Brett M. Frischmann

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores how infrastructure theory applies to cultural-intellectual resources and delineates a class of infrastructure referred to as intellectual infrastructure. It is organized into four sections. It begins in Section A with the idea of the cultural environment as infrastructure. Section B describes the economic characteristics of intellectual resources. Section C focuses on applying the infrastructure criteria to delineate intellectual infrastructure. Section D considers intellectual property laws. It examines intellectual property laws as a semi-commons regime and compares it to the regulatory semi-commons discussed in the previous chapter.

Keywords:   infrastructure theory, cultural-intellectual resources, cultural environment, intellectual resources, intellectual property laws
