all physical commons pose the question of ownership ... i.e. whose
'community' is it ..

think of traditional knowledge, which is being fought over by traditional
communities, their nation-states, and private enclosers, and those who would
like it to be a global commons ..

citizen-type commons can be solved through peter barnes trusts proposals,
