Do We Own What We Buy?

Aaron Perzanowski, Case Western Reserve University

21-Nov-16 18:00

Do We Own What We Buy?

You're a big fan of Harry Potter. You walk into a bookstore and you buy a book and an e-book. You may think you own both copies but do you really? Think about it, can you lend, resell, or leave that e-book in your will? We speak to Aaron Perzanowski about the changing idea of ownership. He is the author of The End of Ownership: Personal Property in the Digital Economy.
