Don’t call Eben Moglen a Marxist. The Columbia Law School professor does believe “the bourgeoisie” — namely, Microsoft Corp., The Walt Disney Co. Limited, the World Trade Organization, the U.S. Congress and the European Commission — form “an unholy alliance” controlling culture and information. And he does advocate for the abolition of all intellectual property laws. But he’s no Marxist. Moglen is a proud, self-proclaimed “dotCommunist,” who just happens to have some of the world’s biggest technology companies — Google Inc., IBM Corp., and Motorola Inc. — paying his bills.
Moglen’s official title is Professor of Law and Legal History. But the work he’s best known for focuses on freedom of expression in a digitized, online world. Moglen believes that his ideology will reshape almost all major industries — IT, music, media, telecom, electronics — and define the 21st century.
