Business Week has a nice

  • Business Week has a nice short interview with everyone’s favorite cheerleader for sensible copyright rules, Lawrence Lessig. No revelations here, though I’m glad to see him explain his logic to the short-attention-span business audience, who are the guys who need to hear it (whether I like that fact or not). I think his final comment sums things up well:

    “We don’t need a new vision. We just need to recognize what the traditional vision has been. The traditional vision protects copyright owners from unfair competition. It has never been a way to give copyright holders perfect control over how consumers use content. We need to make sure that pirates don’t set up CD pressing plants or competing entities that sell identical products. We need to stop worrying about whether you or I use a song on your PC and then transfer it your MP3 player.”
