My main interests are in intellectual property, especially copyright law and digital technology. I have presented at conferences in NZ, Australia, the United Kingdom and Europe. My earlier articles, published by the International Review of Intellectual Property and Competition Law and the European Intellectual Property Review, deal with a controversial and much traversed issue on the idea-expression dichotomy in copyright law and peer-to-peer file sharing. The latter compares the legislative initiatives in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and NZ. More recently, my research has focussed on software licensing and exhaustion of rights in digital goods, and patent law.
