Bios:
Victoria Stodden is a Postdoctoral Associate in Law and a Kauffman Fellow in Law at the Information Society Project at Yale Law School. After completing her PhD in statistics, she obtained a Master’s in Legal Studies in 2007 from Stanford Law School where she created a new licensing structure for computational research. Her paper proposing an Intellectual Property framework, called the Reproducible Research Standard, won the Kaltura Writing Competition, given in connection with the Third Conference on Access to Knowledge (A2K3) in 2008.??

Ethan Guillén has been with University's Allied for Access to Essential Medicines (UAEM) as its executive director since September 2007.  After receiving his bachelor’s degree in political science from Yale University in 2002, Ethan taught primary school in rural India.  UAEM's genesis was at Yale in 2001, when student Amy Kapczynski helped lead efforts that resulted in Yale University and Bristol-Myers Squibb permitting generic competition and providing steep price discounts for an important anti-AIDS drug (d4T) in South Africa.  UAEM now has chapters at many major research university's and works to promote socially responsible licensing of technologies.??

Shay David is the co-founder and VP of Business and Community Development of Kaltura, a software startup company. Kaltura is a leader in open-source video creation, discovery, and collaboration. Kaltura’s goal is to create the world’s first and largest network of legally sharable and remixable rich media content.  Shay is also a fellow at the Yale law school information society project.
