Here’s a great presentation by Lawrence Lessig about the changes we desperately need to have in copyright law. It’s beautifully done as a presentation (I’m guessing in Apple’s Keynote) and, though 45 minutes long, worth watching every minute of. It’s extremely entertaining and frequently very funny.
By the way, this video is not on YouTube because Warner Brothers issued a DCMA “take down” notice – though there doesn’t seem much doubt that this was unwarranted under standard fair use provisions of the existing copyright law.
The irony is that I would never have stumbled upon this if Ray Beckerman hadn’t linked to a site linking to it; and that site only linked to it because of the takedown notice. Go figure.
