berinszokaI’m please to welcome Berin Szoka to the TLF as a new contributor. Berin is currently serving as a Visiting Fellow at the Progress & Freedom Foundation and working closely with me to create a new Center for Internet Freedom within PFF. At PFF and here on the TLF blog, Berin will be sounding off on a wide variety of Internet policy issues such as online free speech, intermediary immunity and Sec. 230 issues, online advertising, behavior marketing, privacy policy, e-commerce taxation/regulation, Internet jurisdictional matters, and much more.

Berin also has a great deal of experience on the traditional communications / spectrum law front and will be sounding off on those issues as well. Before joining PFF, he practiced communications, Internet and satellite law as an Associate in the Communications Practice group at Latham and Watkins LLP. Prior to his time with Latham, he practiced at Lawler Metzger Milkman & Keeney, LLC, a boutique telecommunications law firm in Washington, and he also clerked for the Hon. H. Dale Cook, Senior U.S. District Judge for the Northern District of Oklahoma.

Finally, Berin has a keen interest in space technology and the policy and legal issues affecting space commercialization. He has been an Advocate of the Space Frontier Foundation since 2005. On occassion, he will be commenting on space law issues here at the TLF.

Berin hasa degree in economics from Duke University and his JD from the University of Virginia School of Law, where he served as Submissions Editor of the Virginia Journal of Law and Technology. We look forward to his contributions to the TLF!
