“Copyright law has got to give up its obsession with 'the copy.' The law should not regulate 'copies' or 'modern reproductions' on their own. It should instead regulate uses--like public distributions of copies of copyrighted work--that connect directly to the economic incentive copyright law was intended to foster.”
Lawrence Lessig, Remix: Making Art and Commerce Thrive in the Hybrid Economy

“Every generation welcomes the pirates from the last.”
Lawrence Lessig, Free Culture: The Nature and Future of Creativity

“Why should it be that just when technology is
most encouraging of creativity, the law should be most restrictive?”
