Transcript

  "We made mixed tapes; they remix
music.<http://www.ted.com/talks/larry_lessig_says_the_law_is_strangling_creativity.html#1046000>
 We watched TV; they make
TV.<http://www.ted.com/talks/larry_lessig_says_the_law_is_strangling_creativity.html#1048000>

It is technology that has made them
different,<http://www.ted.com/talks/larry_lessig_says_the_law_is_strangling_creativity.html#1051000>
 and as we see what this technology can
do,<http://www.ted.com/talks/larry_lessig_says_the_law_is_strangling_creativity.html#1055000>we
need to recognize you can't
kill<http://www.ted.com/talks/larry_lessig_says_the_law_is_strangling_creativity.html#1057000>
 the instinct the technology produces. We can only criminalize
it.<http://www.ted.com/talks/larry_lessig_says_the_law_is_strangling_creativity.html#1060000>
 We can't stop our kids from using
it.<http://www.ted.com/talks/larry_lessig_says_the_law_is_strangling_creativity.html#1064000>
 We can only drive it
underground.<http://www.ted.com/talks/larry_lessig_says_the_law_is_strangling_creativity.html#1066000>
 We can't make our kids passive
again.<http://www.ted.com/talks/larry_lessig_says_the_law_is_strangling_creativity.html#1068000>
 We can only make them, quote, "pirates." And is that
good?<http://www.ted.com/talks/larry_lessig_says_the_law_is_strangling_creativity.html#1071000>
 We live in this weird time. It's kind of age of
prohibitions,<http://www.ted.com/talks/larry_lessig_says_the_law_is_strangling_creativity.html#1076000>
 where in many areas of our
life,<http://www.ted.com/talks/larry_lessig_says_the_law_is_strangling_creativity.html#1080000>
 we live life constantly against the
law.<http://www.ted.com/talks/larry_lessig_says_the_law_is_strangling_creativity.html#1082000>
 Ordinary people live life against the
law,<http://www.ted.com/talks/larry_lessig_says_the_law_is_strangling_creativity.html#1085000>
 and that's what I -- we are doing to our
kids.<http://www.ted.com/talks/larry_lessig_says_the_law_is_strangling_creativity.html#1087000>
 They live life knowing they live it against the
law.<http://www.ted.com/talks/larry_lessig_says_the_law_is_strangling_creativity.html#1091000>That
realization is extraordinarily
corrosive,<http://www.ted.com/talks/larry_lessig_says_the_law_is_strangling_creativity.html#1095000>
 extraordinarily
corrupting.<http://www.ted.com/talks/larry_lessig_says_the_law_is_strangling_creativity.html#1099000>
 And in a democracy, we ought to be able to do
better.<http://www.ted.com/talks/larry_lessig_says_the_law_is_strangling_creativity.html#1102000>
 Do better, at least for them, if not for opening for
business.<http://www.ted.com/talks/larry_lessig_says_the_law_is_strangling_creativity.html#1106000>Thank
you very much.<http://www.ted.com/talks/larry_lessig_says_the_law_is_strangling_creativity.html#1113000>
