Professor, Georgetown Law
Introduction
Google says this space is for making sure you've found the right Rebecca Tushnet.  There's only one Rebecca Tushnet.  Really.  So you've found the only one, though whether I'm right is more of a metaphysical question.  That said, I work on copyright, trademark, advertising, and First Amendment law.
