    Watch Professor Edward Lee give a talk on his new book, The Fight for the Future: How People Defeated Hollywood and Saved the Internet—For Now, at Harvard University’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society. The talk explains how a grassroots movement involving millions of people was able to defeat money, politicians, Hollywood, and the copyright lobby, all in the name of a “free and open Internet.” In particular, Prof. Lee describes the ways in which people used Facebook, Twitter, and other social media to organize and launch protests against SOPA and ACTA, two controversial copyright proposals in the United States and European Union that many feared would lead to Internet censorship.
