Lawrence Lessig: The country of the blind

Writing about web page

  • Stop telling the world that we've invented something new and different: There's nothing new here
  • cultures have always evolved by remixing
  • In order to evolve and remix individuals need to be free to act creatively
  • When the tools of remix change, the freedoms must change too
  • Right now reuse of technology is not sufficiently free, because a remix requires a copy
  • Either we reform the law, or we reform the technology
  • ideas:
  • connect: to the old guard; call "piracy" wrong; we are not defending the right to copy against the copyright holder's wishes
  • teach: show people what technological remix is about
  • change: teach people how to change, not abolish, laws that don't work
