Reviews

Governing Knowledge Commons comes at the right time with the right mix of case studies for inferences on when, how, and for how long, commons institutions can provide production incentives while mitigating those for free riding. Increasingly, advances in knowledge, research, and solutions to economic and social problems occur where individual property rights are absent. Common property institutions can make productive cooperation possible, and this volume helps in understanding the linkages between the commons and creativity. Gary D. Libecap, Bren School of Environmental Science and Management , Economics Department, University of California, Santa Barbara, and National Bureau of Economic Research The editors and contributing authors for this work are leaders in the movement to create a better understanding of knowledge commons governance, which holds the promise of leading to greatly improved innovation economics and processes. They are to be commended for creating this really excellent collection. Eric von Hippel, T. Wilson Professor of Innovation Management, MIT Sloan School of Management Around 1985 Richard Stallman invented 'copyleft' to enforce sharing among dispersed computer programmers. Since then many other governed commons have evolved, or been recognized, using the tools of Elinor Ostrom and her co-workers. This valuable work unites structured analysis with case histories to further our understanding of how different sharing communities work. This is crucial information for societies hoping to resolve the dilemmas now afflicting the production, preservation, adaptation, and interplay of intellectual products. Wendy J. Gordon, William Fairfield Warren Distinguished Professor and Professor of Law, Boston University This book takes up the challenge of examining the governance of 'knowledge commons' involving the sharing and creation of data, information, and knowledge. It extends the Institutional Analysis and Development (IAD) framework developed by Elinor Ostrom to study natural resource commons and applies the adapted framework to study a set of very interesting cases. The result is a fascinating collection of cases studies of knowledge commons ranging from the Galaxy Zoo citizen science/crowd-sourcing project to Open Source Software and the Sourceforge repository. Tony Hey, Vice President, Microsoft Research
