Damn can this guy give a presentation. In case you are unfamiliar with Larry Lessig, he is a professor at Stanford Law School and was a founding board member of the Creative Commons. He is a strong proponent of reduced legal restrictions on copyright, trademark and radio frequency spectrum especially as it relates to technology applications. He was in the news several months ago for a silly controversy surrounding a mash-up video featured about mid way through this speech where Jesus Christ is depicted as a gay singer that eventually gets hit by a bus. Sadly the point of the lecture, that our youth's dynamic and creative relationship with media is different than anything we have experienced in our lifetimes, has not been covered as widely.
