#CCSummit2021 Keynote by Lawrence Lessig
Creative Commons Summit 2021
The 2021 CC Global Summit was our biggest yet—the week-long event welcomed 330 speakers from all over the world and 170+ sessions! This year, we hosted five keynotes from global leaders in the open movement, who shared their work in open data, science and health, software and law. This is a recording of our final keynote of the CC Global Summit by Lawrence Lessig, founder of Creative Commons, law professor, attorney, and political activist. As Creative Commons celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, Lessig reflects on how CC began, what it has accomplished, and what he hopes to see in the next twenty years and beyond. In this keynote, Lessig discusses some of the most pressing issues affecting the open ecosystem and the internet right now, and discusses what lessons can be learned from the prosecution and regulation of Big Tobacco—its media misinformation and disinformation, and its political interference.
