    In the introduction the problematic of organisation together with the conceptual role of property in social organisation were identified as starting points for the essay. A map of the essay was followed by a selective review of the social history of the perennial nature of creative resistance to capitalism. The review led to an understanding of the conception of rights that underpins commoning. As collective rights, as collective powers-to, commoning is a counter point to exclusive, private property rights. The essay unfolded from there. Chapter 1 asked questions concerning organisation and property in relation to the politics of Free Culture and Free Software. The libertarian values and liberal, economistic conceptualisations that define Free Culture and Free Software, we saw, turn on a problematic distinction between the tangible and intangible realm, which results in a series of problems, specifically with regard to property. Chapter 2 began to develop the tools needed for answering the questions raised in Chapter 1. A conceptual framework of property that allowed for an analysis of private property and commoning on equal terms was developed. The framework revealed various ways of reconfiguring property relations and thus facilitate self-articulation. Chapter 3 brought the essay together by, starting from an anticapitalist position, applying the tools and concepts developed in Chapter 2 as a response to the conflicts identified and questions raised in Chapter 1.
