Remix

Aw, Lawrence Lessig, always a treat to read one of his books.

In this book, labeled Remix, Lessig talks about “Remix Culture” and how the law regulates it.

He makes an interesting argument how some forms of remxing are accepted (such as using quotes in an essay) and how some are not (using lyrics from a song in a new song).

He goes on to mention “hybrid economies” where read-write and read-only culture can converge and co-exist.

I’ve read every book Mr. Lessig has published and I find this one just as informative as the rest of his collection. Though, this book does posess similarities to Kembrew McCleod’s “Freedom of Expression” reviewed back in September.
