Ο Κέβιν Κέλι επιχειρηματολογεί για την εξάλειψη της ιδέας της ιδιοκτησίας, τουλάχιστον σε ότι φορά σε έργα "της διάνοιας" όπως τα λένε, μουσική, ταινίες, βιβλία.
Very likely, in the near future, I won’t "own" any music, or books, or movies. Instead I will have immediate access to all music, all books, all movies using an always-on service, via a subscription fee or tax. I won’t buy – as in make a decision to own — any individual music or books because I can simply request to see or hear them on demand from the stream of ALL. I may pay for them in bulk but I won’t own them. The request to enjoy a work is thus separated from the more complicated choice of whether I want to "own" it. I can consume a movie, music or book without having to decide or follow up on ownership.
