Larry Lessig’s latest book, “The Future of Ideas” is available as a free download.
Lessig, who founded Creative Commons and is no stranger to Internet-related controversy, argues that old-style institutions are killing the free flow of ideas by using legal and technological means to protect their online territory.
From the book’s website:
“The choice Lawrence Lessig presents is not between progress and the status quo. It is between progress and a new Dark Ages, in which our capacity to create is confined by an architecture of control and a society more perfectly monitored and filtered than any before in history.”
Should be good reading, and good food for thought.
