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.

The "Digital President's" ultimate challenge

The "Digital President's" ultimate challenge | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
All being well, a new Commission President will take office this year, having proclaimed ‘Digital’ to be her/his top priority.  But what should a Digital President do?  Sort out our fragmented telecoms market?  Perhaps.  Foster entrepreneurial start-ups?  Definitely.  But the real challenge is driving technology-based productivity gains in the rest of the economy: manufacturing, services and the public sector.

Algorithms Are Replacing Unions As The Champions of Workers | TechCrunch | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Quality of life is perhaps the single largest factor underpinning human happiness, and that quality is largely determined by one’s job. It should be no wonder then that so many activists and politicians have made improving work a key element of their advocacy for generations. The history of America is, in many ways, the history of work.

Does Sharing Mean Caring? Regulating Innovation in the Sharing Economy by Sofia Ranchordas :: SSRN

Does Sharing Mean Caring? Regulating Innovation in the Sharing Economy by Sofia Ranchordas :: SSRN | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Sharing economy practices have become increasingly popular in the past years. From swapping systems, network transportation to private kitchens, sharing with strangers appears to be the new urban trend. Although Uber, Airbnb, and other online platforms have democratized the access to a number of services and facilities, multiple concerns have been raised as to the public safety, health and limited liability of these sharing economy practices. In addition, these innovative activities have been contested by professionals offering similar services that claim that sharing economy is opening the door to unfair competition. Regulators are at crossroads: on the one hand, innovation in sharing economy should not be stifled by excessive and outdated regulation; on the other, there is a real need to protect the users of these services from fraud, liability and unskilled service providers. This dilemma is far more complex than it seems since regulators are confronted here with an array of challenging questions: firstly, can these sharing economy practices be qualified as "innovations" worth protecting and encouraging? Secondly, should the regulation of these practices serve the same goals as the existing rules for the equivalent commercial services (e.g. taxi regulations)? Thirdly, how can regulation keep up with the evolving nature of these innovative practices? All these questions, come down to one simple problem: too little is known about the most socially effective ways of consistently regulating and promoting innovation.
