Editorial Reviews

Jorge Ramos, author and anchor for Noticiero Univision, stops by to talk about the effect that Hispanics could have on a presidential election. Ramos also discusses his book The Latino Wave. Then, Charlie talks with Tom Rothman, the chairman of Fox Filmed Entertainment and the man responsible for film projects like The Day After Tomorrow and I, Robot. And finally, the show concludes with a conversation about the control that "big business" has on culture with Stanford Law professor Lawrence Lessig, author of the book Free Culture: How Big Media Uses Technology and the Law to Lock Down Culture and Control Creativity.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Lawrence Lessig of Stanford University speaks with Charlie Rose about what he sees as the threat to true creativity in American culture. He suggests that there has occurred a legal effort to increase the protection of property, to extend the time of Copywright in such a way as to enable corporations to limit freedom of creativity. He says what has happened is that creators of culture are limited in the sources they are able to use by the introduction of these new protections. I do not really know enough about this subject to comment on it. However one immediate thought is that what has happened in recent years is in some way the opposite. People have so much available to them in so many different ways, thanks to the 'Internet' that they can face 'future shock' in over- abundance of choice. There is also I thought the fear by many 'creators of culture' that their products are stolen and taken too lightly, and that they in effect are more and more reduced to giving their work away. i.e. The copywright protection would seem to be for individuals as well as for corporations.
Lessig is intelligent and clear- thinking. So if one is looking for an informed discussion( but not humor or entertainment) this is a fine segment.
