Dr David Erdos

Steering Committee Member

Centre for Intellectual Property and Information Law


Dr David Erdos is Deputy Director of the Centre for Intellectual Property and Information Law (CIPIL) and University Senior Lecturer in Law and the Open Society in the Faculty of Law.  He is also WYNG Fellow in Law at Trinity Hall.  David’s principal research interests focuses on data protection looking especially at how to reconcile this with freedom of expression in the areas of journalism, academic scholarship and social media.  This work intersects with debates on internet governance generally including, in particular, the liability and responsibility of “intermediary” actors such as Facebook and Google.  David’s work has been published widely in leading legal and socio-legal journals including the Cambridge Law Journal, the Common Market Law Review, Public Law and the Journal of Law and Society.
