With an interdisciplinary focus on network-mediated communication, creative industries and innovation policy, Kristofer Erickson’s research has been cited by Fortune Magazine, Wikimedia Foundation and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). From 2012-2015 he undertook ESRC-funded research on the value of the public domain, which was published in the Harvard Journal of Law and Technology. He is academic editor of Internet Policy Review, the peer-reviewed Open Journal on Internet Regulation, and co-founder of the Copyright Evidence Wiki, a data minable repository of empirical research on the role of intellectual property in society.

Research interests

Dr Erickson’s research applies theories of private-collective innovation and peer-production to understanding new forms of creative enterprise. He is interested in user-innovators and online user communities in contexts such as amateur video production (parody), digital games, mods and hacks, and collective projects such as Wikipedia. His research on Internet policy considers the effect of intellectual property and media regulation on new innovation practices. From 2016 he is carrying out research on the economic effects of digital rights management (DRM) systems. He supervises PhD students in law, communication and related disciplines.
