Paul Ohm Guest-Blogging:

I'm delighted to report that Prof. Paul Ohm (University of Colorado Law School) will be guest-blogging this week. Paul specializes in computer crime law, criminal procedure, intellectual property, and information privacy; before going into teaching, he worked in the Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section at the U.S. Justice Department, and before law school he worked as a computer programmer. Like me, Paul is a UCLA Law School graduate; go Bruins!

Paul will be discussing two of his recent articles this week. First, he will talk about "The Myth of the Superuser: Fear, Risk, and Harm Online," in which he critiques the rhetoric used in debates about online conflicts. On Thursday, he begin to talk about "The Analog Hole and the Price of Music," which gives the results of an empirical study he co-authored about what people are willing to pay for music online.
