> Computer Systems Laboratory Colloquium 
> 4:15PM, Wednesday, Feb 20, 2002 
> NEC Auditorium, Gates Computer Science Building B03 
> http://ee380.stanford.edu 
> 
> Topic: Free Code, Free Labor 
> 
> Speaker: Lawrence Lessig 
> Professor of Law, Stanford University 
> 
> About the talk: 
> 
> In this talk, Professor Lessig will develop the links between 
> free labor movement of the 19th century, and the free software. 
> Stallman says his free software is free in the sense of free 
> speech; it is more richly seen as free in the sense of free 
> labor. The struggle for free labor today -- in coders, and 
> artists generally -- is restricted by the same controls that 
> restricted free labor in the past: by a legal system that gives 
> overly strong rights to the few against the many. 
> 
> About the speaker: 
>

> Court. Lessig teaches and writes in the areas of constitutional 
> law, contracts, comparative constitutional law, and the law of
