about

My name is Parker Higgins, and this is my website. I am interested in the theory and practice of copyright, and how it interacts with creativity. More generally, I like to think and write about questions of speech and privacy and technology.

From 2011–2017 I worked as an activist at the Electronic Frontier Foundation. I also previously served on the board of the international student group Students for Free Culture. Now I am the Director of Special Projects at the Freedom of the Press Foundation.

I am a 2010 graduate of NYU Gallatin, where I concentrated in Creativity, Freedom of Speech, and Intellectual Property. For a while I lived in Berlin and worked for SoundCloud. I like public transportation systems and their maps, kite aerial photography, vegetarian food, and good science fiction.
