About This Blog

Mostly IP History is a blogging experiment by Zvi S. Rosen.  Originally meant for sharing random documents I’ve found, it’s since been cited in court briefs and law reviews, and even registered with the US Copyright Office.

I am currently an Assistant Professor at Southern Illinois University School of Law, where I teach courses in copyright, IP, business law, and 1L property.   I am a member of the Academic Advisory Board to the Copyright Alliance and a Scholar at the Center for Intellectual Property x Innovation Policy at Antonin Scalia Law School / George Mason University.  Before this I served as the Abraham L. Kaminstein Scholar in Residence at the U.S. Copyright Office.  I’ve also taught at a number of other law schools in the past, including the George Washington University School of Law, the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University and the New York Law School, and I practiced law in New York for a number of years.

Although my primary research is on intellectual property law, I also have a substantial background in commercial bankruptcy and business law more generally, and I clerked for (subsequently Chief) Judge Thomas B. Bennett of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Alabama.

For those so inclined, my publications can be read from my SSRN page.
