I have been looking for indication that you might actually know or have actually caught on to who he is and what he does, but thus far, it looks like your outrage was genuine the whole time. Or you play tongue-in-cheek so well that it loses its impact.

Lessig produced utterances which, because they are not fixed in a tangible form, are uncopyrightable. Somebody else created the recording which, being so fixed, is copyrightable. That somebody owns the copyright; Lessig, who lost a copyright case at the Supreme Court, does not.

He can repeat this falsehood as much as he wants, but repetition does not make it true, or even, to use the Colbertese, truthy.

Larry, is it normal for the copyright of an interview to be shared by the participants or was that something you negotiated for?
