Clinical Assistant Professor of Law and Reference Librarian

David is a UNC Law graduate who returned to Chapel Hill full-time in August 2013 to serve as a reference librarian and clinical assistant professor of law. Dave is also Digital Library Fellow with the UC Berkeley School of Law, a position he has held since 2011. Dave manages the UNC Law Library's library's faculty research service and contributes to a wide variety of other library reference services. His primary research interest is in the ways that intellectual property law--especially copyright law--affect the ability of libraries and their patrons to make full use of library materials. Dave's writing has focused on the continued development of library copyright exceptions (Sec. 108), the application of fair use to orphan works as used by libraries, copyright and library licensing, and the application of intellectual property law to digital library metadata. He has also actively engaged with current library-copyright litigation, co-authoring amicus briefs for organizations and individuals in Authors Guild v. Google, Authors Guild v. HathiTrust, and in the Georgia State e-reserves lawsuit, Cambridge University Press v. Becker.
