Lawrence Lessig discusses Google Book search and the ‘ecosystem’ of rights

Lawrence Lessig discusses Google Book search and the ecosystem of rights. In summary, he’s very wary about Google’s approach, contrasting it with the public library system, and suggesting that we may be unwittingly creating a restrictive and cumbersome system of rights which will stifle future academic and creative work. There’s plenty to argue with in this presentation, in particular whether we want a private company, i.e. Google, effectively reframing our copyright laws.
