Does copyright law, the way it is being practiced today, have a harmful impact on society? In other words, do copyright and intellectual property hinder not only artistic creativity but our democratic freedoms? Even though this article is old, it is extremely interesting and captures the views of law professors on the issue. Prominent among them is Professor Lawrence Lessig.

Currently listening to: Miles Davis – Bitches Brew

  1. If the copyright law has any bad affect on creativity, Creative Commons licenses are definitely good substitutes. They provide a platform that protects the intellectual rights while keeping the creative and collaborative process open and legal.
