you must watch this excellent lecture by lawrence lessig on copyright law and the internet

Harvard Law Professor Lawrence Lessig

Harvard Law Professor Lawrence Lessig

i was fortunate to be in denver this past november for the 2009 educause conference. at the conference, harvard law professor lawrence lessig gave the keynote address on copyright law.

now, before you roll your eyes, let me say two things: first, it was one of the most compelling lectures i’ve ever heard. he gave a great message, had great supporting multimedia, and it was very well presented. second, if you are reading this on the internet, and if you are producing content on the web (like a blog, videos, etc.), then copyright is important to you.

listen and watch the lecture here.
