Lawrence Lessig‘s new book, Remix: Making Art and Commerce Thrive in the Hybrid Economy is soon out.

- that we need to celebrate (and support) the rebirth of a remix culture, and
- that a new form of business (what I call the “hybrid”) will flourish as we better enable this remix creativity.
Many of the themes are described in 18 minutes of a TED talk, How Creativity is being strangled by the law. See below:
