How Big Media Uses Technology and the Law to Lock Down Culture and Control Creativity

Lawrence Lessig, Professor at Stanford Law School and founder of the Center of Internet and Society. He brings us a new book called Free Culture, distributed under the Creative Commons license.

Lawrence Lessig shows us that while new technologies always lead to new laws, never before have the big cultural monopolists used the fear created by new technologies, specifically the Internet, to shrink the public domain of ideas, even as the same corporations use the same technologies to control more and more what we can and can’t do with culture.
