This blog reflects my personal views. Nonetheless, it’s important for people to know that I advise corporate clients on these matters. I run a little law firm and public policy practice. It’s an opinionated law firm: the opinion being that the Internet should be open and free.
On a range of matters, my current and past clients include Google, Dropbox, Apple, Tumblr, Twitter, WordPress.com, eBay, SoftBank, Charter, and the National Association of Realtors. I have worked on free expression, copyright, government surveillance issues, patents, broadband and wireless, net neutrality, and pro-entrepreneurship policies.
I am on the Board of Directors of several nonprofit advocacy groups, including Fight for the Future (Chairman), Demand Progress, and Engine Advocacy. This work is pro bono, done out of love for those organizations and their extremely important work. I am also a Senior Fellow at the Democracy Fund, which comes with some funding.
Before taking on any corporate clients, I was an academic and a public interest lawyer. I was a lawyer for Free Press, a nonprofit that takes no contributions from governments or corporations with a stake in their issues.
