This is my link blog. I'm an attorney who represents individuals and privately held businesses, including those operating in the the fields of technology/internet/media. The legal services that I provide include general business counseling, cyberlaw, M&A and venture formation and finance. I am a former outside general and securities counsel to a number of publicly held entertainment and media companies, and I hold degrees from Stanford University and The University of Chicago Law School.

At the European Commission website: the proposal and a host of related materials.
