El profesor Lessig realizó un magnífico trabajo. El libro es de muy fácil lectura, hay muchos ejemplos y jurisprudencia acerca de la irrupción de Internet y la relación con la Ciencia Jurídica

The Future of Ideas takes a broad look at the factors that could ruin the internet as a source of innovation. Dr Lessig does his usual excellent job of explaining the slippery and sometimes counterintuitive concepts that underlie the tension between individual and community rights as they affect the internet. The two areas which receive particular examination are telecommunications and copyright law. One concern is that, more and more, copyright and patent laws are being used to block competition and suppress innovation. The other main concern of the book is that the move to broadband brings us into uncharted legal territory where historical protections against monopolies and government interference haven¿t yet been clearly established.
