Change Congress

"Professor Lawrence Lessig, renowned expert in intellectual property, has a new mission: to combat the influence of money in American democracy. Bolstered by the recent “Draft Lessig” movement that almost convinced him to run for Congress, Lessig will further his mission by launching a new “Change Congress” project in a Sunshine Week lecture sponsored by the Sunlight Foundation and Omidyar Network" (Sunlight Foundation).

My purpose for posting this is simple. As a librarian, I am a huge fan of Lawrence Lessig. Lawrence Lessig is a Law Professor and Director of the Stanford Center for Internet and Society. His passionate message about intellectual property rings true. If you don't know about the FREE CULTURE movement watch this IMPORTANT VIDEO.

Lessig will be speaking from Washington D.C. about his CHANGE CONGRESS project at 1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Thursday, March 20, 2008.

The event will also be Web cast:
