Right to Copy

Ein neues Magazin, das sich kritisch damit auseinandersetzt, was
Copyright für die Kunst bedeutet, das ist der Plan. Der Plan des
Amsterdamer Journalisten Chris Woolfrey. Die erste Ausgabe mit
Beiträgen von Jonathan Lethem oder Cory Doctorow soll per Crowdfunding
finanziert werden.

some old stuff

>>> Sabine, Nuss (2005) Digital goods and the concept of the commons.
>>> In: Proceedings "2005 Left Forum", New York, NY, USA.
>>> Abstract
>>> A lot of scholars and activists don't question the social form of the
>>> private good - in contrast they praise the market and the form of the
>>> private good as efficient and well installed - for certain goods.
>>> Accordingly, most of the advocates of the commons concept defend it only
>>> for certain goods and they justify that with a diffuse mixture of material
>>> consistence and normative claims. They ignore that under capitalist
>>> circumstances public goods are functional for the capital itself and that
>>> they are a pure social construction, so that they will be transformed
>>> in a private good as soon as its profitable for capital and as long it is
>>> not in the interest of the nation state to keep control over these goods -
>>> as it is the case in the national defense. If one wishes to withdraw goods
>>> from commodification then its better not to justify that with any material
>>> consistence but rather with a clear political statement against the social
>>> form of private goods. That requires rethinking and questioning this form,
>>> which is obviously the prevailing and seldom challenged form in which
>>> everything tends to transform, dependent on technological, legal and
>>> ideological means and dependent on the state of the art of capitalism.
>>> --------------
