"Now a 38-year-old Harvard law professor, Lessig has become one
of the most prominent commentators on law and cyberspace, thanks to
his academic writing, a column in the trendy magazine The Industry
Standard and a new -- and largely pessimistic -- book about the
future of privacy and free speech on the Internet."
"Lessig's chief message is aimed at those who view the Internet
as some kind of democratic wonderland, a place of unfettered free
speech, business competition and creativity. Set the euphoria
aside, he warns. Government and industry are already stripping
privacy, free speech and other liberties from the Internet in order
to suit the needs of online commmerce."
""There is no reason to believe that the grounding for
liberty in cyberspace will simply emerge," he said. "Quite the
opposite is the case.""
