Abstract

Analyzes the possible relationships between immaterial commons (i. e., the practices of sharing around intellectual or cultural goods) and commodification (the process of turning something into a commodity: a private good produced to satisfy market needs); in particular, it poses the question of whether commodification can arise in or from within a commons, and how do so-called “open business models” affect that possibility.

Keywords: intellectual commons, commodification, open business models

JEL Classification: D7, O3, P16
