‘The Zero Marginal Cost Society’, by Jeremy Rifkin - FT.com

‘The Zero Marginal Cost Society’, by Jeremy Rifkin - FT.com | Crowdsourcing, collective intelligence and the wisdom of the crowds -  with Peer to Patent as a great example | Scoop.it

The Zero Marginal Cost Society: The Internet of Things, the Collaborative Commons, and the Eclipse of Capitalism, by Jeremy Rifkin, Palgrave Macmillan, RRP£16.99/RRP$28, 368 pages

PauletteP's insight:

According to Rifkin " If the marginal cost of producing each additional item falls to essentially nothing, then everything becomes free. In their pursuit of profit, businesses will have irrevocably undermined their own margins: capitalism will have destroyed itself" This will be replaced by "a civilisation based on a new and more fulfilling communitarianism, free of the hang-ups that have characterised the materialistic individualism of the late capitalist age."

Making Room for Cooperative Innovation by Liza Vertinsky :: SSRN

Making Room for Cooperative Innovation by Liza Vertinsky :: SSRN | Crowdsourcing, collective intelligence and the wisdom of the crowds -  with Peer to Patent as a great example | Scoop.it
PauletteP's insight:

In this Article Vertinsky uses two examples –the risk of crowding out crowd science and the battle between proprietary software companies and free open source software platforms - to illustrate how patent law in its current form may sometimes impede beneficial cooperation in innovation. She then looks at how to limit the negative effects of patents in contexts of cooperative innovation without undermining the patent system.

Open Innovation 2.0: Is Co-Creation the Ultimate Challenge? by Thierry Rayna, Ludmila Striukova :: SSRN | Crowdsourcing, collective intelligence and the wisdom of the crowds -  with Peer to Patent as a great example | Scoop.it
PauletteP's insight:

Web 2.0 has considerably increased the possibilities of user involvement in the production process and, thereby, has given rise to new forms of co-creation.

The aim of this article is to provide possible routes to address such challenges. To do so, an input-output typology of co-creation is created. This typology is then used to discuss the main challenges of co-creation: incentives, risks and costs, IPRs.
