Open source as social organization of production and as a form of technological innovation based on a new conception of property rights

"Open source exposes the new logic of organisation of production in a knowledge intensive economic process. The development of software is made up of digitally encoded knowledge that combines from the bottom up in the process of production. Furthermore, as mentioned above, open source is an experiment in production built around a distinctive notion of property. The traditional notion of property is based on the right to exclude the non owners from the use of something that is owned by someone. On the other hand, open source property is configured around the right to distribute, not the right to exclude. This is in fact in the tradition of 'fair use' of intellectual products that are used without securing their property. Under an extended notion of fair use, no individualĀ“s fair use will be permitted to constrain subsequent fair use by another individual and for any purpose. (On 'fair use', and the transformation of the notion of intellectual property rights see the definitive analysis by Lawrence Lessig 'Free Culture' , 2004)"
