As a co-founder of Creative Commons, law professor Lawrence Lessig helped transform intellectual property laws for the digital age. Now he's focusing on reforming campaign finance, which he calls "the moral question of our age." Last year, Lessig created his own crowd-funded super PAC and helped lead a 185-mile march through New Hampshire to raise awareness of big money in politics. We'll talk to him about his career and latest crusade.
