Biography
Brad A. Greenberg joined the Kernochan Center as an Intellectual Property Fellow in 2013. His scholarship focuses on laws that encourage, restrict, or regulate speech and technological development, with an emphasis on legal questions raised by disruptive innovation; it at times draws on prior experiences as a newspaper reporter and paid blogger. His recent scholarly publications include “Copyright Trolls and Presumptively Fair Uses,” 85 U. Colo. L. Rev. 53 (2014); "The Federal Media Shield Folly," 91 Wash. U. L. Rev. 437 (2013); and “More Than Just a Formality: Instant Authorship and Copyright’s Opt-Out Future in the Digital Age,” 59 UCLA L. Rev. 1028 (2012).  He graduated from UCLA with a degree in communication studies and, after a five-year journalism career, from UCLA School of Law. In law school he served as editor-in-chief of the UCLA Entertainment Law Review and was a Copyright Society Paul Miller Scholar. He comes to New York by way of Miami, where he clerked for the Hon. James Lawrence King of the United States District Court in the Southern District of Florida.
