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.
