Law for the Commons - Commons Transition Wiki

Law for the Commons - Commons Transition Wiki | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

This wiki contains resources on the history of commons-based law and emerging legal innovations that seek to empower commoners and protect commons. Historically, commons have had a problematic relationship with conventional law, which generally reflects the mindset and priorities of the sovereign (monarch, nation-state, corporation) and not the lived experiences and practices of commoners. Still, in grappling with political, economic and legal realities, commoners often find ways to secure control over their common wealth, livelihoods and modes of commoning. Often, their solutions entail makeshift working arrangements with conventional law.

Proposed Strategy for the Commons Movement in 2015 - P2P Foundation

Proposed Strategy for the Commons Movement in 2015 - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

We are definitely going to a period of dislocation in 2015. The Greek debacle has shown the difficulty of any strategy based on national sovereignty and the end of any real political democracy for European nations ; the difficulties in China , Brazil and elsewhere show the period of high growth for emerging economies has come to an end; and the success of candidates like Donald Trump, which obtains 40% approval rating by promising to deport fifteen million people, shows the potential return of barbarism in the heart of the over-developed world.

Digital Commons - Commons Transition Wiki

Digital Commons - Commons Transition Wiki | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

A recurring challenge for people working on open networks is to find ways to prevent businesses from treating the shared resources of commoners – code, information, images, videos, product design, etc. – as “free” feedstock for their proprietary market machines. For-profit corporations can mobilize enormous capital and other resources to convert socially generated wealth into marketable products and service, essentially privatizing the shared community wealth or at least its market rewards.
