Summary

Remix. Making Art and Commerce Thrive in the Hybrid Economy. By Lawrence Lessig. Penguin Press, New York, 2008. 351 pp. $25.95, C$28.50. ISBN 9781594201721.

Arguing that current copyright law harms most everyone who creates, sells, or enjoys art (very broadly defined), Lessig presents an alternative approach, "read-write" culture.
