Dear colleagues,

Just a reminder that we have a special treat tomorrow:
Prof. James Boyle will be coming to give a talk.  The event
is co-sponsored by the CS Department, the School of Law, and
the Center for Science & Innovation Studies.

Prof. Boyle is the Williams Reynolds Professor of Law at Duke.
He is also a board member of Creative Commons and a columnist
for the "Financial Times".  His essay "The Second Enclosure
Movement and the Construction of the Public Domain" is a
classic, and his latest book, "The Public Domain: Enclosing
the Commons of the Mind" (2008) is a wonderful (and scary) read.
I suspect Prof. Boyle will give an interesting and engaging talk.

Note the atypical location (1002 Giedt, the building
immediately north of Kemper) (we feared we wouldn't all fit
in Kemper this tims).  Hope to see you all there!


 UC Davis Dept. of Computer Science - Distinguished Lecture Series

                Learning from the Software Wars

                        James Boyle
                      Duke Law School

             Thursday - Feb 10, 2011 - 3:10 pm
                      1002 Giedt Hall
             Reception and refreshments to follow
           afterwards in the Kemper Hall main lobby

Over the last 40 years, software was forced -- reluctantly and with some
conceptual violence -- into the conceptual boxes provided by intellectual
property law.  What can we learn from the experience?  In this lecture,
James Boyle will argue that the "software wars" actually present some
deep lessons for the future of technology and the ways that law should,
and should not, regulate that future.
