About this product
- DescriptionWith the radical changes in information production that the Internet has introduced, we stand at an important moment of transition, says Yochai Benkler in this thought-provoking book. The phemen he describes as social production is reshaping markets, while at the same time offering new opportunities to enhance individual freedom, cultural diversity, political discourse, and justice. But these results are by means inevitable: a systematic campaign to protect the entrenched industrial information ecomy of the last century threatens the promise of today's emerging networked information environment. In this comprehensive social theory of the Internet and the networked information ecomy, Benkler describes how patterns of information, kwledge, and cultural production are changing--and shows that the way information and kwledge are made available can either limit or enlarge the ways people can create and express themselves. He describes the range of legal and policy choices that confront us and maintains that there is much to be gained--or lost--by the decisions we make today.
