Christopher Wong

Christopher Wong is a Lecturing Fellow at the Institute for Information Law & Policy at New York Law School, and a Visiting Fellow at both the Princeton University Center for Information Technology Policy and the Yale Law School Information Society Project.  Christopher's work focuses on the confluence of intellectual property, access to knowledge, and global welfare.  He is currently leading research on the National Science Foundation funded Open Patent project, which explores the use of tagging and visualization technologies to improve understanding of information contained within patent documents.  

Previously, Christopher served as the founding manager of the historic Peer To Patent program, during which time he helped to develop, launch, and oversee the project through its first two pilot stages.  He has spoken extensively on the need to improve patent quality and his research has appeared in publications such as I/S: A Journal of Law and Policy for the Information Society, the International Free and Open Source Software Law Review, and The SciTech Lawyer, a publication of the American Bar Association.  He is also the founder and chair of Innovate / Activate, an unconference that explores the overlap between intellectual property and activism.
