Where will the next revolution take place?

Lawrence Lessig has published an account of his visit to Brazil where he sees the rise of free culture to counter the threat from the copyright culture that we find in most developed nations, especially USA. It contains an excellent history of how the current copyright laws in the USA came to be. Changing the opt-in system of copy-protection to an opt-out system, it seems, has landed us into this soup that we find ourselves in. Nice read!
