Biography: 

Trevor Reed is an Associate Professor of Law in the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University, where he teaches courses in Property, Intellectual Property, and Federal Indian Law. Dr. Reed’s research broadly explores the social impacts of intellectual property law on individual and group autonomy.  His current scholarship focuses on the linkages between creative production and Native American sovereignty.  His recent publications include Who Owns our Ancestors Voices? (Columbia Journal for Law and the Arts, Andrew Fried Prize), Reclaiming Ownership of the Indigenous Voice (Oxford Handbook of Musical Repatriation), and Sonic Sovereignty (Journal for the Society of American Music).  Forthcoming publications include articles in California Law Review, Journal of the Copyright Society (CSUSA), and Anthropological Quarterly.  Dr. Reed is currently advancing community-partnered projects to assist Indigenous peoples as they reclaim their cultural heritage, traditional knowledge, traditional cultural expressions, and other intellectual properties by strategically drawing on tribal, federal, and international law. Prior to joining the faculty at ASU, Reed taught in Columbia’s Core Curriculum and worked for Columbia's Copyright Advisory Office on the development of intellectual property rights automation.
