A short video on Commons Based Reciprocity Licenses | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Work on developing Commons Based Reciprocity Licenses (or CBRLs, for short) continues apace here at the P2P Foundation. When speaking of the types of licenses, we often find it hard to explain how they fill a niche in the alt. license spectrum, falling somewhere between the straight up copyleft and the popular Creative Commons Non-Commercial License.

Sharing a (Not So) Living Planet

Sharing a (Not So) Living Planet | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Barely a week after more than half a million people marched for decisive action on climate change, the World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF) released their latest Living Planet report, which serves as a timely reminder that the environmental crises we face extend far beyond the popular discourse on global warming. As ever, this year’s report makes for grim reading, with updated facts that illustrate the devastating impact of human activity on the biosphere and point to the urgent need for a revolutionary shift in the way we use, manage and share the earth’s natural resources.

Say hello to the Ubernet - The Economist

Say hello to the Ubernet - The Economist | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

THE decade-long debate in America over “net neutrality”—the assumption that all internet traffic, no matter its origin or purpose, should be treated equally—is inching towards some form of compromise. Internet service providers (ISPs) like Verizon, AT&T, Comcast and Time Warner Cable are adamant that the internet should remain free of regulations that would bar them from limiting or charging bandwidth-hogging users such as Netflix and YouTube. During the prime-time hours of 6pm to 10pm, these two popular websites for streaming video account for half of all internet traffic in America.

Envisioning Autonomous Dispute Resolution (AutoArb)

Several commentators within the Digital Common Law Institute (DCLI) forums have suggested that a logical place to start examining the the digital network implications of law should be with regards to the sales of goods. The Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), nearly universally adopted by the fifty states, provides certainty in the execution of contracts no matter where buyers and suppliers may originate within the U.S.  DCLI has the opportunity to provide a certain amount of stability when transacting business through the transnational jurisdiction of the internet.  A digital common law can assist in the mechanisms for dispute resolution resulting from “smart contract” for the sale of goods.

The high profile campaign by the E15 campaigners in Newham shows the power of resistance but our commentators argue that without land reform, inequalities will continue.

Ever since, the company and its supporters and detractors have been embroiled in the same debate that has played out across the U.S. and around the world -- how to reconcile local laws with ride-sharing services, a relatively new business model Uber has used since launching about five years ago in San Francisco.

Why did Britain’s political class buy into the Tories’ economic fairytale?

Why did Britain’s political class buy into the Tories’ economic fairytale? | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
The UK economy has been in difficulty since the 2008 financial crisis. Tough spending decisions have been needed to put it on the path to recovery because of the huge budget deficit left behind by the last irresponsible Labour government, showering its supporters with social benefit spending. Thanks to the coalition holding its nerve amid the clamour against cuts, the economy has finally recovered. True, wages have yet to make up the lost ground, but it is at least a “job-rich” recovery, allowing people to stand on their own feet rather than relying on state handouts.
