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
