A Politics of Intellectual Property: Environmentalism for the Net?
This Essay argues that we need a politics, or perhaps a political economy, of intellectual property. Using the controversy over copyright on the Internet as a case study and the history of the environmental movement as a comparison, it offers a couple of modest proposals about what such a politics might look like-- what theoretical ideas it might draw upon, and what constituencies it might unite.
