Review: The Public Domain: Enclosing the Commons of the Mind

The Public Domain: Enclosing the Commons of the Mind The Public Domain: Enclosing the Commons of the Mind by James Boyle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So everyone should read this book that is ever thinking of making anything in any form that they may or may not want credit for (either in accolades or payment). It's a great book for understanding the complexities of the public domain and the ways in which ensuring there is indeed a public commons of works after a reasonable time has passed from its creation (that is, current copyright is ridiculous) ensures a rich and vibrant culture. Additionally, it is a book that practices what it preaches and is indeed available in digital for free on its website.
