Christopher Sprigman on Data-Driven Authorship

Ipse Dixit

In this episode, Christopher Jon Sprigman, Professor of Law at NYU School of Law, discusses his new article "The Second Digital Disruption: Data, Algorithms & Authorship in the 21st Century," which he co-authored with Kal Raustiala. Sprigman describes his consequentialist approach to copyright law and policy, and uses it to focus on recent developments in the production of works of authorship. Specifically, he explains how the pornography industry has collected and managed data about the preferences of its customers to provide them with the content they want to consume, and determine what kinds of content to produce. He reflects on how the pornography industry's use of data is migrating throughout the copyright sector. And he speculates on what this new "disruption" may mean for authorship and creativity in the future. Sprigman is on Twitter at @CJSprigman.
