Lessig Lessig everywhere…

The following is taken verbatim, without permission, from TKT:


A group of law and technology scholars are setting up a nonprofit company

that will develop ways for artists, writers and others to easily designate

their work as shareable. The firm’s founders argue that recent expansions

in intellectual property law could stifle creativity. The new company,

called Creative Commons, will work on clearly identifying material that is

meant to be shared. By making it easier to place material in the public

domain, Creative Commons hopes to encourage more people to do so. “It’s a

way to mark the spaces people are allowed to walk on,” said Lawrence

Lessig, leading intellectual property expert. Lessig will take a partial

leave from Stanford Law School to serve as chairman of Creative Commons.
