How Creativity is Being Strangled by the Law

Since it’s Independence Day in the US, allow me to share a rousing talk about independence — specifically, creative independence. Creative Commons founder Larry Lessig spoke at TED about how creativity is being strangled by the law.

This is certainly no dry academic lecture: Lessig throws in Muppet Hunter D, Dancing Jesus, and Singing Bush. Watch, laugh, and free your mind.

  1. Thanks, Sir Mike!

    Sure, offline media often underestimates what online media can do, and often turns out to be less capable than online media. Even though some stuff in media online is taken from offline media, most of online and offline media are their own products. Take YouTube for example : It has TV-show episodes in there. What for? So fans or those who missed that episode can watch it. Why go through the trouble of recording and posting it? So many others would enjoy it.
