Grab, remix, and enjoy – says Lessig

10Jan09

lessig&colbertFrom EFF’s website: “Last night, Larry Lessig, a close ally and former board member of EFF, chatted with Stephen Colbert about Lessig’s new book Remix, and how America’s broken copyright laws are criminalizing our kids.

Colbert: Nobody should take my work and do anything with it that is not approved! Ever ever never ever take anything of mine and remix it! For instance, I will be very angry and possibly litigious if anyone out there takes this interview right here and remixes it with some great dance beat. And it starts showing up in clubs across America.
Lessig: Actually, we’re joint copyright owners. I’m ok with that. You can totally remix this. I’m fine with that. UPDATE: And remix was: many people remixed that interview, check them out!
