Larry Lessig: How creativity is being strangled by the law

via Ayende @ Rahien:

Although the content of Larry’s talk is well worth watching it

He pins down the key shortcomings of our dusty, pre-digital intellectual property laws, and reveals how bad laws beget bad code. Then, in an homage to cutting-edge artistry, he throws in some of the most hilarious remixes you’ve ever seen.

it is the show that impressed me most.

Larry uses a style (slides & talk), which most of you might already know from the Identity 2.0 talk by Dick Hardt. What sets them apart (at least from my point of view) is that Dick is overdoing it (a bit) and Larry seems to have found the right doses (for me).

Anyhow, the show is a must-see!
