Getting Our Values around Copyright Right
Lessig, Lawrence
EDUCAUSE Review, v45 n2 p26-42 Mar-Apr 2010
Copyright is essential to a diverse and rich culture. Yet the platform--the technology--through which individuals get access to their culture has changed radically. The existing system of copyright thus cannot work in the digital age and needs also to be changed, radically. In this article, the author shares three observations on the way to stating an argument on the way to proposing what one can do in a debate that the author thinks educators need to take more seriously. He discusses three possible things one can do in response to the copyright problem. (Contains 5 notes.)
