Who or what is a “user”? Users are largely absent from black letter copyright law, in stark contrast to our well developed theories and explanations of the author. In trying to understand the origins and definitions of users, we can turn to another text - namely, private ordering mechanisms, such as end user licensing agreements. As such, this presentation suggests a post-structuralist approach to defining the user as a by-product of private law.
