On intermediaries, at the Information Law and Policy Centre – 5 October 2017lexferenda

Tue, 10 Oct 2017 10:40:17 +0000

Cross-posted from Taking stock of recent developments concerning the liability and duties associated with being an Internet intermediary (especially the provision of hosting and social media services) was the theme of a recent event at the Information Law and Policy Centre. In my presentation (click to download slides), starting from about 20 years ago, … Continue reading On intermediaries, at the Information Law and Policy Centre – 5 October 2017

Peng t(h)ing called disruption…lexferenda

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 10:22:47 +0000

Discourse and rhetoric around the ‘sharing economy’ is something that fascinates me, and I am hoping to do a larger project on the topic (subject to time, funding and the usual caveats). But the 2017 release of two songs ostensibly ‘about’ new ways of travelling (Tom Zanetti’s ‘Uber’ and Not3s’ ‘Addison Lee’), and the brief … Continue reading Peng t(h)ing called disruption…

My book Medium Law (Routledge) has just been published. It’s available in hardback (from the publisher and from various bookshops) and for Kindle and as a Google Play ebook, and an extract/summary is available here. Here’s the mission statement, more or less (taken from chapter one): I will set out the case for continuing to … Continue reading Now out – Medium Law – the book!

I have a new article in the forthcoming issue of the Journal of British Cinema and Television. JBCTV (Edinburgh University Press) is a journal that I have read and cited for some time, so it’s a particular pleasure to be published in it after all that. The paper is entitled ‘TV-like’: aesthetics, quality and genre … Continue reading Disliking like

I’ve neglected this blog for quite a while now (and it was hardly all that active beforehand), so this is just a note of hello (and welcome back, hopefully) to readers. I’ve also updated some of the static pages at the tabs above (about my research, etc) and regular posts will resume in coming days. … Continue reading Rebooting

Ten years!lexferenda

Thu, 01 Jun 2017 00:00:20 +0000

This is a post made out of notes on the first ten years of this blog (2006-2016). Most of the activity was during that first half. I’m posting it now as part of the site reboot. Some things of interest…to me, at least: In that first period, the number of visits per year was consistently … Continue reading Ten years!

Coming Soonlexferenda

On the Routledge website, a first announcement of my forthcoming (i.e. still being written) book, Medium Law (to be published late in 2016). While I am not expecting George RR Martin levels of encouragement to finish it, it is equal parts nice and intimidating to start a new year with an ISBN…

Last March, I wrote a blog post (itself based on a speech given at the launch of the new Information Law & Policy Centre at the Institute for Advanced Legal Studies) on what happened in the field of IT law over the five years of the Conservative / Liberal Democrat coalition government in the UK. An extended … Continue reading After the Coalition

The UK Government’s ‘Fulfilling Our Potential’ green paper on higher education (subtitle: “Teaching Excellence, Social Mobility and Student Choice”) was published today (not yet on official site, but PDF here). Of course, there is excellent coverage in places such as the Times Higher and WonkHE. Here are some initial impressions on my part (breakfast reading, … Continue reading It’s not easy being green
