Future of Ideas by Lawrence Lessig

Book Description

The Internet revolution has come. Some say it has gone. In The Future of Ideas, Lawrence Lessig explains how the revolution has produced a counterrevolution of potentially devastating power and effect. Creativity once flourished because the Net protected a commons on which widest range of innovators could experiment. But now, manipulating the law for their own purposes, corporations have established themselves as virtual gatekeepers of the Net while Congress, in the pockets of media magnates, has rewritten copyright and patent laws to stifle creativity and progress. Lessig weaves the history of technology and its relevant laws to make a lucid and accessible case to protect the sanctity of intellectual freedom. He shows how the door to a future of ideas is being shut just as technology is creating extraordinary possibilities that have implications for all of us. Vital, eloquent, judicious and forthright, The Future of Ideas is a call to arms that we can ill afford to ignore.

Books By Author Lawrence Lessig

Republic, Lost by Lawrence Lessig Republic, Lost, Hardback (October 2015)

Five years after Citizens United, political financing has become one, giant corrupt cash grab. In this entirely new edition, Harvard Law professor Lawrence Lessig exposes the most vexing problem in American democracy and offers a new plan to save our lost republic.

Good Faith Collaboration by Lawrence Lessig Good Faith Collaboration, Paperback (October 2012)

How Wikipedia collaboration addresses the challenges of openness, consensus, and leadership in a historical pursuit for a universal encyclopedia.

Remix by Lawrence Lessig Remix, Paperback (October 2008)

Lessig highlights the newest cultural war being waged on those who create and consume art. Arguing that we reject a copyright system that criminalizes the value of protecting art, he offers an inspiring vision of the post-war world where opportunities await those who view art as a resource to be shared openly rather than a commodity to be hoarded.
