Lawrence Lessig Speaks Once Again About Copyright and Creativity

Last year, Lawrence Lessig, a law pro­fes­sor at Stan­ford, gave what was sup­posed to be his last talk on the mod­ern copy­right regime that once ben­e­fit­ed cre­ativ­i­ty but now sti­fles it and brings big bucks to cor­po­ra­tions. But, at EDUCAUSE last week, he came back as the keynote speak­er and returned to these still-burn­ing issues once again. Lessig has post­ed his art­ful­ly pre­sent­ed talk online, and you can now watch it above.

PS Once you start the video, it will take a lit­tle while for you to see any­thing.
