Who owns the World’s Knowledge is a unique collection of essays on questions more relevant to global society than ever: Who owns existing knowledge, who can access it and how does its availability shape our world? This book presents the perspectives of eight thinkers called together by the think tank Convoco, which facilitates interdisciplinary debates on questions of socio-economical relevance. This edition explores the influence of the digital age on global society and its consequences on intellectual property. These new observations embed themselves on an analysis of our heritage and history of knowledge.
