Scientific collaboration faces the challenges related to control of
patents and copyright.
Speaking with a curator who worked with art/science incubator projects
one of the
problems they had was that as the projects progressed the participation became
mired in issues of ownership.

Howard Rheingold is working on a course
Toward a literacy of cooperation - How do we understand cooperation?

It might be useful to work on this kind of structural shift as more of the
journals are being published openly so there is likely to be increased need for
participants to understand collaborative practice.
