Reading Analysis #4

594 words - 3 pages

This reading for this week was From Goods to a Good Life: Intellectual Property and Global Justice by Madhavi Sunder. The reading I chose to put into convocation with the first article was The Public Domain: Enclosing the Commons of the Mind by James Boyle.

Sunder mentions information technologies such as the Internet and their usefulness in permitting niche cultures to thrive and allowing many people to create their own, collaborate on, and consume cultural works. Moreover, increased access to these technologies would aid in creating a fair culture.
Even if it’s not obvious in Boyle’s article, both articles paint education as crucial to improving intellectual property law. Boyle hints at...
