Lawrence Lessig Remix Commentary on Copyright

Lawrence Lessig, a law professor at Stanford, recently said,

If you come to the Net armed with the idea that the old system of copyright is going to work just fine here, this more than anything is going to get you to recognize: you need some new ideas.

To illustrate the point, he uses this remix by Ophir Kutiel of Israel, where I’m currently studying law.


  1. Kutiel is fascinating. He was the subject of a Friday Fillip in April. If you want to read more of Lessig on remixing, the book is free, as I pointed out in an entry here.

  2. I knew I had seen Kutiel’s name somewhere before – no surprise that it was right here on Slaw.
