Welcome! We are multi-faceted. We began as a research podcast by Dr. Townsend Gard at Tulane University Law School.
We've grown into a community about quilting, crafting, entrepreneurship and intellectual property.

Interviewed by Elizabeth Townsend Gard
Date December 2017
Dave is a colleague who teaches IP at the University of Houston. His work is super interesting: he looks at what is called "negative space." We will be talking about his work and what we can learn to see if the idea that there are spaces that are protected by something other than traditional IP in the quilting industry. He is also writing about "buying happiness" and the "moral psychology of copyright infringement." He has also worked on roller derby and clowns. Check out his article on clowns here.
Here's his author page on SSRN.
