About me

I am interested in copyright law/policy, bicycling, and open source projects.

As a volunteer, I am User:Slaporte. My home wikis are the English Wikipedia and Wikisource.

I graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the University of California, Hastings College of the Law. I am licensed to practice law in California.

My work

I work on trademarks, contracts, content, community questions, and wide range of other legal issues.

Although I work for the Wikimedia Foundation, contributions under this account do not necessarily represent the actions or views of the Foundation unless expressly stated otherwise. For example, edits to articles or uploads of other media are done in my individual, personal capacity unless otherwise stated. The legal team can only represent the Wikimedia Foundation on legal matters, so we are unable to give legal advice to others, including community members, editors, or contributors. Communications with members of the legal team are not consultations and do not create any confidential relationship.
