Abstract: This article discusses an intrinsic case study which demonstrates the convergence of decentralized online and offline ways of sharing knowledge. We describe a new techno-economic form of value creation and distribution in relation to the knowledge commons and the publishing industry. Moreover, the dynamics and challenges of an emerging commons-based copyright license, named Peer Production License, are outlined. We conclude by arguing that this intrinsic case study could build bridges across languages and cultures, and enable concrete, material commoning practices.
