William F Patry, Chief Copyright Counsel, Google Inc., William F Patry has been a copyright lawyer for 30 years, previously serving as copyright counsel to the U.S. House of Representatives, Committee on the Judiciary and as a Policy Planning Advisor to the Register of Copyrights. He also was in the private practice of law for 12 years, and was a full-time law professor for 5 years. He is a prolific writer, including the largest treatise ever written on copyright -- a 6,500 page work -- as well as two recent trade publications, How to Fix Copyright (Oxford University Press, 2011) and Moral Panics and the Copyright Wars (OUP, 2009).
The Hargreaves Review bemoaned the prevalence of lobbynomics and the tendency of policy-driven evidence-making, instead of evidence-driven policy-making. Professor Hargreaves also noted that these problems were long-standing, going back to the Banks Review in the 1970s and the Gowers Review in 2006. When politicians talk about being leaders, what does it mean to lead when policy is not based on evidence? Who is leading who? Some of these questions will be explored in this lecture.
