bookshelves: influences, nonfiction

Phenomenal! Today we imagine law as an esoteric subject where money has conquered reason. That's only partly true. Lawrence Lessig describes what he calls a "land grab" on the territory opened up by new technologies. Framed in this way, digital and copy rights are more an emergent and confused battlefield. The danger is not in losing the fight, the danger is in losing the awareness that there is a fight, its scope, its historical context, and it's relevance to our daily lives.
