Larry Lessig's talk on Aaron Swartz: livestream today at 5 eastern


Aaron's Laws: Law and Justice in a Digital Age

Lawrence Lessig: Director, Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics; Roy L. Furman Professor of Law and Leadership, Harvard Law School February 19, 2013 @ 05:00 PM

Harvard Law School will host a public lecture, "Aaron's Laws," by Lawrence Lessig on the occasion of his appointment as the Roy L. Furman Professor of Law and Leadership.

In the wake of the tragic death of social activist Aaron Swartz, many, including some in Washington, are asking how the law should respond. In this lecture -- radically personal, deeply non-disinterested -- Professor Lessig reflects on the life and work of Aaron Swartz, and how that work might be honored.

  1. Just finished watching this. Lessig is always a pleasure to listen to. Thanks Cory! Do we know if this will be available later as a download?

  2. Lessig already tweeted about it being online:

  3.  Is Lessig still insisting that what Swartz did in the JSTOR case was “morally wrong” (as he did on Democracy Now)? I don’t doubt that his personal grief is genuine, but Lessig’s political pragmatism makes him entirely the wrong person to be the public face of Swartz’s legacy.
