How big media uses technology and the law to lock down culture and control creativity. “”Free Culture is an entertaining and important look at the past and future of the cold war between the media industry and new technologies.”” – Marc Andreessen, cofounder of Netscape. “”Free Culture goes beyond illuminating the catastrophe to our culture of increasing regulation to show examples of how we can make a different future. These new-style heroes and examples are rooted in the traditions of the founding fathers in ways that seem obvious after reading this book. Recommended reading to those trying to unravel the shrill hype around ‘intellectual property.'”” – Brewster Kahle, founder of the Internet Archive. The web site for the book is http: //free-culture.cc/.
