David Post

David G. Post recently retired from his position as I. Herman Stern Professor of Law at Temple University, where he taught intellectual property law and the law of cyberspace.  Post is the author of In Search of Jefferson’s Moose: Notes on the State of Cyberspace (Oxford), a Jeffersonian view of Internet law and policy, awarded the 2009 Green Bag Legal Writing Award and variously described as “beautifully written” and “astonishing” (Lawrence Lessig), “brilliant and a joy to read” (Jonathan Zittrain), and “an authentic work of genius, conceived and written in the finest Jeffersonian spirit” (Sean Wilentz). In addition, he is the (co)-author of Cyberlaw: Problems of Policy and Jurisprudence in the Information Age (West), and has published numerous scholarly articles on intellectual property, the law of cyberspace, and complexity theory (including Law and Borders: The Rise of Law in Cyberspace, the 2nd most-frequently-cited law review article of all time in the field of intellectual property). He is a regular contributor to the influential legal blog The Volokh Conspiracy.
