Listening to Larry, Too

...as we would if we didn't point you as well to the other Larry (Solum), who has begun what he describes as a "blogospheric book club" for discussing Free Culture:

"Lessig is telling stories that are designed to pump certain intuitions--to put us in the right frame of mind for what is to come. I am reading the book as I write these posts, so I am not sure what is coming next, but I have a suspicion. I think that the Internet is going to play a role vis a vis intellectual property law that is similar to the role that air travel played vis a vis traditional property law. 'Common sense' is going to tell us that IP must give way to the new reality, if the public interest is to be served."
