Vom freien Internet zur postdigitalen Gesellschaft
Politische Ökonomie im Diskurs der Netzbewegung
For the last ten years, the political discourse of Germany’s Digital Rights Movement has centered around a highly idealistic notion of a “free internet”, whereas questions regarding societal relations of production that shape digital economies have been neglected. Recent developments in the field of internet policy and digital rights show that the internet is subjected to capital interests which have been underestimated by the movement. However, the movement is capable to develop a perspective of transformation, stemming from activists’ social practice that is characterized by commons-based production.
