Remix: Making Art and Commerce Thrive in the Hybrid Economy

Lawrence Lessig Remix

For more than a decade, we’ve been waging a war on our kids in the name of the 20th Century’s model of “copyright law.” In this, the last of his books about copyright, Lawrence Lessig maps both a way back to the 19th century, and to the promise of the 21st. Our past teaches us about the value in “remix.” We need to relearn the lesson. The present teaches us about the potential in a new “hybrid economy” — one where commercial entities leverage value from sharing economies. That future will benefit both commerce and community. If the lawyers could get out of the way, it could be a future we could celebrate. see more here - DOWNLOAD below - http://remix.lessig.org/

Lawrence Lessig is a Professor of Law at Stanford Law School and founder of the School’s Center for Internet and Society. Professor Lessig is the author of Code v2, Free Culture, The Future of Ideas and Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace, and has been a columnist for Wired, Red Herring, and the Industry Standard.

The power celebrity being able to get this in mainstream. The book Remix: Making Art and Commerce Thrive in the Hybrid Economy predicts this and does a good job of putting all this in context.
