Common Sense vs Control

In this fiery and eloquent presentation for TED, Larry Lessig tells three stories about how the web has primed the return to a participative culture as opposed to a broadcast-passive consumption culture; and how the culture of control still holds on to control, contrary to common sense. Lessig is discussing ownership and use of content on the web, and intellectual property, but I believe that the underlying theme is directly relevant to the adoption of participative knowledge use in organisations – and the resistance to that adoption on the basis of a need for control.
