Is the Internet Running Out of IP Addresses? - David Post

Complete video at: Law professor David Post claims that the original 4 billion unique Internet Protocol (IP) addresses are running out, and that the Internet will soon face a crisis unless a new version of the fundamental IP is enacted. "It will change the we know it in many profound ways," he says of the new IP. ----- In his new book, In Search of Jefferson's Moose: Notes on the State of Cyberspace, David Post draws remarkable and entertaining parallels between the Internet and the natural and intellectual landscape that Thomas Jefferson explored, documented, and shaped. Creatively drawing on Jefferson's Notes on the State of Virginia, Post describes how the Internet functions technically and applies Jefferson's views on natural history, law, and governance to the unfolding complexities of cyberspace. Jefferson's Moose is a book for both fans of Thomas Jefferson and for fans of the Internet, each of whom should know more about the other topic. -- Cato Institute David Post is currently the I. Herman Stern Professor of Law at the Beasley School of Law at Temple University, where he teaches intellectual property law and the law of cyberspace. Professor Post is also an Adjunct Scholar at the Cato Institute, a Fellow at the Institute for Information Law and Policy at New York Law School, and a contributor to the influential Volokh Conspiracy blog. Prior to joining the Temple Law School faculty in 1997, Professor Post clerked with then-Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, and he spent 6 years at the Washington D.C. law firm of Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering, practicing in the areas of intellectual property law and high technology commercial transactions. He then clerked again for Justice Ginsburg during her first term on the Supreme Court before joining the faculty of Georgetown University Law Center (1994 - 1997).
