Roy Freed Bio

For his first 20 years as a lawyer, Roy Freed practiced antitrust and anti-monopoly litigation for the US Department of Justice, and then for private litigants represented by law firms. His cases ranged from distribution of radios, telephones, tires and batteries to the international marketing of alkalies.Roy’s engineering aptitude enabled him to recognize both the nature and significance of computers immediately upon their commercialization in 1960. He introduced computer law to the world to identify and handle legal issues pertaining to their use and availability. He remained the international guru of computer law until his retirement in 1986. He had traveled internationally, delivering keynotes to diverse audiences on the subject. Roy lent his legal expertise for a manufacturer of mini-computers, a private practice in Boston and spent seven years as a lecturer at Boston University Law School.Upon his retirement, he discovered his unusual creative mind as a cherished resource and the great pleasure from using it for deep thinking. Roy’s fascination with the mind led him to derive independently his unique functional perception of the always active mind for the general public. He did this through drawing a broad analogy to it from computers. He writes and lectures extensively about this subject, which parallels neuroscientific research on the brain.Roy and his late wife of 71 years traveled abroad often while he taught, in London, Tokyo and Shanghai. In May and June 1989, he and his wife were Fullbright Teaching Fellows at Bulgaria’s Sophia University in their respective fields of clinical social work and law. In 1990 he consulted on legal protection of software programs with the Bulgarian democratic government. In 1995, Bulgarian President Petur Stoyanov named both Roy and his wife Cavaliers of the Madara Horseman, First Degree – Bulgaria’s highest civilian recognition – for their contributions to Bulgaria’s science and education fields.In 2007, Roy and his wife published their partial memoir, “Fullbrighters in Bulgaria: Networking with Bulgarians Keeps Us Engaged.”At 96, Roy continues to speak professionally in the Boston area and blogs. He also interviews guests on the “Roy Freed Show” for Canton Community TV.Contact a speaker booking agent to check availability on Roy Freed and other top speakers and celebrities.
