Jonathan Lethem on copyright

March 27, 2007

There’s an excellent interview on copyright and intellectual property with the author Jonathan Lethem here (found via Boing Boing).

I’ve read a couple of Lethem’s books, including the wonderful Fortress of Solitude, and he has some very interesting ideas on the current malaise in thinking of “copyright absolutists”, and the need for (sometimes very subtle) new approaches toward intellectual property. Its always encouraging to see an author (or artists more generally) thinking about new approaches to this issue.
