This is the personal site of Maarten Zeinstra, I’m a trained law scholar, philosopher of technology and software engineer. On this site you can find my résumé, posts and publications, and contact information.

I currently run my own one-man consultancy called IP Squared, I am the chairman of the Dutch Open Nederland association, and I am the Chapter Lead of Creative Commons Nederland.

My work revolves around the tension between the concepts of (online) ownership and access. In projects I usually take the position that society needs to put emphasis on ‘access to x’ instead of ‘ownership of x’.
