Economics of Reputational Information Talk

By Eric Goldman

I am nearing the end of my last major research project (the Brand Spillovers project–see [1] and [2]). I hope to post a near-final draft to SSRN in the next couple of months.

Meanwhile, I’m now moving on to my next major project, which I am currently calling “the Economics of Reputational Information.” This project isn’t an IP paper specifically, but it is a natural extension of my last couple of papers that discussed how trademarks could suppress socially useful Internet content. I presented some very initial thoughts about the project at IPSC last week at Stanford. My slides.
