Read our Featured Commoner Interview for an explanation of how Bollier became interested in digital commons movement, how he sees the its long term impact shaping up, and much in between.

Copyright law has trouble accepting the idea of the commons as a vehicle of socially created value. That’s why the Creative Commons licenses are such a brilliant innovation.
