By: Referat Thu, 05 Jun 2008 11:13:49 +0000 Also, use the same format for your powerpoints on corruption like you did in the past. They are very effective.

By: Eduard Tue, 25 Mar 2008 16:25:59 +0000 I suggest that the more you can do to create paths of least resistance that focus on people doing the right things the further you will get and the more lasting the results.

By: Gordon Hall Wed, 19 Mar 2008 16:01:32 +0000 Maybe the vision of addressing “curruption” is not broad enough. We live in complex and interdependant societies. Do we not have to think beyond single issue campaigns? Do we have to consider the whole of society? Can we work towards having a society that takes responsibility for the systems that characterise that society.? Is it possible to create a Learning Society that understands the systems that bind it together and is prepared to continually improve those systems? This is just what we are setting out to do in Scotland. This is an extremely ambitious goal, iIt will be a very long road.

By: Farhana Mon, 26 Nov 2007 00:55:30 +0000 I’ve come to realize that the political discussion is simply a no end topic and that it touches upon a variety of areas..I recently did some light reading on Kenya’s situation, while searching for environmental problems, found that corruption dominated the country deeply and them came across your blog…I thought that as long as this world was run by money and people with interests, corruption would less likely to decline….

By: 迷你倉 Tue, 30 Oct 2007 13:05:56 +0000 It’s time to get serious about understanding the nature of “self” and “selfishness”, and support those who do the real work of forming “self” (i.e. parents), with education on why one can do one’s child (and others who will have to endure them) no greater disservice than to raise them to be habitually selfish.

By: and Sat, 13 Oct 2007 17:43:58 +0000 I must say it’s refreshing to see an acknowledgment of the failings of the political system more broadly and a shift to engaging with the fundamental issue of the power of money in politics. I’ve been to too many “free culture” events where all anyone cares about is the latest web 2.0 gadget and how amazing it is, oh and “hey you can assign a CC license to it”. There is generally very little acknowledgment of global power imbalances or issues of poverty, race, gender etc. and most fundamentally the role of enclosures.

I got attracted to Creative Commons from being engaged in political activism rather than the other way around. I saw it as a practical tool that could be utilized as part of a broader movement against enclosures, whether in software, pharmaceutical drugs, media, land, water, where ever money and power go they seem to want to privatise what should be public and limit any accountability. I have generally been dismayed by the lack of a broader political analysis of power by those involved in the ‘free culture movement’, perhaps it because most participants tend to come from the most elite sectors of society?

In any case, it’s good to see that people are finally setting these issues within a broader political framework rather than just seeing the problem of changing a few laws here and there.

Oh, and please stop with the sycophantic congratulations and well wishes in every comment, Larry does good work but it starts to get embarrassing watching everyone line up to kiss his hand.


By: drtaxsacto Sat, 06 Oct 2007 23:46:29 +0000 Professor Lessig, while I appreciate your efforts and hope they are successful, I am not sure I understand the scope or direction of your future work. The nature of the political process is one where interests clash. But there are also opportunities, as your colleague who was once at Stanford Anne Kreuger suggested, for rent seeking. As long as government is in the business of transferring resources from one source to another, rents are created. I suspect part of your solution will not be to reduce the influence which government exerts over Americans.

Why is Gore particularly exempt from the “shill” charge you raise – even on the issue of global warming? Was the Kyoto protocol a serious effort to respond to a problem or a set of ill-conceived political decisions which would do little to reduce the effects of the problem? From my view, a lot of the discussion of responses to global warming are not that at all but rather attempts to move rents from one side to another.

The concern that I have is that one person’s corruption is another’s legitimate source of political or substantive disagreement. In many cases the issues we try to deal with in the public sector are poorly defined which allows many to step in and adjust results inappropriately.

Does that mean we should allow all of the egregious activities that we have seen in the process, even after the enactment of a series of political reform (i.e. Anti corruption) acts? Of course not. But definitions are key here.

The possibilities for unintended consequences are substantial. For example, in the name of reducing corruption we changed the way political contributions are collected by reducing the amount that most individuals could offer in support. No sane person would suggest that we have made the process of running for office any less corrupt. Indeed, most observers suggest that the concentration on fund raising has become if anything more corrupting. When presidential candidates need to raise money in $1000 increments they spend a lot more time doing it. The Hsus of the world (bundlers) become more important.

As one guide look at the history of the municipal reform movements at the turn of the 20th Century. In California it was led by Hiram Johnson and the Progressives. Many of the reforms of that era (the Initiative, Referendum and Recall) were created to reduce corruption. And yet when one looks at how many initiatives are created and advanced they look pretty corrupt. Ditto for the reforms adopted by the New York Bureau of Municipal Research.

The caution here, based on my own 35 years of working in and around the political process, argues for clarity of definition and a lot of skepticism of purity of motives of ALL players in the process. From my academic work the best place to start is from the rich literature of Public Choice Economics.

By: Matthew T. Tue, 02 Oct 2007 04:31:31 +0000 Your work has been an inspiration for my own (music education) related work, and I’m looking forward to the forthcoming book you describe as well as your new work.



By: Andrew Tue, 07 Aug 2007 20:32:50 +0000 This is a spectacular decision.

As more before me have already said it is commendable that you have the power and motivation to shift your work and power into a different field.

The corruption of the political system in the understanding that you supplied is the most essential problem that we as a race are facing.

NOTHING that is important, including Global Warming, IP Law, Global Poverty, global Wealth distribution can be even tackled without first bringing the political system to a decent state.

I am fully aware of the problems and troubles that await you and I will be visiting this blog regularly. A great move on your side would be recommendations of reading that you will be doing – i.e. what books, articles etc. you find intriguing or enriching. This would allow us – the readers, to grow with you, and be able to understand the problems and the world just a bit better.

I am not an american, I live in Poland – however seeing that the american way is more and more becoming the global way of life and operating I appreciate and understand the significance of your new goal.

You brought a lot of ideas and understanding to my life – regarding the IP Law, establishment and generally the way things work. If you will shine more light on each of us regarding this new vital topic – it will be a great journey for all of us.

Anyway – just wanted to wish you all the best on this new path and assure you that a lot of people will be cheering you on.
