Lawrence Lessig at Educause

on November 8, 2009

Lawrence Lessig, the Harvard University law professor and renowned open-access advocate, told a theater of higher ed technologists at the 2009 Educause Conference

“If copyright law, at its core, regulates something called ‘copies,’ then in the analog world… many uses of culture were copyright-free,” he explained. “They didn’t trigger copyright law, because no copy was made. But in the digital world, very few uses are copyright-free because in the digital world … all uses produce a copy.”

Lessig also cited several examples of how copyright law in academe has hampered the pursuit of knowledge.
