 +====== Media, Knowledge & Education: Cultures and Ethics of Sharing ======
 +
 +
 +University of Innsbruck, Austria\\ ​
 +18 and 19 November 2011

 +Sharing ​ has emerged as one of the core cultural values native to the networked ​ environment where information has many properties of a classic public ​ good, that is, it is non-rivalrous in use and nonexcludable in access. ​ As Manuel Castells (2009, p. 126) puts it: "In our society, the  protocols of communication are not based on the sharing of culture but  on the culture of sharing."​ IT-based innovation has increasingly ​ impacted on the way individuals share information and recently forced ​ society into a discourse about what can, should, must or even must not  be shared. Yet, the sharing of information has been discussed primarily ​ from the point of view of copyright (free licenses, law enforcement,​ law  reforms) and from the economic perspective (new modes of production, ​ business models, potential to turn around industries, financing the  'first copy'​). \\ 
 +\\ 
 +With this conference, we move beyond these  aspects and shift the focus to the cultural and normative dimensions of  sharing. What are the values embedded in this informational '​culture of  sharing'?​ How do they differ across various contexts, organizational and  social practices? How do these relate to, transform, and possibly ​ conflict with other value sets dominant in organizations and society? ​ How does the widespread use of online sharing platforms affect ​ organizations and society?
