How to spin an argument 2.0

How to spin an argument 2.0: It is interesting to compare how the CEO of Simon & Schuster uses an L.A. Times op-ed piece to spin what book publishers and the author’s guild want us to believe what Google is doing with Google Book Search with how Larry Lessig spins the pro-Google point of view using his unique presentation method.

(Where I stand: I’m pro Lessig method of presenting an argument vs. the LA Times op-ed approach.)

Update: LA Times link fixed. Thanks, Stew.
Update II: Brian Dear’s rebuttal to Lessig, via: John Battelle
