Research Description

Molly Van Houweling is the Hohbach Distinguished Professor in Patent Law and Intellectual Property and 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 assesses these methods in light of the theoretical overlaps and divergences between intellectual property and real property law. She also teaches classes on food law and policy, with a focus on social justice (and injustice) in food systems.
