Online Symposia on The Electronic Silk Road and Talent Wants to be Free

Frank Pasquale

Readers may be interested in recent online symposia on Anupam Chander's The Electronic Silk Road, and Orly Lobel's Talent Wants to be Free. I think each book shows the value of engaged legal scholarship. Both authors grapple with some of the most difficult problems raised by rapid globalization in a sustained and focused way. (My review of Chander is here, and Lobel, here.) They both show that, as policymakers decide on the best ways to balance rights and responsibilities in the digital economy, legal scholars should enjoy just as much a "place at the table" as economists, business scholars, and other social scientists.
