Introducing Peter Yu

Thanks very much for those fascinating posts, Arthur. I look forward to offering some comments once the infamous "March window" of American law review publication passes.

This week, I'm honored to welcome Peter K. Yu (余家明) to Law and Technology Theory. Prof. Yu is the founding director of the nationally-ranked Intellectual Property & Communications Law Program at Michigan State University College of Law. He holds appointments in the Asian Studies Center and the Department of Telecommunication, Information Studies and Media at Michigan State University. He is also a research fellow of the Center for Studies of Intellectual Property Rights at Zhongnan University of Economics and Law in Wuhan, China and a member of the affiliated faculty of the Working Group on Property, Citizenship, and Social Entrepreneurism at Syracuse University College of Law.

Born and raised in Hong Kong, Professor Yu is a leading expert in international intellectual property and communications law. He also writes and lectures extensively on international trade, international and comparative law, and the transition of the legal systems in China and Hong Kong. An editor or coeditor of three books, Professor Yu has spoken at events organized by the ITU, UNCTAD, WIPO and the U.S. and Hong Kong governments and at leading research institutions from around the world. His lectures and presentations have spanned more than ten countries on four continents, and he is a frequent commentator in the national and international media. His publications are available at his website.

One last note: congratulations to Prof. Yu on the recent publication of the magnum opus, Intellectual Property and Information Wealth: Issues and Practices in the Digital Age. Just glance at the table of contents of this four-volume set and you'll be impressed by the comprehensiveness and importance of this work.
