Who Owns The Internet?
from the it's-a-range-war dept
It seems that many "public goods" over time end up being privatized. Newsweek has a review of David Bollier's Silent Theft: The Private Plunder of Our Common Wealth, which talks about how corporations are fighting to "own" the internet - which until recently really was a public good. It's unclear, though, if the book considers this constant privatization as a good thing or a bad thing (or, for that matter, neutral).
