The Code Threat to Free Culture
23 September 2004
George E. Pake Auditorium
Technologists promised a technological solution to the threat to copyright created by technology. Lawyer Lessig loves technology, and technologists. But in this lecture, he shows the threat to free culture that this technology promises.
Lawrence Lessig is a Professor of Law and John A. Wilson Distinguished Faculty Scholar at Stanford Law School. Professor Lessig is chairman of the board of Creative Commons and founder of the school?s Center for Internet and Society. He sits on the board of directors for the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and the Public Library of Science. In 2002, Lessig was named one of Scientific American's "Top 50 Innovators," and the American Bar Association recently awarded him the Cyberspace Law Excellence Award.
From 1991 to 1997, Lessig was a professor at the University of Chicago Law School. He then became the Berkman Professor of Law at Harvard Law School. In 1999-2000, he was a fellow at the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin before moving to Stanford in 2000.
Lessig teaches and writes in the areas of constitutional law, law and high technology, Internet regulation, comparative constitutional law, and the law of cyberspace. His book, Code, and Other Laws of Cyberspace, was published by Basic Books, and The Future of Ideas: The Fate of the Commons in a Connected World, is available from Random House.
