In "Remix: Making Art and Commerce Thrive in the Hybrid Economy", Lawrence Lessig shows how we harm our children - and almost anyone who creates, enjoys, or sells any art form - with a restrictive copyright system driven by corporate interests.
In this new book, the acclaimed author of "Free Culture" reveals the solutions to this impasse offered by a collaborative yet profitable "hybrid economy."
He also discusses his new Change Congress movement, which aims to fight corruption in Congress- Booksmith
Lawrence Lessig is the Roy L. Furman Professor of Law and Leadership at Harvard Law School, the director of Harvard’s Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics, and the founder of Rootstrikers, a network of activists fighting corruption in politics. His books include "Republic, Lost: How Money Corrupts Our Congress—and a Plan to Stop It" and "One Way Forward: The Outsider’s Guide to Fixing the Republic."
Lawrence Lessig discusses the mounting public support to limit campaign donations and argues that the "deeply sick" state of the Republican Party offers conservatives a chance to regroup around such an atypical move.
"If there's anytime when it’s possible, it would be now," he says.
