Free culture : how big media uses technology and the law to lock down culture and control creativity by Lawrence Lessig( Book )

18 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in English and Chinese and held by 2,091 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lawrence Lessig, "the most important thinker on intellectual property in the Internet era" (The New Yorker), is often called our leading cultural environmentalist. His focus is the ecosystem of creativity, the environment created around it by technology and law. To read Free Culture is to understand that the health of that ecosystem is in grave peril. While new technologies always lead to new laws, Lessig shows that never before have the big cultural monopolists drummed up such unease about these advances, especially the Internet, to shrink the public domain while using the same advances to control what we can and can't do with the culture all around us. What's at stake is our freedom -- freedom to create, freedom to build, and, ultimately, freedom to imagine
The future of ideas : the fate of the commons in a connected world by Lawrence Lessig( Book )

51 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in 6 languages and held by 2,037 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The future of ideas, Lawrence Lessig explains how the Internet revolution has produced a counterrevolution of potentially devastating power and effect. Creativity once flourished because the Net protected a commons on which innovators could experiment. But now, manipulating the law for their own purposes, corporations have established themselves as virtual gatekeepers of the Net while Congress, in the pockets of media magnates, has rewritten copyright and patent laws to stifle creativity and progress. Lessig weaves the history of technology and its relevant laws to make a lucid and accessible case to protect the sanctity of intellectual freedom. He shows how the door to a future of ideas is being shut just as technology is creating extraordinary possibilities that have implications for all of us
Remix : making art and commerce thrive in the hybrid economy by Lawrence Lessig( Book )

43 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: The author of Free Culture shows how we harm our children-and almost anyone who creates, enjoys, or sells any art form-with a restrictive copyright system driven by corporate interests. Lessig reveals the solutions to this impasse offered by a collaborative yet profitable "hybrid economy". Lawrence Lessig, the reigning authority on intellectual property in the Internet age, spotlights the newest and possibly the most harmful culture war-a war waged against our kids and others who create and consume art. America's copyright laws have ceased to perform their original, beneficial role: protecting artists' creations while allowing them to build on previous creative works. In fact, our system now criminalizes those very actions. For many, new technologies have made it irresistible to flout these unreasonable and ultimately untenable laws. Some of today's most talented artists are felons, and so are our kids, who see no reason why they shouldn't do what their computers and the Web let them do, from burning a copyrighted CD for a friend to "biting" riffs from films, videos, songs, etc and making new art from them. Criminalizing our children and others is exactly what our society should not do, and Lessig shows how we can and must end this conflict-a war as ill conceived and unwinnable as the war on drugs. By embracing "read-write culture," which allows its users to create art as readily as they consume it, we can ensure that creators get the support-artistic, commercial, and ethical-that they deserve and need. Indeed, we can already see glimmers of a new hybrid economy that combines the profit motives of traditional business with the "sharing economy" evident in such Web sites as Wikipedia and YouTube. The hybrid economy will become ever more prominent in every creative realm-from news to music-and Lessig shows how we can and should use it to benefit those who make and consume culture. Remix is an urgent, eloquent plea to end a war that harms our children and other intrepid creative users of new technologies. It also offers an inspiring vision of the post-war world where enormous opportunities await those who view art as a resource to be shared openly rather than a commodity to be hoarded

The boy who could change the world : the writings of Aaron Swartz by Aaron Swartz( Book )

14 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and French and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his too-short life, Aaron Swartz reshaped the Internet, questioned our assumptions about intellectual property, and touched all of us in ways that we may not even realize. His tragic suicide in 2013 at the age of twenty-six after being aggressively prosecuted for copyright infringement shocked the nation and the world. Here for the first time in print is revealed the quintessential Aaron Swartz: besides being a technical genius and a passionate activist, he was also an insightful, compelling, and cutting essayist. With a technical understanding of the Internet and of intellectual property law surpassing that of many seasoned professionals, he wrote thoughtfully and humorously about intellectual property, copyright, and the architecture of the Internet. He wrote as well about unexpected topics such as pop culture, politics both electoral and idealistic, dieting, and lifehacking. Including three in-depth and previously unpublished essays about education, governance, and cities, The Boy Who Could Change the World contains the life's work of one of the most original minds of our time"--
America, compromised by Lawrence Lessig( Book )

4 editions published between 2018 and 2020 in English and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Of all the grievances driving voters to antiestablishment candidates, the loss of faith in institutions may be the most widely shared--and most justifiable. In fact, 'there is not a single American awake to the world who is comfortable with the way things are.' So begins Lawrence Lessig's sweeping indictment of contemporary American institutions and the corruption that burdens them. We can all see it--from the selling of Congress to special interests to the corporate capture of the academy. There is something wrong that goes deeper than populism and demagoguery. And it's our fault. What Lessig shows, brilliantly and persuasively, is that we can't blame the problems of contemporary American life on bad people, as the pundits all too often tend to do. Rather, he explains, 'We have allowed core institutions of America's economic, social, and political life to become corrupted. Not by evil souls, but by good souls. Not through crime, but through compromise.' Every one of us, every day, making the modest compromises that seem necessary to keep moving along, is contributing to the rot at the core of American civic life. Through case studies of Congress, finance, the academy, the media, and the law, Lessig shows how institutions are drawn away from higher purposes and toward money, power, quick rewards--the first steps to corruption. Lessig knows that a charge so broad should not be levied lightly, and that our instinct will be to resist it. So he brings copious, damning detail gleaned from years of research, building a case that is all but incontrovertible: America is on the wrong path. If we don't acknowledge our own part in that, and act now to change it, we will had our children a less perfect union than we were given. It will be a long struggle. This book represents the first steps"--Jacket
Free culture : the nature and future of creativity by Lawrence Lessig( Book )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and Chinese and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lawrence Lessig, the most important thinker on intellectual property in the Internet era (The New Yorker), masterfully argues that never before in human history has the power to control creative progress been so concentrated in the hands of the powerful few, the so-called Big Media. Never before have the cultural powers- that-be been able to exert such control over what we can and cant do with the culture around us. Our society defends free markets and free speech; why then does it permit such top-down control? To lose our long tradition of free culture, Lawrence Lessig shows us, is to lose our freedom to create, our freedom to build, and, ultimately, our freedom to imagine."--Book cover

Republic lost : the corruption of equality and the steps to end it by Lawrence Lessig( Book )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and Chinese and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an era when special interests funnel huge amounts of money into our government-driven by shifts in campaign-finance rules and brought to new levels by the Supreme Court in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission-trust in our government has reached an all-time low. More than ever before, Americans believe that money buys resuits in Congress, and that business interests wield control over our legislature. With heartfelt urgency and a keen desire for righting wrongs, Harvard law professor Lawrence Lessig takes a clear-eyed look at how we arrived at this crisis: how fundamentally good people, with good intentions, have allowed our democracy to be co-opted by outside interests, and how this exploitation has become entrenched in the system. Rejecting simple labels and reductive logic-and instead using examples that resonate as powerfully on the Right as on the Left-Lessig seeks out the root causes of our situation. He plumbs the issues of campaign financing and corporate lobbying, revealing the human faces and follies that have allowed corruption to take such a foothold in our system. He puts the issues in terms that nonwonks can understand, using real-world analogies and real human stories. And ultimately he calls for widespread mobilization and a new Constitutional Convention, presenting achievable solutions for regaining control of our corrupted-but redeemable-representational system. In this way, Lessig plots a roadmap for returning our republic to its intended greatness. While America may be divided, Lessig vividly champions the idea that we can succeed if we accept that corruption is our common enemy and that we must find a way to fight against it. In REPUBLIC, LOST, he not only makes this need palpable and clear-he gives us the practical and intellectual tools to do something about it
Fidelity & constraint : how the Supreme Court has read the American constitution by Lawrence Lessig( Book )

6 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The fundamental fact about our Constitution is that it is old--the oldest written constitution in the world. The fundamental challenge for interpreters of the Constitution is how to read that old document over time. In Fidelity & Constraint, legal scholar Lawrence Lessig explains that one of the most basic approaches to interpreting the constitution is the process of translation. Indeed, some of the most significant shifts in constitutional doctrine are products of the evolution over time of the translation process. In every new era, judges understand their translations as instances of "interpretive fidelity," framed within each new temporal context. Yet, as Lessig also argues, there is a repeatedly occurring countermove that upends the process of translation. Throughout American history, there has been a second fidelity in addition to interpretive fidelity: what Lessig calls "fidelity to role." In each of the cycles of translation that he describes, the role of the judge--the ultimate translator--has evolved too. Old ways of interpreting the text now become illegitimate because they do not match up with the judge's perceived role. And when that conflict occurs, the practice of judges within our tradition has been to follow the guidance of a fidelity to role. Ultimately, Lessig not only shows us how important the concept of translation is to constitutional interpretation, but also exposes the institutional limits on this practice. The first work of both constitutional and foundational theory by one of America's leading legal minds, Fidelity & Constraint maps strategies that both help judges understand the fundamental conflict at the heart of interpretation whenever it arises and work around the limits it inevitably creates"--

Les Golems du numérique : droit d'auteur et Lex Electronica by Mélanie Dulong de Rosnay( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : " Le droit d'auteur, élaboré sur les fondements analogiques de la rareté du support, est remis en question par le numérique, qui s'appuie sur la copie, la réappropriation et le partage. Il a été adapté au rythme des innovations techniques de reproduction et de diffusion et peut conduire aussi bien au contrôle de l'accès qu'à la constitution de biens communs. Les processus d'élaboration des normes et standards techniques et d'extension des droits ont été pensés de manière indépendante, entraînant des tensions entre les industries culturelles et les droits du public. L'ouvrage propose un modèle techno-juridique de la régulation du partage de la culture. Fondé sur la lex informatica, il intègre code juridique et code informatique pour exprimer les informations sur les droits et élargir les catégories actuelles du droit d'auteur pour faciliter l'utilisation, la création et le partage non marchand. Ce livre est basé sur plus de dix ans de participation à la régulation juridique et technique du droit d'auteur. Co-fondatrice et responsable juridique de Creative Commons France au CERSA (CNRS Université Paris II) entre 2003 et 2013, l'auteure a pris part à la standardisation technique MPEG (ISO), à deux commissions du CSPLA (ministère de la Culture) et à des travaux de l'OMPI (Nations unies) avec le statut d'observateur en tant que présidente de Communia, l'association internationale pour le domaine public numérique."
