In James Boyle's lively presentation on the new "intellectual property economy", he asks the question, "If we cannot protect speech in a university environment, where can we protect it?"

Clifford Lynch reflects on the beginnings of a repository movement, and talks about the need for leadership during this time of significant change in scholarly communication.

James Boyle: James Boyle is William Neal Reynolds Professor of Law and Faculty Co-Director of the Center for the Study of the Public Domain at Duke Law School. He joined the faculty in July 2000. He has also taught at American University, Yale, Harvard, and the University of Pennsylvania Law School. He is the editor of Critical Legal Studies (Dartmouth/NYU Press 1994), special editor of Collected Papers on the Public Domain (Duke: L&CP 2003) and author of Shamans, Software and Spleens: Law and Construction of the Information Society (Harvard University Press 1996). Recently he was the winner of the 2003 World Technology Award for Law for his work on the "intellectual ecology" of the public domain, and on the "second enclosure movement" that threatens it; (a disappointing amount of which was foretold in his 1996 New York Times article on the subject.)

Clifford Lynch: Clifford Lynch has been the Director of the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) since July 1997. CNI, jointly sponsored by the Association of Research Libraries and EDUCAUSE, includes about 200 member organizations concerned with the use of information technology and networked information to enhance scholarship and intellectual productivity.

Lynch currently serves on the National Digital Preservation Strategy Advisory Board of the Library of Congress; he was a member of the National Research Council committees that published The Digital Dilemma: Intellectual Property in the Information Infrastructure and Broadband: Bringing Home the Bits, and now serves on the NRC's committee on digital archiving and the National Archives and Records Administration.
