Explores how notions of ownership have shifted in the digital marketplace, and makes an argument for the benefits of personal… property. E-books, cloud storage, streaming, and other digital goods offer users convenience and flexibility. But consumers should be aware of the trade-offs involving user constraints, permanence, and privacy. The rights of private property are clear, but few people manage to read their end user agreements. The authors argue that introducing aspects of private property and ownership into the digital marketplace would offer both legal and economic benefits. But more importantly, it would affirm our sense of self-direction and autonomy. If we own our purchases, we are free to make whatever lawful use of them we please. Technology need not constrain our freedom; it can also empower us. 2016.

More and more of our social, political and religious activities are modelling themselves after the World Wide Web. A committed… anarchist, Vaidhyanathan shows how the key information structure of our time is the 'peer-to-peer network'.

And they are drawing the outlines of a battle for information that will determine much of the culture and politics of our century. Everything from culture to terrorism and extremist politics to religion will be affected. 2005.
