  1. I think its really interesting how they included a bit on Lessig in the documentary. From this trailer you get a sense of what Lessig was saying in his article we read for last week, about how we are reverting to an amateurization of culture. This clip really highlights the way that contemporary users want to be producers instead of just consumers, and how that is coming into conflict with the model regulated by professionals/corporations.
