of their broad and dynamic community."

Levine is scheduled to give a lunchtime talk at CITP on Monday, August 11.

At Elon Law, Levine teaches courses in intellectual property law, Internet law, trade secrets and contracts. His scholarship focuses on the operation of intellectual property law at the intersection of technology and public life, specifically information flows in the lawmaking and regulatory process and intellectual property law's impact on public and private secrecy, transparency and accountability. Levine is the founder and host of Hearsay Culture on KZSU-FM (Stanford University), an information policy, intellectual property law and technology talk show for which he has recorded over 200 interviews since May 2006.
