Copyright

Description

In this video interview, Lawrence Lessig speaks about the nature of copyright in the digital age. Speaking at the Search Engine Strategies Conference and Expo in Chicago, 2008, Lessig explains that due to our ability to produce infinite and vast numbers of copies, our current copyright laws are now outdated. He recommends creating a new architecture for copyright that functions more like a shared economy, than a motive to protect creators. The sharing economy best serves the public because it neither punishes the creator nor the consumer.
