David Robinson discusses his new paper, "Following the Money: A Better Way Forward on the PROTECT IP Act". The bill, now being considered by Congress, targets “rouge” websites. Robinson discusses the different ways these websites host infringing content and sell counterfeit goods, as well as the remedies proposed in the bill. Robinson discusses why he thinks the Act will better serve IP law if the flow of money is restricted, and not the flow of information.
