Larry Lessig for Congress?

Posted by: Tedstaff

In response to the unofficial movement to draft Larry Lessig to run for US Congress, Lessig has set up his own site, Lessig08.com, to help him decide if he should run for a seat in California’s 12th District. A 10-minute video on the site lays out his platform.

Lessig08.com will also host Lessig’s yet-to-launch Change Congress initiative, an effort to fight corruption in government. Lessig has devoted himself to this effort — in fact, TEDTalks hosts one of Lessig’s last lectures on copyright law, his previous cause.
