Sharing : crime against capitalism (book)

Author: Matthew DavidToday's economic system premised on the sale of physical goods does not fit the information age we live in. The capitalist order requires the maintenance of an artificial scarcity in goods that have the potential for near infinite and almost free replication. The sharing of informational goods through distributed global networks digital libraries, file-sharing, live-streaming, free software, free-access publishing, the free-sharing of scientific knowledge, and open-source pharmaceuticals not only challenges the dominance of a scarcity-based economic system, but also enables a more efficient, innovative, just and free culture. In a series of seven explorations of contemporary sharing, Matthew David shows that these surpass markets, private ownership and intellectual property rights in fostering motivation, creativity, innovation, production, distribution and reward.
