The future of ideas : the fate of the commons in a connected world by Lawrence Lessig( Book )
37 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 1,742 libraries worldwide
In The future of ideas, Lawrence Lessig explains how the Internet revolution has produced a counterrevolution of potentially devastating power and effect. Creativity once flourished because the Net protected a commons on which innovators could experiment. But now, manipulating the law for their own purposes, corporations have established themselves as virtual gatekeepers of the Net while Congress, in the pockets of media magnates, has rewritten copyright and patent laws to stifle creativity and progress. Lessig weaves the history of technology and its relevant laws to make a lucid and accessible case to protect the sanctity of intellectual freedom. He shows how the door to a future of ideas is being shut just as technology is creating extraordinary possibilities that have implications for all of us
Remix : making art and commerce thrive in the hybrid economy by Lawrence Lessig( Book )
38 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,315 libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: The author of Free Culture shows how we harm our children-and almost anyone who creates, enjoys, or sells any art form-with a restrictive copyright system driven by corporate interests. Lessig reveals the solutions to this impasse offered by a collaborative yet profitable "hybrid economy". Lawrence Lessig, the reigning authority on intellectual property in the Internet age, spotlights the newest and possibly the most harmful culture war-a war waged against our kids and others who create and consume art. America's copyright laws have ceased to perform their original, beneficial role: protecting artists' creations while allowing them to build on previous creative works. In fact, our system now criminalizes those very actions. For many, new technologies have made it irresistible to flout these unreasonable and ultimately untenable laws. Some of today's most talented artists are felons, and so are our kids, who see no reason why they shouldn't do what their computers and the Web let them do, from burning a copyrighted CD for a friend to "biting" riffs from films, videos, songs, etc and making new art from them. Criminalizing our children and others is exactly what our society should not do, and Lessig shows how we can and must end this conflict-a war as ill conceived and unwinnable as the war on drugs. By embracing "read-write culture," which allows its users to create art as readily as they consume it, we can ensure that creators get the support-artistic, commercial, and ethical-that they deserve and need. Indeed, we can already see glimmers of a new hybrid economy that combines the profit motives of traditional business with the "sharing economy" evident in such Web sites as Wikipedia and YouTube. The hybrid economy will become ever more prominent in every creative realm-from news to music-and Lessig shows how we can and should use it to benefit those who make and consume culture. Remix is an urgent, eloquent plea to end a war that harms our children and other intrepid creative users of new technologies. It also offers an inspiring vision of the post-war world where enormous opportunities await those who view art as a resource to be shared openly rather than a commodity to be hoarded
Republic, lost : how money corrupts Congress--and a plan to stop it by Lawrence Lessig( Book )
10 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,188 libraries worldwide

The boy who could change the world : the writings of Aaron Swartz by Aaron Swartz( Book )
8 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and French and held by 535 libraries worldwide
La 4e de couverture indique : "Aaron Swartz (1986-2013) était programmeur informatique, essayiste et hacker-activiste. Convaincu que l'accès à la connaissance constitue le meilleur outil d'émancipation et de justice, il consacra sa vie à la défense de la "culture libre". Il joua notamment un rôle décisif dans la création de Reddit, des flux RSS, dans le développement des licences Creative Commons ou encore lors des manifestations contre le projet de loi SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act), qui visait à restreindre les libertés sur Internet. Au fil de ses différents combats, il rédigea une impressionnante quantité d'articles, de textes de conférences et de pamphlets politiques ; dont une partie est rassemblée ici. L'adolescent, qui était déjà un libre-penseur brillant, laisse progressivement place à l'adulte, toujours plus engagé, se prononçant sur des sujets aussi variés que la politique, l'informatique, la culture ou l'éducation, et annonçant nombre de questions débattues aujourd'hui. Tiraillé entre ses idéaux et les lois relatives à la propriété intellectuelle aux Etats-Unis, harcelé par le FBI à la suite d'un procès intenté à son encontre, Aaron Swartz a mis fin à ses jours à l'âge de 26 ans. Son ami et mentor, Lawrence Lessig, professeur de droit à Harvard et candidat aux primaires démocrates pour l'élection présidentielle américaine de 2016, signe l'introduction de cet ouvrage. Chaque section est également précédée d'une éclairante analyse écrite par l'un des proches collaborateurs d'Aaron Swartz dont l'auteur de science-fiction Cory Doctorow, l'éditorialiste de Slate David Auerbach et David Segal, avec qui Swartz a cofondé l'organisation militante Demand Progress."

Forbes ranks it as the second-largest private company in the country. Join Senator Bernie Sanders, Van Jones and Katrina vanden Heuvel in this shocking and dramatic investigation of how the billionaire Koch brothers have spent hundreds of millions of dollars on covert attacks that destroy American values and corrupt our government

Les Golems du numérique : droit d'auteur et Lex Electronica by Mélanie Dulong de Rosnay( Book )
4 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 62 libraries worldwide
La 4e de couverture indique : " Le droit d'auteur, élaboré sur les fondements analogiques de la rareté du support, est remis en question par le numérique, qui s'appuie sur la copie, la réappropriation et le partage. Il a été adapté au rythme des innovations techniques de reproduction et de diffusion et peut conduire aussi bien au contrôle de l'accès qu'à la constitution de biens communs. Les processus d'élaboration des normes et standards techniques et d'extension des droits ont été pensés de manière indépendante, entraînant des tensions entre les industries culturelles et les droits du public. L'ouvrage propose un modèle techno-juridique de la régulation du partage de la culture. Fondé sur la lex informatica, il intègre code juridique et code informatique pour exprimer les informations sur les droits et élargir les catégories actuelles du droit d'auteur pour faciliter l'utilisation, la création et le partage non marchand. Ce livre est basé sur plus de dix ans de participation à la régulation juridique et technique du droit d'auteur. Co-fondatrice et responsable juridique de Creative Commons France au CERSA (CNRS Université Paris II) entre 2003 et 2013, l'auteure a pris part à la standardisation technique MPEG (ISO), à deux commissions du CSPLA (ministère de la Culture) et à des travaux de l'OMPI (Nations unies) avec le statut d'observateur en tant que présidente de Communia, l'association internationale pour le domaine public numérique."

Free software, free society : selected essays of Richard M. Stallman by Richard Stallman( Book )
9 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 30 libraries worldwide
The intersection of ethics, law, business and computer software is the subject of these essays and speeches by MacArthur Foundation Grant winner, Richard M. Stallman. This collection includes historical writings such as The GNU Manifesto, which defined and launched the activist Free Software Movement, along with new writings on hot topics in copyright, patent law, and the controversial issue of "trusted computing." Stallman takes a critical look at common abuses of copyright law and patents when applied to computer software programs, and how these abuses damage our entire society and remove our existing freedoms. He also discusses the social aspects of software and how free software can create community and social justice. Given the current turmoil in copyright and patent laws, including the DMCA and proposed CBDTPA, these essays are more relevant than ever. Stallman tackles head-on the essential issues driving the current changes in copyright law. He argues that for creativity to flourish, software must be free of inappropriate and overly-broad legal constraints. Over the past twenty years his arguments and actions have changed the course of software history; this new book is sure to impact the future of software and legal policies in the years to come
