Here is an article by David Bollier on the “Renaissance of the Science Commons“. It outlines few basic dynamic of academic communities to produce and share knowledge  in spite of corporate and institutional pressures for enclosing research within propriety rights fences.  Bollier identifies three means at the disposal of researchers  to regain control over their work “1) commons made possible by new software architectures; 2) commons based on innovative legal structures; and 3) institutional commons.”
