The reigning authority on intellectual property in the Internet age, Lawrence Lessig spotlights the newest and possibly the most harmful culture war?a war waged against those who create and consume art. America?s copyright laws have ceased to perform their original, beneficial role: protecting artists? creations while allowing them to build on previous creative works. In fact, our system now criminalizes those very actions. Remix is an urgent, eloquent plea to end a war that harms every intrepid, creative user of new technologies.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting Even though I agree with most of the ideas and arguments in this book, as a younger reader I sometimes felt like he could have considered more things from the point of view of us "pirates". He quotes one student essay near the end of the book that sums up the "younger position" very well, but I often felt like I was being talked down to or about, rather than as a participant in the discussion or debate. That being said,I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in the Net, copyright law, culture, economics, and especially where they all meet.

Editorial Reviews

"Lawrence Lessig is a prophet for the Internet age. . . . A splendidly combative manifesto-pungent, witty and persuasive." -Financial Times" Once dubbed a 'philosopher king of Internet law,' [Lessig] writes with a unique mix of legal expertise, historic facts, and cultural curiosity. . . . The result is a wealth of interesting examples and theories on how and why digital technology and copyright law can promote professional and amateur art." -Time
