Dr. Logan’s primary research interests are in
the fields of information policy, intellectual property and the international
political economy of communication. His
dissertation, “Policing Access to Knowledge: An Analysis of the International
Intellectual Property Prohibition Regime,” reflected on the growing use of trade
regimes and police force to regulate digital piracy. His current research focuses on the ongoing
development of international regulation of hacking, hacktivism and
digital piracy, and the dangers that these regulations offer to civil
liberties and online communication.
