it was amazing
bookshelves: alltime-faves

Ok, so I'm biased because the issues that the book discusses are some of the things that made me want to go to law school in the first place and Lessig's work has pretty much informed my academic thinking while in school. But this shit is riveting. I know it doesn't seem like it would be, but it is, and it's of immense importance to anyone who consumes contemporary music (and culture) or has an interest in how art gets commodified. Which is basically all of you people.

Also, even if you don't think this stuff is totally gripping like I do, the chapter where he talks about his Supreme Court argumention in Eldred v. Ashcroft is definitely page-turner material.
