Lessig

Lawrence Lessig gave a presentation at BU Law today for our annual “Distinguished Lecture”. Luckily, my Constitutional Law professor was losing his voice and let the class out an unprecedented 15 minutes early. This allowed me to catch Professor Lessig’s entire presentation.
Professor Lessig presented an entertaining argument for more limited copyright controls, grounded in law but exemplified through “stories”. I’m not going to go into the substance of his argument here, but I will say that I enjoyed the speech and I’m looking forward to getting into more specialized legal issues (such as copyright) in the next two years. I’m getting tired of Civil Procedure and Constitutional Law, though neither is as boring as I thought it would be. Hopefully this summer I’ll have time to read Lessig’s book, “The Future of Ideas“. No time for stuff like that now…
