The Washington Internet Daily mentions Professor Lawrence Lessig and quotes Executive Director of the Fair Use Project Anthony Falzone in this story about the Swedish Pirate Party that seeks to restrict copyright protection:

Falkvinge is scheduled to take his tour Tuesday to a public meeting sponsored by law professor Lawrence Lessig's Stanford Center for Internet and Society and a private gathering at Google headquarters in Mountain View, Calif. He gave a short keynote at the Open Source Convention in Portland, Ore., Thursday.

... "I will admit to being the pessimist" about "overcoming the vast resources of the content industries," said Anthony Falzone, executive director of the Fair Use Project at Stanford Law School's Center for Internet and Society. Staff attorney Fred von Lohmann of the Electronic Frontier Foundation agreed: "I wish I had as much hope using the political process in the United States as we do in Sweden."
