What do you mean by “intellectual freedom”?


#1

Freedom of thought and expression. The term has broad connotations, e.g., struggle against censorship. WIFO’s use is derived from contrast with “intellectual property” but is also meant to highlight “IP” itself as censorship, and as a regime which provides cover to censorship and harms democratic discourse. WIFO is not focused on “traditional” free speech issues but does broadly support free speech and aims to convince free speech activists of the importance of “IP” as a threat to their concerns and of the benefits to democratic discourse to be obtained from commons that go beyond countering IP; Again see Freedom in the Commons: Towards a Political Economy of Information.
