Molly Van Houweling is a Berkeley Law professor. Her research focuses on copyright law and other techniques for encouraging and regulating creativity and innovation. She is particularly interested in the implications of "voluntary" methods of regulation (technological protection, open source and other licensing schemes, etc.). She often assess these methods in light of the theoretical overlaps and divergences between intellectual property and real property law. She also teach classes on food law and policy, and enjoy learning more about that from expert colleagues across campus.
