The Public Domain Enclosing the Commons of the Mind

Publisher description: "Our music, our culture, our science and our economic welfare all depend on a delicate balance between those ideas that are controlled and those that are free, between intellectual property and the public domain. In The Public Domain: Enclosing the Commons of the Mind (Yale University Press) James Boyle introduces readers to the idea of the public domain and describes how it is being tragically eroded by our current copyright, patent, and trademark laws. In a series of fascinating case studies, Boyle explains why gene sequences, basic business ideas and pairs of musical notes are now owned, why jazz might be illegal if it were invented today, why most of 20th century culture is legally unavailable to us, and why today's policies would probably have smothered the World Wide Web at its inception. Appropriately given its theme, the book will be sold commercially but also made available online for free under a Creative Commons license.".

This third edition is basically the same as the second. However, IPA phonetic symbols are used more consistently throughout, the data in many examples and problems have been rechecked in the sources and corrected where necessary, and some of the references have been updated. Although some users might prefer a more extensive revision, I hope the present edition will help continue to fill the need for a text that is oriented to the student interested in interaction with data from previously unstudied or little studied languages.
