Who owns the future? This is the question we ask in this issue of FO/Futureorientation, referring to legal intellectual property rights, which try to prevent people other than the originator from using the idea, the system, the method, the product, the work, or the invention of which the originator claims exclusive ownership. This legal protection of intellectual products is enforced by, among other mechanisms, copyright law. It is from this that we have the famous © symbol that graces the front page.
