Professor Lawrence Lessig is quoted in a Santa Rosa Press Democrat article about Carl Malamud, who is putting laws online as a way to push California and other government to drop their claim to copyright:
Malamud might be seriously outgunned in regards to the financial and legal resources of the governments he is facing. But Malamud has a track record of defeating much larger foes, said Lawrence Lessig, a professor at Stanford Law School and founder of its Center for Internet and Society.
While there is a lot of commercial interest in stopping Malamud, his strategy of showing how easy it is for governments to post laws themselves makes a strong argument to the public, Lessig said.
