today, in an ever expanding collective immersion in identically reproducible things – there is nothing in the digital habitat that can’t be copied –, tables have turned. if everything can be copied, originality and the expression of authorship change their position in cultural topology – a change that has massive impacts on the concept of intellectual property in the whole spectrum of our ways of dealing with reality.
the turn bears tremendous implications for the formation of the emerging digital global societies. post-Snowden, we only slowly begin to understand how the digitalization of everything is affect- ing our day-to-day reality and the Gestaltung of urban spaces.
in Case 5: The Intellectual Property Issue, The Anxious Prop sets out to launch a public complot to intervene in the issue of intellectual property in the digital habitat by way of a collective public intervention and a new edition of the AXP feuilleton.
