Michael Mattioli lecturing at Indiana University (2014)

Michael Mattioli is an Associate Professor of Law at the Indiana University Maurer School of Law in Bloomington. He teaches Contracts and several courses in Intellectual Property, including the IP Survey, the IP Colloquium, and IP Transactions. Mattioli is also an active affiliated faculty member of the Center for Intellectual Property Research.

Professor Mattioli’s scholarship explores the implications of private ordering on innovation policy and theory. This theme canvases a variety of topics, including the structure, governance, and antitrust implications of patent pools, how information transactions influence innovation generally, the ascendance of new kinds of intellectual property consortia, and most recently, the challenges of aggregating, standardizing, and reusing Big Data.
Before coming to Indiana University, Mattioli was the 2011-12 Microsoft Research Fellow at the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology at UC Berkeley School of Law and the 2010-11 Postdoctoral Fellow in Law, Economics, and Technology at the University of Michigan Law School. Mattioli is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Law School and Tufts University. Before attending law school, Mattioli was employed as an ASIC microchip designer at Sun Microsystems (acquired by Oracle Corporation in 2010).
