This essay looks at the use of the internet for open content from the perspective of the 'tragedy of the commons'. I think the main utility of the article is that it shows that the internet is very different from a pasture - it (and this is my perspective now) is kind of like a pasture that keeps growing and growing, a pasture characterized by abundance rather than scarcity.
