Lawrence Lessig professor of law at Stanford Law School and founder of its Center for Internet and Society. He’s leading the conversation about the challenges of intellectual property and copyright in the digital age. From his blog:
The band Beatnik Turtle has released an “Indie Band Survival Guide” (free, as in CC). They’ve also now practiced an important virtue. A fan complained that he had purchased BT music through the new Napster. But when he stopped paying, the music went away. BT has sent the fan a free album. A lesson taught well.
Lessig is shaping the musical landscape. Pay attention to him.
