Its president and co-founder is Gigi Sohn, Peter Suber is director of its open access project, and its directors include MIT professor Hal Abelson, Stanford Law professor Lawrence Lessig, and former FCC chairman Reed Hund. Public Knowledge's work focuses on the three 'IP's of communications and copyright policy: information policy, intellectual property, and Internet protocol.
