Lessig's Harvard Law lecture: "Aaron's Law"

Larry Lessig's Harvard Law address, "Aaron's Laws - Law and Justice in a Digital Age" is a riveting, bittersweet talk on the state of Internet law, and law in general, and, always, corruption, money and the abuse of power. If you want to understand how our world got to its present messed-up state, look no further. Then do something about it.

Lessig on "Aaron's Laws - Law and Justice in a Digital Age"


  1. I got to see this in person.  Thanks extended to Harvard for making it available for those that couldn’t make it.   Yes, its long.  Watch it anyway, its worth it.  You can skip to 8:50 and bypass the introduction.

  2. I know this is an odd comment, but I don’t believe I’ve ever seen Lessig make this sort of public appearance in jeans before.

    EDIT: Oh, wait–that guy early in the video isn’t him. I figured I’d seen him often enough to recognize him without seeing his face. Never mind.

  3. Wow. I’ve been following along, trying to understand, and to really feel a real, personal impact of Aaron’s loss, but it took this speech to bring it out. I think I really understand it now, and I understand more what kind of person Aaron was. He could not stomach the wrongness of what was going on around him, and he was determined to do something about it. And he did. More, I think he was able to point it out to others in a way that made them similarly unable to put up with the mess, and those people will continue his fight until.

    Thanks for posting this; I probably would have missed it otherwise.
