Speaker:
Lawrence Lessig is the Roy L. Furman Professor of Law and Leadership at Harvard Law School, and director of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University.
A lawyer and activist, Lessig spent a decade arguing for sensible intellectual property law, updated for the digital age. He was a founding board member of Creative Commons, an organization that builds better copyright practices through principles established first by the open-source software community.
Lessig has shifted focus to American politics and in 2011, founded Rootstrikers, an organization dedicated to changing the influence of money in Congress. In his latest book, Republic, Lost: How Money Corrupts Congress--and a Plan to Stop It, Lessig focuses on how far the U.S. has spun off course — and how citizens can regain control.
