I am not a lawyer, but have enough ex­po­sure to the field of In­tel­lec­tu­al Prop­er­ty to have de­vel­oped im­mense re­spect for its com­plex­i­ty and sub­tleties. It is dif­fi­cult to de­vise a rea­son­able and fair set of poli­cies as re­gards in­tel­lec­tu­al prop­er­ty right­s, and then still more dif­fi­cult to use the blunt in­stru­ment of the law to im­ple­ment that pol­i­cy. I have not al­ways agreed with Dr. Lessig's anal­y­ses, but he and his team have ob­vi­ous­ly put or­ders of mag­ni­tude more thought in­to this than I ev­er will, so I'm in­clined to trust their im­ple­men­ta­tion of what seems to me like a rea­son­able and fair li­cens­ing ar­range­men­t.
