<blockquote>"Commons" refers to a particular institutional form of structuring the rights to access, use, and control resources. (...) The salient characteristic of commons, as opposed to property, is that no single person has exclusive control over the use and disposition of any particular resource in the commons. Instead, resources governed by commons may be used or disposed of by anyone among some (more or less well-defined) number of persons, under rules that may range from "anything goes" to quite crisply articulated formal rules that are effectively enforced.<ref>[http://yupnet.org/benkler/archives/12#3 Chapter 3: Peer Production and Sharing]</ref></blockquote>

The term ''commons'' is increasingly getting more popular. In June 2004, a Google search for “commons” turned up 6.3 million hits. That search repeated in November 2008 yielded 255 million — 40 times as many references in just over four years. Internet growth accounts for a part of this gain, but it’s clear that the phrase "commons" and the wealth of ideas behind it are entering popular consciousness.<ref>[http://www.onthecommons.org/content.php?id=2302 The Commons Moment Is Now]</ref>
