Lawrence Lessig is a professor of law at Stanford University and author of “The Future of Ideas,” “Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace,” and “Free Culture.” Lessig puts copyright law and conventional wisdom on its head, challenging media monopolies and tired old systems to give way to the innovators.

Lessig represented Web site operator Eric Eldred in the groundbreaking case, Eldred vs. Ashcroft, a challenge to the 1998 Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act.
