“In the digital age, every single thing we do with creative work on a digital network creates a copy,” Lawrence Lessig said in an NPR Fresh Air interview last month. “The act of reading on a digital network produces a copy.”
Lessig was promoting his new book, Remix: Making Art and Commerce Thrive in the Hybrid Economy. According to the NPR blurb:
law professor Lawrence Lessig explores the changing landscape of intellectual property in the digital age — and argues that antiquated copyright laws should be updated.
Lessig is a columnist for Wired and the chair of Creative Commons, a nonprofit organization that promotes the legal sharing, repurposing and remixing of creative work.
