Lawrence Lessig's Google Print presentation

If you've been following the Google Print debate, you might want to watch Lawrence Lessig's presentation entitled Is Google Book Search Fair Use?.

A half hour presentation by Professor Lessig on the application of the Fair Use Doctrine in copyright law to the Google Book Search product. Includes discussion of other technology related fair use cases including AribaSoft and MP3.com.

Besides being a Professor of Law at Stanford Law School, a respected author, Chair of the Creative Commons Project, and board member of the Free Software Foundation, Electronic Frontier Foundation, the Public Library of Science, and Public Knowledge, Professor Lessig's presentation style is widely praised and often imitated.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy the show. This isn't your typical Power Point presentation.

Watch the presentation here (Google Video).
