Larry Lessig’s Free Culture

I just downloaded Larry Lessig’s Free Culture, How Big Media Uses Technology and the Law to Lock Down Culture and Control Creativity having found reference to it on Akma’s Random Thoughts (via DayPop 40) where, thanks to the Creative Commons copyright, you can also download MP3 files of the chapters performed and recorded by enthusiastic volunteers. This is cool. Larry rocks. The book looks (sounds) great… love the concept, love the design! And love how the Creative Commons attribution – noncommerical has not stifled, but encouraged innovation. Check out the growing list of versions spawned…

And I have a good feeling that Prof. Lessig will still make a little dough on this project. If you’ve got an idea to share (or a song in your heart), isn’t free culture a better way to go?
