Given the discussion about copyright and given that I just discovered I neevr linked to this: Lawrence Lessig is one of the US’ leading (if not the) leading expert on copyright. His book Free Culture is a must read for anybody interested in what the issues are and what can be done about it. The book is available for free (link), and it is much more interesting that you would think. It contains a very detailed discussion of what copyright used to do and what it got to do now, also what it might do etc. And if you’re still griping about me being unwilling to discuss copyright issues in the context of Thomas Ruff’s work just read the book.
