Lessig's Future of Ideas goes Creative Commons

Larry Lessig's magnificent book The Future of Ideas is now available as a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial licensed download. Future of Ideas is a grim and prescient look at the way that corporate interests have rigged the system so that they can own more and more of our thoughts, ideas and conversations -- from banning you from taking pictures of your car and distributing it to pulling down youtubes of toddlers dancing to copyrighted music. Seven years after its publication, Future of Ideas is still as relevant as it was the day it was printed.

This marks a milestone for Lessig as well: now that Future of Ideas is online, all of Larry's books are now free CC downloads. Link

  1. Does anyone else find it funny that at the top and bottom of the image of the book it states “Copyrighted Material” ?
