de Rosnay MDulong, De Martin JCarlos. The public domain: Foundations for an Open Culture. Cambridge: Open Book Publishers; 2012:220. Available at:
The public domain is the sovereign space of all citizens of the world. Like the air we breathe, it is free for all people to use, without restriction, no rights reserved. Our public ownership of this domain of knowledge should be understood as a fundamental human right to access our shared knowledge, the use of which is not the result of a grant by any specific government. Op de site van Communia staat meer informatie.   Uitgangspunten voor het publieke domein (eisen) zijn: 1. The public domain is the rule, copyright protection is the exception. 2. Copyright protection should last only as long as necessary to achieve a reasonable compromise between protecting and rewarding the author for his intellectual labour and safeguarding the public interest in the dissemination of culture and knowledge. 3. What is in the public domain must remain in the public domain. 4. The lawful user of a digital copy of a public domain work should be free to (re-)use, copy and modify such work. 5. Contracts or technical protection measures that restrict access to and re-use of public domain works must not be enforced. Aanvullingen op de uitgangspunten (wensen): 1. The voluntary relinquishment of copyright and sharing of protected works are legitimate exercises of copyright exclusivity. 2. Exceptions and limitations to copyright, fair use and fair dealing need to be actively maintained to ensure the effectiveness of the fundamental balance of copyright and the public interest. Aanbevelingen voor het publieke domein 1. The term of copyright protection should be reduced. 2. Any change to the scope of copyright protection (including any new definition of protectable subject-matter or expansion of exclusive rights) needs to take into account the effects on the public domain. 3. When material is deemed to fall in the structural public domain in its country of origin, the material should be recognized as part of the structural public domain in all other countries of the world. 4. Any false or misleading attempt to misappropriate public domain material must be legally punished. 5. No other intellectual property right must be used to reconstitute exclusivity over public domain material. 6. There must be a practical and effective path to make available "orphan works" and published works that are no longer commercially available (such as out-of-print works) for re-use by society. 7. Cultural heritage institutions should take upon themselves a special role in the effective labeling and preserving of public domain works. 8. There must be no legal obstacles that prevent the voluntary sharing of works or the dedication of works to the public domain. 9. Personal non-commercial uses of protected works must generally be made possible, for which alternative modes of remuneration for the author must be explored.

Information is notoriously a polymorphic phenomenon and a polysemantic concept so, as an explicandum, it can be associated with several explanations, depending on the level of abstraction adopted and the cluster of requirements and desiderata orientating a theory. The reader may wish to keep this in mind while reading this article, where some schematic simplifications and interpretative decisions will be inevitable.
