Lessig: The Ethics of the Free Culture Movement


Mostly I work in the Economics building. [Downstairs from Andrei Schleiffer in fact.] It is right next to the Law School. Accident?

You can believe in accidents, but if you believe in accidents, science ceases to exist.

Economics, in the capitalist paradigm, can’t exist without legal definitions and enforcement of property. It was interesting to hear someone talking from the Law side.

Lessig put up Richard Stallman’s picture and described him as someone who was viewed as a crackpot in the ’80’s but in the 20th century is not. “He is a hero.”

Mention pro and con of Austrian free-market economist Friedrich Hayek.

Toward a definition of freedom.
