I’m Joining Publishers Weekly

I’m very happy to announce some news that’s been in the pipeline for a while and has now come to fruition. I’m joining Publishers Weekly as a Contributing Editor for Legal Affairs. I’m keeping my day job, but I’ll also be writing regularly about copyright and the future of media for the PWxyz blog, with occasional pieces in the magazine. As I say in the press release:

We’re living through the biggest shift in publishing since the invention of printing, and the biggest shift in copyright since the invention of copyright. The law is going to play a huge role in how we manage the transition, and I’m looking forward to exploring the terrain where law, technology, culture and business meet.

My first post, starring Imaginary Bruce Willis, will be going up soon, so stay tuned …
