--Poor Richard (talk) 16:18, 23 May 2014 (UTC) We speak of native cultures and their property customs but show ignorance of our own cultures' laws and legal history. The terms and definitions in the p2pf discussion of nondominium appear to fall within the scope of US and UK trust law (land trusts, beneficial trusts, trustees, beneficiaries, etc.) Reinventing the wheel can lead to a weakening and obfuscation of existing remedies --Poor Richard (talk) 16:18, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Answer from Tiberius Brastaviceanu: --- Richard, I think we should distinguish here between the nondominium form of property as it is conceived by individuals who engage in it, on one side, AND the embodiment of this set of relations into a legal form, within existing legal frameworks. When you mention a trust you're already deeply committed to a specific legal framework and you have already identified a legal form that can be used. Yes, in western world we can use a trust to enact the nondominium form of property. I am not sure though that this legal tool will do entire justice to the concept.
