"Alan Toner, intellectual property and communications researcher, lost between New York, Buenos Aires, Rome, Berlin and Dublin. Mixing law, alcohol Critical Wine, politics and media in various languages since 1973. Some people may have met me as a fellow at the Information Law Institute and the Engelberg Center on Law and Innovation at New York University or around the World Summit on the Information society when I worked with WSIS: We Seize!, but I’m now a freelancer.
Current Interest: The new Intellectual Property Rights Enforcement Directive (IPRED2), which I oppose. See the FFII page dedicated to the question. I’m still following conflicts in Argentina related to pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, and the ongoing fights around peer production, p2p and piracy." (http://knowfuture.wordpress.com/)
