About me

Martin Husovec [pronounce as Husovets, or Husoveck] is an Associate Professor of Law at The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). His scholarship deals with questions of innovation policy and digital liberties, particularly intellectual property law, platform regulation, and freedom of expression. Martin is currently finalising a book about European regulation of digital platforms, entitled “Principles of the Digital Services Act” (Oxford University Press).

Martin obtained his Ph.D. from the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition, and Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich for his work on injunctions against intermediaries (published with Cambridge University Press, 2017). Between 2015-2020, he was Assistant Professor at Tilburg University, the Netherlands, appointed jointly by Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology, and Society (TILT) and Tilburg Law and Economics Center (TILEC). He held visiting appointments at Stanford Law School (2014), the Japanese Institute for Intellectual Property (2015), the Central European University (2018) the European University Institute (2018), and Cambridge University (2019). He remains to be fellow at CREATe, and TILEC. Martin is also a member of the European Copyright Society (ECS), a group of prominent European copyright scholars, and a book reviews editor at the International Journal of Law and Information Technology.

Together with his students, Martin has filed almost a dozen amicus curiae briefs before the European Court of Human Rights in key cases dealing with digital freedom of expression. He previously acted as an advisor to the President of the Slovak Constitutional Court, national ministries in Europe and Asia, and various EU institutions in the areas of intellectual property, freedom of expression, and privacy.
