Freedom of Expression
by Kembrew McLeod
Publisher: Wikibooks 2005
Number of pages: 384
The book covers the ways in which intellectual property laws have been used to privatize all forms of expression -- from guitar riffs to human genes and public space -- and in the process stifle creative expression. Kembrew McLeod challenges the blind embrace of privatization as it clashes against our right to free speech and shared resources.
