We write here and write elsewhere. We write geeky, academic law review articles and more riveting, popular articles and blog posts.


Most recently, Marvin wrote an e-book, about 30,000 words or 100 pages, called On Internet Freedom. Read it.

Popular Articles

Marvin has published popular articles in the Boston Review on innovation and government “corruption,” in The New York Times on privacy and network neutrality, and in The Atlantic on copyright and the Supreme Court:

  • Corruption Economy, Boston Review (Sept. 2010)
  • Regulate Today’s Rockefellers, The New York Times (Aug., 9, 2010)
  • Impose Real Privacy Rules, The New York Times (Dec. 2, 2010)

  • Why Obama Should Run Against The Supreme Court, The Atlantic (Apr. 6, 2012)

In June 2012, Marvin published an article in The Atlantic about the importance of teaching young students coding skills, which he argues will help spur a new generation of American programmers and entrepreneurs to build innovative startups.

In January, 2013, Marvin published an article on Wired.com calling for a new holiday – Internet Freedom Day. The idea quickly spread and became a success, with events held in Washington, D.C. and San Francisco, many on the Internet participating in a virtual action of mass civil disobedience – sharing a video of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech. In the midst of the the day’s events, the video was removed from Vimeo, prompting Marvin to pen a piece for Slate discussing the tragic state of today’s copyright law.

Marvin has written several other pieces for Wired.com, as well as Slate. He also writes for Balkinization and The Huffington Post.

Luke has published op-eds with The Washington TimesThe Daily Caller, and Fox News.

Marvin and Luke co-authored articles published in ForbesCNET and The Sacramento Bee.

Academic Writings

Marvin’s most recent law review article, on First Amendment issues of Internet regulation, earned the praise of Tim WuSusan Crawford, and MSNBC host Dylan Ratigan, among others. In April 2012, the Stanford Technology Law Review devoted a third of its annual symposium to the piece. He has published two other articles on First Amendment doctrine and Internet policy, which are currently assigned to students taking free-speech courses at Harvard, Georgetown, and other law schools.

previous article on copyright, antitrust, and online television was republished for the 2011 UCLA Entertainment Law Symposium and for Thompson West’s Entertainment, Publishing and the Arts Handbook (2011).

He also co-authored a piece on network neutrality and cybersecurity with a senior lawyer at U.S. Cyber Command. While in law school, Marvin won Harvard Law School’s award for the best student article on copyright law.

Luke recently authored an article on the legal framework applicable to computer network intrusions and “cyberespionage,” which was published in Vol. 20, Issue No. 1 of Catholic University Law School’s CommLaw Conspectus: Journal of Communications Law & Policy.

Together, Marvin and Luke have authored two articles. The first, published in the Journal of Internet Law, dissected the proposed antitrust remedies amid the FTC’s investigation of Google. The second, forthcoming in the Albany Law Review, explores the intersection of privacy and online media diversity.
