Tim Carter is a writer, musician, programmer and alternative IP enthusiast. He plans to attend law school in the fall of 2013 to pursue a career in Intellectual Property Law. His areas of research include (but are certainly not limited to) the fair use doctrine, the first sale doctrine, patent protection as it relates to software programs, and the seemingly incomprehensible emergence of patents in the field of mathematics.

His current areas of interest center around the physical sciences and he’s in the process of teaching himself (quite painfully) classical mechanics and the foundations of mechanical engineering.

In his spare time, Tim moonlights as a programmer and web designer comfortable in Java, PHP  and MYSQL. Additionally, he’s in the process of teaching himself (once again, quite painfully) Python and Javascript.

Tim was born in Florida, grew up in New Jersey, and graduated Magna Cum Laude from Loyola University of New Orleans with a BS in Music Business and Music w/ Elective Studies (emphasis in jazz performance).
