Join us for this evening talk where Brett Frischmann will discuss the social value of shared infrastructures— including roads, our natural environment, and the Internet—and he will explain why we can no longer afford to take these resources for granted.

Frischmann's book is a major contribution to many ongoing public policy debates. It has received strong reviews from experts in many different fields, including leading economists, political scientists and legal scholars. According to the late Elinor Ostrom, winner of the 2009 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences, Frischmann's "extraordinary book" provides "essential guidance for the analysis of diverse types of infrastructure resources and how policies affect the effectiveness, efficiency, fairness, and sustainability of outcomes." Edella Schlager's review in Science magazine argues that "With its many fresh ideas, Infrastructure itself is likely to generate social value through additional research and the creation of innovative policies."

Brett M. Frischmann is Professor of Law at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, Yeshiva University, where he teaches intellectual property and Internet law. He is currently the Director of Cardozo's IP and Information Law Program and is an Affiliate Scholar of the Center for Internet and Society. Read more about Frischmann.
