Lawrence Lessig, fresh off of the successful release of his new book Free Culture (as well as its myriad remixes) was elected to the Board of Directors of the Free Software Foundation. The FSF is the home of the GPL (General Public License), the software license underlying many free/open source applications. Congratulations!
Let's hope Stallman doesn't read the book. They might have some serious discussions on the use of the terms 'piracy' and 'intellectual property'. :)
