Defining the contours of freedom
Lawrence Lessig, Creative Commons founder, FSF member.
December 24, 2009
A special appeal from Creative Commons founder and Harvard
Law School professor Lawrence Lessig: "The Free Software Foundation and Richard
Stallman's work represents the most important work for freedom that this culture
(the American culture) has seen in many many generations, because it takes the idea
of freedom and it removes it from the ivory tower and it removes it from lawyers
and places it in a community—a technology community—that is one of the most important
communities defining the contours of freedom that most people in our culture—and
increasingly around the world—will know."
