Visualizing the Content and Context of Intellectual Property Law

One of the challenges of introducing technology and visualization into a research project is figuring out how to fit the techniques to the scholarship, rather than the other way around. Questions should drive the tool development, and the technology can inspire and allow new questions to be asked that may have never been considered before. I will present some details of the techniques and technologies I have recently been using to develop two prototype web-based text visualization tools driven by Katherine de Vos Devine's research into the rhetoric of fashion and intellectual property.
