Google Wins the Presidential Election (So Does Obama)
Professor Lawrence Lessig is mentioned in a PC Magazine article about Google's importance to the presidential election:
Obama's most prominent tech advisers include Eric Schmidt of (yup) Google, and former FCC heads Reed Hundt and Bill Kennard, along with "free culture" proponent Larry Lessig (who backed away from the campaign after being a little too vocal about his atheistic views).
... Content companies shouldn't rest: if Lessig has Obama's ear, you might see more policies leaning towards "fair use" of other people's copyrighted works.
