Interview With Lawrence Lessig

from the scared-of-dinosaurs dept

Business Week has a good interview with Lawrence Lessig where he again points out that we’re in danger of having “dinosaurs” control the internet. He says that Jack Valenti and Hilary Rosen have convinced Congress that we have a binary choice between “copy protection” and “no copy protection”. He also gives his suggestions for avoiding a situation where innovation becomes difficult (where the big media companies control everything). As with anything from Lessig, it’s an interesting read.
