Knowledge Power introduces the interconnected roles of intellectual property, information, and privacy and explores the evolution of the domestic and international rules that govern them. What roles are played by governments, individuals, firms, and others in shaping our knowledge world? How will the rules that we create - or unquestioningly accept - affect the contours of global society and of our own lives? Marlin-Bennett's provocative exposition highlights the tensions between market interests and privacy, and between property rights and obligations, that have been exacerbated by the new digital technologies. It is an impressively clear introduction to an exceedingly difficult subject.
