Lessig’s Remix Available Under CC License

Professor Larry Lessig’s recent book, Remix: Making Art and Commerce Thrive in the Hybrid Economy, has been released under a Creative Commons license and is available as a free download from Bloomsbury Academic. You can, as well, purchase a hardback version and an e-book version.

The book is divided into the following chapters (a more detailed TOC is available on the book’s website):

Chapter 1: The Cultures of our Past
Chapter 2: Cultures of our Future
Chapter 3: RO [Read-only], Extended
Chapter 4: RW [Read/Write], Revived
Chapter 5: Cultures Compared
Chapter 6: Two Economies: Commercial and Sharing
Chapter 7: Hybrid Economies
Chapter 8: Economy Lessons
Chapter 9: Reforming Law
Chapter 10: Reforming Us

The book has had a mixed reception — see the excerpts from reviews put up by Lessig himself — but at the price it’s hard to say you shouldn’t give it a go if IP is at all of interest to you.
