Remix Culture

Interview with Lawrence Lessig, professor @Stanford, on the concept of remix culture. A culture of modifying and mixing rich media: audio, video or source code; just as we have the freedom to quote and comment on written text.

He compares media companies to the citizens of the country of the blind (from Time Machine) who decide the solution to their blindness is to blind anyone who can see. He also comments on the upcoming Supreme court hearing on Grokster which could end up outlawing P2P.
