“The Second Enclosure Movement” by James Boyle

At times we come across an idea we really wanted to share despite all the mundane distractions. Here is a 2003 paper by James Boyle titled the “The Second Enclosure Movement.” He discusses issues we are facing in balancing the older Intellectual Property regimes against the rising user creativity. I especially like Boyle discussing I.P. as a regime to protect the “noblest of human productions” which should be “free as air.” But there is little clarity to how we can balance the playing field due to the lack of understand of the myriad of “public domains” we are trying to protect.
