The adaptation of the "commons" to the realm of knowledge and information is a relatively recent phenomenon. Prior to the mid-1990s, the commons referred almost exclusively to shared land to and other types of natural resources (Hess 2000). The commons conveys the notion of shared ownership, participation, and responsibility. Where the term "commons" has recently arisen, as with scientific information and the intellectual public domain, it is a rallying cry to protect and sustain free access.
