My research interests are international political economy of communication, critical media studies, and new social movements around cyberliberties. My first book, with Tom McCourt, was Digital Music Wars: Ownership and Control of the Celestial Jukebox. My second book was Music and Cyberliberties. I am now preparing a manuscript on the Swedish Pirate Party called Pirate Politics. I have also researched and published on enterprise content management software, video game design, and telecommunications infrastructures.
