Here's just one quote, a small sampling of the original ideas and fresh words in the article.
Lessig explains this idea: 'The fight against feudalism was the fight against property regimes that had become so expansive and cumbersome that they choked off innovation and competitive growth. Much of the progress of the common law in England was the process of limiting the burdens of property law, so that property could become something you could transfer - use, reuse, and the competitive market could take off. Now we've recreated feudalism in the context of intellectual property.'Unfortunately, to read the article you need to register.Reg Req'd Link, use "firstname.lastname@example.org/feeshfeesh"
