By Lance Weiler, January 21st, 2009

This edition of TCIBR is brought to you by IndieFlix – Today we are joined by Lawrence Lessig to discuss his latest book “Remix – Making Art and Commerce Thrive in the Hybrid Economy.” In addition to being an author, Lessig is a Professor of Law at Stanford Law School and founder of the School’s Center for Internet and Society.

Book description from the book’s site -

“For more than a decade, we’ve been waging a war on our kids in the name of the 20th Century’s model of “copyright law.” In this, the last of his books about copyright, Lawrence Lessig maps both a way back to the 19th century, and to the promise of the 21st. Our past teaches us about the value in “remix.” We need to relearn the lesson. The present teaches us about the potential in a new “hybrid economy” — one where commercial entities leverage value from sharing economies. That future will benefit both commerce and community. If the lawyers could get out of the way, it could be a future we could celebrate.”


During the discussion a number of topics are covered such as remix culture, audience as creator, new models for copyright, sharecropping sites, and the creation of a remix cover right.
