The paper offers a response to a fixed thematic question involving the impact of globalization's communications on rights of expression, democracy and the ideal of the communications commons that may or may not be aided by the current climate. The paper discusses the 'enclosure' of communication vs. the democratic capability attached to Internet communication. This critical position is taken in view of temporal nature of "All Change;" the need to wait to see what is happening in the political economy in relation to the communications theory.

From the Paper:

"This paper addresses debate on the enclosure of public communication versus a right to communicate that is seen as essential in our day. As is explained, the solution to a changed realm of communication and its limitation is thought to lie in a guaranteed right to communicate. In an almost sinister way, our day is one in which this right may be impossible to realize, even in developed democratic societies. As Boyle notes, issues of enclosure as opposed to the 'right' to information, knowledge, or communication are now much debated."
