Brad Biddle is a Research Fellow with the Center for the Study of Law, Science and Technology. His research focus is on public policy issues associated with biofuels in Arizona. He is leading a project called the Desert Biofuels Initiative and organizing a workshop focused on the development of a biofuels infrastructure in the Phoenix metro area.
Brad is also currently a non-residential Fellow at Stanford Law School's Center for Internet and Society. Brad's research with Stanford, also being pursued in his role as Research Fellow at ASU, focuses on the economic value of a particular component of copyright fair use. His goal is to develop an economic model to quantify the value associated with "flexible" copyright (copyright regimes that permit personal use copying) and to then use that economic model to estimate potential opportunity costs associated with "maximalist" copyright (copyright regimes that restrict such copies). His expectation is that the research will demonstrate that flexible copyright regimes provide net economic benefits over maximalist regimes, in addition to providing non-economic social and political benefits.
During the Spring semester of 2008 Brad is on sabbatical from Intel Corporation, where he is the lead attorney for Intel's Systems Technology Lab. Brad leads Intel's involvement with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and is involved with a wide variety of copyright policy and open source issues for Intel. Brad's work with Stanford and ASU reflects his own personal interests and is not affiliated with Intel.
