Professor Lawrence Lessig is quoted in The Chronicle Of Higher Education about his forthcoming book:

His latest book, Remix, is coming out this fall. It "argues that the legal system is making criminals out of young people who produce entertaining or informative videos, music, and other art works through piecing together parts of others’ works. He advocates a new type of economy that allows both market competition and people to freely share their art."
