I’ve begun to collect quite a collection of good books on the theme of Ownership. The quest started a few years ago; thinking about the birth of my son, I realized what I care most about these days is digital. And as any astute EULA reader would know, we don’t own what we buy from Apple, Google, or Amazon – we merely rent.
I started a company to enable ownership of digital things. I’m interested in how, albeit with a western bias, we have been building up properly law for 1,000+ years. But since the 1970s we have been screwing it up.
This is the first post of (hopefully) many as I try to work out what is OWNERSHIP in a more public way.
