Lawrence Lessig's "Remix"

Lawrence Lessig's latest book, Remix: Making Art and Commerce Thrive in the Hybrid Economy, is now available from Amazon and other booksellers (and will soon be available under a Creative Commons license; see his website). Press materials: "For more than a decade, we’ve been waging a war on our kids in the name of the 20th Century’s model of 'copyright law.' In this, the last of his books about copyright, Lawrence Lessig maps both a way back to the 19th century, and to the promise of the 21st." Prof. Lessig was interviewed for Archival Storytelling.
