Author: Boyle, J.
Title: Shamans, Software and Spleens: Law and the Construction of the Information Society
Date: 1996 Cambridge, MA
Publisher: Harvard University Press
Boyle argues the case of common folk in the information age. If information wealth stratifies our society in the same way that financial affluence and fame currently do, what will be the future face of humanity? Boyle raises troubling questions about intellectual property and about the prudence and morality of legal protections for people who would limit others’ access to information held to be proprietary, confidential, or of a special nature or value.
