Kirk Sigmon has accepted a 2022-2023 Thomas Edison Innovation Law and Policy Fellowship at the Center for Intellectual Property x Innovation Policy (C-IP2) at George Mason University, Antonin Scalia Law School.
C-IP2’s Thomas Edison Innovation Law and Policy Fellowship Program is a fellowship program for scholars working in economics, history, law, and philosophy, studying either innovation generally or intellectual property and policy specifically. This will be the eighth round of the Edison fellowship.
Kirk will be using the fellowship as an opportunity to research the implications of what happens when consumers can remaster copyrighted material in a technologically superior format offered by rightsholders. For example, Kirk’s research will review how consumers are beginning to decompile popular video games, such as Nintendo’s Super Mario 64, and execute those games on modern computer hardware.
