Abstract [en]

This book takes the concept of piracy as a starting point to discuss the instabilityof property as a social construction and how this is spatially situated. Piracyis understood as acts and practices that emerge in zones where the constructionand definition of property is ambiguous. Media piracy is a frequently usedexample where file-sharersand copyright holders argue whether culture andinformation is a common resource to be freely shared or property to be protected.This book highlights that this is not a dilemma unique to immaterialresources: concepts such as property, ownership and the rights of use are just asdiffuse when it comes to spatial resources such as land, water, air or urban space.By structuring the book around this heterogeneous understanding of piracy asan analytical perspective, the editors and contributors advance a transdisciplinaryand multi-theoreticalapproach to place and property. In doing so, thebook moves from theoretical discussions on commons and property to empiricalcases concerning access to and appropriation of land, natural and culturalresources. The chapters cover areas such as maritime piracy, the philosophicaland legal foundations of property rights, mining and land rights, biopiracy andtraditional knowledge, indigenous rights, colonization of space, military expansionismand the enclosure of urban space.This book is essential reading for a variety of disciplines including indigenousstudies, cultural studies, geography, political economy, law, environmentalstudies and all readers concerned with piracy and the ambiguity of property.
