Today and tomorrow the Searle Center on Law, Regulation, and Economic Growth will host the Fourth Annual Research Roundtable on the Law and Economics of Digital Markets. Peter DiCola, Associate Professor of Law at Northwestern Law, and Shane Greenstein, Kellogg Chair in Information Technology at the Kellogg School of Management, organize this ongoing roundtable series. The papers presented will include both economic studies of the transition to digital retail of music and legal studies of how copyright law and contract law intersect in the digital environment. This is a unique forum for business economists and legal scholars to come together to discuss the radical changes to the copyright industries brought about by new technology. It’s fascinating work.
Peter and Shane have brought together an interesting and important group of scholars for this event—a complete list of participants and roundtable papers can be found on the Searle Center website.
