Ian Murphy is a PhD student in the Media and Technology Studies area.  His dissertation looks at the content distribution systems on which contemporary media industries are economically based. He is especially interested in the strategies that underlie the creation of these systems, the relations between “producers” and “consumers” that characterize them, and the legal implications of technological changes in these sectors (including issues surrounding copyright and net neutrality).
