Robert Gomulkiewicz joined the University of Washington School of Law faculty in 2002 to direct the graduate program in Intellectual Property Law and Policy. He now serves as the Faculty Director of the Law, Technology & Arts Group and the Faculty Advisor for the Washington Law Review. Professor Gomulkiewicz's scholarship focuses on intellectual property licensing.
His publications include both a treatise and a casebook on licensing law, as well as numerous articles on mass market licensing and open source software. He is also the author of the Simple Public License (SimPL) which is a plain language rendering of the venerable GNU General Public License.
During the 2008-09 academic year he visited at Oxford University's Intellectual Property Research Centre. Prior to joining the faculty, he was Associate General Counsel at Microsoft where he led the group of lawyers providing legal counsel for development of Microsoft's major systems software, desktop applications, and developer tools software (including Windows and Office). He also served as chair of the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act (UCITA) working group of the Business Software Alliance. He joined Microsoft from the law firm of Preston, Gates & Ellis (now K&L Gates) where he represented developers and users of software and information products. While at Preston, Gates & Ellis, he worked on the Apple v. Microsoft case.
Mr. Gomulkiewicz received his B.A., magna cum laude, from Pacific Lutheran University and his M.A. from J.D. from the University of Washington.
He is a co-author of the Bloomberg BNA treatise Intellectual Property, Software, and Information Licensing: Law and Practice.
