Product Description

Review

"Lawrence Lessig is a prophet for the Internet age. . . . A splendidly combative manifesto-pungent, witty and persuasive."
-"Financial Times"
" Once dubbed a 'philosopher king of Internet law, ' [Lessig] writes with a unique mix of legal expertise, historic facts, and cultural curiosity. . . . The result is a wealth of interesting examples and theories on how and why digital technology and copyright law can promote professional and amateur art."
-"Time"

Having just received Lessig's latest title through the mail on Monday I have been reading his position of taking the old and creating the new with great interest. Trying to understand how and why big media congolomerates and their "copyrighted" ways approach is measured with such extreme enforcement boggles the mind -- free exchange, with 'some rights reserved' is the way forward. I salute the Creative Commons movement that Lessig helped pioneer over 7 years ago and can't wait for this title to be available under that license. Soon you'll be able to read this title for free, share it, remix it and make something new...but in the end you'll want your own copy too.

Just finished reading Lessig's latest book. I've been widely fascinated by his earlier work, but this one falls short compared to his other work on the subject of copyright in modern society. The first two parts is more or less just rehashing of old ideas, while the last part, about the future, is where the book really shines. More specifically it mentions five ways in which we can actually change copyright to make it better suited for the world we live in now.

He presents an interesting story about the problems they had in the southern states of America with racial discrimination. The problem was that if stores opened their doors to African Americans then they would be seen as pro-black and loose a lot of their original business. So in 1964 (!) a law was passed that made discrimination in public restaurants and other related establishments a felony. This changed the game completely. This reminds me of a law that was passed not that long ago in Denmark, that made smoking in the same kind of places a felony.

a short review ....

this is only an ok-ish intro book to the digital world of "appropriating" others music + images remixing them for "amateur" use, but nothing to do with the art world whatsover as depicited on the cover - so beware. directed at teens + twentysomething's burning others copyrighted music or video files on-line + how copyright might be reedefined for the future to offset the present use of such on-line creativity. the altruistic element of fileshare sites , as well as wikipedia + amazon is discussed also - where online reviewers (hey such as myself) enjoy sharing not only files but opinions online with others - as part of the burgeoning hybrid economy. certainly a zeitgeist subject + expanding soical mode of expression but this book over fixates on the copyright legalities without much flourish or wider view of where the ne wopportun ites offered on line for creative file sharing is taking us.

worthy but overlong + a bit repetitive...
