Larry Lessig’s last lecture on Free Culture

This lecture is impressive. Larry talks about the war that we (well: the US congress) are inadvertently raging against “our kids”. How we are criminalising a whole generation that express their creativity through mash-up as they use copyrighted content. How these crimes are based on congress decisions that make no logical sense and are only influenced by money. And how this corruption is not just reflected in the problems we have with copyright, but also in e.g. our late reactions to global warming, or in the way in which academia, the medical profession, medical research, and other areas work.

I know it’s a long lecture, so if you just want to watch the main message, download the file and just watch the last quarter. A highly intellectual voice for humanity.
